June 24th was really hot. Alan was in the midst his preparations at the Fattoria di Maiano, a few kilometres from the centre of Florence, from where it was possible to witness the spectacle of the hills of Fiesole , the village and the scattering of houses kissed by the sun. We met Sharon at The Grand Hotel Minerva, in the historic centre of Florence. We finally reached the castle and found some respite from the sun in the shadows of the castle walls.. The moving ceremony was held at the Court of Vincigliata Castle, prepared with attention to every detail by Ben Singleton. After we wandered through the rooms of the Castle with Sharon and Alan, taking in the history of the place built centuries ago.
