Happy Monday everyone!
We had a very busy time last week, that’s why we only published one post, but this week we have something special for you!
The first blog post of the week is Christina’s and Andrea’s intimate destination wedding in Rome shared by Rossini Photography!
Christina is from the States, Andrea is Italian. They were planning a big, international wedding in the lake region, north of Italy. Then things must have become too complicated, because they decided to call off the big event and have instead a smaller and intimate wedding.
However, they still wanted their portraits taken as “bride and groom” and they planned a photo-shoot in Rome.
“To avoid the massive crowd of tourists and Romans that every Sunday of spring congests the city center – explains Claudia at Rossini Photography – we met at dawn in front of the Trevi Fountain”.
The bride was truly beautiful. She found a Finnish lady, Janet Helova, who did a great job with her hair and make-up at five in the morning. Her dress was extremely elegant, simple and modern, tailored made in an exclusive boutique in Shangai, Vernissage by Fang.
After the Trevi Fountain, they moved to Piazza di Spagna, then they walked up the Spanish Steps.
From uphill they reached the beautiful park of Villa Borghese, which rises above the center of Rome, in which they had fun renting a row boat, a couple of rickshaws, and taking pictures between alleys, paths, lawns, and woods.
“It has been a wonderful experience – says Claudia. Weddings are much more of a rush. I usually have no more than half an hour between the ceremony and the reception to take bridal portraits, with the spouses worrying about their guests being left alone. Having for once the chance to organize a full photo-shoot, instead, made it possible to shoot some amazing images whilst wondering around the eternal city”.
