Nestled in the picturesque countryside of Rome, the Castello di Torre in Pietra set the scene for the enchanting wedding of Claudette and Adriano. This remarkable fortress, with origins dating back to the medieval era, showcases the architectural grandeur of Italy’s storied past.

Claudette, the bride, was a vision of refined beauty.

The ceremony took place in the castle’s chapel, adorned with flowers and elegant decorations. The moment they were pronounced husband and wife, the crowd erupted in applause and cheers, celebrating the beginning of their new life together.

Long tables were set up under the shade of ancient trees, adorned with white and yellow flowers. The feast was a delightful spread of traditional Italian dishes, featuring fresh local ingredients and flavors that celebrated the couple’s shared love for food.

The joyous spirit of the occasion was elevated by the lively tunes of popular music that filled the air. A talented local band played a mix of popular Italian hits, encouraging everyone to get up and dance. The garden was soon transformed into an open-air dance floor, where guests of all ages twirled and swayed, their laughter echoing through the castle grounds.

As the sun began to set, guests were invited into one of the castle’s most exquisite rooms for the traditional Campagne Tower. This room, adorned with stunning frescoes, provided a breathtaking backdrop for the evening’s sweet finale. The intricate details of the frescoes, combined with the soft glow of candlelight, created an ambiance of timeless elegance. 

Claudette and Adriano’s wedding was not just a ceremony; it was a celebration of love, family, and the enchanting allure of the Italian countryside.

FAQ

Ready to answer to all of your questions and needs

My approach to weddings is a mix of  a photo-journalistic one, also known as reportage, with a twist for editorial and elegant images. I love spontanous shots and I work in a very unobtrusive way, people normaly don’t realize when I am taking photos of them.

I am based in Italy but I am available to travel anywhere.

Yes, I do edit my photos. I believe the editing is a very important part of my job, it’s the signature of my work. However, I believe that postproduction should not twist the image but it should be limited to the colors, lights and contrast to keep a very natural look. 

Sure! You can request the quote by calling me or filling out the form.

The payment is divided in two parts:

  • 30% to lock the date in when you sign the contract.
  • 70% before the wedding day.

All images will be personally and individually edited to the highest standard and supplied in high resolution on an online private gallery.

Average amount of photos supplied between 500 – 800, depending on the type of the event.

I cover the entire event, from couples’ preparations until the end of reception. I generally stay until the cake cut/final dances.

 

Normally I send a few highlights a couple of days after the wedding and I deliver the entire gallery 60 days after the wedding date.
