A Cozy wedding at Villa Petrolo

If you’re looking for inspiration for your wedding in Tuscany, then this might be the place for you. Villa Petrolo is a venue that has everything that your wedding in Italy should have: history, stunning surroundings, and the highest quality of food and wine. We have been working at this breathtaking location many times before, and every time is like the first.

All at the same place

Thanks to the villa’s many rooms and spaces, everything was planned in the most comfortable way. Both the bride and groom were getting ready at the same building. Also, the ceremony was set under a large tree, in the backyard, while the reception and dinner took place in front of the residence.

The civil ceremony

A simple blessing or a symbolic ceremony is not gonna be enough for you? Then, it’d be useful to know that Petrolo is also one of the few places of its kind where you can actually have a legal wedding. In this case, Michele and Pia at Olive in Love will surely be happy to help you taking care of documents and procedures.

After exchanging rings and sharing their first kiss as husband and wife, Christina and Mikkel exited beneath a shower of confetti. At the end of the aisle, an Italian folk street band was waiting for them and their guests. And so, they led everybody to the reception, playing along the way.

Danish Wedding Traditions

 If you have ever participated in a Danish wedding, you have surely noticed the many quaint wedding traditions.

For instance, during the dinner, if the bride leaves the room the female guests at the party will run-up to the groom and kiss him! The opposite occurs if the groom leaves the room – all of the men will move to the bride to kiss her!

Also, when the guests carefully hit their glasses with their knives, the bride and groom must kiss standing on their chairs. Moreover, when the guests stamp on the floor, the couple will kiss underneath the table. So if you are going to a wedding, prepare yourself for a lot of kissing

Then, there’s the brudevals (Bridal Waltz) which is the couple’s First Dance. During the waltz the guests form a circle around the couple clapping and slowly moving in towards the couple. Finally, they surround them by the end of the dance.

This is also when the guests take off the groom’s shoes to cut the toes off of his socks. Apparently, this has to do with making sure he doesn’t go after any other woman now that he’s a married man. Another version is that the groom can see how good his new wife is at sewing.

We hope that this cozy wedding at Villa Petrolo will be an inspiration for your love story. To find out more about our wedding services, please visit the wedding page of our website. Feel free to drop us a line for further info, we’d be happy and honored to a part of your celebrations!
