Italian style wedding in Langhe

Matrimonio all’Italiana (An Italian style Wedding) is the title of a famous movie directed by Vittorio De Sica with Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni.
This is Monica and Simone’s inspiration for their wedding in Langhe.
Just think that they created a little wall paper for the wedding identical to the one of the movie but their faces instead of Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni’s ones.


We can speak about this wedding thanks to wonderful images of Simone Mottura – Blanco Y Negro photography studio in Torino.


Monica and Simone choose breathtaking scenario of Langhe region for their wedding. The ceremony was held on Santuario della Madonna del Buon Consiglio in Castiglione Tinella.


Castiglione Tinella is a pretty little village close to Cuneo. It just here where last hills of Langhe region meet Monferrato region. 90% of the territory is covered by vines and not by chance Castiglione Tinella is considered the town among all Italian towns with more vines above all.
Best wines here are Moscato, Langhe Chardonnay and Riesling white wine.


Simone and Monica took a piece of Britain having a Black Cab taking them from Ceremony to reception. Just a funny idea. And friends of the bride and groom made it funnier filling it with tons of balloons.


For their reception Simone and Monica choose Villa Althea an amazing villa in the heart of Langhe region with Dolcetto and Moscato wines vines all around it.


The villa is located in little town of Mango close to Cuneo and it is a country noble mansion built back in 1800 but refurbished and restored with care and attention.

Villa has also 6 rooms with antique furniture, a wellness area and a fantastic U shaped pool surrounded by bright windows on Langhe vines.


One of the most colorful details of the villa are its balconies enriched with many and beautiful Surfinia plants.
Wide Villa Althea garden is the perfect place for aperitif and open air receptions.


For example Simona and Monica arranged a wonderful acrobats show to entertain their guests. The acrobats were on a high structure and the show was really amazing!


Right after the dinner a new show in the garden and bouquet throwing to follow!


If you are looking for a fantastic place right into the nature, vines for your Italian Country Wedding then Simone and Monica Italian style wedding could be a good inspiration!
