Elegant and Country – A wonderful Chic Wedding in Langhe
Who said that a Country wedding should be planned only in a rustic venue such as an agriturismo or a b&b over the vines hills?
A Country wedding could be also chic and very elegant still keeping the same a lovely country atmosphere that you are looking for.
This is exactly what Alika and Alessandro did.
They choose for their wedding a magic venue. We will tell you its secrets in this post.
Alika and Alessandro wedding venue is located in the heart of Langhe in the little village of Cherasco.
Cherasco is a ancient and lovely pretty village.
It a little medieval corner in Langhe countryside. It is famous because here Napoleon Bonaparte signed a famous armistice in 1796.
For art lovers Cherasco is a must-seen destination. The village in spite of its small dimensions offer to visitor a wide choice of, baroque churches, palaces and monuments like Arco del Belvedere which is the real symbol of the village.
In Cherasco you will also find one of the most important antiques and vintage market in Italy. People are coming from all over Europe to buy antiques here!
Moreover we cannot forget that Cherasco is part of the eleven villages (Grinzane Cavour, Serralunga, Monforte d’Alba, Diano d’Alba, Barolo, Novello, La Morra, Verduno, Roddi and Castiglione Falletto) that make together the Land of Barolo Wine. Barolo vines surround the village and we are sure that here you could taste one of the best Italian wine.
Aiika and Alesandro choose this little corner of paradise to tie their knot and they choose to have Cherasco monuments among their “guests”.
For their ceremony they opted for the church of St Agostino.
A wonderful big church builted in 1672 with stunning frescos on the ceiling.
The church is located side of the Arco del Belvedere and also just close by Alika and Alessandro’s wedding reception venue!
Wedding reception venue Alika and Alessandro chose is a stunning hotel housed in a former Monastery.
It was founded in around 1600 by Somaschi Monks. It was recently restored to host a stunning hotel with a gourmand restaurant.
It is just here that Alika got ready with her family.
Once ready she crossed the stunning hall and then lovely garden of the hotel and reached the church of Sant Agostino.
Catholic ceremony was moving and really romantic.
Some pictures side of the Arco del Belvedere and then back to the hotel to enjoy a wonderful aperitif sipping the best Piemonte wines.
Dinner was served in one of the main room of the hotel.
Service was impeccable and the dinner was surely gourmand. Chef prepared delicious dishes respecting famous culinary tradition of Piemonte region.
For the after dinner party some music a lovely Italian bar and chats with friends.
An elegant couple for an elegant wedding in Piemonte Countryside… who said that country only means… rustic?
