The weddings I like most are those in which everything happens in the same location. Bride and groom’s preparation, ceremony, reception, banquet, and party. When everything is just around the corner, you don’t loose time and energy to move from point A to point B (and sometimes, to point C, D, and E).
The best solutions to this kind of weddings are offered by the many small medieval villages (borgo) scattered all around our beautiful country. Some of these villages were turned into pictoresque hotels, fully organized to provide all the facilities and services for the perfect wedding. Claudia and I got married in such a place, “Borgo di Titigano”, in Umbria. We rented the whole place and partied all night long among its square, small alleys, and rustic gardens.
Today we shot a wedding organized in a similar way and in a similar place, “Borgo di Tragliata”, close to Rome. Bride and groom got prepared in the beautiful country-style rooms, then they got married in the cozy village-church at the top of the hill, everybody enjoyed the antipasto offered in the gardens, then dinner in the mansion, and party in the terrace.
It was a tasteful wedding, full of sweet people. And it was a wedding full of old friends. Not among the attendants, we didn’t happen to know any of them, but the wedding planners from WeddInProgress and the musicians from Arpa were all good friends of ours. They are very good at what they do, so working with them is always a pleasure.
