Rustic Castle Wedding
A dreamy rustic garden wedding in an ancient Italian castle
The ceremony was followed by an outdoor cocktail reception in the verdant gardens, where guests unwind under the shade of the secular trees while sipping Prosecco and tasting the local delicacies. A relaxed atmosphere, framed by the beautiful backdrop of the castle’s ancient walls.
Guests were then escorted into the courtyard, which had been carefully dressed for dinner. White naked chairs, long tables, rustic hessian runners, shabby-chic table settings, hundreds of candles and rich garlands of olive branches, lush ivory peonies, spray roses and berries.
The romantic candle-lit dinner was followed by a spectacular torta a vista, where the maître patissier skilfully built a delicious summer berries wedding cake in front of the guests. The customary cake cut was set in front of the imposing castle gate with the secret garden and the illuminated dovecote as backdrop.
The dance party took place in the elegant frescoed halls of the castle, were everything had been set up for a buzzing late night party. An open bar, yummy dessert tables, glow in the dark balloons, a fun photo booth and plenty of gadgets. The newlyweds let loose on the dancefloor and guests partied until the early hours of the morning.
