An Italian-English Wedding in Langhe
They both come from England. Catherine and her family are English and Giuseppe and his family come from England too but they have an Italian heritage.
Most of the guests came from South of Italy or came from England but were almost all Italian speakers!
The reason because they opted for Italian Langhe region was because Catherine’s family own a wonderful property in the area and because Giuseppe’s family really wanted to have an Italian wedding for them…so we have the perfect solution!
The wedding took place all in one place!
Catherine’s home is located just side of the church of little village of Sale San Giovanni and just in front of it there is a wonderful castle where we planned the reception.
The castle was built in 1200 and owned by Savoy family and then in 1800 taken by Marquises of Incisa di Camerana.
It is located on a hill with wonderful view over the valley on 616 mt above the sea level.
When Catherine was ready with just few steps she reached the lovely church built in 1700 with many frescoes and lit up by dozens of candles.
She opted for a pink theme color for her flowers in all the shades of this romantic color that matched bridesmaids dresses and Giuseppe’s tie too.
After the ceremony and few images overlooking the valley Catherine and Giuseppe enjoyed a lovely aperitif in the garden of the castle.
Another panoramic spot for their guests to enjoy!
With this atmosphere they surely had a country style wedding.
Music played by great musicians accompanied the ceremony and the long aperitif.
And after that all guests reached the main room of the castle at the first floor with stunning frescos on the ceiling for a very special dinner!
Catherine and Giuseppe’s dinner was prepared by one of the most famous Michelin star Piemonte chef: Davide Palluda.
They surely have a delicious dinner!
After the dinner they had a great party!!
Giuseppe wanted a special DJ, a friend of him who played a lot of dancing music and most of all many Italian traditional songs like tarantella and pizzica to make the night a real fun!
We are sure that Catherine and GIuseppe will remember this night for a long time… like us!
Congratulations to this wonderful young couple from all of us!
