I’ve had the chance to organise several french jewish weddings in Rome in my career and all of them were a great experience! Thanks to all the couples who chose me, and also thanks to Italian Wedding Company and who came all over from France to make their dream come true.
This was also the case of Margaux and Benjamin’s luxury french jewish wedding in Rome. They decided to have their wedding ceremony and wedding reception at Villa Miani, a gorgeous villa in the centre of Rome. As the matter of fact, this is one of the best wedding venue in Rome for big groups.
A traditional Jewish ceremony in Villa Miani in Rome
They chose a private garden with an amazing view over Rome for their jewish ceremony.
Let me explain a little more about what is a traditional Jewish Ceremony.
A symbolic or orthodox jewish ceremony is in general really touchy and interesting. Before the ceremony bride and groom and two witnesses sign a ketubah. This is a marriage contract that details the obligations of the groom to the kallah (bride), among which are food, clothing, and marital relations.
Ceremony is performed under a wedding canopy called chuppah or huppah. It symbolise bride and groom’s new home being built by the couple when they become husband and wife. A ring owned by the groom is given to the bride under the canopy and after that he breaks a glass followed by the shout off all guests saying Mazel tov (congratulations).
A grand reception for a French Jewish Wedding in Rome
For their luxury french jewish wedding in Rome bride and groom chose Villa Miani for both ceremony and reception. They opted for an outdoor meal in the garden Guardaroma that means literally overlook Rome. Wow! What a stunning view!
Tables were decorated with tall and grand floral compositions in purple and white featuring also hanging candles. We placed A shiny white dancing floor right in front of the huge jewish wedding band, Lionel Mibely who came directly from Paris to entertained in a great way all guests for the whole event.
As tradition wants in all Jewish weddings, seated wedding dinner is blended with a crazy dancing.
In all Jewish weddings dancing is one of the major feature. Traditional dances include the Horah which is a Middle Eastern/Israeli style dance usually played as a second dance set.
Our bride and groom followed the tradition for their luxury french jewish wedding in Rome and they had a wonderful and joyful wedding reception with lots of fun and deances.
The wedding reception continued inside Salone Veneziano at Villa Miani for the dances up to early in the morning.
A very special thanks to all staff who worked with me to create this beauty and to David Bastianoni for these amazing shots of Margaux and Benjamin’s luxury french jewish wedding in Rome!
