Michael and Jenna, from England, have known each other since they were three! They decided to go to Italy to elope on the pebble beach below the cliffs of Punta Aderci in September. They stayed in Abruzzo for four days with three of their friends.

Having a destination ceremony meant they hired the wedding planners at Creamano to pull everything together for them. “Our wedding was intimate and so sweet”, they told us. “The pandemic made everything more complicated but we were determined to do what we wanted and to be ourselves. We really appreciate everything our wedding planner and photographer did for us.”

Moody, Abandoned Church Elopement in Italy

Travel lovers Valentina and Daniele chose an abandoned church near Città di Castello in Perugia, Italy, as their wedding ceremony location. Choosing to elope meant they could hike to their chosen spot with just their photographer in tow, and then have the intimate ceremony that they really wanted.

Intimate & Rustic Destination Wedding in Sicily with a Lilac Dress

Baglio di Pianetto, a winery in Sicily, was the setting for Jenn & Mike’s intimate wedding last year. Pre-pandemic, they still opted for a small wedding, inviting just 20 guests. The wedding took place on a Tuesday evening and after a short, symbolic ceremony, they hosted a simple Sicilian meal for their loved ones. They kept things as fuss-free as possible – there was no band, no big décor elements and no forced itinerary for the day.

Originally they planned to elope, but when their friends and families found out they were going to Sicily, where the groom’s grandparents were from, a few of them wanted to come along, too. The planned an adventure for everyone for the week before where they all travelled around the country in caravans visiting wineries, ruins, olive farms and beaches. The couple had some maps of the trip they all took made which were a really lovely memento of everywhere they went.

Metal Music Lovers’ Italian Wedding with a Black Wedding Dress & A First Dance to Rammstein

When you picture an Italian wedding, you might be forgiven for thinking it would be super traditional and definitely in a church, but when the couple in question met at one of Italy’s biggest metal music festivals, their wedding was definitely going to go down a little differently. Erica and Antonio chose to tie the knot at Cà del Facco, a farm meets holiday home in the Lombardy countryside where they brought their relaxed, romantic wedding (that still felt totally ‘them’) to life.

One of the most unique elements about the day was that the bride chose to wear black in the form of a black lace and layered tulle gown from Clara Couture and she paired it with a matching black veil. The groom wore a deep blue damask suit with a walking stick and a top hat!

A Laid Back House Party Wedding in Italy

Eugenia and Enrico’s theme for their Italian wedding was ‘take it easy’. That meant they wanted to make the celebration as fun, stress-free and easy for everyone as possible. They told their guests they could dress casually, however they felt most comfortable, the goal was really just to have a party where they happened to get married!

“Our dream has always been to create an amazing party rather than a traditional ceremony”, said the bride, “where everyone could be free to enjoy themselves. The day started with a simple and quick civil ceremony followed by a nice lunch of beer and chat. Then the real fun came – our friends organised a multi-religious ceremony and at the same time we sang, danced and played! Then the party took off with diving in the pool, cocktails and music and a great desire to have fun!”
