Getting ready for a magic wedding on Lake Trasimeno

Melanie, our bride, bridesmaid and her mother were all involved in getting ready for the moment!
All looked like really relaxed, but electricity was almost tangible. The atmosphere was like a beauty salon not only for the flower-scented air, but also because the room was the widest and most beautiful of the villa its amazing frescos on the ceiling. Melanie sat in front of the mirror while her friends were taking care of her make-up, hair and wedding dress. I cannot say who was more excited… if the bride silently seated or all the girls speaking loudly close to her!
Jack, our groom seemed instead to be more at ease or this is what he wanted to look like… having fun with is friends and playing with the photographer, too.

IT’S TIME FOR THE WEDDING CEREMONY!

The moment of the celebration was just around the corner and all the spouses’ family and friends arrived the church of Madonnino in the small city of Sbarra (near Panicale, close to lovely city of Perugia). There were flowers everywhere in purple shades respecting the color scheme Melanie wanted for the wedding.
A delicious scent of lavender filled the room.

Bridesmaids were waiting at the altar on the right, in their wonderful purple bridesmaid dresses, carrying a white bouquet. Groomsmen were on the left, waiting in their elegant dark suits. Jack was ready in front of the altar wearing an elegant grey suit with with a purple tie and a perfumed flower as buttonhole.
When the bride made her appearance at the other end of the aisle, a bright morning light illuminated her white bridal gown and delicate purple garnishments she had on it. She was just stunning!
The ceremony was really touching and fortunately, bridal make-up resisted all the bride’s tears of emotion! Eventually, a long kiss celebrated their union!

Outside the church, at the exit of bride and groom, a deluge of confetti and streamers covered the couple. The party began with a small toast offered by a local bartender as a sign of friendship with Melanie’s family. All photos rose to the occasion!

A OLIVE-THEMED RECEPTION ON LAKE TRASIMENO

The natural frame of Lake Trasimeno helped to make each memory really vivid.
After the ceremony, all guests got back to the villa where everything was ready for the wedding reception to begin. While a guitarist and a violinist welcomed the guests, bride and groom took advantage of the charming hamlet to take some wedding photos.

Table decorations were simple recalling the leafy Tuscan countryside. Moreover Melanie expressly wanted every table to be named by Italian destinations Melanie she cared for.
Color scheme Melanie wanted for the dinner was white and emerald green as the small olive branches held within each napkin. Isn’t it a great idea?
Lanterns with white candles inside spread all over the gardens of the villa created the right atmosphere during the party and afterwards, while the guests were enjoying a warm night breeze.

A great way to close an emotional but relaxed and smooth day on Lake Trasimeno!

I

was with a couple coming from Ireland, sipping and enjoying a glass of local White wine in a cool Bar in the Lakeside; we spent together all the day looking for ideal wedding venue for them. And after 8 hours of visits and a lot of talking we were there, in silence, staring at the sunset… it was May and the climate was just perfect. In front of us just Tuscan & Umbrian Hills and the splendid quite Lake with its islands.

cheap-weddings-lake-Trasimeno-Umbria

At this point the bride to be asked me:

Why a lot of people from UK actually don’t know even the existence of Trasimeno Lake? It is just awesome place!! I mean… here we found our wedding location as imagined… in a first moment we were thinking to a Tuscan wedding destination, but the prices were really high for us, so after meet you we realized that this cool corner of Italy, at just 5 minutes from Tuscany, is able to have the same landscape, atmosphere, quality and facilities… moreover we have the lake!!!

We have not yet decide if have Civil or Catholic ceremony or simply a blessing… but here we have hundreds of amazing possibilities… from the town hall of Castiglione del Lago with his olive grove in the castle and amazing sight, to the church in the island or the main church in Town, or the romantic olive groves and vineyard, perfect for a blessing outside… all here seems really easy and we feel completely satisfied….
I mean, the airports are really close (ndr: Rome 1:40 , Pisa 1:45, Florence 1:00), accommodations for our guests are really nice and not expensive and the wedding venue proposed have really the wow factor… amazing views, incredible local menu proposals, best wines and any time limit for music…

I really don’t understand why Trasimeno lake is not considered and famous as other parts of Italy!!!!

I was really happy to hear that words obviously and replied her… “You are completely right… I really don’t know!!”
