We are experts in floral arrangements and installation for weddings and special events.
All installations are designed with care and passion by flower designer Angelica Tricarico. Each floral arrangement is highly customized and it’s the result of the synergy between your visione and Angelica’s own creativity. Angelica loves to share the entire creative process with her clients.
The first step towards choosing the floral arrangements for your wedding is deciding which style is most suited to your event. Wedding style always evolves, like fashion. Read our blog to explore the most up to date possibilities in terms of wedding styles and colours.
What is included in the wedding flower arrangement package?
We have no packages! Our service is highly customized and includes floral arrangements as well as additional decorative objects and accessories. We have a large collection of vessels, candlesticks and candles, arches for ceremonies, cushions, fabrics and all the decorative items that help to creating the set-up for a unique event.
The first location to consider when you design a wedding floral set-up is the room of the bride. You really cannot underestimate the impact of a bouquet of fresh flowers in the getting ready room of the bride, where she will enjoy the bridal party with her bridesmaids.
In the South of Italy, it is customary for the bride’s family to prepare a table in their home with an array of desserts to thank all the neighbours who visit the bride before the ceremony. In this case a flower arrangement on the dessert-table is a must.
The main moments of a wedding are the ceremony and reception. Pay special attention to the centerpieces and to the floral arrangements at the Church or other place for ceremony (civil or symbolic ceremony).
Church wedding decorations
In the case of a symbolic ceremony, there are no particular rules to follow, except those of good taste.
If it is a religious or civil ceremony, the location (such as a Church or municipal house) usually has general rules regarding wedding decorations which must be adhered to.
These rules are due primarily to preserve the location, in order to avoid causing permanent damage to objects. Think of the many historical and artistic locations we have in Italy. In some cases, the rules are dictated also by sobriety.
Above all about Churches, it is a good idea to ask for information to the priest or the sacristan to be aware of these rules before speaking with the floral-designer. Some Church has also a website where you can download the rules regarding wedding decorations.
Doing it before visiting the floral designer it’s important because in this way you will have a clearer idea beforehand of how many and what style of floral arrangements are alllowed. For exemple you need to know if the installation of a carpet is allowed along the aisle of the Church and if are available the typical pew and kneeler for bride and groom. In cases where these are not available, they will need to be requested from the florist.
In general, it is always recommended to decorate the outside of the Church, close to the entrance doors, where guests stand while they wait for the bride’s arrival, and where the typical rice and petals toss takes place at the end of the ceremony. A stunning floral arrangement can be the backdrop for these unforgettable moments. As for the interior decoration of the Church, however, the main rule is sobriety.
A beautifully decorated isle for the bride to walk along is spectacular, however, this type of decor is not always granted for the reasons we mentioned earlier. Therefore the church decorations often focus on or around the area of the altar.
In any case we do not like too much decorations on the main altar that is often already very decorative, as in the case of the Baroque churches. We prefer instead to concentrate our attention on the focal point of the ceremony, placing floral arrangements that optically frame the bride and the groom, such as two tall vases on their sides.
When it comes to decorating the wedding reception, however, there’s no limit to what can be done! The reception’s centrepieces can often be the most fun to create alongside the floral designer.
The possibilities to personalise the designs are endless. From the choice of flowers and colours to the combination of all the items that can be used on the table such as vessels, candlesticks and candles, that combined with a conscious choice of tablecloths, menus and mis en place will make every wedding centrepiece unique!
If you have chosen a daytime wedding, flowers are the centre stage. If, instead, you have chosen an evening wedding, then you can create a special centrepiece combining floral arrangements with lot of candles scattered on the tables to compliment the atmosphere.
There are endless possibilities for centeprieces. For this reason, before going to see the florist, it is a good idea to decide what type of tables will be used at the reception as the centerpieces will be completely different depending on whether round or imperial tables are used.
A round table (or square), needs a central centerpiece, which can be high or low depending on tastes and context.
We recommend very high centrepieces only in cases where the reception is being held in a large room with high ceilings . A mixed variety of centrepieces where some tables have a low centrepiece and others a high one, is also very popular. A higher centrepiece, however, due to the need to maintain the floral composition in proportion with the supporting structure, although spectacular, will tend to be more expensive.
In the case of the popular imperial or rectangular tables, however, we can create a centrepiece using individual arrangements, placed next to each other, perhaps alternating with candles or other decorative elements. Here the floral arrangements can also be high, low or mixed.
Or maybe we can opt for a floral runner, that is a continuous centrepiece, that follows the whole line of the table, creating a full effect. Often these runners are mostly composed by greenery combined with flowers. But you can also create runners composed by only flowers. In this case both the amount of flowers and the construction of the runner will require a considerably higher budget. The floral runner is suitable for both daytime and evening weddings. In the case of the latter we will, of course, add votives and candlesticks along the sides of the runner or among the flowers.

Unique items with special details, carefully selected during our travels. We have a large collection of objects: glass and metal vases, candlesticks and candles of various kinds, structures for events and ceremonies, many types of containers and other sophisticated objects.
The wedding favour is a beautiful gesture, a small gift with which the couple thank their guests for attending the reception.
We propose an olive tree as an ideal wedding favour for a rustic or rustic-chic wedding but it is also suitable for any type of wedding, as long as it can be linked to the style or to the bride and groom in a symbolic way.
This is a small olive sapling, much like a Mediterranean version of a bonsai tree. Unlike a bonsai, however, this sapling can be planted and grown, becoming with time a centennial tree.
Together with our nurseries we have created a perfectly sized tree which can be easily taken transported home by guests while still preserving the charm of the olive tree.
The olive tree is also works well as a favour for a birth or a baptism ceremony, representing a newly born tree that will grow along with the child.
