Italian Castle Wedding

Italian Castle Wedding

A regal Italian wedding wedding in an ancient castle courtyard.

After a beautiful Catholic Wedding ceremony in the heart of Bologna’s city centre, we accompanied guests to The Renaissance Court. The perfect venue for a fabulous Italian castle wedding. The newlyweds welcomed their guests to the cocktail reception in the verdant park in front of the castle.

Guests then made their way inside the palace and we suddenly opened the drapes to reveal a fabulous candlelit dinner in the castle’s courtyard. Long tables, elegant chairs, greenery garlands and over 200 candles!

Since the wedding theme was the hexagon, we installed a long wall of hanging gold hexagons and fairy lights in the backdrop.  From table plan to place cards, table numbers and candleholders, everything was gold and hexagon shaped.

The couple made their grand entrance into the courtyard to the sound of loud music. They danced 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. Like in a fairy tale, the newlyweds dressed as king and queen and invited their guests to join the dances.

In the elegant ballroom everything was ready for a buzzing late night party. Open bar, dessert tables, photo booth and of course  delicious midnight pizza, which can not miss in a true Italian castle wedding!
