Real wedding in Orvieto - Aoife and David

Orvieto with its ancient histories and brilliant facades, the perfect place to celebrate a romantic wedding was ready to embrace another couple in the union of their love together in matrimony. As the minutes ticked by the young Bride-to-be was happily having the finishing touches done to her by the hairdresser, make-up artist, mother and bridesmaids in the beautifully frescoed 15th Century hotel suite room whilst the eager Groom-to-be, the rest of the family and friends were awaiting her arrival one of the oldest churches in this beautiful town, which has a magnificent view overlooking the Umbrian green valleys and hilltops.

Aiofe was ready and emotional as she walked down the hotel's staircase and onto the narrow cobbled roads of Orvieto, where she was welcomed with cheers and congratulations with admiration from the curious passer-bys.

The walk to the Church is a pleasant walk through the narrow and winding roads of the oldest part of the town, with antique houses which display beautiful romantic balconies and flowers of every colour you can imagine, relaxing you and inspiring you with emotions. Below some photos of Marco Miglianti.

After walking for about 200mt, the Bride-to-be arrived at the entrance of the Church, when the violinist starting playing the music the couple had chosen for the "entrance-of-the Bride", she emotionally walked down the long quaint aisle of the beautifully frescoed church and greeted all her guests with a smile. David, who was awaiting her at the altar gave her a loving hug when she reached him.

The Ceremony was beautiful, with the priest talking and emphasizing the importance of love a couple share and cherish together. At the end of the ceremony everyone gathered around within the beautiful Fortress walls and congratulated the newly-weds, the walls that overlook the beautiful view was perfect for group photo shots and also the garden nearby the church was a favourite for the photographer to take some good shots of the whole group.

Then it was time to leave the couple to cherish their moment together alone and to have some photos taken in all the beautiful spots in Orvieto on their own.


The rest of the family and guests all made their way to the beautiful restaurant, just round the corner from the church, where the refreshments, cocktails, aperitifs and hor d'oeuvres were awaiting them on a Buffet table at the entrance of the Restaurant.

Once the Bride and Groom arrived and were welcomed with a heartwarming applause they all enjoyed each other's company and each guest found their place at the sit-down dinner on the terrace of the restaurant with the help of a beautiful Tableau, displayed at the entrance of the terrace. Once everyone was seated, the bride and groom made their exit from the restaurant with music and applauses as they came down the stairs to join their wonderful sit down reception.

The reception and the after-party was magnificent and of course the weather also played a very important part. Everyone had a wonderful time dancing in the up-stairs restaurant area to a lively band and chit-chatting outside on the terrace until early hours of the morn. This, and many other weddings celebrated here, in the beautiful Orvieto City has remained an unforgettable memory to all those who have decided to tie their love-knot far from home like Aioffe and David.
