Kat & James, Abbazia San Pietro in Valle

Ever dreamt of having a wedding in an ancient monastery?

This beautiful wedding took place in Abbazia San Pietro in Valle, nestled in the hills of Umbria near Terni, Italy. The white and gold colour theme with chandeliers and candlelight perfectly contrasted the lush greenery nature reserve of the national park. The ethereal frescoed church, revealing pieces of ancient art and a small cloister made for a picture perfect day.

As soon as we saw this venue we feel in love! It isn’t far from Rome, which made it accessible for guests, but it still felt remote enough to make it an adventure. Most of James and Kat guests chose to stay in the monastery but for others who wanted to stay further afield, there were many options to choose from.

Kat looked absolutely glamorous in a elegant gown from HalfPenny London and the groom looked dapper in a black tux from Edit Suits. Even on a cloudy day with drizzling rain, it didn’t dampen the mood or hinder their perfect day. Nothing could stop them dancing the night away under an open sky of twinkling fairy lights.
