Ginevra & Riccardo

In a location that is reborn in all its beauty, here comes the first wedding. Castello Casalborgone has really returned to its former glory!

I am happy to photograph the first wedding in this venue in Monferrato, one of the most beautiful castles in Italy, which has now been completely renovated and is perfect for setting ceremonies and receptions. A great pleasure to photograph the newlyweds – Ginevra and Riccardo – in this exceptional setting.

Ceremony in the courtyard of the Castle

The love story of Ginevra and Riccardo was born where they really didn’t expect it.

She is from Alba, he from Turin. They grow up, study and live in the same zone, they attend the same university, but it is not in Italy that they know each other.

Their destinies cross in London, a few years later, where they meet by chance in a vernissage. Their story continues, but despite the distance from home they always remain linked to Italy, and Geneva’s dream is to return to Italy to get married in an exceptional location.

So here they are! They prepare in the courtly rooms of the castle, with best men and bridesmaids… and then they rejoin in front of the altar, in the shade of the trees of the castle garden, and pronounce the great Yes.

Wedding reception in the halls of Castello Casalborgone

The reception is an opportunity to discover the beautiful rooms of the Castle, and enjoy lunch prepared by the hotel’s restaurant.

A special day, of joy and emotions, around two newlyweds and their marriage: how long we missed an event like this!

The afternoon takes place both indoors and outdoors, to fully experience the bright June sun. Finally, Ginevra and Riccardo greet us by running away in a carriage, leaving us sweet memories of a wonderful summer wedding!

Sarah & David

Sarah and David’s wedding is a fairy tale! Their Destination Wedding in Italy is at the Castello di Bibbione, in the heart of Tuscany.

Thanks to Best Wedding Italy and the wedding planner Claudia who has done an excellent job.

It is a great pleasure to show these photos… and the video trailer!

Wedding in Tuscany at Bibbione Castle

Tuscany is the place for a dream wedding, in an enchanting place, with exceptional landscapes. These hills are perfect places for Destination Weddings, to spend a unique experience in an exceptional location.

Sarah and David come from England to get married at Bibbione Castle, a place I know well and I am happy to return to!

The atmosphere is a beauty from the first moments of the day. It begins immediately with the dives in the pool of the friends. The bride prepares and wears the dress in the rooms of the Castle, and is very ready for her arrival at the altar, wide open on the spectacular panorama of the Chianti hills. Here Sarah and David say the magic YES and join in marriage.

The reception begins with an aperitif – the excellent catering is provided by Tuscanexcelsia – and with many toasts to celebrate the bride and groom. The arrangements are perfectly made by Claudia of Best Wedding Italy and in some photos we show you her work in detail. Furthermore, with some aerial photos we give you a glimpse of the beauty of Bibbione Castle.

Sarah and David are a fantastic couple, and friends dedicate to them toasts, speeches, games… and finally a great evening of dancing continues this event with music and fun. The #harveyxmumford wedding remains in the memories of all those present as an exceptional event, and these images want to keep the emotion intact forever!

Maicy & Marco

Maicy & Marco’s wedding in Turin: he from Turin, she from the United States, it is a wonderful story that begins in the USA, where their love grows, and today they are ready for the big event that we show in the photos. There is also the video trailer:

A big thank to Simmi Floral & Event Design for excellent floral arrangements. We always love the floral and bouquet design of Camilla and Simmi staff and we are happy to work today in scenarios embellished by her touch.

Wedding in Turin in the Church of Maria Madre dei Giovani

The first photos tell the moments of the preparations of the bride and the groom, helped by their respective parents. Together with the groom there are also the best men Luca, Edoardo, Andrea, Andriu. Together with the bride, the bridesmaids in the very elegant red dresses: Ali, Laurell, Fargol, Amanda.

And so we can say that Turin and Boston meet in the Church of Maria Madre dei Giovani, inside the headquarters of the Arsenale della Pace, for the celebration of Maicy & Marco’s wedding. There is always a special atmosphere in an “international” wedding like this, where the opposite corners of the world meet. And it is a beauty to photograph the great Yes of the couple, the soap bubbles at the exit… and then we continue with many portraits in the Arsenale della Pace.

Wedding reception in Vigna Chinet, Turin

An ideal place to celebrate a wedding in Turin is certainly the hill overlooking the city: the location of the reception is Vigna Chinet. A very popular restaurant in Turin, which becomes even more beautiful thanks to the arrangements by Camilla di Simmi Weddings, both outside – where the aperitif is set – and in the halls – where we enter for dinner.

And then everything is ready for the party: the toasts, the speeches, the dance, a joyful evening dedicated to this beautiful couple: Maicy & Marco.

Roisin & Andrew

Roisin & Andrew: a fantastic Irish couple who brings in Italy the dances, the joy, the passion for toast, the ability in speech and all the joyful “wedding mood” typical of their land. Our Italy returns with a bright sunny day, and with an exceptional scenario: Lake Maggiore! More precisely, we are in Lido di Angera, on the Lombard shores of the Lake: the whole event is set here and it is a pleasure to photograph their destination wedding in Italy.

Thanks to Filo Lido Eventi for floral arrangements!

Destination wedding in Italy: the outdoor ceremony

Photos of the day begin with the bride’s preparations. While Roisin wears the dress, the father inaugurates the toasts: together they get on the boat to head to Hotel Lido di Angera. What a sight to see the bride coming to the wedding location!

The music of ukulele, keyboard and voice is preparing to accompany the great moment of Roisin & Andrew, who join in marriage with an outdoor ceremony, in a very beautiful place because we are really just a few meters from the shore of the Lake.

In this same place, in a few minutes, everything is ready for reception.

Wedding reception at the Hotel Lido di Angera

At the Hotel Lido di Angera, for the reception of Roisin & Andrew, there is an abundant aperitif and then a nice dinner in the rooms of the location. A dinner that – as in Anglo-Saxon traditions – becomes very joyful when the speeches of friends start. In addition to all this, Free Unplugged‘s excellent music (which we thank) makes the atmosphere wonderful.

Some evening portraits are what it takes to give Roisin & Andrew lots of photos set during the most “romantic” hour on Lake Maggiore. Shortly after we give them back to the warmth of friends: the dances are an explosion of fun, and we see it in many images of this photogallery, full of joy and life. This party is the best way to live the wonderful Roisin & Andrew’s destination wedding in Italy!
