“Look into your heart and you’ll find love, love, love, love.
Listen to the music of the moment, people dance and sing, we’re just one big family
And it’s our God-forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved.”
(Jason Mraz, I’m yours)
Le Marche Wedding
I would like to thank the sweet Marzia and Valentino for choosing me as their documentary Italian wedding photographer in Le Marche region.
Marzia and Valentino are incredible and almost opposite bridal couple!
Valentino loves nature, to ride his motorbike, photography, and considers himself as “an early bird” but totally disorganized because he likes to live the moment without too much planning. He prefers salty food and he loves watching documentaries on the TV.
Marzia, on the other side, loves to travel, going shopping, sweet food, and reality shows on the TV. She is a sleepyhead but, unlike her husband, she loves to be super organized and needs to plan every detail in order to feel at peace with herself. While Valentino is a very stable type, Marzia’s mood changes every half an hour!
Well, despite the differences, they actually are in a strong 12-year-old relationship, a symbol of true reconciliation of opposites!
This wedding conveyed me a lot of emotions and special moments and I’ve chosen to use a lot of black and white in my postproduction just to give a special emphasis to all these precious moments!
By looking at their pictures, you will see a real creative wedding reportage and a lot of precious moments of pure romance and complicity, visible in the many smiles I captured in almost every shot, in the hugs and tenderness of the couple, and in the affection, their family and friends extended all around.
Marzia and Valentino got married in the beautiful Collegiata of Saint Lucia in Montefiore dell’Aso in the province of Ascoli Piceno, an ancient church dedicated to Saint Lucia, the patron saint of the village. Within this ancient church, it is well preserved a reliquary of 1700 with the exposed finger of the saint. This church hosts a wooden choir and a font of value, as well as some frescoes by Luigi Fontana and an ancient portal.
For the wedding reception, the bride and groom chose the prestigious Villa Lattanzi, in Torre di Palme, in the province of Fermo. Immersed in wood but not far from the sea, this old mansion is a refined location, with beautiful furnishings and a restaurant offering delicious, great quality dishes. Beautiful even the legendary Cave of the Lovers, which can be accessed through a green path and tied to a famous and ancient love legend in the area … Villa Lattanzi is definitely a dream setting for a truly romantic wedding!
Marzia, for her special day, chose a wedding dress by Rosa Clarà, bought in the Rossana Nicolai Boutique in Porto San Giorgio and she wore Loriblu wedding shoes. Valentino instead chose a wedding suit by Lanvin, from the boutique Coltorti of Jesi.
Floral arrangements were prepared by the floral stylist Daniela Ricci, while the bridal make-up artist was Fiorella Castelli, from Centro Estetica Integrata.
For this fairytale wedding, the music was also a must! The band Sosta Vietata from Teramo, with the beautiful voice of the famous Nicoletta Dale, has welcomed children and adults with funk and blues music.
Thanks again to Marzia and Valentino for choosing me as their documentary Italian wedding photographer in the Marche region, Italy, and for their enthusiasm to be remembered in my blog!
Best wishes guys!
