Have you ever thought of holding a wedding reception in a wonderful historical piazza facing the sea on the Italian Riviera?

It might sound unusual, but it's possible. If you get the right permits from the local municipality and authorities, and you take care of other technical details (such as obtaining a temporary electricity connection from the local provider, or finding a proper corner to set up your catering’s mobile kitchens), you could experience a most beautiful setting for you wedding.
This is what a couple chose to do in Italy, last year, with the help of a local wedding planning agency based in Turin.

The bride and groom dreamed of an intimate ceremony, with an informal and spontaneous reception.

Giorgia and Subhash got married on 22nd September in Verezzi, a historical Saracen village offering a fascinating and suggestive frame to Their Day. The wedding was celebrated by a Catholic Indian priest in the small and enchanting chapel, dating back to XIV century, that faces the main piazza of the village.

The reception was organized just outside the steps, on the same piazza, which is embraced by old stone houses on the sides and faces the sea on the Southern coast. The spouses were simply beautiful and, notwithstanding a late September, the day was really mild and produced a gloriously clear and starry night. The choice of flowers was made keeping in mind simplicity and elegance: only gypsophila mixed with light green wild asparagus; the bride’s bouquet a vandela rose.
The catering service was well inspired by the request for an Italian finger food buffet with hints of Indian cuisine (the groom’s family is Indian), followed by a seafood pasta dish, and a choreographic closing with fondue au chocolat next to original fruit & nut ice-creams served in their skins and shells.

White and pale green were the colour theme for linens and cushions.
The cake was decorated on one side with Chantilly and on the other with chocolate, as an ironic reference to the union of the spouses.
Big white round candles and smaller ones within glass vases were used to dress the piazza with a magic and intimate atmosphere.
The DJ selected his pieces from up above the large steps facing the square, a magician played with the children in a dedicated area, and the freestyle barman enjoyed surprising the guests with his drinks and twirls.
The party ended well into the night, with people dancing barefoot under the stars.
