"Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go." --Truman Capote
We're off this weekend on our second mini-moon to Venice! As a wedding present Matteo's aunt has given us a weekend in a hotel in Grado, a spa town which is about an hour away from Venice. I've never been to Venice before and I can't wait to explore the labyrinth of canals and streets, to see Piazza San Marco and to take a vaporetto down the Canal Grande.......
Our wedding celebrations finished with a bang at the weekend and now life is slowly returning to normal. I feel incredibly lucky to have had two weddings and celebrations that have gone on for over a month. We're truly blessed with wonderful family and friends both in Italy and Scotland and we've been overwhelmed by the kindness shown to us by everyone. Here are just a few photos from Saturday night but there are many more which I'll be sharing over the next few weeks.
I'm now back in Italy and preparing for Part 2 of our wedding. We are having a party in the village to celebrate with all of our friends and family here who couldn't come to Scotland. It's going to be a great night with all of the village invited and lots of pasta to be eaten!
I still have a lot to share about our wedding in Scotland but I'll have to hold off for a bit as hopefully it's going to be featured on Rock My Wedding. I'm not sure when but I'll keep you posted!
Hi, I'm Sarah Elizabeth, a Scottish girl living her dream in Umbria, the 'green heart' of Italy with my Italian husband and our wonderful brown-eyed girl. This blog is our family's story of leading a simple and green life in the beautiful Italian countryside.
