Castle of Montecavallo Wedding – Biella Giulia and Giacomo, July 7th 2017
I write quietly from a café in Piazza San Fedele, Milan, behind the gallery.
Huge windows show me what’s going on out there. Two traffic wardens get bored, a teenager leaning on the wall was listens to music with his new, cumbersome but brand new, Beats. A very young couple in the background, silent.
The sun of this incredible Italian October warms the “walking distracted” tourists.
No music in the coffee shop.
I also put my headphones and Colin Hay’s Beautiful World starts playing.
My eyes go out again, now I see a couple around 65 years old, sitting on a bench right in front of me, she embraces him from behind and kisses his cheek.
Then he turns to her and they kisses again. They look around a bit embarrassed, laughing.
I don’ t photograph them but I resume writing.
and one day comes the wedding that makes you realise you’re really in the right place at the right time.
Everything is natural, everything happens by following a schedule that can’t be written but is the only track to follow.
Once again I am here to tell a story, two people, a party and maybe even a bit of what has been before.
Everything goes smoothly.
It could be because Giulia and Giacomo have a beautiful little baby like me, or because they took in the right mood this day, the group of friends, the magic location …
It could be because it was actually a great wedding, marking a point this summer 2017, where I felt free.
After so many weddings, I am still excited. I love it more and more and every time it’s different, like my spouses.
Every time I start from scratch, I look at them as old friends, so I can take more intimate pictures.
Close to them.
Here is the marriage of Giulia and Giacomo, they married in Biella at Castello di Montecavallo.
An incredibly fascinating place, enriched by the floral design of White Pepper Studio. Cristina, Lena, Camilla, Christian and all the team.
White Pepper’s you have created the magic, thank you!
