Ph. Paola Colleoni for The Wedding Care

Destination wedding in a stunning church in Rome

10 November 2019

Unbelievable as it sounds, within Roma’s city walls you can find more than 900 beautiful churches.

Last June, Patrizia and Benedikt got married in one of them, Sant’Agnese in Agone, situated in the renowned Piazza Navona. A special kind of church, being almost impossible to be granted permissions to get married there, let alone arriving before its steps on a historic Buick.

After the solemn ceremony, held by Cardinal Müller, the celebrations continued at Villa Aurelia, a 17th-century baroque Villa built on the Janiculum Hill, from where you can enjoy the best panorama of Rome.

Suspended flower arrangements, made of roses and peonies in white and peach, golden accents and calligraphic details added a luxurious feel to the rounded candlelit tables.

To make it even more theatrical, the Italian dinner was served during sunset time.

Once shared their first slice of cake as husband and wife, the couple with their guests danced the night away on the notes of a live band’s music.
