Italy is the country of art, good food and love at an international level to the point that, lately, it has become one of the favourite destinations of Destination Wedding, because it is very loved by foreigners, but not only! For example, many Italian couples who have been living abroad for several years choose to return to the place of origin of their families for their marriage. However, also choosing a region, a province, or a different city from their own, means doing Destination Wedding.
The beauty of organizing a special event “for few intimates”.
One of the features that has made the Destination Wedding an increasingly common choice is certainly the number of guests, far lower than a traditional wedding! In fact, more and more often we organize intimate weddings, with a few guests to fully enjoy this experience!
Destination Wedding: why Matera?
After cities full of attractiveness and history such as Rome, Florence, and Venice, it is the turn of Matera and the magic of its Sassi. In case you were not already aware of it, you should know that Matera is one of the oldest cities in the world, a peculiarity that has made it a popular destination for tourists from all over the world, thanks to its breath-taking scenery and the charm of the local culture.
A location that we often recommend for both Destination and Intimate Wedding is, for example, Sextantio, in the heart of the Sassi and overhanging the Gravina stream. The result of a cultural project of conservative recovery of 18 caves carved into the tuff and of a common space in an ancient rock-hewn church, Sexantio has an atmosphere unique in its kind. Furthermore, its terrace offers a stunning view of the Murgia Park and lends itself perfectly to hosting simulated civil ceremonies or intimate candlelight dinners.
Mauro and Vanessa have chosen to accommodate their friends and relatives inside the fabulous rooms covered with stone and tuff that bear the signs of a past life.
Immersed in a typical Materana atmosphere, the newlyweds and their guests brought with them an indelible memory.
Destination Wedding in Matera: our advice
Our advice is always to opt for a weekend to dedicate to the guests who will arrive in the city for the wedding, discover with them the beauties of our territory, taste the culinary specialities and the wines of our best cellars. And then, to facilitate the transfers and fully enjoy every moment, the ideal is to choose a single place (such as Sextantio) in which to carry out the wedding, from the ceremony to the reception.
Relying on those who, like us at Sud Experience, have knowledge of the territory and the places is essential to have solutions sewn on the desires of the couple and to offer the possibility of living exclusive, original, and meaningful experiences.
