Less funny and slightly more terrifying, Aussie bride Laura and her human of choice Nick found themselves just weeks out from their wedding date switching out their planner due to budgets not aligning. “We’re talking a few hundred grand! We ended up changing planner, resulting in the loss of most of our vendors. We pulled through with the help of a brilliant replacement events team, so I guess we can laugh about it now. Almost. But not quite,” explains Laura, who credits the crew at Infinity Weddings for saving the day.

“Infinity Weddings did a fabulous job of picking up the broken pieces just six weeks out from our event, and completely turning the whole thing around. The team brought a really positive energy and went above and beyond,” the couple tells us, who, having travelled and lived around the world, opted for a destination wedding in Italy.

“We have family scattered on virtually every continent and subsequently numerous emotional links with each of these places. We chose the Isle of Capri as it was a new location for us. Neither of us had ever visited before we started the planning process so it was neutral territory in a sense, plus we both adore Italy.”

That being said, it’s no surprise that Laura and Nick chose a traditional Italian millefoglie cake – a tasty treat made up of layers of pastry dough and sweet cream. “I absolutely loved our wedding cake. It was prepared from scratch in front of our guest and it turned into part of the entertainment. It took two chefs about 15 minutes to prepare it, and at the end it was decorated in beautiful, edible flowers. It was stunning and delicious,” says Laura, who adds that her absolute favourite part of the day was singing and dancing through the streets with the famous Scialapopolo group.

“Scialapopolo is a tarantella group full of children and adults who sing and dance to classic regional songs in traditional costume – it’s very Capri. They guided us from our wedding venue to our transport for the reception, stopping along the way in the town square for further singing and dancing. It was brilliant, people recognised us for days afterwards. Turns out I’m not as shy as I thought!”

While the good times (captured by Elisabetta Marzetti)with Scialapopolo Capri, as well as being driven to the ceremony on luggage cars with chairs strapped to the back, were definite highlights, there’s no denying that finally locking things down and agreeing to “help each other become the best humans possible” was the real focus of this special day.
