Rachel & Kristian Real Wedding
Destination Wedding Italy

We met Rachel and Kristian last summer, a young and sparkling couple, she always smiling, he madly in love with his smile, and we liked them immediately! Their story is special, romantic, courageous and made of so much fun!
Together for 15 years they have shared a lot and this wonderful feeling is not only between them but also between their families and breathing it has been really beautiful.
Originally from New Zealand and moved together to London, where they still live, they decided to get married in Italy, in Veneto, a place very meaningful for them because it is from here that Kristian’s family comes.

They decided to celebrate with a hundred guests, between family and friends, so as to turn their wedding into an unforgettable holiday for everyone!
With their closest friends they rented a house with swimming pool in the hills and organized the days before and after the wedding, for us it was a pleasure to be supportive, advising them and helping them in all aspects of logistics and organization.

The wedding day was a wonderful day in mid-July, warm and bright … Rachel got ready in the beautiful room on the first floor of the villa with her bridesmaids and Kristian instead used the four-star hotel room located a stone’s throw from the villa (the hotel has been the perfect accomodation for all the other guests).
The ceremony was prepared with great attention to details, the dominant colors were white and green, in the name of greenery that we like so much, and that blends perfectly with the villa and its park.
At the end of the ceremony the guests could enjoy the garden and taste the Venetian specialties in the rich buffet of appetizers that preceded the dinner served.
During the dinner and the speeches there were moments of great emotion and fun and the guests really liked the menu, all italian, which met all the various needs. There was no lack of excellent wine, Prosecco without limitation and cocktails during the party that continued until 3 am.

We are happy to have played a decisive role in the success of their special day and to have succeeded really well!
It was a pleasure to receive a bunch of thank-you flowers from the newlyweds in the office the next day and their words were the best of the results for us:

“We had an amazing experience with La Mandolina. Cecilia and the team were exceptional from start to end. Communication was great, food & wine was delicious and the attention to detail ensured our wedding was everything we hoped for. We can’t recommend La Mandolina highly enough! “
Rachel and Kristian from London

We wish you a long and happy life together, full of love and laughs!
