You will see there some photos for sweet Deepa and Andrew’s wedding. They got married on September 1st in Orta San Giulio.
A lovely civil ceremony at Villa Bossi with an aperitif to follow in the village and then a fun reception at Ustaria Ca dal Rat Restaurant.
It was an intimate but sweet day, with a lot of different elements that made the difference: Italian traditions, English traditions and even some Indian traditions as per Deepa heritage!
We will surely come back to tell you about the full story.
PLANNING A DAY BEFORE EVENT
Very often we plan day before or rehearsal or day after events for the destination weddings we organise.
We usually plan lovely trips on the lake, boat tours, casual dinners, pizza parties, beach parties, golf trips for men or spa days for ladies, aperitifs or buffet on St. Julius Islands and trips to close by Lake Maggiore.
We had a very original idea for Deepa and Andrew!
At the end of August on Lake Orta there is an famous festival called Festa di San Vito.
It takes place in Omegna the biggest town on Lake Orta located on Northern side of the Lake.
Festival is planned to celebrate St Vito one of the protectors of the town and it is celebrated the last sunday of August. To make the festival grand Omegna every year organise a very big firework display that challenges for the World Fireworks Championship.
What a great idea for a day before event!
On August 31, after a lovely meal in Orta village, Deepa and Andrew with their guests got on a lovely motorboat and they reached Omegna with a lovely boat trip of about 20 minutes.
Once there motorboat stopped and the fireworks show started!
An impressive show that everybody loved.
Some chats, some drinks on board and a great fun. This was a great way to plan a day before event to get together and offering their guests a wonderful show!
Have a look to these wonderful shots!
So if you really want to have a wonderful and special day before or day after event for your destination wedding on Lake Orta and you are planning to get married at the end of August or beginning of September, just do as Deepa and Andrew did!
We will be happy to plan for you a lovely night boat trip, with meal or aperitif on board if you want.
Boat captains of Lake Orta will be at your disposal!
It will be a wonderful experience that you and your guests will remember forever!
