We are back to tell you about an Italian couple this time, Cristina and Luigi. They are both from Rome and after many researches they chose a wonderful Roman Country Villa for their special summer wedding.

Living in Rome could be a luck, the city is so amazing and there are many venues to choose in the city… but if you are looking for something different Roman Countryside could be a wonderful and original destination.

So, Cristina and Luigi and their guests all moved to Castel Gandolfo village for their special day
Castel Gandolfo village is located about 25 km from Rome close to Lake Albano. It is a well known village as it is the village where popes usually go on vacation. The area is also famous the Regional Park of Castelli Romani (Roman Castles) with a stunning nature and wonderful villas.
A perfect set for a country wedding!

Venue Cristina and Luigi chose for their wedding is one of those.
The villa is fully set in Roman countryside and it could be just perfect if you are looking for a country shabby chic style event.
Pastel colours, wrought iron details, hundreds of candles and lanterns and country meadows flowers.
This is the atmosphere you can breath here.

The villa has its own restaurant inside and it is able to cater intimate or bigger groups serving wonderful Italian traditional food and local wines.

Cristina is an architect and she was very decided and original with the choice of her wedding decorations. Very different ideas and new alternative elements that made this wedding very special for us too. Once she saw the villa she set her idea in mind.
She wanted all natural arrangements made of plants and organic elements such as wood and raw cotton.
The theme of the wedding? Lavender! it could not be different for such a country style event!

For her bouquet Cristina chose a shabby chic style one in the shades of lilac, tied up with a thin rope. Very country! We loved it!

All events of the wedding were planned at the villa. Very comfortable for all… no transfers were needed.

Legal protestant ceremony was conducted by a pastor in the grounds of the villa.
This is a service we can offer, thanks to our kind protestant pastor’s help. He will be pleased to celebrate your legal ceremony in the grounds of the venue you will choose.

Right after the ceremony all group moved to the swimming pool area. Yes! the villa has also a lovely swimming pool that could make your day even more relaxed!
Here lovely canapés and Italian Prosecco were served. A wonderful and laid down atmosphere that all enjoyed.
To find their seat for the meal Cristina wanted a shabby style table plan.
All names cards were hanged on a tree. Little hanging flowers pots and lanterns added an extra country touch and cushions on the grass did the rest.
Isn’t it a nice setting?

For their reception Cristina and Luigi chose the inner hall of the villa.
You can admire Cristina country taste here too. Lots of fairy lights on the beans of the room roof and wonderful country centrepieces. She opted for floating seasonal country flowers in vases.
Some more candles and names of the tables in wood to complete the frame.
We told you! She was very detailed in her choices.
