My client Ravenel, used Olive Branches with my work on her place cards for her Wedding in La Selva, Tuscany. Olive branches are one of the traditional symbols of an Italian Wedding. It’s often given from the Bride to her Mother in Law. Brides are also known to wear olive branches in their hair, as a sign of fertility, peace and perhaps like an Olympic Athlete – victory! Some strange and some lovely Italian traditions are listed here.
The photography is by the incomparable Italian artist, Leila Scarfiotti.
