On 24 June 2017, we’ve hosted our wedding celebrations at Masseria Giulio. We would not have been able to share this special day with our friends and family without the incredible dedication of our hosts Ian and Lucy. They have gone out of their way to help us arrange everything, from finding a priest to perform the ceremony to aligning all the catering, DJ and ultimately hosting the entire event. Ian and Lucy and their 2 daughters have made my wedding day the most beautiful day of my life.
We have leaned heavily on them to coordinate everything and until we arrived the day before our wedding we hadn’t even seen the Masseria. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice and charming everything looked and even more impressed by all the work Ian had put in arranging the details to our big day. The apartments are absolutely lovely, brand new, super clean and as charming as you would expect from a converted stable. Because we had rented out the entire terrain we were able to peek into all 5 apartments and both ourselves and our guests were impressed by the accommodations. We all received a lovely basked of breakfast products, including a delicious home-made cherry jam.
On the first day, while we were preparing for our big party the next day, Ian, Lucy and their 2 kids gave our guests a warm welcome and accommodated all their wishes.
Our wedding party the next day was an absolute blast. Although I was incredibly nervous, due to the fact that we had not been at the Masseria before and thus had not had the opportunity for a wedding rehearsal, everything went like a dream. Together with their team, Ian and Lucy hosted our 50-heads wedding party and coordinated the ceremony, reception drinks, speeches, dinner and party with the precision you would expect from professional wedding planners. Everything, from the wines which Ian handpicked from neighboring vineyards to the food they sourced from local suppliers was spot on and absolutely delicious. Our party, which was held by (and later inside – no tat wasn’t part of the planning) the pool has been an amazing event which we will remember forever. Ian and Lucy have been absolutely splendid and we cannot thank them enough for all the effort they have put in to hosting our big day.
We have received compliments about the location from every single one of our guests and we feel proud and privileged to recommend Masseria Giulio and its owners as the most amazing, magical place for what was to us the most important day of our lives.
