Benvenuti, failte, croeso and welcome to the post-wedding update of our website. For those who came, thank you so much for sharing some special times under the Tuscan sun and stars. We hope you had as much fun as we did. If you can't remember much, either you had a bit too much fun (Gareth), or it's because - as my cousin Giovanna said - "E sembrato un sogno", "It seemed like a dream".

But to prove it all actually happened, we've posted a gallery of photos for your viewing pleasure. Once you have seen them, please feel free to leave a Guestbook comment. As for the rest of the website, we've left it as it was prior to the wedding. Back then we couldn't imagine that our few days of 'wine and roses' in Florence would be as brilliant as they turned out to be.

Please note: Due to the day's late start, we recommend that you eat lunch beforehand. It is requested that ladies cover any bare shoulders whilst inside the church. Given this, and as we hope to be dining outdoors there is a chance that it will get chilly after dusk so we advise ladies to bring a wrap or bolero. For more information on how to reach the venue, please see the Travel page.
