A Handmade Cooling Castle Barn Wedding with an Italian Vibe

I just know you will fall in love with every detail of Kelly and Luca’s beautiful Cooling Castle Barn wedding. This wedding is so stylish, and if you are looking for inspiration for a castle wedding then look no further! The couple wanted a rustic Italian vibe, and the result is really chic – crisp whites, an abundance of pretty green foliage and pops of copper feature throughout the beautiful styling.

Rustic simplicity and elegance are key. Simple sprigs of rosemary tied with string on the place settings, and copper sequinned table runners with pretty little vases of white flowers create a real wow factor on the tables. There’s also elegant copper calligraphy galore.

Kelly and Luca really thought about the little personal and fun touches to complete their wedding. Each member of their bridal party received a lovely little box filled with little treats, guests received favours in personalised hessian bags, and they even treated their guests to a sweetie buffet and a shot and pimp your Prosecco bar (my kinda wedding!).

When you see these amazing pictures by Michelle Cordner Photography you will see just how much attention to detail Kelly and Luca put into creating their perfect Cooling Castle Barn wedding.

Italian Vibe

“Luca and I wanted our wedding day to represent everything we enjoy and love, and to share it with people we care about. Luca is half Italian so we wanted to introduce an Italian vibe all the way through the wedding, from the food, style, language and even their traditions.

“As soon as we stepped inside Cooling Castle Barn wedding venue we fell in love with the place. Its wooden beams, high ceilings, exposed brick and perfectly kept lawns were exactly what we’d been looking for. It gave our day the relaxed atmosphere we wanted.”
