Italian Castle Wedding

Italian Castle Wedding

A regal wedding in an ancient palace courtyard.

After a beautiful Catholic Wedding ceremony in the heart of Bologna’s city centre, guests were taken to The Renaissance Court. Upon arrival, a scrumptious Italian cocktail reception welcomed them in the verdant park with the ancient palace in the background.

Guests were then escorted inside the palace, where the drapes were suddenly opened to reveal a regal candlelit dinner in the magnificent courtyard. Long tables, elegant ivory chairs, garlands of greenery and white flowers, and over 200 candles!

Since the theme chosen by the couple was the hexagon, a long wall of hanging gold hexagons, flowers and fairy lights was installed as a backdrop.  From table plan to place cards, table numbers and candleholders, everything was gold and hexagonal.

When everyone was seated, the couple made their grand entrance to the sound of loud music, dancing among the tables while their guests cheered and waved their napkins in the air. A four-course sit down dinner ensued featuring delicious food, wine, laughter and joy.

After dessert, the couple made their toast from a Juliette balcony overlooking the courtyard and invited guests to join the dance party in the elegant frescoed halls of the palace.  Here everything was ready for a buzzing late night party: open bar, dessert tables, photo booth and of course the unmissable midnight pizza!
