Sara and Sandra, expert wedding planners founders of Ilbiancoeilrosa brand, had the honor of organizing the wedding of Hanna and Gavin. For my part, I can not say I got to know well the bride, indeed, I was able to meet her only once a long time before the big day.
The wedding day was a constant coming and going from one place to another one to follow the preparation of the couple. Along with Loredana, my trusty assistant, I was firstly in a B&Bs in Lucca, in the historical center with a breathtaking view of the Basilica of St. Michael, and after in Forestaria, in a farmhouse on the magical hills of Lucca, where waiting for me there was the bride Hanna. In these two places I photographed the magical moments that precede the marriage, fear and joy, anxiety and trepidation. After the draft of the preparation, I left there Loredana with Hanna to allow it to finish the last steps, while I was driving to Orsetti Palace to create some portraits of Gavin with his son and the best man. The realization that this was an important event for me from a professional perspective allowed me to commit the maximum, regardless of the temperature, the afa and fatigue. So, at Orsetti Palace I continued the work with an accurate reportage of the last moments before the entrance of the bride. Entrance, to be honest, was triumphant, full of wonder and emotion.
The ceremony at the town hall was simple but charming, perfect to seal the love between Hanna and Gavin, and continued in the elegant Green Room of the palace reserved for them. Here, tired and exhausted from the heat, I arrived dripping with sweat like never before: even the pants in frescolana were wet! Then the party continued naturally, as in a dream, surrounded by much wine, cocktails and spritz, so much joy and more pleasant temperatures as well as we drew to a conclusion.
Just before kick off to dinner, I managed to steal just five minutes to the spouses for the traditional photos posing, preferring to continue with a reportage to capture what happened after: dinner, speeches, cake cutting and dancing. All it imprinted forever without sacrificing naturalness and spontaneity.
I’m really honored of the trust that the couple Hanna and Gavin have placed in me, recognizing the true value of the service that I offer and always granting me great willingness and collaboration. The result has been possible thanks to them.
