Wedding in Italy is a dream that unites brides from different countries of the world. One can hardly find another state on the map with such a vast variety of destination wedding locations for elopements, official marriages and symbolic ceremonies just for two. There are ancient castles like Castelo di Pavone, unique lakes as Garda and Como and fishermen villages as Riomaggiore. But this is just a drop in a big see of Italian wedding planning.
Among these fascinating destination wedding locations there is one city which is considered to be the symbol of the country. This is Rome. And today I will tell you a beautiful story about Diana and Alexander who planed an elopement in Rome Castello Della Castelluccia and hired me as an Italian wedding photographer.
Symbolic ceremony in Castello Della Castelluccia
Castelluccia is an ancient castle transformed into luxury hotel. It is located 20 kilometres away from the capital. The territory of the castle is decorated with bushes and flowers, therefore even in summer hit the air is fresh and cool. The outdoor wedding ceremonies in Castello Della Castelluccia take place on the orange terrace. And I should say, that this is just an amazing variant of getting married in Italy.

This elopement of Diana and Alexander was a gift they received from relatives at the official wedding. And since their honeymoon stated with Rome they decided to take the gown and the suit to have gorgeous photos from Rome and to plan a little symbolic ceremony in the castle. That was in August, therefore we started at half past 4 in the afternoon, when the heat decreased and the sun was getting down.
After a very romantic and tender elopement ceremony we had the whole castle in our disposal to make first photos for the newlyweds.
