A romantic destination wedding in Rome – Vale & David

Vale and David celebrated their wedding day on 14 October 2022. This stunning destination wedding took place at Villa Aurelia in Rome and was filled with love, decadence and beautiful little details.

The happy couple used Wedding Photo Swap to collect photos from all their guests and see their wedding from every angle. We especially love the chic wedding guest outfits, fun selfies and smiles all caught on camera.

Vale and David said their vows within a beautiful chapel in Rome, filled with stunning artwork and impressive architecture. Vale walked down the aisle in a ballgown style wedding dress with chic three quarter length sleeves and an understanded bridal bouquet. David wore a tux and the wedding guests all followed the black tie dress code.

After saying ‘I do’ in this dreamy setting, the couple then headed to their reception dinner at Villa Aurelia. Dinner was held outside in a picture perfect location, guests were treated to huge glass jars of chocolates and an oversized mille-feuille topped with strawberries and chocolate in place of a traditional wedding cake. As the sun began to set, the music started and the happy couple and their guests danced the night away and took plenty of fun photos – thanks to a box of props, signs and wigs available.
