Back in Langhe – A Romantic Country Wedding over the vines
After an insight in Puglia region we get back to Piemonte for wonderful rustic wedding we planned last summer.
We are talking about Tamra and Simon’s wedding in Langhe over wonderful Piemonte vines.
Tamra and Simon chose this special corner of Italy for their wedding because they are big wine lovers.
Tamra herself is a wine maker in New Zealand and with her fiancé Simon, they really wanted to have a very special country setting for their special day.
We are in the heart of Langhe in Barbaresco where Nebbiolo and Barbaresco wines are produced.
The time is beginning of August on a sunny and warm day over the vines.
Tamra chose to get ready a the venue where the reception was planned with her two lovely bridesmaids, in an amazing room overlooking Langhe hills.
She chose a simple yet wonderful wedding dress that enhanced her natural beauty.
Long hair with a vintage detail in it made her look really country but still very sophisticated.
She also choose a very simple bridal bouquet with few white roses with long stem. Simplicity could be a key factor when natural setting is so gorgeous!
Bouquet perfectly matches the other decorations she choose for ceremony and reception.
We get back to lovely village of Barbaresco. We’ve been here many times but every time we fall in love again and again with this wonderful country village in Langhe. Do you remember about Katie and Matt, Alika and Alessandro, Alan and Kelly and Aina and Emil’s special days?
It is just here where wonderful Barbaresco wine is produced and as wine lovers Tamra and Simon decided to get married inside the Regional Winehouse with many precious wine bottles all around them.
A little touch of beauty with some candles and spheres hung above bride and groom and big basket of white baby’s breath, just as lovely flowers clouds.
In the cobbled main road of Barbaresco, right after the ceremony there was a fresh aperitif waiting for bride and groom and their guests. Fresh Prosecco, Focaccias and hand made breadsticks and most of all, some time for Tamra and Simon to have their wedding photos.
Have a look to these wonderful shots above the hills a real wine themed country wedding!
They took a lovely walk around the village, on country belvederes and close to Gaja Wines entrance, a must for such as wine lovers!
A very special thanks to M & J Photography for the amazing photos they took and share with us.
Tamra and Simon’s reception was planned to a wonderful Michelin Starred restaurant above Langhe hills, just few minutes drive from Barbaresco.
Aperitif and dinner were both served outdoor on a wonderful terrace above the wines.
Long white tables for all guests to created a relaxed and fun country atmosphere that everybody loved.
On the tables some simple rustic and elegant decorations. Tins and baskets with white roses, baby’s breath , camomilles and Mediterranean herbs.
Bride and groom had a little table just for the two of them. A romantic table for two.
A hot summer sun and a magic sunset was a special gift that arrived just in time for the wedding speeches.
Dinner was simply amazing! Tasting special courses prepared by a Michelin starred chef could be a great experience!
We cannot forget wines! Tamra and Simon wanted to serve a different wine each course without forgetting about their wedding signature wine: Kelly-Washington Sauvignon Blanc. As wine maker Tamra created this special wine just for the occasion.
It was also given as special wedding gift to all the guests. What a great idea!
And what about Tamra and Simon’s wedding cake?
A big full cake made of Piemonte cheeses! A delicious and original idea that all guests loved!
A romantic wedding in Langhe planned with care and attention to details. A lovely couple for a wonderful country wedding in Langhe – Piemonte!
A very Special Thanks to M & J Photography for their lovely pictures.
