Real Wedding | Silvia & Francesco

Tell us a little about yourselves!

My name is Silvia Noviello and I’m an Italian wedding content creator and a travel blogger, based in Florence. My husband Francesco Esposito is an  architect and project manager specializing in the construction of luxury shops and hotels. 

Francesco and I first met in Paris, seven years ago. We spent a magical afternoon together walking around and knowing each other. Every corner of Paris, every exchanged glance, carried with it the scent of our first day together. 

There was no need for words, only the heart beating strongly, as if it already knew that we had found our home in each other. It was love at first sight.

How many guests did you have?

We were a bit less than 100 guests, which I think can be defined as an intimate wedding in Italy. The setup was made up of two long tables, the  main one with the bride and groom, parents and witnesses, and the other with all our cousins. Then there were the remaining round tables where allour groups of friends sat.

Tell us about your outfits.

I tried on only one outfit. Well two because I changed the dress before dinner. I completely fell in love with a dress by Jacquemus that I saw in a  fashion show; I knew it would be the dress I wanted to wear for my wedding. Also the other dress was from the designer Simon Porte Jacquemus.

What was the most important aspect for you, in terms of planning  your wedding?

We wanted to share our love with all our family and friends. To carry within us the memory of a magnificent day spent with all our loved ones. The aesthetics of the wedding were clear from the start; I dreamed of the courtyard illuminated by countless lights that framed the dinner. Tables with white tablecloths, simple but elegant, brass candelabras, and many flowers in shades of pink, magenta and amaranth. A playlist that played old Italian songs, nostalgic but touching. 

The atmosphere had to be romantic, magical, yet informal. I wanted all our guests to feel comfortable and to be able to live this moment with us, imprinting it in their memory.

Any tips for couples getting married?

A tip for those wanting to get married in Italy: search and book the venue well in advance of the wedding.  Enjoy every little moment, the wedding it’s not only an aesthetic event, you need to have fun and cry, it’s a moment of pure joy that you will remember forever. Be ready to receive all the love that the people around you, including friends and relatives, want to give you. There will always be some little problem throughout the day of the wedding, but only you can decide which important things you want to take with you. Stop worrying and enjoy this magnificent day!

Are there any vendors that you would like to tell us a little more about?

I dedicate a special thanks to my entire team, starting with Valentina from La Lindi, my fabulous wedding planner. With her, I shared so many moments that a true bond of friendship was formed. 

Another special thanks goes to Barbara Becarelli and her magnificent staff from Nero Fiore, my floral designer, who was able to turn my vision and dream into reality. Her flowers were a true work of art!
