Indian Wedding in Ravello
They were both about 70 year old, he was wearing casual shorts, white snikers, gray curly hair and shirtless walked hand in hand with his beautiful wife.
Not so young, I thinked, then I turned my head to the other hand, framing me clients.
I continued my work, smiling inside.
We are in Amalfi for a pre wedding photo service to J. and M. that in the afternoon, they were married in Ravello, Amalfi Coast.
About this marriage I can only tell some details, like the pictures that I will publish.
J and M are a shine couple that asked me to maintain their privacy and so I will do.
But I’ll tell you about the wonderful day I spent with them.
In the morning of August 27th, we went to Amalfi for a pre-wedding shooting. Amalfi is a stunning location.
Walking the beautiful streets, I seem to recognize even Steven Spielberg (the director!) walkng around, he noticed me just beacuse I was whit my big cameras, he must have thought I was a paparazzo, of course I didn’t photograph him and he went away quiet and relaxed .
Then, I read that in those days he was on the coast with his family.
Anyway the story I want to tell you happened during this shooting.
Walking near the port we met an aged couple about 70/75 years old, the grey curly hair man was holding the hand of his wife walking towards the sea.
You would see their love just from far.
J. wanted to take a picture with them, we became friends in one minute and they told us they were in love from 50 years like the day one, after a few funny anecdotes and a few bars we went on.
The beauty of my job is the unexpected events like this, the candor in telling us their feelings after so many years together hit us all, and especially J. and M. . On that day they would be married.
J. and M. were married in a civil ceremony in the gardens of the Principessa of Piemonte and then they had the dinner and the party at the Belmond Hotel Caruso, one of the most beautiful places in the world, the view from the terrace right on the coast, the aperitif among the olive trees, the long table that seems designed by an artist.
Everything was perfect, the party was intimate and funny .
At the end of the evening we moved to the pool where they danced traditional indian dances but also some romantic songs.
