Jumaan and Luca both live in the UK and their dream was to get married in Puglia, where Luca, being Italian, has a lot of family members, and where everything is made to make the best wedding ever. Both of them being vegan, Jumaan and Luca opted for an all vegan menu for themselves and almost one hundred guests, who came to this amazing region from different parts of the world: the UK, Lebanon, Nigeria, Dubai and many more destinations.
Masseria Fulcignano near a picturesque town of Galatone became a rustic yet charming backdrop for their multicultural wedding with lots of vibrant colors and sounds. Being an all vegan wedding both Jumaan and Luca wished to use all the natural elements for decorations picking vegetables, plants and other eco-friendly materials.
From Jumaan: The most important thing we realized was it’s your guests who make the wedding. Even though there may be things that you wish you’d done better, (and it’s hard to let go, because when you plan for many months, you want it to be perfect), nobody notices the little things that weren’t quite right, so throw caution to the wind and just have a great time! Whatever happens, even if there’s a storm outside, your guests want to be there and they love you and they will make the wedding amazing! The happiest thing was having so many different cultures together, Luca is Italian, I am half English, half Lebanese and we had aspects from each of our backgrounds in the wedding and having guests from all over the world, really added sugar and spice to the party!!
