Destination Jewish wedding in Borgo Citta di Castello, Italy

Jenny and Neil and their Destination Jewish wedding in Borgo Citta di Castello

When Jenny and Neil arrived in Amoretti’s office they didn’t have yet a net idea of the way they wanted their wedding to be. They only knew they wanted to get married in Umbria because of Jenny’s childhood’s family links. In fact, Jenny is English but she grew up in Rome and her family had a country house in Umbria. So they wanted an Italy destination Jewish wedding.

Moreover, they used to stay in a borgo near Citta Di Castello, which was an abandoned town since the Second World War in Umbria, then restored in the 1980s.

For their destination Jewish wedding decoration, they asked for a rustic design but with a modern feeling. So, we tried to bring as much nature as possible into the town and the decoration. Besides, the centrepiece was made with olive trees raised onto a metal structure to make think of the trunk of a tree. The table decoration had also a deeper meaning. Trees in the Jewish religion represent life and transmission. The trees planted this day will survive us, our children and our grandchildren.

Finally, the wedding was well managed, it was like an Italian family street party. The atmosphere was friendly and festive, the only thing our J & N couple had to do was enjoy the most special day of their lives.
