Bianca & Francesco   ♥   Lazio, Italy

Photographer:   Bohemian Weddings

 

Italian weddings always look incredible! Each one seems to be oh-so-effortlessly chic and naturally beautiful, filled with family, friends, love and laughter, with a banquet of wonderful food, a non-stop flow of lovely, local vino (of course!) and surrounded by rolling rural hills or sunlit village streets and beautiful buildings.

 

Today’s real wedding is no exception. Bianca and Francesco had a traditional village wedding in a charming chapel, followed by a relaxed garden party reception. The gifted guys from Bohemian Weddings were there to capture the essence of this darling day and they are here today to they tell you more about this idyllic Italian village wedding…

Bohemian Weddings:

“Bianca and Francesco held their wedding in a beautiful hilltop town called Bagnoregio where Bianca grew up. It is about an hours drive from Rome and surrounded by beautiful countryside and full with a maze of narrow streets where everyone knows each other.”

“The chapel they got married in was in the centre of the town and had a cute private square, in this square was also Bianca’s elementary school. Their ceremony was held at midday, Bianca turned up with her mother and bridesmaid in glorious sunshine to the joy of her friends and family.”

 

“She met Francesco at the entrance of the church and they walked in together. The guests could not all fit in the chapel so they spilled out in to the street and all took turns at straining their necks for a peek during the ceremony.”

“After the ceremony there was a small reception in the square under big umbrellas to hide from the sun with champagne, fruit juices and lots of congratulating, hugs and tears.”

 

“The after party celebrations took place Bianca’s mum’s beautiful garden with about 200 guests. A set of old suitcases marked out the table plan and guests were treated to freshly cooked traditional Italian foods. The atmosphere was very relaxed and homely with majority of the guests wearing no shoes, the groom singing with his band, children playing and finger painting the guestbook tree. Each table had a personalised place setting including a crossword!”

“Bianca’s elegant and simple Italian dress was by Max Mara, flowers and decorations were made by the bride and her family. The food, garden furniture and bar were supplied by a friend. The wedding favours were honey with a personalised label and sugar coated almonds.”

“Bagnoregio is a lovely little town, with little streets, orange window shutters, little cafes and friendly people. It is also connected by a small walking bridge to a village called Civita, a historical village that now floats like an island after hundreds of years of erosion. It is one of the most breathtaking places we have ever visited.”
