Forte Dei Marmi

Last year I was asked to be best man at my friend's wedding in Forte Dei Marmi in Italy. Forte Dei Marmi is a posh resort in Tuscany and is full of well to do rich Italians: http://www.vacanzeinversilia.com/eng/forte-dei-marmi.html.

Last year I was asked to be best man at my friend’s wedding in Forte Dei Marmi in Italy. Forte Dei Marmi is a posh resort in Tuscany and is full of well to do rich Italians: http://www.vacanzeinversilia.com/eng/forte-dei-marmi.html.

The wedding itself took place in a traditional Italian church situated in the town centre. I was at the front with the wedding rings. After the ceremony and a few photos, the bride and groom biked their way on this pedalo type thing to the reception which took place on the beach front. Champagne was served on the actual beach in the scorching sun whilst photos were snapped.

After the initial drinks, dinner was served. This entailed a five course meal with various courses of antepasta. A folk duo accompanied the meal and when the meal was over I was able to give my best man’s speech. The groom didn’t seem too unhappy despite me recalling his love for plastic figurines.

This was followed by the party itself which was good fun and involved free booze. Even the English vicar got involved. This went on until 1 am and was followed by an impromptu sing song on the mic. Hangovers were evident the next day before everyone made their way back home to England.

I used my colorsplash to capture the party scene. However, I was busy enjoying myself to take too many photos!
