At Italian weddings, the bride and groom will go to some lengths to make sure that their photos are really memorable: no stiff line-up in front of the church for them! Piazza del Popolo makes the perfect backdrop for wedding photos with its ancient buildings and subtle colours. Wedding parties often come down to this part of the village at the end of the big day. Yesterday evening at dusk I heard a huge commotion and went down to the square to find a hippy-themed wedding party complete with 1970s gear, music, VW campervan and VW beetle.
