The drive from Padua to Barga was another long stretch but as we were visiting our wedding venue at "I Cedri" for the first time the next day, we had no choice. It was another post midnight arrival but thankfully we managed to find the Sosta "Camper Barga" before too long with the guidance of a local. We had visited Barga around 5 years previously and fell in love with this gorgeous town so to be back here, this time with two children, was an absolute dream.
Feeling somewhat shattered the next morning, the excitement of visiting "I Cedri" and meeting our host Daniela for the first time helped us quickly overcome our fatigue. We were utterly blown away by the venue from the moment of our approach, it was utterly breathtaking and even more beautiful than we had imagined. We spent a few hours discussing finer wedding details and took time to absorb the beauty of this amazing hilltop location that overlooked Barga.
Not a bad view for a carpark!

It was such an enormous relief to finally see our venue and to have even our lofty expectations blown away. It all felt very real now and we started to feel rather excited!
