A Proposal in Rome at Colosseum

Photos and video of João's marriage proposal to Carolina

We had the honor of telling in pictures João's proposal in Rome to Carolina, a Portuguese couple who, in September, visited Rome.
Their story begun 9 years ago, when they fell in love at first sight by attending classes at the same University, just like in a movie!
They are both very sweet and tender and have a very strong passion in common, that of travel. And this was precisely the reason that led João to choose the wedding proposal at the Colosseum!

Before the proposal in Rome, we had an intense exchange of e-mails with João: you know how much we care about establishing a relationship with our clients that goes beyond the professional one, and besides he was very anxious about the organization of the surprise.
We therefore tried to reassure him by helping and supporting him in the smallest details: we chose together the right place and a time that would allow us to take more photographs after the proposal itself; we also established how to make the surprise go perfectly, so that Carolina did not suspect anything; we even exchanged messages until the last moment (thanks, technology!) and we even managed to give him advice on their outfit!

Carolina's reaction was touching: her immense love for João found its way through her eyes and he held her into her protective arms. João himself was speechless and did not stop hug and caressing her.
Here is the story of our afternoon together, a show that has thrilled us and that will continue to do so every time we look at the photographs and the video, which we have really created with our hearts.

A Wedding in an italian castle

Angela, Pasquale, and the magic of Harry Potter

The wedding season has finally started again and this year, both we and our couples, have looked forward to it like never before!

Angela and Pasquale are the first amazing couple! They organized a wedding in an italian castle not far from Rome, in the city of Vicovaro, in the Cenci Bolognetti Castle. A place steeped in history, built in the thirteenth century and then enlarged and renovated in the eighteenth century: the mixture of styles and genres is now visible both in the structure and in the interiors, especially in some completely frescoed large rooms.
The main reason they chose to get married in a castle is their immense passion for the Harry Potter saga, which obviously became the main theme of the whole event!

The atmospheres of the large halls, with the thin but powerful beams of light that make their way through the narrow windows, the winding passages and finally the wooded surroundings, can only recall some glimpses of the imagination of Hogwarts. Close the circle an elegant setting and the gem of the seating table with the tables named after some chapters of the saga.

The name of the newlyweds' table can only be The Unbreakable Vow: for the few who do not know it, it is a type of binding magical contract cast between two wizards. They have to shake their right hands, in the presence of a witness who summons the spell. It makes their bond indissoluble, until death do them part... Isn't it brilliant?

Speaking of unbreakable vows, Angela and Pasquale were keen to celebrate a religious ceremony and therefore chose the Church of San Pietro Apostolo, adjacent to the Cenci Bolognetti Castle.

How to plan a Wedding on the Beach

Ideas, inspirations and practical advice to make your wedding by the sea happen!

Dopo il successo riscontrato dall'articolo precedente su come organizzare un matrimonio nel bosco, ho pensato di approfondire l'argomento dei matrimoni legati a luoghi ben specifici, in questo caso tratto del matrimonio in spiaggia!

Quando quasi 10 anni fa io e mia moglie ci siamo sposati, avremmo tanto voluto organizzare un matrimonio in spiaggia, ma io ancora non ero un fotografo di matrimoni e lei ancora non era una Wedding Designer: avemmo molte difficoltà nel cercare di organizzare un matrimonio del genere a Roma, quindi ripiegammo sul lago e trovammo la soluzione giusta per noi a Trevignano Romano.

Col senno di poi, avremmo potuto organizzarlo anche sul mare, ma non avevamo le conoscenze opportune per farlo: adesso le cose sono cambiate, lavoriamo da tanti anni nel settore e possiamo anche permetterci di aiutarvi! Ovviamente tutti i miei consigli relativi all'allestimento sono frutto non solo della mia esperienza lavorativa, ma anche delle conoscenze in materia di mia moglie, Mary de La Sposa degli Alberi.

After the success of the previous article on how to plan a wedding in the woods, I thought it would be a good idea to investigate the topic of weddings set into specific environments, in this case I'm writing about the Wedding on the Beach!

When my wife Mary and I got married nearly 10 years ago, we wanted to plan a Wedding on the Beach, but I wasn't a Wedding Photographer and she wasn't a Wedding Designer: we had a lot of difficulties trying to organize such a wedding here in Rome, so we fell back on Bracciano lake and found the right solution for us in the graceful city of Trevignano Romano.

In hindsight, we could also have organized it on the sea, but we didn't have the necessary knowledge to do it: now things have changed, we have been working in the industry for many years and we can even afford to help you! Obviously all my advice on the set-up is the result not only of my work experience, but also of my wife's knowledge on the subject.
