When I first met Lorenzo and Giorgio, I immediately knew they were special people. When I learned that they had chosen me to photograph their wedding at the Odescalchi Castle in Santa Marinella, however, I must admit that I began to wonder if I was really the right person to tell a story as special as theirs. Did I really have the sensitivity it takes to depict their relationship through my shots, authentically and above all without clichés?
Lorenzo and Giorgio, who celebrated their civil union at the Odescalchi Castle in Santa Marinella, were a revelation to me. I immediately entered, as if by a mysterious attunement, into their wavelength, solid with complicity, understanding, harmony. Their emotions, their tears, their smiles were so authentic and alive that capturing them with the lens was something more than a professional satisfaction.
It was seeing two happy young people who, perhaps, before they got to officially exchange their promise, will have had to face and overcome some difficulties, some misunderstandings, some perhaps not always pleasant experiences. In short, a love put to the test that finally wins its recognition, its legitimate acceptance.
The ceremony of their civil union at the Odescalchi Castle in Santa Marinella lived up to this joyful expectation. The wide and evocative spaces offered by this splendid place really gave a feeling of freedom, of lightness. The castle, imposing, but not austere, the green vegetation around and especially the expanse of the sea in front in which the gaze could be lost in infinity, all contributed to make their union festive, cheerful and engaging.
But, I would like to emphasize it once again, it was they, Lorenzo and Giorgio who gave it a unique character, because they let their emotions, their feelings come out into the open and let them circulate freely, without fearing that perhaps not everyone would understand or welcome them. It is this, more than anything else, that made their civil union at the Odescalchi Castle in Santa Marinella a truly special day, where nothing was taken for granted, but everything lived with the fullness that only feelings, when authentic and true, can ensure.
