The distance from my town to Puglia region is 700 km. But it was worth it. No doubt, I’d repeat this marvellous experience once again!
Anna and Dmitriy are friends of Olga and Andrey, whose wedding I organised in Tuscany a couple of years ago Real wedding in Tuscany of Olga and Andrey.
The first step was to find the right place for the wedding reception. But at the same time the couple wanted to stay 3 nights with their guests in the same location. We could opt for any place in Italy ( Amalfi coast, Garda Lake, Marche region, Maremma in Tuscany), but our hearts decided in favour of Puglia region. Not by coincidence … For this July wedding it was the perfect choice: picturesque landscapes, fabulous south cuisine and inviting seaside. Trullo, that are the distinctive note of Puglia region, highlighted the charming atmosphere of this Russian wedding in Italy!
We found very cosy masseria for wedding (traditional farmhouse in Puglia) not far from Alberobello. They have 7 rooms, so we managed to accomodate all the guests and have the exclusive use of the masseria for all stay!
For the symbolic ceremony we chose romantic secular olive tree nearby old capella situated on the territory of masseria.
A couple of words about wedding style. Anna had a tender creamy wedding dress with stunning “tail” – red ribbon in japanese style. Wedding style was in harmony with the bride’s image as we introduced some red elements in wedding decor … no exception for the groom!
After the ceremony photoshooting for the couple in Alberobello while the guests were on sightseeing. People in the south Italy are very welcoming and the couple was invited by one of the local families to come in …
On their return to masseria the party was about to start with tastiest apulia cuisine, caricaturist and show cooking: mozzarella preparation live!
What a magic heartwarming dinner!
And here it’s … wedding cake! But not alone … cake table, flying lanterns, dancing, cocktail bar … and … night swimming!!!
Russian Ph. Alexander Pavluchenko managed to capture all smiles and lovely moments! I’m very grateful to him for the work done! It was a long time I wanted to start our collaboration. You see, not only the dreams of bride and groom can come true, but also the dreams of wedding planners!
