We spent two wonderful days with Annika & Alexander. A lot of friends came from Germany to Mombaruzzo (Monferrato – Piedmont) to join the party. Traditionally, La Villa Hotel is the favourite location of foreign couples dreaming of an “Italian wedding weekend”.
Annika and Alexander are a lovely couple, you can immediately see it: together they are so beautiful, tender and sweet; they engaged this special event with their radiant smiles, that was a marriage full of emotions!
First ceremony in Mombaruzzo
On the first of May they got married with civil ceremony. That was the perfect start of a long party, with closest friends and relatives. So, here come the hugs, then the toasts, then a joyful dinner with pizza. Of course, guests appreciated the most typical Italian food!
Second ceremony in Fontanile
The day after, what a sunny day! Spring in Monferrato is always an explosion of colors.
Many other guests arrived, while A&A were preparing for Protestant ceremony, celebrated in Saint John’s Church, in Fontanile. The exchange of rings was a touching moment, finally A&A became bride and groom! A white Fiat Cinquecento took the newlyweds away and brought them back to La Villa Hotel.
Time to party!
The party started with a dinner full of toasts, and carried on with music, dance, kisses!
It’s always exciting to photograph foreign couples, it’s a mission of great responsibility, too. It was a pleasure to work with Annika and Alexander, because they know how to keep you at ease, and it was not by chance that all the guests spent these two days in a very cheerful mood. Obviously, it wasn’t easy for us to guess the meaning of several speeches in German language… but take a look at the photos: that was a wedding full of fun and Joy, no doubt about it!!!
