More Weddings in Umbria, please…
As much as I dearly love Rome and Tuscany, I wish more people would think about our lovely little Umbria for their wedding. We are very much overlooked, a hidden oasis in the wee green heart of Italy.
Yesterday I was in the beautiful area of Umbertide in northern Umbria at the stunning Borgo di Bastia Creti hidden on a hilltop in the Niccone Valley, even my GPS was telling me to turn back!
It was very unseasonal weather for the middle of May but the stormy skies produced stunning light and the countryside is so vibrantly green at this time of year, especially after all the showers we have been having. After getting ready at the villa, we travelled into Montone for a civil ceremony in the town hall, the views from here will blow you away. After ice cream in the piazza, it was back to the villa for drinks and antipasti.
The lovely Monina and Rosa from italianweddingdream.com once again worked their magic with the table settings and decor, and as always their caterers were on top form and all the food was superb.
For anyone looking for a romantic and secluded beautiful setting for their wedding should really consider Umbria, there are so many wonderful hidden gems just like Borgo di Bastia Creti. Some of my other Umbrian favourite locations include Perugia, Orvieto and Todi.
