Genesis & Robin

A love story that unites a girl and a boy from two opposite corners of the world (Ecuador and Holland): a novel should be written. And their wedding, so beautiful, set in Turin, deserves to be told: we do it with the photos in this gallery, and with the wedding video trailer below!

There is no need to know the thousands of different languages ​​that are spoken on this day to understand the atmosphere of the event. So much emotion during the wedding ceremony in the Church of San Carlo. And so much party and fun and great time in the reception at Villa Somis, on the Turin hillside.

Wedding ceremony in the Church of San Carlo, Turin

The raindrops that come down in the morning will soon give way to a bright sun that will illuminate all this summer wedding… until the starry night that will accompany the reception.

The ceremony is in a place that is probably the most elegant square in Turin: Piazza San Carlo. The Church of San Carlo is one of the two famous “Twin Churches” of Baroque architecture next to Via Roma: it is here that Genesis and Robin unite in marriage, between the emotion of the guests, and the magic of the music of a string quartet .

Soon after, it’s time for some portraits in the streets of the center, as the sun makes its way through the clouds, and for the bride and the groom it’s about to start a great evening with friends from all over the world!

Wedding reception at Villa Somis, Turin

Villa Somis is a wedding location that rises on the Turin hills: a few minutes by car to enjoy an incomparable view of the city and absolute serenity.

The dances begin immediately. And after dinner, the toasts, and the spectacular cutting of the cake with the sparkles lit by the guests… it’s time again to dance, all night. Two beautiful newlyweds, the most fascinating places in the city, many enthusiastic friends, a wonderful party… what do they say: “what else?”

Greetings Genesis and Robin, in all the languages ​​of the world!

Samantha & Edoardo

Samantha and Edoardo, from London, come to Italy to spend the beautiful day of their marriage. We are at Villa San Domenico, in the Asti countryside: the whole event is set in this location.

Wedding ceremony at Villa San Domenico, Asti

The rooms of the villa in ferment for the preparations of the bride and the groom. The bridesmaids in elegant purple dress, ready for the first toasts. The white dress ready to be worn by Samantha. The garden set up for the ceremony. The first notes of the musicians to create the right mood. The children who run and play waiting for the event. The emotion that rises to the sight of the bride coming…

After the ceremony, the launch of rice, and many smartphones that resume the spouses’ exit, ready to start the party!

Wedding reception at Villa San Domenico, Asti

What could be better than an abundant outdoor aperitif to start the reception? Even better when there’s a great band – Drivewheel – to accompany the evening with blues rock music. And it’s even nicer when there’s a sunset over the hills with fantastic light: the ideal setting to take some portraits of the bride and groom before starting dinner.

The dinner, in the internal hall of Villa San Domenico, is animated by the speech of the friends, who with much humor and emotion express their love for the couple.

The toasts continue, and the party continues with the cutting of the cake, and many dances to the rhythm of music throughout the evening. In these photos, all the beauty of the marriage in Italy of Samantha and Edoardo!

Lina & Pal Andre

A great pleasure for me to be the wedding photographer of this beautiful wedding in Langhe. Lina and Pal Andre are a Norwegian couple, and here are the photos of their destination wedding in Italy, in the Antico Borgo Monchiero location.

The event is organized by Extraordinary Weddings, a wedding planner agency specialized in destination weddings of foreign couples who get married in the Langhe. I know their work very well because I collaborated for many wedding photo shoots. Also this time I find an excellent coordination and preparation, by Michela Ribero, whom I thank!

Wedding ceremony in Antico Borgo Monchiero

Marriage begins with rain, but will continue with the sun, and finally under the Moon and the stars. Lina’s preparations are together with the beautiful bridesmaids, and a nice toast is the perfect way to start the day.

Pal Andre is waiting for his bride at the altar… and when she arrive, the ceremony begin. The texts of the bride and the groom’s promises are enclosed in a sealed wooden box to be kept forever. And after the ceremony, it is the right time to take some pictures of the bride and groom in the park, in the streets of the village, and on the famous big bench nearby.

Wedding reception in Antico Borgo Monchiero

Antico Borgo Monchiero is a wedding venue in Piedmont that offers all the comforts including the pool. Always a pleasure to photograph a wedding here, especially today, in an international situation!

Difficult for me to understand the many speeches of the guests, that speak in Norwegian, but very easy to understand the meaning: so much joy and affection for the love story of this couple.

After dinner, let’s go outside under the stars: we take portraits with aerial photography, and then there is the cutting the cake, the throwing the bouquet… and party and dance to the rhythm of music.

Best wishes to Lina and Pal Andre: with these photos they will keep a very very special memory of Italy!

Kristine & Cliff

The Destination Wedding in Italy of a British couple: here are the photos that show Kristine & Cliff’s wedding in Asti, in the location Relais Sant’Uffizio in Cioccaro Penango.

It’s nice to welcome a couple from London to these fantastic hills, a UNESCO heritage for the wine-growing landscapes. Photographing weddings in the Langhe and in the Monferrato area is always a satisfaction because it also means getting to know people from all over the world!

Wedding ceremony at the Relais Sant’Uffizio Asti

The first moments of the day are those of the preparations. Moments of waiting, of emotion, but also of jokes, laughter, sharing of an important event in the family. The groom and the bride wear clothes in two neighboring rooms. I pass from one room to another to document the most significant moments.

The ceremony is outdoors, in the park that is located in front of the entrance to the location. Many speeches animate the celebration that unites Kristine & Cliff in marriage. And now, after the great Yes, there is a great desire to celebrate!

And while friends are heading to the aperitif area, with the couple we take some photos in the gardens of the location.

Everybody is ready for the aperitif: very good and plentiful, with preparation is in the veranda. At the table then we continue with the toast and the speeches of the friends who with their words declare all their affection for the spouses.

Then the dances with the parents, and then the cut of the cake, and then again the dances … All set in the Relais Sant’Uffizio, one of the most renowned locations for wedding in Asti, more precisely in the municipality of Cioccaro Penango.

I am very happy that these spouses have chosen this scenario and this location to celebrate their choice of love, and to celebrate with many friends. Kristine and Cliff’s Destination Wedding in Italy was a fantastic event!
