It was a Sunday lovely Sunday that I won’t soon forget. We are on the grooms side of the family and keeping with the traditions, all friends and family of the groom gather at his house to begin the morning festivities. The morning started out just right with a mixture of prosecco and peach juice and traditional Sardinian sweets.
Sunday Lovely Sunday | A Traditional Sardinian Wedding
After the greeting of the groom we made our way to the bride’s house in Viddalba; where a long string of cars honked their horns throughout every passing village.
Viddalba is a small comune in the province of Sassari and it was the perfect setting for a traditional Sunday Sardinian wedding.
We greeted the bride; plates were smashed and the groom handed over the bouquet to his waiting bride to be. We then gathered in our cars and made a honking procession to the church in Viddalba … an angle of paradise between culture, sea, hot-springs and nature.
The service lasted over an hour and was one of the most beautiful church wedding services I have seen. There was traditional singing in Gallurese, confetti, more smashing of plates and the long-awaited … kiss.
It was a strange day weather wise; it rained, the sun shone and even a rainbow made a brief colourful appearance.
The view of Castlesardo from the restaurant was priceless as the sun lit up the afternoon sky.
And just when I thought I couldn’t stomach any more delicious food, along came the cake(s). Yes, plural. There were 7 in total but I only managed to snap 4 of the hand-made cakes.
This was one Sunday Lovely Sunday that I won’t soon forget.
