Cecilia and Alessio: A charming Italian wedding in Umbria

Monday, September 14th, 2015

Hi ladies!
Hello wormy September! What a nice month for an Italian wedding…
Today I will share with you a super romantic one…I send a big thank you to Elisa and Marco of Studio26 who send us these beautiful pictures.

Wedding in Umbria

Cecilia and Alessio are a really sweet Italian couple who got married in Umbria, a beautiful region in the centre of Italy. Their wedding was a warm and cozy event between laughs, jokes and emotions…
The love between the two was palpable as you can see from how they look so romantically to each other.
They changed their vows in a stunning little church with suggestive frescos on the walls and an antique wooden sealing. The party continued in the Fattoria Caldese where all the guests, as part of a one big family, had lots of excitement dancing and laughing with the happy couple!
I love the bride Cecilia’s strapless, simple and elegant dress. The floral crown, which was made by the bridesmaids, is a really beautiful detail that complete a really chic and delicate style. Enjoy their story…

Colin Firth and his Italian Wedding in Umbria

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Hello all,

I’ve to confess I’m not that fun of gossip, but I do love cinema.
So I couldn’t wait to know who won the Oscars the other day and flickring through the pictures of the winners in search for at least one familiar Italian name, I was pleasantly surprise to discover that Colin Firth‘s wife Livia Giuggioli is Italian.

Not only that,  they also got married in Italy where they have a house.
It’s not in Tuscany thanks god! Don’t get me wrong, I love Tuscany, but I think there are some other wonderful gems which most of the people don’t know and which could be a very romantic and unusual location for an Italian style wedding.

They got married in Città di Pieve, a nice little medieval town in Umbria, not far from the Trasimeno lake. I leave you with these lovely pics by Alessandro Longobardi and Alessandro Carlini (thank you both!) which I hope will tickle your curiosity…who knows…

Città di Pieve is also the home of the Italian narrowest street, vicolo Baciadonna.
The literal translation is “kiss woman” street and it probably goes back to some local legend saying that road is so narrow that in the past men used to come here to approach women! Strange Italians!

Church Umbria Citta della Pieve Colin Firth Wedding

Every August the town hosts a well know medieval events called Palio dei Terzieri – it recalls the Palio di Siena but it’s a bit different because instead of a horse race there is a competition among archers of different neibourghoods. A great masquerade with medieval costumes (there are some adorable medieval female dresses made with velvet fabrics!)
