This one was the ultimate challenge – organising my own wedding! My husband and I had a registry wedding in the UK and then had a symbolic ceremony with around 80 guests from the UK and Italy at a family run hotel near Rome. The owner of the hotel (now a great friend) also runs a catering company and prepared the most wonderful food himself. Local Roman fried vegetables cooked in a huge outdoor oven provided starters while the main meal was served in the dining room of the hotel itself.  A tango band and dancers provided the entertainment long into the night and the hotel arranged an outdoor cocktail bar!
