How Did You Meet?

“The first and only … I have known my husband since I was a child, and he was my first boyfriend. After going through the different paths of adolescence including some time apart, we met again after 5 years and the rest is history.”

The Proposal

“While visiting the city of Petra they told us about the legend of an Egyptian pharaoh who, engaged in war, had decided to hide his treasure in the monument. In that magical place, we promised each other eternal love and decided that we would exchange our vows, our treasure, in a place surrounded by rock, and Matera was perfect for us.”

Planning the Wedding

“The theme of our marriage was a Love Escape, the desire not to fall into the obvious, banality of a standardized marriage, where usually the aim is to show and demonstrate. We decided to LIVE the moment alone, listening to our emotions resonating on the silent rock walls.”

The Location

“Our wedding reflected our nature as a couple; strong characters with a note of hidden romanticism, a part of us that we intensely guard. This is why the choice of Sassi di Matera as the place for the ceremony; the hard rind of the rock that enclosed such an intimate and sweet moment represents our love, and the exchange of our promises that only the Earth witnessed. The hotel where we stayed was located in a cave; our love nest.”

The Dress

“With my wedding planner, we recovered an 80s wedding dress from my mum and customised it to suit my style. It was a real jewel that has been preserved for decades, waiting to share with me the same emotions as those who wore it many years before me. The choice of vintage comes from authenticity because everything has already lived, and it transmits a great strength because you are aware that everything around you has a story.”

The Details

“For the flowers, we chose different varieties of stabilized flowers, dried flowers and resistant flowers which don’t die but are resilient over time, all decorated with candles. For the wedding cake, we chose a neutral colour that reflected the stone and, branches of the pampas used to decorate.”

The Best Part of the Day

“The best part of the day was waking up in the cave. When I opened my eyes and realized that we would be united like never before: me and my partner, love and rock.”

Words of Wisdom

“For our wedding, I wouldn’t have chosen any other wedding. I recommend that all brides live an experience like ours and afterwards celebrate the wedding with family and friends; but only after having experienced the intensity of the emotions that can be experienced in the absence of external voices.”
