“The color of springtime is in the flowers; the color of winter is in the imagination.”
Italian Romantic Winter Wedding
Thank you to Francesca and Thomas for having chosen me as their photographer for their Italian romantic winter wedding around the Rimini area!
Francesca and Thomas, a sweet couple indeed, are the symbol of a slowly growing love that bloomed in an unexpected December spring, as they married in wintertime, thus warming with their tenderness the hearts of all their families and friends!
The couple married in the oldest church in the Rimini area, the Byzantine “pieve” of San Michele Arcangelo, at Sant ‘Arcangelo di Romagna, a beautiful church dating back to the sixth century, a splendid jewel in its simplicity. “From the very first moment we entered the little church, we were both impressed by its simplicity, beauty and richness, even though there was nothing in it: all made of stones with only one big wooden crucifix hanging …” said the bride full of enthusiasm! Francesca and Thomas gave a touch of elegance to the ceremony thanks to the floral decorations of the florists Paolo and Antonio Fontana from Pesaro and the music played by Sauro Nicoletti while the celebrant Don Gabriele Belacchi cheered them by telling everybody about their love story during the homily, since their relationship has been a long and incredible journey!
As ideal place to welcome friends and relatives, bride and groom chose the prestigious Villa Malatesta in Poggio Berni, in the province of Rimini. Surrounded by a green garden and with a splendid panoramic view, it was the perfect place not only for the refined and welcoming ambience and for the great cuisine but also for the presence, in its beautiful garden, of two sails, the perfect symbol of their great and common passion for the sea and the sail.
The warm ambiences of the villa were a warm hug to end the day in the best way!
Francesca wanted her friend Simona Ambrogi to take care of her bridal makeup and Marco Corradorini as her trusted hairdresser!
If I should summarize this beautiful day in key words, I would say: love, warmth, complicity, elegance, simplicity and many emotions that I tried to captured in my shots to make them eternal!
Thanks again to Francesca and Thomas for having chosen me as their photographer for their Italian romantic winter wedding and for their availability to be remembered in my blog.
