A Castle Wedding overlooking the sea not far from Rome
Our blog’s aim is discovering Italian seaside destinations and today we are on Roman Riviera.
Who said that Lazio region is all about Rome?
Rome is an amazing destination for sure but if you are looking for something more summer style and you love the seaside Roman Riviera could be the right choices!
We are in Santa Marinella a lovely village on the seaside located few kilometers from Rome.
A prefect location for couples who love the sea but would also like to explore a wonderful city of art!
This is what Anne and Henning did.
Anne and Henning come from Norway and as many Norwegians they own a holiday home close on Roman Riviera.
This is the reason why they chose wonderful Santa Marinella Castle for their special day.
As the matter of fact they planned a lovely welcome cocktail on their home’s terrace overlooking the sea. A great beginning for sure!
All the event took place at the Castle.
Anne got reach in one of the rooms of Santa Marinella Castle sipping local Prosecco and having their hair and make up done.
The ceremony was planned in the courtyard of Castello.
Everybody was waiting for the bride with the sound of a wonderful piano in the background.
The pianist was Anne and Henning’s friend who came here for the occasion with a fantastic singer!
We rented for him a wonderful black long piano for him.
The atmosphere was simply magic.
For her floral decorations Anne wanted something loose with country flowers just like they were just picked up from the meadows. All was in the shades of light blue like the sea and the sky in Santa Marinella. Very inspiring!
Right after the ceremony all the group moved on the terrace of the castle overlooking the sea.
The aperitif was rich and tasteful but the view was simply breathtaking: a wonderful sunset on the sea. In this part of Italy the sun dives in the waters creating a wonderful romantic set for your wedding photos.
Anne and Henning could not miss the occasion!
Inside the elegant rooms of the castle everything was ready to host a gourmand meal for the wedding reception.
A wonderful catering service is working at the castle and its cuisine is surely one of the best in the area.
The castle has also a lower terrace where you can plan the cut of your wedding cake and party to follow! This is exactly what Anne and Henning did!
For their wedding cake they choose an Italian cake made of chocolates profiteroles, delicious!
But before the party a very special moment for all.
All the group moved back to the courtyard to listen to a wonderful concert of classical music played by Anne and Henning’s friend.
it was really unique the atmosphere was magic, the castle enhanced the sound of the piano and soft light of the candles made the context simply precious.
It was a unique experience for me too that I will always remember!
After the concert it is time to party!! Back again to the terrace for a full set of coloured cocktails and drinks, dances and a delicious sweet buffet until very late at night….or early in the morning….you decide!
Great moments, great scenarios and great music a perfect match for a romantic wedding on Roman Riviera!
A very special thanks to Alessandro Zingone for his wonderful pictures!
