Beautiful bride Manuela was kind enough to share her fantastic wedding with us. On the day she wore a stunning Jenny Packham gown and hair decoration along with our elegant Leila Gold shoes. 

Manuela and Maurizio’s wedding couldn’t have been in a more enchanting setting – The Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano, Rome – Italy.



Here’s a wonderful description of their day, kindly provided by Manuela.

“Our wedding was chic and informal, at least this is what others say and actually that was what I really wanted.

We wanted to have a big party but with elegance and style. 

Everything started with my dress ‘Hyacinth’ from Jenny Packham with whom I fell in love from the first moment I saw it in magazines and I was lucky that it was the best fit for me.“





“After I bought the dress I started looking for the right shoes, and I started panicking because I couldn’t believe that in a country like Italy, famous for the most beautiful shoe makers and fashion brands, I could not find the right shoes for my dress and it was only one month left.

Manuela then decided to ask Jenny Packham in London and they recommended Emmy London and she fell in love with our Leila Gold shoes.



The Leila Gold Shoes - “Made all the difference to my outfit! The Leila shoes are super beautiful and very comfortable. I danced until 4 am in the morning without any need to change shoes. Everybody loved my shoes and were all asking please show me the shoes and my shoes became part of our stop motion video.”

“One of my favourite parts of the wedding is when I entered the church at 5pm on July 6 in Rome - which is supposed to be very hot and sunny – but immediately a big rain storm started. You can imagine how I felt, when you organise your wedding to take place mostly on terraces and it is raining! However no matter what I was so excited and happy to be getting married and enjoying the day that I forgot about the rain."



 "Then we arrived at the reception at the Castle in Bracciano and we found out that the weather was sunny so everything went super well and we enjoyed a lovely sunset on the lake. We had a lovely and fun night at the reception in the Castle where we were able to enjoy our day with family and friends (more than 170 guests…you know Italian weddings! In an historical and beautiful place.” 




 Manuela and Maurizio’s wedding looked full of fun and love!

Congratulations Manuela & Maurizio!
