When people start to describe the Emerald Island, for a fearless wedding photographer like me, it all sounds like Disneyland! There are be thousands of interesting place and thing to boldly shoot! Moreover, you know what? They have something intriguing, I thought that the breakfast I usually have was the only possible on this planet: a small cappuccino and a small croissant, so sad… But no, they have “the fry”: baked beans, eggs, bacon, spam, black pudding, white pudding, potato bread and spam, all fried together to enhance the taste! I suddenly thought that I should emigrate, yeah, that is definitely the best of reasons.
I am sure that was a good reason for the parents of Liana and Paul too. In fact, they are from the south of Italy, Liana and Paul were tiny children when they undertook that journey but they immediately became full Irish.
They decided to get marry in Rome, for a gorgeous destination wedding so they gathered all the relatives scattered around the world, with the aim to have an extraordinary celebration. The wedding HQ was at De La Minerve Hotel, Liana seized it and made her base there, so she could quietly dress and put make-up on and be very beautiful, even if she does not needed because she already is.
At the sound of a piper, she entered the gorgeous baroque church of Sant’Ignazio di Loyola in the very centre of Rome, there then they married.
We went to the nearby Pantheon to take pictures and we moved to the Roman Forum and Colosseo that are definitely the place to go to take picture when you marry in Rome. Then we hasted to Villa Miani where they held the reception, one of the wonderful villas of Rome, with an amazing scenery, a stunning view of the city and surrounded by trees.
I’ll never be bored to hold my wedding photo sessions in Rome, this amazing city help you a lot with wonderful views, colours, landmarks, monuments and it’s amazingly one of the greenest cities of all.
What about me? I am just a little silly mad wedding photojournalist and you can tell it by the way I walk.
