On Saturday we went to the wedding of Federica and Roberta.
The weather forecast was for rain but fortunately at 4.00pm some sunshine broke through the clouds and at 4.05 the bride, looking radiant arrived and the wedding began in the beautiful renaissance church in Orciano.

Federica and Roberta have been living together for some years and as you can see from the top pictures their friends were delighted that they had finally decided to tie the knot.

The reception was held at Villa Rinalducci a recently restored villa near Fano. It was a beautiful setting and again fortune smiled onthe bride and groom as the photos got taken just before the rain began.

In the main entrance to the villa there were drinks and finger food – all beautifully presented and all tasting delicious. We then moved into the marque for the main meal which we started eating at 8.00 and finished eating at 12.30. During the meal we were treated to an incredible thunder and lightening storm causing the electricity to go off for about 40 minutes and we had to eat by candlelight. It was a great evening and made not getting home to 2.00am worthwhile.

Federica and Roberta were having Sunday at home and on Monday they fly to the USA for their honeymoon – two weeks doing the west coast and then the last few days in New York.
