Wedding in a Masseria in Apulia – Altamura and its magic
Apulia could be a wonderful choice for your destination wedding in Italy. It is a magic land full of charm and traditions. It is still partly undiscovered and we think that a wedding in Apulia could be a great experience that you and your guests will never forget!
A Roman Catholic Wedding in Altamura – Apulia
Have you ever heard about Altamura area? This little and charming town is located close to Bari in Northern Apulia close to the sea. It is famous for its bread but also for its history and baroque charm.
Paolo and Paola comes from Altamura and they chose Church of Maria della Consolazione for their Roman Catholic ceremony. A wonderful white marble church recently renewed still preserving the ancient features that make it wonderful.
They are both Italian and they really wanted to be close to their roots for their wedding celebrations.
Ceremony was moving and touching. Paola was simply stunning in her wedding dress with long veil and white bouquet matching all other floral decorations in the church and at the reception venue.
At the end of the roman catholic ceremony Italian tradition wants that all guests toss newlyweds with rice at their exit from the church. So it was! It is a wonderful and iconic moment to wish happiness and prosperity to bride and groom.
An Outdoor wedding reception in a Masseria
Wedding reception was a dream! Paola and Paolo planned their wedding reception in a private Masseria. Masserias are ancient traditional Apulian farms totally renewed to be relais, hotels or wedding reception venues. You can find amazing Masserias only in Apulia. You will be amazed by them.
Paola and Paolo took a little walk along Masseria surroundings and Apulia countryside for their wedding phots. Alessandro Roncaglione was the great photographer for the event who gave us these fantastic shots here. Thanks Alessandro!
Since the entrance of the Masseria you can see that something enchanting is going to happen inside!
A marching band welcomed bride and groom and their guests for the welcome rich aperitif outdoor just in front of the building. Celebrations could begin!
Aperitif and dinner were served under hundreds of fairy lights. Atmosphere was really country chic! Tall white centrepiece, white table clothes and chairs made the event really stylish.
Dinner was delicious, menu was made of best local food and wines.
Wedding cake table was something too! A big table with lots of white flowers, fairy lights at the back of bride and groom and a big elegant white cake to cut. Amazing moment for Paola and Paolo.
Party could begin! A live band danced the night away and Paola and Paolo had the most beautiful day of their life.
Natural scents and bright colours, amazing food and wines, traditions, art, charm and elegance, all this is Apulia… if you want to live a dream wedding in Southern Italy Apulia is the right destination!
