For their wedding ceremony Laura and Gabriele – a wonderful Italian couple – chose one of the most beautiful Italian churches: Madonna del Sasso church.
The church has a stunning breathtaking view over all Lake Orta and on clear days you can even look up to Milan and Ligurian Apennines mountains.
For their wedding reception they chose a fantastic castle on Lake Maggiore just few kilometers from Madonna del Sasso church.
Even if Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta have very different scenarios, being so close they are able to offer to brides and grooms the possibility to plan their wedding religious ceremony and wedding reception on both lakes. This gives the bride and groom a big range of possibilities and venues to chose. It is one of our win-win factor of this part of Italian Lakes District. This area is located on Northern part of Piemonte region and it is very easy to reach from Torino and Milan and most of all from Malpensa airport – no more than 40-45 minute drive!
For their floral arrangements – bridal bouquet, church arrangements inside Church of Madonna del Sasso and their table centrepieces at the castle – they chose La Piccola Selva Floral Designer a team of professionals with more than 20 years of experience on wedding flowers arrangements on Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore.
Red and white was the theme Laura chose for her wedding. They were incorporated on flowers, wedding favours, table plan, ribbons, balloons to release in the sky during the party. Red and white is a classical choice that come back on fashion recently!
Wedding religious ceremony at Church of Madonna del Sasso
A wonderful sunny day for Laura and Gabriele’s big day!
They chose such a perfect day to get married in a church with such a great view.
Inside the church La Piccola Selva Floral Designer and her head florist Paola, arranged original baby’s breath balls and red roses on the columns covered with white silk.
Bridal bouquet matched the style with red roses on white gypsophila (baby’s breath).
Laura arrived at Madonna del Sasso church on a wonderful white convertible Volkswagen Beetle. Gabriele was waiting for her at the entrance of the church – as local tradition wants – to give her bridal bouquet. Such a touching moment!
After the ceremony some fantastic wedding photos overlooking spectacular view over Lake Orta… it was enhanced by the clear sunny summer day!
