PUGLIA

MASSERIA GRIECO

 

E&M held their destination wedding in the gorgeous countryside of Puglia, Italy, at Masseria Grieco. A beautiful venue made entirely of local stone. The day before the wedding, we held a pizza party in the evening along with a local gelato cart which provided that fun atmosphere that would carry on over the next few days. The day of the wedding arrived and the sun was beaming down. The colour scheme of this wedding was whites, blush, greys, coppers and pampas grass.

We worked with a catering team that brought so many fun yet local culinary moments to the day with their mozzarella making in front of the guests and antipasti food stations during the drinks reception. A piano and sax duo played during the reception with modern, jazz style covers.

We designed an edible seating plan for E&M’s guests. We used a packet of taralli per guest (taralli are small, unleavened bread rings that originate in Puglia) so guests could also take these away as favors from the wedding.

The guests dined on four long farmhouse tables for dinner, where they ate a 3 course Italian meal. Following this, E&M made their Millefoglie wedding cake in front of all their guests which provided a unique experience.

Crystal glass was used against soft linen grey napkins, while copper and blush menus with name cards adorned each guests place setting. After dinner the first dance and party was held in an area with a round stone dance floor where they partied the night away.
