If you were to imagine a stunning and absolutely breathtaking wedding venue where to celebrate your destination wedding in Italy, the city of Orvieto would absolutely be on the top of your list.

Orvieto, ancient land of the Etruscans, is situated on the top of a volcanic tuff cliff  know as “La Rupe”, ridded with hundreds of caves, tunnels and wells and perfectly combining  three thousand years of history with nature.

Just 10 minutes far from this picturesque scenery, in the middle of the beautiful Umbrian countryside, stands La Badia di Orvieto, a XII century Benedictine Abbey where getting married is more than a dream come true.

Anastasia and Alex, together with their closest friends and families, came from UK and India in this exclusive wedding venue. They had a religious catholic ceremony inside the 12th century Romanesque church, adorned with 12th and 14th century frescoes and marble floor. Catherine from The Wedding Boutique Italy, perfectly decorated it, making this place  the perfect setting for a romantic ceremony.

Anastasia was absolutely stunning with her Pronovias bridal gown, which was more than perfect with this idillic setting. Alex looked just like a charming Italian gentleman wearing his Ted Baker suit.

They had a typical Italian wedding reception alfresco, in the ancient Sala Capitolare, under the ancient ruins of gothic arches and tower. This is now an outstanding terrace with a breathtaking view on Orvieto tuff cliff where they also danced all night long under thousands of stars.

KIND WORDS FROM THE COUPLE

From the minute we Skype’d with Francesca and Simone, it was so clear that they we’re the ones we NEEDED to capture our special wedding weekend. Their warmth and genuine passion for what they did was so apparent. They went from being a vendor we were hiring, to feeling like friends who happened to be badass, talented storytellers.

They filmed our indian ceremony on Friday night and the entire following wedding day. I was initially nervous about the video because i really wanted it to capture our personalities and tell our story, as well as our friends and families. They managed this so effortlessly. All our friends and family commented on how lovely they were to be around. They made everyone feel so comfortable which resulted in natural, beautiful moments on camera…even from the Groom who hates the camera!!

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lumos Produzioni 1000%, they are professional, so talented, so beautifully warm and so much fun. Our wedding film was presented in such a gorgeous presentation box and delivered with such love and care. We will treasure it forever.

The day goes by so quickly and it’s impossible to remember all the little moments…make the best decision of your wedding and choose Francesca and Simone to film your special day (and ideally more if possible!) I can’t count how many times I have watched the full version as well as the teaser. I will be watching it for years, it is the perfect memory of a truly magical time and we ate so so grateful for them capturing it so perfectly. This coupe are so incredibly generous with their time and nothing is too much. They are so much more than just your wedding videographers, you will fall in love with their style, creativity and most importantly them! <3 Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Anastasia and Alexander. xxx
