Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life”
(Summer of 69, Bryan Adams)
Villa Pocci Wedding Venue
Thank you Simona and Francesco for choosing me as your Rome wedding photographer.
I had the opportunity to discover and rediscover with them the beautiful Lazio region!
Simona and Francesco inspired me the feeling of a very passionate and joyful wedding couple, with a keen understanding of the beautiful emotions in life!
After the wedding ceremony, which was held in the beautiful church of Santa Maria della Stella, at Albano, not far from Rome, the bride and groom’s friends prepared a quick celebration outside the church: the bride burst into tears in front of her beloved truck Volkswagen T1, a symbol of hippie freedom and joy of life, in the true spirit of the ’70s: “peace & love” for everybody! It ‘was really nice and funny …
Another moving moment was Simona reading her love letter for Francesco: it was a letter in simple words but so touching that around me almost everybody had a handkerchief in their hands!
Simona, with a beautiful make-up by Valentina Genovese, from Tiarè Aesthetics, wore a beautiful wedding dress by Pronovias, Arona style, purchased in the wedding boutique Carnevali Spose. At her feet, our beautiful Cinderella had Victoria Delef’s wedding shoes.
Francesco instead preferred the Italian Pollini shoes and a suit from Sartoria Rossi: a total Italian look and Italian elegance for our groom!
Beautiful Ariccia was the shooting location we chose: with its lovely views, I found many nice corners to immortalize my bride and groom!
Relatives and friends were then welcomed at Villa Pocci, in Lake Albano, a beautiful lakeside villa close to Castelgandolfo which offers an exclusive setting and refined dishes with great attention to details. Thanks to its famous and award-winning wedding chef Fabio Mancuso, guests can enjoy uncommon recipes with high emotional involvement.
The musical entertainment was performed by Musicalmente Roma, by Roberta Tassetti, wedding planner of this romantic event was Federica Marzella from “Felici e Contenti”.
The floral decors were wonderfully arranged by Massimo Castellacci, from Albano Laziale.
Thanks again to Simona and Francesco for choosing me as their wedding photographer in the Lazio region and for the wonderful day we spent together! Many thanks also for their availability to be remembered in my blog!
