Londoners, Lindsay and Ryan, carefully chose Castillo Vicarello, in Tuscany to play host to their nearest and dearest for their destination wedding. With a venue this amazing, they aimed for a natural glamour that let the setting speak for itself and still managed to integrate details that spoke to their modern sensibilities and add a little sparkle. Guests were welcomed to the ceremony with cocktails invented by a mixologist friend, Lindsay walked down the aisle to a gentle acoustic rock n roll track mixed by another friend, votives swirled around the lawn during dinner and dancing, and the disco was ignited with a confetti bomb.
