Beautiful weddings in reach of Rome. Part One.

Weddings in Nettuno, featuring Il Castello Borghese.
In the last year or so weddings in the Lazio countryside have become one of my most popular wedding venues. Any why not, within reach of Rome you can enjoy the beautiful Lazio countryside and coastline but still take advantage of being able to visit Rome easily. Great for the bride and groom and also their guests.
 In the first part of this blog I am featuring Nettuno, south of Rome and on the coast it’s a great choice of location. For the couple and their guests there are a selection of hotels along the seafront. With a beautiful sandy beach your guests could even fit it a swim or a stroll before they have to get ready for your wedding!
 Civil wedding ceremonies can be held at the stunning Castello Boughese.
Where the bride and groom can exchange their vows, enjoy their wedding breakfast and then dance the night away, whilst overlooking the Mediterranean.
The ceremony can be held in the gardens of the Castello, the luscious green lawns make for a perfect setting for an outside wedding.
And then when you turn in the opposite direction you have an incredible sea view.
For the bride and groom it’s an unforgettable place to exchange their vows.
As the ceremony finishes and the couple make their exit it’s time for the food, wine and fun to flow.
Whilst the ceremony is held in the gardens the canapes are served on the terrace of the Castello.
And it’s a first chance for family and friends to celebrate with the newly weds.
For the bride it’s a chance to beam and savor the moment!
The exquiste food is served once the bride and groom have viewed and tasted the feast that has been laid out in their honour.
And tried by dad of course too!
While the guests were tucking in I took the opportunity to photograph the couple in the Castello and around the grounds.
Of course there is then the group photographs to fit in before we sit down for the wedding breakfast.
Now inside the venue the tables are set for the arrival of the couple and their guests.
The tables were themed on the iconic sights of Rome.
The arrival of the newly weds was met to great applause.
And then it was time for the speeches.
And a song!
The serving of the wedding breakfast to great fanfare was a real treat for everybody.
Looking back afterwards at the wedding photographs a very clear theme was a smiling bride!
As evening fell it was a chance for a few drinks together before the cutting of the wedding cake.
The wedding cake was cut and served back outside as the heat of the day had subsided.
As it turned dark the guests took the opportunity to enjoy the selection of desserts, and a cocktail or two!
Now that we were well into the evening it was time for the first dance back on the terrace of the Castello.
It was a very special day at a special location and clearly a day that was both fun and emotional for everyone.
