Persian Wedding in Lake Como
The situation is very simple.
Leila and Gaspare live in Texas (USA)
Leila is of Persian origin
Gaspare is of Italian-Chinese-Philippine origins born in Australia (I hope I am not wrong)
They got married in Italy, on Lake Como, at Villa Aura del Lago.
This trip around of the world in one day brought in front of my lenses and in front of my eyes, a mix of cultures, traditions and colours truly unique and unrepeatable.
This is the marriage of Leila and Gaspare.
In this wedding there was everything, the Catholic ceremony in a beautiful church overlooking the lake.
The Persian ceremony in the villa. I appreciated the lightness, the amused expressions of all the women who actively participated.
Traditional dances, even the cutting of the cake was unique.
Just a few shots of a dense day and I will not forget.
P.S .: BTW Gaspare and his mother speak perfect Italian. Besides being pleasant to be able to speak with them in my mother language, this fact has contributed to create an even more unexpected situation.
