Good morning ladies! Today I am very excited cause I want to share with you pictures of the amazing wedding I attended the other weekend in Puglia, South of Italy (properly the ‘heel’ of Italy!). The place of the reception was spectacular, the night hot, the buffet abundant in true “South of Italy” style.. it really was a magical night. Vive les maries!
A long red carpet was leading to the reception place..
The reception took place in a spectacular villa in the middle of olive and palm trees!
Southern Italian weddings are reknown for the quality and abundance of their food.. and it indeed was something incredible, believe me! My favourite spots? The cheese corner were people were making mozzarella braids in front of you and the seafood corner.. where in true Pugliese style you ate everything (even the shrimps, mussels etc) raw! As everything just come from the sea ‘next door’, you don’t fear anything and the sensation of eating fresh raw shrimps is something which I became addicted to since!
The ‘ceremony’ of the cake took place on a little island in the middle of a swimming pool… where we all gathered and started to light up Thai lanterns which we sent to the sky.. a real magical moment!
