MakeloveinItaly is the Ultimate Wedding Guide for getting married in Italy and inform married couples-to-be on how to plan the Perfect Wedding in Italy.
We are Giulia and Laurent. Giulia is Italian and Laurent is Dutch.
We live in the Netherlands. We got married in May 2009. Needless to say, we picked Rome, my home city, as our destination wedding.
After tying the knot in a fairy-tale Church (Sant’Alessio all’ Aventino) set on one of the seven panoramic hills of Rome (Aventino hill, watch our short wedding video to get a glimpse of the church and venue atmospheric roman setting), we held our wedding reception in Trevignano-Romano.
Trevignano is a lovely lake town at 20 km from Rome. This stunning hill-top venue has breath-taking views over Bracciano Lake that turned us all on our heads!
Don’t get me wrong, the whole process didn’t go so smoothly as you might guess. While not doubting a sec that our destination wedding would be Italy, we struggled at times to sort all things out from abroad.
The thing is that when you try to arrange a 170-guest wedding from abroad, stress goes off the chart.
