Usually when English and Romans meet you can expect the building of a forged Adrian’s Wall and a battle where the first ones throws scones to the second ones, and the latter ones throwing bagpipes back at them…..but no, not this time.
This time there were friendship, fun and love, especially the latter, eternally sealed between the English lassie Louise and the Roman bloke Sandro.
Civil ceremony, dinner, party, everything was held in one of the best venue for an all-inclusive wedding: the Scuderie Odescalchi (Odescalchi’s Stables).
This venue is still part of the more famous venue Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano we already told you about in other posts such as:

Olga and Jan’s wedding at Odescalchi Castle
As the name suggests Scuderie were built as stables for noble family Odescalchi, dwelling date back 18th century and the original purpose was to breed the best of purebred horses of that time, and it’s surrounded by a gargantuan lush park with alternatively blooming flowers that blossom all year round, two fountains, one of which turned to a cute nymphaeum, a brook and a little bridge, while a small path crosses all this area that can hosts up to 800 of people.
The interior are classy, with luxurious furniture, three halls are huge, some with a trussed ceiling and some with ancient fireplaces.
All the rooms can host up to 500 people and are interconnected with archways.
Louise wanted something really original for her floral decorations. Indoor dinner decorations were absolutely in line with this year fashion! We used orange and fuchsia and a posh country style set up. Indoor dining hall was something I’m really proud of. Table numbers were in Svarowsky crystal and they were decorated with nosegays made of rosemary and delicate branched roses.
A wonderful reception with gourmand dinner! Mixed guests perfectly integrated themselves.
The after dinner was a real surprise! They all had a lot of fun. It was hosted by Sisticated and Cool Ro. They came directly from UK! They played a repertoire of Motown and 70s/80s songs. When they started to play they worked their vinyl magic to mesmerised the audience with an overall performance that made everybody dance till the dawn broke.
And if you asking yourself where I was during all the party… we, the answer is no, a Wedding Planner never dances… no, nay, never!
