We’re happy to give you Sophie and Jay, a lovely English couple that chose a timeless Abbey in the heart of Italy to gather friends and families, to celebrate their love and to mix Indian, British and Italian Heritage.
The San Pietro in Valle Monastery welcomed within its millenary walls the spouses and their families, who enjoyed all the available spaces: from the getting ready in the splendid rooms, to the religious ceremony, officiated by the uncle of the bride, in the ancient church, until the party inside the cloister in a magical atmosphere.
It was fun to see how the solemnity of the location gradually gave way to the joy and conviviality of this wedding!
Every detail and every moment thrilled us: The laughter of the girls playing hide and seek, the toasts and jokes of friends and relatives during the speeches, the crazy dance moves when the party started.
A story that we think is nice to share with you and that we feel honored to have been able to tell!
How about a wedding in Umbria?
The venue of the wedding, San Pietro in Valle Abbey, lean on a slope overlooking a beautiful valley in the Italian region of Umbria, one of the less spoiled territory of our country.
This was our first wedding in San Pietro in Valle, but we look forward to visit again this hidden gem of Italian history, but we love the whole region for all its perks, which we would love to share with you.
Also know as the heart of Italy, for its very central position, Umbria borders Tuscany and is know for his authentic nature, genuine food and wines. Moreover, Umbria has a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere and counts several stunning locations for destination weddings.
Umbria is also know as “the land of saints”, “la terra dei santi”, as the famous Saint Francis, Benedict and Chiara were born there. Towns, cities and even the countryside are scattered with churches, chapels and abbeys, providing a unique and spiritual environment (by the way, if you’re into ancient and small chapels, please take a look to this wedding).
With its ancient and well preserved cities like Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto and many more, Umbria could be a great idea for your destination wedding in Italy and, as wedding photographers, we really love to work there!
