In recent years there is nothing to do but talk about Salento also in terms of wedding: there are those who choose this land as a destination for their honeymoon and who even makes it the ideal location for their wedding. The luxury resort of Borgo Egnazia is located in Savelletri di Fasano, in the province of Brindisi, a few steps from the most spectacular sea awarded several times with Legambiente’s blue sails, and offers its guests a wonderful location out of time. The resort is visited every year by numerous foreign actors and VIPs due to its exclusivity and privacy.
The American soap opera Beautiful, for example, has chosen to celebrate its 25th anniversary in this evocative setting: the ten episodes, which the Italian public can only see in the spring of 2013, focus on the marriage of two young protagonists of the series. Ronn Moss, Katherine Kelly Lang (Ridge and Brooke), Don Diamont (Bill Spencer), Jacqueline Macinnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) were among the rocks of Polignano a mare, between the farms of Savelletri and the trulli of Alberobello. Kim Matula (Hope Logan) and Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer). The wedding between Hope and Liam was therefore celebrated in our Bel Paese, on the advice of Brooke.
To confirm the positive trend of the wedding sector in Puglia we also thought about the event that has just ended in Campi Salentina. A great success for the 2012 edition of the Nuova Fiera Sposi in fact that proposed a program full of ad hoc appointments for curious and future spouses About 100 stands in the “New Fair Sposi”, held in Campi Salentina from 25 to 28 October 2012 and organized by Giuseppe Crusi’s Salentomio Srl, with the Patronage of the Puglia Region, the Province of Lecce, the Chamber of Commerce of Lecce, the Municipality of Campi Salentina. An exceptional selection of the most prestigious companies and the best professionals in the sector, to browse, choose, try, and ask about their weddings. The real protagonists of the event were the craftsmanship and innovation of the Salento area, offering young couples all the best that Puglia has to offer when it comes to weddings. A very popular moment was the Show Cooking by pastry chef Angelo Bisconti, inventor of the Obama pasticciotto and the Pistachio, who for the occasion made a cake inspired by the soubrette Belen Rodriguez.
But speaking of Puglia and wedding it cannot be forgotten that in this region there is the most famous center for the production of Italian wedding dresses located in Putignano. In the town there is even the Consorzio Sposa & moda Italia.
However, the positive trend with a completely Apulian flavor has not only infected Italians, but foreign celebrities of great fame have recently chosen the land of Salento precisely for their wedding. Last certainly the American singer and actor Justin Timberlake, who wed with his beautiful girlfriend Jessica Biel, a few days ago.
The weeklies Hello! and People, who put on the cover Timberlake jumping from joy in a tuxedo signed Tom Ford and Biel in pink dress signed Gianbattista Valli. Pink, in fact, is the latest trend in Hollywood weddings, as Anne Hathaway and Reese Whitherspoon have also recently chosen this nuance.
