We tell you the love story of Grace and Matt, a cuple of English guys in love, with the dream of getting married in Southern Italy, in Puglia, the place of their first romantic getaway a few years ago.
After months of preparations, Grace and Matt have finally arrived in Novoli, a small village a few steps from Lecce, famous for hosting the suggestive Fòcara, one of the oldest traditions of Salento that takes place every year. With them, a few and very excited relatives and friends to celebrate an unforgettable day together!
The ritual and the celebrations took place in a truly unique location, our Tenuta Giardini Nuovi: a finely restored and furnished nineteenth-century villa, surrounded by a large garden.
The preparation of the bride and groom took place in the two elegant suites, housed on the ground floor of the main villa: a mix of enthusiasm and excitement enveloped bridesmaids, witnesses and of course the couple, in such a frenetic and moving moment!
For the bride it was really essential to be able to count on the help of our precious Wedding Planner, Elisabetta D'Ambrogio: with her experience and professionalism, she supported her during the day, as well as obviously for the perfect organization of the whole event, also managing all the suppliers involved.
It's time to say yes, I do! Suggestive vineyards and elegant olive trees welcome Grace, Matt - beautiful in their sophisticated clothes - and their guests, creating an enchanting frame and sealing a magical atmosphere: Tenuta Giardini Nuovi, with its precious halls, is a small jewel of charm and architecture where to exchange the sweetest and most sincere promises.
Between applause and a few tears of joy, Grace and Matt are finally husband and wife and the celebrations can begin!
A traditional menu but revisited in a modern key pleases the palates, carefree notes brighten the party, up to the evening, when the magical moment of the cake arrives. The swimming pool in the garden, embellished by the typical Apulian lights, is the perfect background: the cake awaits the newlyweds at the end of a romantic jasmine pergola.
The cadeau for the guests? A bottle of wine produced by our Tenuta, with a personalized label for the occasion!
Grace and Matt made us dream, with laughter and hugs, in a familiar and warm context, all immersed in the splendid setting of Tenuta Giardini Nuovi.
