Wedding at Villa Muggia – Maggiore Lake – Stresa – Sara and Adriano July 13th, 2013

Sara and Adriano celebrated their big day in the beautiful Villa Muggia in Stresa on Maggiore Lake. Lovely place, perfect day, beautiful light, a huge park with multi-colored blooms , small paths, thickets, a big fountain in front of the villa … This villa has a small quirk in the park there are statues of african animals! Working here was great. This lovely couple that loves rock allowed me to use a song by Guns and Roses for the slideshow! (see YouTube video at the bottom of the article) As often happens, the table of “experts” was the most exiting … friends then organized a funny video projected during dinner …. A great party perfectly organized by Diana Da Ros …

Wedding in Villa Iachia – Ruda – Valentina and Dean – June 29th, 2013

Here we are again in one of my favorite villas in Friuli, Villa Iachia in Ruda. A very elegant villa with a huge garden that not only allows guests to enjoy the evening but also helps photographers to find great location for pictures ! Valentina and Dean are a couple from Trieste, which held a awesome party. As always we started from the preparation of  Valentina, followed by her mother and her closest friends. Then we moved to where Dean was going on a nice aperitif pre ceremony, the church was very close. After the ceremony, another appetizer, post ceremony in front of the church … with all the guests and other friends … and then again in Villa Iachia …

Wedding at Grand Hotel Tremezzo – Como Lake – Victoria and Kent – June 23rd, 2013

This was truly an international marriage, Victoria (Russian), Kent, (Chinese) , some guests from London, some from around the world … I would say it was a nice mix. Victoria is a manager who works in the City of London, a strong character and really a kind person. I first met her via Skype a few months before the wedding. She prepared in a beautiful room at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo on Lake Como, with her close friends and a lot of emotion. Kent was incredible … he was like an boy to his birthday party, he had fun and did entertain everyone with his jokes, tireless! We had fun al night long, in addition to speeches during dinner some …

Wedding at Swiss Diamond Hotel – Vacallo – Switzerland – Barbara and Sandro June 8th 2013

Here we are at a wedding beyond the Italian borders, not far away to tell the truth, in Switzerland. Barbara and Sandro are a beautiful young couple who organized a great bubbling day! The surprises were so many … stating from the  Ferrari F308 that Barbara arrived with at the Church of Santa Croce in Vacallo, where they created a heart of flowers on the entrance door, up to arrival of the hotel with a super fast motorboat. Small note, Barbara and Sandro moved from the church to the motorboat by the Ferrari and we chased them with my car (a Honda hybrid) on the highway … my car is equipped with a small and silent engine  …. I assure …

Wedding in Vernazza – Cinque Terre – Steven and Marie-Eve – June 7th, 2013

What a beautiful day, this wedding was really great! Steven and Marie-Eve are a young couple from Quebec (Canada) who contacted me a few weeks before the wedding. Immediately after graduating, working for a few months they decided to get married. Literally improvising the wedding in Italy. The fact is that no one knew about the wedding, parents included! In short, they took the luggage, their best friends and flew to Italy for the big day. An extraordinary couple, that made me entertained up and down the stairs of Vernazza. The great thing about this story is that they found me and Fabrizio Viscardi (wedding planner) both on the internet. they didn’t know that we are friends and we worked …

Wedding at Grand Hotel Villa San Carlo Borromeo – Valentina and Stefano

I will remember this wedding as one of the most danced … yes! The company was really unleashed. Stefano and Valentina are a young couple who has realized their dream . They chose  a awesome location, Villa San Carlo Borromeo in Senago, Italy. I started the service in the early morning in the lounge where the hair stylist and make-up artists were preparing Valentina, among the admiring glances of other customers and a few games of mirrors (there were a lot!). Valentina’s mother  followed her at all stages, in silence, excited …. then we moved back home for the dress, at one point they lost the comb for the veil … phone calls started .. but shortly  it appeared magically …

Wedding in Villa Cipressi – Varenna – Lake Como – Heather and Andrew – May 29, 2013

Heather and Andrew were married in Varenna, a place where I am always happy to come back. Varenna is a small village on Como Lake, well protected by the mayor and citizens who I often see to drink a coffee in the centre. For me it is a pleasure to work in that place that is so quiet and nice, I always arrive earlier and I have breakfast sitting in the square or in front of the lake … it’s really an anti stress! Let’s talk about the bride and the groom! Heather and Andrew came from Washington, USA, they wanted to celebrate their wedding in Italy with about fifty relatives and friends. I followed both Heather and  Andrew’s getting ready. …

Wedding in Villa Necchi Campiglio – Milan – Francesca and Flavio May 25, 2013

The rain never stopped… the whole day, but Flavio Francesca and where not scared! As often happens I followed the preparation of the bride, in Francesca’ s house were her mother, her aunt and her best  friend. I remember the story how they first met. In elementary school, the teacher asked them to draw the “portrait” of his/her preferred friend and they found themself in that way … A long-standing friendship that endures to today, they have grown together to create a strong bond. Immediately after the ceremony in the beautiful Church St. Andrea in Milan we moved to Villa Necchi Campiglio where I am always happy to come back. The party was fun and lively, they danced all night …

Harold and Judy, April 15th, 2013 Harold and Judy will remain in my thoughts for a long time, they are a couple that really impressed me. But let’s start from the beginning ! We are on the beautiful Garda Lake in Gardone Riviera, at the stunning Villa Fiordaliso, Harold and Judy are from Hamburg with a dozen very close friends and decided to celebrate their wedding in Italy. I cannot say too much, but they all work on an artistic enviroment, in fact when Judy arrived to the gazebo for the celebration, all friends started singing. I was thinking to be at a Broodway musical 🙂 But the most important moment was when Judy (she is from Croatia) sang a …

Family Portrait in Milan Andrea, Roberta and Mariasole

It ‘s time for reorganization and revision of my portfolio, looking at my catalog  I found myself to dwell on the family portrait of Andrea, Roberta and Mariasole. I decided to share some shots of this beautiful family. There is one thing to say, they’re friends, real friends and photographing people close is always difficult and easy at the same time. The portrait photography is an interpretation of the subject, the photo must represent them through my eyes, so if the relationship is established this job is complex, I am influenced … I decided to approach it in a very instinctive way, without thinking too much. We took a walk, some jokes with Mariasole,  kisses and hugs. … the rest …
