Elisa and Michele, Wedding in the Castle of Vigoleno

Elisa and Michele, Wedding in the Castle of Vigoleno In Elisa’s room: The red velvet canopy bed, the paintings, the antique mirror… I know them very well. Elisa is sitting silently, looking through the window, her fingers tapping on her knees. The hills of Piacenza, in front of her, reflect the light entering the red room of the Vigoleno Castle. In Michele’s room: His eyes were dancing around without rest, a few intimate friends around, helping him in this strong moment. Michelle smiles, almost trembling. I rarely see grooms so excited. I try to distract him by explaining that in Elisa’s room is all smooth. He relaxes a little and dresses in a few minutes. In Elisa’s room: Time flies, the frenzy increases. There’s a lot …

Wedding in Villa Castellina

WEDDING in VILLA CASTELLINA On more wedding I photographed last year, I promise shortly to start telling those of this year but the intense season keeps me away from the blog. It was a hot, sunny day where the smiles lit the candlelight dinner. We are between Piacenza and Parma, precisely in Castellina in a sober and elegant villa. My luck is not only travel to beautiful places and discovering elegant villas that history has given us, but in meeting beautiful people. With Paolo and Teresa it was so easy to work with that I remember their day as if I was a guest 😉 . But I want to make a leap at the end of the party, at the last photo I took …

That precious moment before you leave to be married

That precious moment before you leave to be married Photos by me, words by my friend Diane Rossi. No one can turn their eyes away from your stunning image and as you study your own reflection in the mirror, you know that you own that moment.. Time slows down to a complete standstill, while your heart beats excitedly in your chest. The insecurity of this moment communicates such great tenderness, which moves me so profoundly and renders every Bride so very real to me. I have met couples who seem like they have run a marathon or even endured an Ironman challenge during the year leading to the day of their marriage.. but in that split second we all share …

Shyness and elegance, a wedding in a medieval village

Shyness and elegance, a wedding in a medieval village Shyness and elegance often go hand in hand, I ‘ve seen several times in gestures, expressions and choices. Elegance, you can’t buy it, it’s an instinct, like the grace and simplicity. Shyness often accompanies this quality, elegant people don’t expose themself but they are remembered. This is the case of Antonella that in taste and choices left me a memory of refined simplicity. Her dress looked like a water arum, flower that has been chosen for her bouquet. Everything has been consistent, from the location to the preparations, the flowers. Some shots of this lovely wedding made perfect from the Castle of Vigoleno team (Elena, Claudia, Nicola and all the others …

Wedding in Vigoleno Castle – Piacenza hills

Wedding in Vigoleno Castle I was entering in Daniela’s room and I saw that the light was like in a Caravaggio’s painting … We are in the private rooms of the Castle of Vigoleno, on the hills of Piacenza, Daniela is sitting in front of the window, the sun bouncing off the pale stones of the village illuminating the interior of the room. Her smile betrays a bit jittery, mom and her friends around were giggling during the finalization of the hairstyle. We moved into the living room to wear the dress, all, in their own way, gave her a hand. Michele was waiting inside the Roman church a few meters away from her. Almost all the guests arrived and quickly filled the chairs inside. Outside, the …
