wedding lucca | Michele + Simona
My friend/ partner/ right arm has finally tied the knot with his “Ami”, after years as boyfriend and girlfriend.
Michele wanted me as a guest, for this reason he has decided to book for the photographic service that beautiful soul of Beatrice Speranza, recognized artist and wonderful photographer. I know Beatrice for quite some time but I’ve never had the chance to see here working nor I’ve worked with her in the past, so this made me very happy.
I was asked to take some pictures of his preparation and to enjoy at its fullest the day, I’ve asked Beatrice to take some pictures during the wedding. As you know some habits die hard, to participate to a wedding to me is synonymous of photographing…
When I had the authorization of the official photographer I took well care of her working bag as well as mine (her kindness had to be rewarded and as I see things, with a useful service), chauffeuring around Lucca the couple and the photographer taking them for an aperitif before getting back on the car to reach the restaurant “Serendepico” of Borgonuovo.
The few photos I have taken were all done with my new jewel, the incredible optic Nikon 35 f/1.4, always working with wide aperture to whip the incredible blur of this lens, always with natural light, without using the flash light as I usually do.
At the “Relais del lago” we celebrated with the newlyweds cheering at the buffet table with a great “classic method” that took away the thirst while we waited for dinner.
Outside, in front of the main building of the Relais was set up an incredible unique table for all the guests. The excellent kitchen and the wonderful wine well accompanied the happiness of celebrating all together such a waited event.
The decors in country- chic inspiration were staged by “Ilbiancoeilrosa” event’s workshop from Lucca (www.ilbiancoeilrosa.it).
Good luck to my dear friends for their life together and have a good trip.
I thank Beatrice’s assistant for the shot of me and Michele in front of Orsetti Palace.
