The Castle is one of the most evocative and most important Renaissance Castles in Europe, with its majestic gardens, the magnificent and suggestive courtyards and the fascinating rooms full of history. The perfect place for a luxury destination wedding in Italy.

The religious ceremony took place inside the Vatican, at the beautiful and intimate church of Saint Anna. Penelope had her makeup at Palazzo Dama, a 5-star luxury hotel in the heart of Rome. She looked beautiful in her Elie Saab’s bridal dress.
After the ceremony, the guests travelled to Bracciano and were welcomed by the surprising and impressive medieval flag show at the entrance of the Odescalchi Castle. The aperitifs were served inside the ancient Pozzo Hall while the bride and groom were taking the photos with the great photographer Jules Bower on the towers of the Castle.
