Ben and Lucie’s wedding in Portofino

wedding in Portofino

The civil ceremony was planned at the Castle in Portofino, an ancient Fortress, completely made of stones, with a surprising large terrace overlooking the enchanting panorama over the sea and the gulf of Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure.

Non only the ceremony was a successful emotional and dramatic moment, but it was also followed by some very special touches of style and uniqueness…

Walking down from the Castle to the reception restaurant, the wedding party was preceded by an hornpiper, strongly desired by the bride, who had always dreamt of this kind of sound for her wedding day!

Once down in Portofino’s main square, bride and groom jumped on a traditional Italian three wheeled car (the Ape car) towards their reception!

At the restaurant they were welcomed by an acoustic pop/folk trio of musicians that made them dance and party for the whole evening!

Of course food and drinks were a great focus…as always happens in a real Italian wedding reception!

What made this wedding very special, though, was that it totally reflected Ben and Lucie’s personalities: it was at once sweet and sparkling, romantic and enjoyable…to be sipped slowly in order to perceive each taste separately… so to be able to discover each flavour, see each shade, taste each moment of a day which is going to stay still in their memories for all their lives…

Lucie says:

“Hi Cinzia,

So, my dear, I have to tell you that you pulled off the BEST wedding any of my guests have ever been to. Actually, it would be the best pre-party, boat ride, & wedding all wrapped into one. People are going to be talking about this one forever! I couldn’t be happier (other than I am back home & at work right now)!! We plan on having another party here at home & have a video of our photos playing. People will be able to see, but unless you were there, it is hard to explain the feeling!”
