Like a Fairytale An ancient italian Convent surronded by a forest it’s perfect for a dreamy, romantic wedding.

REAL WEDDING/ Gianluca&Gabriella Convento dell’Annunciata, Medole September 2016





A floral crown, an ethereal gown, a small intimate church in the countryside. Simply perfection! Gianluca and Gabriella celebrated their love in a warm September day surronded by their families and closest friends. After the ceremony, a beautiful imperial table setted in the wood of the ancient Convento dell’Annunciata welcomed the newlyweds under a ceiling of lights.








The lights were the leitmotiv of the celebration, from the spectacular dinner into the wood to the party in the courtyard and the effect was simply amazing. The decoration of the stunning imperial table was setting by I fiori di San Lorenzo with a pink pastel palette and little jars.




Summertime happiness An amazing barefoot bride and a ceremony on the beach is a perfect summertime combo. EDITORIAL / June, 2016




Benedetta from I fiori di San Lorenzo and I wanted to create something special, a serie of photos of beach wedding inspiration settings and a bride on the beach. But where we live there isn’t seasides, so we decided to create something unique by the river Po, in Mantova. River Po is also called ‘il grande Fiume’ / the big river because it’s the longest river of Italy. We spent an entire morning in search of the right location, scouting places because usually the shore of the river is full of rocks, while we were looking for a white sand beach. We definitely found it in San Benedetto Po, a little town nearby Mantova city. Then we decided to involve the beautiful Cristina, (she’s from Brazil, a perfect exotic bride) with her husband Marcello and their dog Gas. To build up a great team of talented people we contacted Luca Becchi from Luca Becchi Lab for the arrangements and Monica Chicconi for make up. Monica did a great work on Cristina’s make up enhancing her beautiful ebony skin with a touch of gold. Cristina was amazing in her wedding dress! We waited for the sunset and the light was incredible. So getting married on Fiume Po is definitely possible and we hope to be an inspiration for the brides of the future.


We were inspired by the summertime sunsets, golden hour with a little but decisive touch of color. The table was setting by Luca with boho-inspired mis-en-place and decorated by Benedetta with light pink flowers. They arranged a ceremony corner with wild wood, while the cake corner was placed beside two beach chairs.

Romantic charme The beautiful italian hills is the perfect background for a dreamy out-of-time destination wedding. DESTINATION WEDDING/ Stephen&Ekaterina Relais la Magioca, Verona September, 2016




When a Russian bride marries a German groom in a rustic Casale in Italy, the result is nothing short of magical. Ekaterina and Stefan said “I do� at Relais la Magioca in Verona, where they balanced chic sophisticated wedding customs with a rustic attitude true to the Italian atmosphere. Ekaterina looked stunning in her lace gown and the bouquet and table decorations were characterized by the presence of olive leaves. The result is something beautiful!







Happily Ever After

From LA to Italy, celebrating the Love surronded by the beauty majestic of ancientness. DESTINATION WEDDING/ Jeremy and Evy Villa Zambonina, Verona June 2016


From Los Angeles the couple planned a chic, elegant destination wedding for their friends and family to celebrate their new journey. Jeremy and Evy’s celebration is a great example of family love. When I met Evy in the amazing Villa Zambonina few days before the ceremony she told me that they planned not only their destination wedding in Italy, they also planned a beautiful tour of the most amazing places in Veneto with their guests during the days before. Everything was perfectly setted, the only out-of-control thing was the weather that it was a little bit rainy in Verona during those days. Luckily, on the wedding day it was really cloudy and it was about to rain sometimes, but in the end the sky just opened giving us the most beautiful sunset of the summer. Evy’s father Ted officiated the ceremony in front of the amazing Villa and the atmosphere all around was magical and full of beauty. Every time that I shoot a destination wedding in my country it’s incredible for me to consider that love is the same in every part of the world. Even if bride and groom come from the other side of the ocean I see the same kind of love between them and their family, this is my favorite things about my work.

Wild Opulence

Celebrating the love with an unique style mixing the Italian charm and the wildness of nature. EDITORIAL Casino di Venere, Verona October, 2016




It’s incredible to think that beautiful locations like Casino di Venere exist. And this Greek couple know it so well. Just picture it: an out-of-time place in the heart of Verona as background to celebrate your wedding anniversary. How magical could it be to renewal your vows in front of a beautiful view from above the city? A touch of marsala red and a wild stunning bouquet to add a precious feeling to all. Just perfection!





White peonies and marsala red mixed up with eucalyptus and wild green. A touch of gold to complete the table setting with precious candlesticks as centerpiece.

Time is very slow for those who wait. Very fast for those who are scared. Very long for those who lament. Very short for those who celebrate. But for those who love, time is eternal.

-W. Shakespare
