2020 has been quite a troubled year when it comes to weddings (and not only them...), you all know that. However, between postponements, cancellations (especially by foreigners), insecurities, reorganizations, there were someone who did not want to give up their marriage. And, to be honest, none of them regretted this kind of choice, at least among "our" couples.
Among these brave couples, the first were Serena and Leonardo, a splendidly matched couple with very clear ideas. She is an archaeologist, he is an engineer, both with many passions in common. The date they chose to get married was May 30th but they then decided to move the wedding exactly three months after that date, August 30th.
In hindsight, they made the right decision, although at first it was a bit painful due to some inevitable sacrifices. On August 30th in Rome, an early morning rain helped refresh a late summer day, only to be forgotten in the afternoon, leaving us with a clear sky, a memorable sunset and an evening with a splendid moon. During this day, which is somewhat atypical for everyone, there was no lack of emotions: those so strong that it is impossible to hold them back and which flow in the form of tears and the sweet ones, whispered with looks, caresses and gentle hugs.
Nima and Natasha's love story is one of those that goes beyond all kinds of cultural and linguistic barriers. Nima has Persian origins, while Natasha is English; and it is precisely in the UK that their lives became intertwined so as not to separate anymore.
During our first meeting we always ask couples to describe their marriage. The adjective most often used is "simple". In my opinion in these cases the couple gives much more importance to the ceremony rather than every other thing: even if the design, the flowers, the cooking, the celebrations will be organized with quality and in a workmanlike manner, in the eyes of the couple they are "simple" only for the fact that they represent the frame of the wedding, while the part that really matters is another, the spiritual one.
Simona and Andrea wedding is no exception: it was a "simple" but intense marriage. Having the opportunity to celebrate the civil ceremony at venue, they have chosen to get ready in two rooms of La Torretta, a well-kept wedding venue surrounded by greenery near Rome.
Since I like to keep sober the Gallery section of the website and, at the same time, not missing the opportunity to show my other works, I decided to publish some wedding photo shoots here on our blog. However, I am fascinated by the idea of giving You a narrative of a different type than the Gallery: not a complete story of about 100 photos, but a sort of wedding highlights: the day of the wedding told by only 20 photos, not one more, not one less. Is it a good idea? Who knows, in the meantime I'm enjoying that, which is the best thing about my job!
