Wedding dream in the baroque Villa Aurelia in Rome




The location

Rome – a historical city full of contrasts and culture. Multifaceted yet unchanged, historical yet modern, metropolis and rural at the same time. Here you will find the magnificent baroque villa Villa Aurelia embedded in a beautiful park. A breathtaking estate, as if made for an unforgettable wedding.

A stunning estate, a beguiling dress, stylish decorations in nude and natural accents and a delightful bride and groom made their wedding day a glamorous celebration. In the soft afternoon light, surrounded by lemon trees, sprawling gardens and amazing views of Rome, guests celebrated on a long tablescape that spanned the entire estate.


Styling and Planning

With great attention to detail and a sense of beauty, wedding planners Natalie and Daniel of HEA wedding  & event design created a stunning concept that captivated everyone.

From Natalie and Daniel: “Eat – Pray – Love. The movie title, starring Julia Roberts, fits this wedding perfectly. Roma, a setting with multicultural, breathtaking historical background, mysticism, culture and rich in stories that want to be told. We had the pleasure to accompany the bride and groom Hannah and Paul on this exciting journey. To tell their story, a very personal romance novel with exciting chapters, virtually the couple’s bestseller with a wonderful “happy ending” in Rome.

After visiting the location, the minimalist design elements in nude and natural tones were a perfect fit. Less is more, perfect imperfection paired with Italian flair and a breathtaking view over the cosmopolitan city. A long stunning table should be the highlight and the couple’s dream for their wedding. Keeping with the neutral color palette, we decided to keep the ceremony decor very modern and minimalistic, with handmade silk ribbons from Puglia and white peonies along the aisles. The beautiful Renaissance church of San Pietro in Montorio did the rest.

Dolce far niente meets the Austrian wedding couple, grazie for 2 exciting years of planning.”


How it all began…

From Hannah and Paul: “Most of you already know how we met. We can hardly believe it’s been 3 years. But it’s just as incredible that after only 3 years, we can’t imagine living without each other. As life goes, our first meeting was the result of a series of fateful events: Hannah was friends with a group of medical students at the university, along with Paul’s roommate and longtime friend Max and his girlfriend Sophie. A coincidence without which we probably would never have met.

But it took a couple of years, a kiss at a party, a few dates, and a series of after-the-fact hilarious mishaps to turn the two of us into a couple. From that point on, we were inseparable. And now here we are, asking Max and Sophie, who played such an important role in the beginning of our relationship, to be our groomsmen. And with each passing day, the anticipation grew for our wedding, celebrating with our families and best friends. We are so lucky!”
