What a beautiful bright and sunny day in Rome with lot of laughs. I couldn’t have asked for more entertainment! Matt and Kelly with a bunch of their good friends from the States got married at the beautiful Campidoglio Wedding Hall in Rome.
They made their grand entrance together giggling and smiling throughout and exchanged vows and rings with the help of lovely Daniela. Afterwards we did some fine posing around the Campidoglio area and the Forum before hopping into a van for a short excursion of the sights. They both put up a good fight with some Roman soldiers we encountered at the Pantheon! Kelly was whisked of her feet by a group of male tourists at the Trevi fountain and after being ‘collared’ by the local Carabinieri she was released into the arms of her smiling husband. By this time everyone was loving the attention and getting into their posing, we finished up at the Colosseum as the sun was setting, more kissing, more posing … more tourist attention, and still smiling!
Thank you everyone for giving me a very enjoyable day, for your patience and especially for just having a really good laugh.
I wish you both the best and will have the rest of the photos to you very soon. x
Also a big thank you to Daniela De Luca at Dolce Vita Weddings for keeping us on track and the transport around Rome.
The sumptuous Campidoglio Wedding Hall, also known as the “Red Hall”, is located on the top of the Capitoline hill in the heart of Rome next to piazza Venezia. This hill was once the site of a temple for the Capitoline Triad, started by Rome’s fifth king, Tarquinius Priscus. Michelangelo designed the fabulous piazza and restyled the surrounding palazzos dated from 1536. He reversed the classical orientation of the Capitoline, in a symbolic gesture turning Rome’s civic center to face away from the Roman Forum and instead in the direction of Papal Rome: St. Peter’s Basilica. Michelangelo devised a beautiful monumental wide ramped stair (the Cordonata) ascending the hill to reach the high piazza, so that the Campidoglio resolutely turned its back on the Roman Forum that it had once commanded.
