Modern + Fresh Elopement Inspiration from Southern Italy

Modern Romance in Apulia

The region of Apulia, otherwise known as Puglia, in the southern part of Italy that forms the “boot” is one of the dreamiest locations for locals + tourists alike. Known for its whitewashed hill towns, dilapidated farmhouses, long stretches of Mediterranean coastline, and the trulli stone huts — it’s definitely on our list of places to visit!

Today’s elopement inspiration from event designer + planner Camilla Cascino is coming from just there! Bringing a fresh and modern take to the Italian landscape, the Riserva Naturale Torre Guaceto served as an enchanting elopement location.

Let’s head to Italy in these photos by Camilla Anchisi Photography!
