A beautiful winter elope in Apulia
Normando and Jennifer are a lovely couple coming from Los Angeles USA. When they contacted me it was the beginning of January 2020. They told me that they were planning to have a trip in Apulia for the following month in February and that during that trip they wanted to get married in a beautiful town hall in Apulia. So here we go, we planned in no time a beautiful winter elope in Apulia!
A romantic elope in Martina Franca, Apulia
An Italian elope could be planned in very short time with us!
It has been a good challenge for them to collecting the documents from our Italian consulate in LA. However they did it everything on time for the trip.
I gave them few choices among town halls or Masserie in Apulia where a legal civil marriage is allowed. At the end they chose Martina Franca town hall for their legal civil wedding.
Martina Franca village is located in beautiful Itria valley between Bari and Taranto, near famous Alberobello town. It is located right in in Trulli area. This location is the famous all over the world for its historical trational ancient round Apulian houses.
Martina Franca village and the land of Trulli
Martina Franca is real jewel. It has lovely historical centre, a memorable maze of winding alleys where whitewashed simplicity sits side by side with baroque extravagance.
Martina Franca is an incredibly photogenic town, so please come over well equipped to take lots of photos! Narrow roads that are so hard to be take in photos in other Italian villages, here they illuminated by whitewashed walls, pale stone and tiny open spaces. It is the perfect frame for a romantic elope in Apulia.
The local town hall, where legal civil legal ceremony took place is located in central piazza. The ceremony hall is elegantly decorated with beautiful and light frescoes.
Getting ready in a romantic village in Apulia
Normando and Jennifer started their preparation to the ceremony in the same nice hotel room. Once they were ready they both reached the town hall walking.
Jennifer chose a rustic, natural and colourful bouquet in the shades of purple, orange and green. Normando’s boutonniere matched bridal bouquet, as the flowers that Jennifer chose to decorate her hairdo.
A civil ceremony in Apulian Martina Franca
A romantic elope in Apulia cannot have some music as background for the wedding ceremony! As the matter of fact it was enriched moving tunes and personal vows. They made the wedding ceremony very touchy. At the end of the wedding ceremony bride and groom moved to Martina Franca roads to get some amazing wedding pictures in all these beautiful corners.
Great wedding Photos – Winter elope in Apulia
Bride and groom’s wedding pictures tour ended in a country setting near Martina Franca. Here Normando and Jennifer had the chance to take some lovely photos with the traditional Trulli in the background.
Trulli at sunset and apulian countryside with its warm colours gave to the shoots a stunning atmosphere.
We wish to thank the talented Chiara Vantaggiato photographer for these fantastic pictures of a stunning elope in Apulia.
