Wedding season is in full swing, and that includes for us at Linea Azzurro, as our Operations Manager, Alexis, tied the knot with her partner Viorel in July.
So, in a change from our usual fashion blog for cashmere inspo, we want to take a moment to look back on the fantastic wedding and the alpacas, yes alpacas, that made the day possible. It’s also a little bit of wedding inspo for all of you brides-to-be.
From the enchanting venue to the smallest decorative details, every aspect was carefully curated by a team of talented individuals, creating an unforgettable wedding day in the Cotswolds.
The Cotswolds wedding venue:
Every love story deserves a perfect beginning, and the wedding of Alexis and Viorel, was nothing short of a fairytale. Set against the picturesque backdrop of the Cotswolds, their special day was a romantic, elegant, and fun. Nestled amidst nature, Stone Barn provided rustic charm in scenic surroundings, setting a magical tone for the entire Cotswolds wedding.
Sally Gill Flowers added beauty and emotion to the wedding day. With an impeccable eye for design and a passion for creativity, they transformed the venue into a floral wonderland. From the breathtaking bouquets to the exquisite table centerpieces, every floral arrangement was a testament to their artistry.
The wedding cake:
Of course, no wedding is complete without a cake, and Flour and Fold exceeded all expectations in every layer of the wedding cake that stood as a centerpiece at the reception. Half vanilla and strawberry, half marble, we can tell you it was absolutely delicious!
The Dress of Dreams:
Alexis found the perfect dress from Pure Couture Bridal. The dress by Madi Lane was a harmonious blend of elegance and sophistication, perfectly suiting the Cotswolds wedding backdrop and still fit for a night of dancing.
A surprise guest:
For a touch of unique charm, Alexis and Viorel surprised their guests with the presence of adorable alpacas from Cotswold Vale Alpacas. These gentle creatures provided a memorable and delightful experience, leaving everyone with heartwarming memories. Who else can say they have been to a wedding with alpacas!
Preserving memories is an essential part of any wedding and professional and stunning photos from Natal J Photography and videography from Rix Weddings, captured every wedding moment, and a private shoot in the cute village of Bibury. And, of course, everyone loves a photo booth, and Birdie Photo Booth let the guests capture their own fun. Their state-of-the-art photo booth captured candid and delightful moments, giving guests the opportunity to create and keep cherished memories. Everyone loves a photobooth!
Ensuring that the bride and her bridesmaids looked stunning was the task of Viki at Fallon Hair and Makeup and Mariella Rodhouse Makeup. Giving the bride and bridal party a gorgeous wedding glow.
The Finishing Touches:
Stationery: Lovestruck Stationery
Tableware: Alba Tableware
Napkins: The Knotted Napkin Co

So absolutely no cashmere (this time) in the Cotswolds, however, Linea Azzurro will be attending the Cotswolds fair, 6-9 November 2023 and would love to see you there.
Alexis wanted to thank the seamless collaboration of all the exceptional suppliers who turned their Cotswolds wedding dreams into reality.
