An Italian Wedding


I have spent the past twelve months admiring wedding photography blogs, creating wedding-related boards on Pinterest and peeking at photos of strangers tying the knot. Now it is my turn to share a “wedding photostory” and become the subject of attention! Luckily, I am sharing all this attention with my beautiful husband, Sandy! :)

So much work has gone into making this day possible: from myself, my husband, my parents, my bridesmaids and many other people who have helped us to make our wedding day beautiful and unforgettable.

I knew that Francesca and Tommaso of Studio Magenta would do an amazing work and so I am very pleased to share their photos with you. They have been professional and helpful before, during and after the wedding day. It’s great to work with someone you know you can trust and rely on.

So here’s my wedding photostory, hope you will like it! (I have kept out the photos of food, I will share them in a separate post soon!)

      Thank you Regula! Your Save The Date cards were perfect and everybody loved them.
      The dress was tailor-made with Italian fabrics, but as an inspiration I used the Candy Anthony dresses! :)

    This is wonderful! :) and I just discovered that the make-up artist is the wife of my old Erasmus friend (and amazing photographer) Davide Crocetti! It’s a small small world…
    Wish you guys all the best and I hope you’re enjoying my little wedding present x

      No way!!! Monica is a friend and she traveled from Milan to Rome for a day just to be my make-up artist! :) I haven’t met Davide in person, but I have seen the photos of their beautiful wedding!

    Glad to see that the term ‘photostory’ starts going around :)
    The photos are gorgeous and you are beautiful!

  • Reply Lyra 11/10/2012 at 15:59

    Che dire? Le foto, l’atmosfera, gli sposi, le testimoni, i sorrisi, le trovate originali… è tutto bellissimo e permeato di una grande allegria e serenità… Chissà sarà la postproduzione soltanto? XD Io non credo ovviamente!
    Ancora un milione di congratulazioni, auguri di tutto cuore!
    Buon cammino a voi e spero di avere presto occasione di rivederci!
    .(..E restiamo in attesa della terza e ultima parte di questi festeggiamenti matrimoniali che sarà sicuramente la più suggestiva, fotograficamente parlando… ^_^)
