A White Country Chic wedding on top of Langhe hills – Piemonte Countryside
Langhe area in Piemonte Countryside has been recently appointed among UNESCO World Heritage. A wonderful land of vineyards hills where some of the best Italian wines are produced: Barbaresco, Barolo, Nebbiolo. For wine lovers this is just heaven. A well hidden gem of Italian Countryside, surely less known than Tuscany but emotionally enchanting. The ideal destination for a wedding in Italian Countryside.
On top of these hills there is a special venue with a stunning view over these vineyards hills, hazelnuts fields and Alps on the back drops. The venue is located on top of one highest hills and it has a precious history. It used to be an ancient Cascina – farm house – and during WWII it was a good refuge for local resistance that helped to free the country from nazi-fascist forces.
A Wedding Ceremony Overlooking Vineyards on Langhe hills
Rafi and Gaz chose this pretty country chic wedding venue for both their wedding ceremony and wedding reception.
After getting ready in the rooms of the venue itself, Rafi and Gaz were ready to walk down the aisle together to tie the knot in the lovely courtyard of the Cascina overlooking vineyards hills. Both wearing white they were just fresh and young! Very chic.
Rafi wore a simple but very chic wedding dress that perfectly matched the style she wanted for her floral decor. A wonderful round shaped arch was waiting for them at the end of the aisle and the courtyard. Ceremony was planned just there. Wedding arch was round shaped and fully covered with greenery and olive branches. The frame was perfect. A lovely country Chic wedding on top of Langhe hills!
After a lovely aperitif to follow in the garden and courtyard of the pretty Cascina still enjoying a stunning view, Rafi and Gaz were ready to take some photos. Independent Pictures Team was there with us and captured amazing shots of the day.
A Garden Reception on Langhe hills
Rafi wanted a garden style reception with long tables, wooden chairs and long garlands.
Fairy light and lots of candles did the rest to create a unique atmosphere. Some white flowers along the garlands of the tables embellished the tables too. Some country chic details enriched the atmosphere such as a fun program written on a wooden pallet, the table plan made with wines bottles and fun temporary personalized tattoos of the bride and groom to give to the guests.
Wedding meal food was amazing, it was totally regional with very special touches from Piemonte cuisine. Let’s not forget about wines… all Piemonte wines of course!
A fun party in Piemonte Countryside
The wedding cake party and dance party to follow was held inside the wonderful room of the ancient cascina. This area used to be a hayloft. it is not perfectly restored to be a restaurant area or dances area. A great live band first and a fun dj after entertained the party up to late at night. And being a Jewish style wedding bride and groom also had the chance to dance their Hora which was a great fun for everybody!
A wedding in Langhe in Piemonte Countryside could be this and much more!
A great fun event and most of all a great experience for you and your guests. You will all discover a different part of our Country. A country area that is surely less famous than Tuscany or Umbria. Piemonte countryside has a lot to offer for a unique wedding destination in Italy. It is close to Milan international airport and also very easy to reach from Torino too. Torino baroque city is not far from a great sigh-seen experience and the area is also very close to Italian Riviera and amazing Cinque Terre so spend a great honeymoon afterwards.
