Being a wedding photographer in Italy is like winning the lottery, you get to shoot and discover beautiful places you wouldn’t know otherwise. Raul and Valeria tied the knot in a beautiful castle by the sea in Santa Marinella, a few kilometers outside Rome, they chose to have an intimate ceremony outside, it was a warm afternoon and the light was just perfect.
WHEN I STEPPED INSIDE I WAS SURPRISED BY THE INCREDIBLY HIGH PALM TREE
and the beauty of all the details. Daniela Luchetti did an Amazing job with the flowers I loved how simple yet perfect it all looked! The intimacy of the place was something I was not expecting because you usually think of a castle as a big and maybe a little bit cold place, but this was not the case! When I arrived only a few people were there, I like to get on the location in advance so I can shoot all the details before everyone else arrives!
When Raul and all the family arrived I felt surrounded by pure happiness, joy, but most of all love from every single person there.
Maybe what I loved the most was shooting their gorgeous children… I mean look at them!! <3
I’ve to admit the ceremony was so emotional I was about to cry more than once, I love when it’s a friend who marries you because of all the anecdote and the unique connection he has with you.
The party was crazy fun and it was lit by a magical moonlight!
Scroll all the way down to see how Magical it was!
Grazie Raul and Valeria for making me feel part of your family!
Location: Castello Odescalchi, Santa Marinella.
