When you are always travelling around the world, sometimes you don’t realise that beauty can also be found around the corner. And that is exactly what happened to me at this wedding at Villa Piccolomini, one of the most beautiful locations in Rome, my city. What struck me so much, however, was not the villa, which although very beautiful, I already knew quite well. What struck me were the protagonists of this story: Chiara and Niccolò. Two delicate, simple but naturally elegant young guys, which is increasingly difficult to find nowadays.
Their trust in me from the very first moment allowed me to tell their day in a totally authentic way, being present both in the moments of joy and in those of despair, when a rain shower, as strong as it was unexpected, seemed to ruin the day. And instead, like all stories with a happy ending, at Villa Piccolomini the clouds made way for the blue sky that, with a golden light, shone on Chiara and Niccolò, making their day even more magical and delicate.
Lately I often travel and photograph sumptuous weddings or exotic locations, but the feelings I felt at this wedding made me realise once again that for an emotional story it is not so much the “Where” but the “Who” that counts.
