When In Rome: The Wedding Of Camille Lhuillier And Andrea Albani - Weddings

All roads lead to Rome for this couple.

After getting married in a more intimate civil wedding in Manila back in 2020, Camille Lhuillier and Andrea Albani have now walked down the aisle in a grand celebration in Italy.

Lhuillier and Albani said their vows at the La Posta Vecchia Hotel, a seaside villa in Ladispoli’s Pazo Laziale.

Even the preceding welcome party and despedida de soltera were extravagant affairs that completed the three-day celebration between May 19 to 21.

Mark Bumgarner designed Lhuillier’s pre-wedding attire: an iron-pleated pink gown with bow belt, as well as her embroidered white gown with satin skirt and bell sleeves.

The Italian capital previously hosted the la pedida de mano between the couple’s respective parents in January 2020. There, Albani’s family formally asked for Lhuillier’s hand in marriage.

Initially set for October 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic effectively pushed back the couple’s wedding date almost two years despite every detail already planned way back.

Challenges notwithstanding

Lhuillier and Albani met in late 2018 following a call from the former’s older brother, Jean Henri, president and chief executive officer of PJ Lhuillier Group of Companies.

He had asked his sister to accommodate Albani, an international businessman who was then a visiting diplomat from San Marino.

The couple immediately clicked. They chose to stay together for keeps despite initial long-distance challenges marked by frequent visits to one another.

Once more, they say “I do” for eternity.
