Happy New Year from Country Weddings Italy
Hi Everyone, a Very Happy New Year to you all, or “Buon Anno” as we say in Italy.
Very big congratulations to all the couples who got married over the holiday period.
We haven't finished celebrating yet here in Italy, as January 6th is Epiphany, a national bank holiday, and a very important one for children as an old witch "Befana" comes to visit during the night and leaves stockings full of sweets and goodies, or full of coal if you've been naughty!! This makes the end-of-year holidays one continuous celebration from 24th December to January 6th.......never-ending!!
We have been busy bees during the festivities, however, and I personally am feeling motivated and ready for everything 2012 will bring, hopefully a successful year for Country Weddings Italy and health and happiness for my family.
I’ve just booked a flight back to the UK to attend the Tatton Hall Wedding Fayre in Cheshire on 28th and 29th January. Tatton Hall is a gorgeous stately home near Knutsford, and my next post will be about the wonderful aristocratic residence that we are being allowed to offer as a wedding venue for couples wishing to get married in this part of the world. Log on later! I will only be going to the fayre as a visitor this year: I’ll be looking round and seeing what’s new on the English wedding scene, so that Daniela and I can incorporate any special wishes from British couples into their Italian wedding. That applies to any nationality of course. We will willingly help you to incorporate any of your own traditions into your Italian wedding celebrations. It is so lovely getting married abroad, different and “exotic”, but many brides have told me that they like to have a “piece of home” with them, and as that is often a bit difficult to fit in a suitcase, then we will try to recreate that special something here.
Please remember to contact us a firstname.lastname@example.org for any information you may require. Our previous blogs here contain some information about locations, photographers, florists etc, but we will be pleased to send you some more detailed information and photographs by email.
We look forward to working with you this year, whatever your wedding date!Nicola and Daniela
