Every time I photograph a wedding in Langhe I feel a great amazement. By now I know these villages, roads and hills perfectly… yet there is always something that surprises me, conquers me, and that challenges me to take more beautiful and more emotionally charged photos. The photos you see are the ones that tell the wedding of Simona and Joshua, a wonderful day at the Agriturismo La Torricella in Monforte d’Alba!
Religious ceremony in the cellar of the location
Simona and Joshua meet for the first time in London, but it is Italy that they choose as their wedding venue. There is no better scenery than the Unesco Heritage hills of Langhe, where La Torricella is one of the most popular locations.
The bride wears the dress with the help of her mother and sister. The groom prepares together with his friends. The ceremony can begin: Simona & Joshua get married with a Protestant religious rite, in the cellar of the location, as there are a few drops of rain outside.
But soon after, the sky opens, the sun shines, and an exceptional day of celebration begins!
Outdoor wedding reception at the Agriturismo La Torricella
The Agriturismo La Torricella – as the connoisseurs of the Langhe know well – has an incomparable panoramic position that offers a spectacular view of the hills. The clear and clean air after the rain gives us a unique sunset. It is the perfect situation for beautiful portraits of the newlyweds.
And then I must say that this location always manages to convey a warm “home” atmosphere. A house with excellent wines, whose barrels were the setting for the ceremony in the cellar.
The outdoor dinner begins, which is the prelude to a wonderful evening, with games, toasts, the throwing of the bouquet, the cutting of the cake, and a lot of fun and dance to continue celebrating the fantastic wedding of Simona & Joshua!
