Here, the couple sits at a table together with their eyes on the mayor, who performs the ceremony.
Choosing to get married in a unique setting like that of a castle is not for everyone, but Kathy and Ivan have exceeded all expectations. Their wedding took place along the Three Castles of Bellinzona, registered since 2000 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The civil ceremony took place at the Castle of Sasso Corbaro, also called the castle of Cima, where the mayor of Bellinzona formalized their union. Immediately afterward, we went to the Montebello Castle for a very short photo session with the newlyweds.

The bride and groom finally get to see each other for the first time on their wedding day, and the groom hugs his bride on top of the castle surrounded by their excited guests.
The inside of the castle is made up of rustic stone walls, and the large, wooden doors stand open as the bride and groom prepare to enter, hand in hand.
In a comical, lighthearted moment, as the couple is seated at the table where they will be married, the groom leans over to the bride and they give each other a funny look.
The bride and the couple’s two witnesses applaud as the groom excitedly shows off his wedding ring.
