Frank and Roberta’s romantic countryside wedding in Puglia

A love story that intertwines with that of a passionate territory, Salento, with its ardent and engaging lifestyle, the romantic colours of the earth, the alluring perfumes, the charm of tradition and the enchantment of the sea.
Frank and Roberta’s love story, a journey of intense feelings and rush of emotions, surrounded by poetic and rustic scenery among the ancient olive trees, tradition and Salento countryside.

Frank and Roberta chose to celebrate their wedding ceremony in the ancient Cistercian Monastery of Santa Maria della Consolazione of Martano, in the province of Lecce, built in 1686, surrounded by glorious citrus groves, olive trees and the ancient history which is integral to the location. The couple chose a privately owned ancient building for the reception, located also in Martano (Lecce), in the heart of Greek Salento and not far from Melpignano and Calimera. The celebrations with friends, relatives and respected local musical artists lasted all night, to the sound of music, songs and dances in a fairytale atmosphere, among trees, historical traditions and warm lights that resembled fireflies immersed in the glory of nature.
