Devie & Ivan invited us to Rome, the heart of Italy to film their Catholic/ Indonesian wedding celebrations. They were joined by over a hundred and seventy family and friends of whom the majority had travelled from Jakarta to be with the couple.
The celebrations started with a private tour of The Vatican Museum for the whole wedding party followed by a welcome dinner at a nearby restaurant Trattoria de Gli Amici in the Trastevere area of the city for some delicious Italian food.
The grandeur and elegance of the Vatican Museum with all its' worldly treasures and sophistication perfectly reflected Devie & Ivan's ceremony which was the centre piece of their celebrations. The two were married by Bishops and in a beautiful service, although conducted entirely in Indonesian we could still feel the emotion throughout. Devie & Ivan released two white doves, a symbol of love, peace and happiness into the beautiful blue Italian sky a tradition denoting a newlyweds’ departure from their families and toward life’s new journey.
Canapés and drinks awaited everyone on their arrival at Villa Aurelia and the evening commenced with a speech from the couple. A whole host of foods including delicious sushi and sashimi was enjoyed post speech and the wine flowed and all were merry. Devie's friend Joanne stepped up for the next speech and blew everyone away with an adapted version of Taylor Swift's Love Story changing the lyrics to tell Devie's story this was humorous and intelligent and was followed with more speeches and the cake cutting. A few photographs later and the day was complete :)
Devie and Ivan it was an absolute honour to be a part of your celebrations, we will remember our time in Rome with you for a long time!
