Huge celebration today as one of my neighbours and good friend Marco married Laura in the regal setting of the town hall in our local town of Gubbio under hot Italian sunshine. Here are the happy couple descending the stairs moments before the traditional rice is thrown.

Clearing through photos this morning at Bellaugello Gay Country House I came across this set which brought back memories of just how the house was and all the effort we put into restoring it to make what you see today. The south elevation of Bellaugello 2009 – 2015 enjoy!
