A Modern, Minimalist Italian Wedding at Masseria Moroseta

Photography by Monika Frias.

Against a backdrop of ancient olive trees, Sara and Alex were married at the iconic Masseria Moroseta – a modern farmhouse that sits on the edge of Ostuni, Puglia. With a canvas of sweeping country views and glimpses of the Mediterranean sea, the magic of their surrounds took centre stage, offset with minimal, modern styling.

Framed by suspended silks strewn from olive tree branches, Sara and Alex exchanged personally written wedding vows in an intimate ceremony, bringing together friends and family from different corners of the world. 

For Aperitivo hour, guests indulged in an artisanal cheese and charcuterie station, sipping on bespoke Moreseta Spritz cocktails and Prosecco. As dusk fell, a full moon illuminated a magical alfresco dinner party dripping with candlelight, all captured by Monika Frias.

How We Met

We met in Ibiza at Experimental Cocktail Club in 2018. I had just moved to London from Toronto a few months before. Alex was in Ibiza on a boy’s trip celebrating a birthday that weekend. We were both newly single and almost didn’t go because we both had quite a lot of other things on at that time. After dinner with a girlfriend that first night, the hostess came over to our table and asked if we could share a taxi with the boys sitting a few tables down as we were headed to the same part of town. We said hi to the group of 8 handsome English boys, and there was Alex. It just so happened that we were all headed to see the DJ, Black Coffee that night. We ended up spending the entire weekend with them, Alex extended his trip and stayed with us for a few more nights. And that was the beginning of the next four and a half years.


Our Engagement Story

Alex proposed in Palma, Mallorca before we headed off to his family summer home in Pollenca. We went to dinner on a Tuesday night at our favourite restaurant, El Camino. After dinner, Alex asked the waiter for a bottle of wine to take home. I was confused why we needed more wine on a Tuesday but he said why not sit on our terrace, listen to music, play chess and have another glass?

Then he came out with a book – A More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible by Charles Eisenstein, sat next to me and told me to open it. The first page read, Will you marry me? And there he was, on his knee with a ring!  There is a lot of meaning and significance behind this book for the two of us and how we chose to live our lives.


Marriage To Us Means…

I think there is real beauty in two people supporting each other wholeheartedly, through the good and the bad, to accept what life throws at you and grow together through it. The decision to join forces, to co-create a more beautiful future and bring our family and friends together. We are strong believers in the power of community and working hard to be an active and valued member in ours, personally and professionally.  Individually, we are all strong and capable of more than we know, but I feel we become even more powerful when we have our person rooting for us. At that point, even our wildest dreams feel possible.
