Dream Indian Wedding in Umbria | The Amazing Story of Pia and Francesco | Solfagnano Castle

This is the selection of our favorite photos from Pia & Francesco’s Indian wedding in Umbria. It’s just a small recap of several days of celebrations that took place at Solfagnano Castle, near Perugia. For almost a week the medieval building and the peaceful countryside around were shaken by the dances, colored by Saris and turbans. Indian moccasins decorated the monumental stairway to the flower covered wedding canopy where the happy couple were surrounded by their families and hundreds of friends. All around the castle there were little markets set up with typical furnitures and colorful fabrics, where the guests could relax and feel like home. A unique mix of Italian style and Indian taste.

Wedding in Central Italy: Santo Stefano di Sessanio

SEPTEMBER 2014. As a destination wedding photographer in Italy, I have been asked to shoot a wedding in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, in the province of L’Aquila, Central Italy.

I’ts not the first time for me in this small town surrounded by the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park. The chosen venue is Sextantio, Albergo Diffuso, a “diffused hotel” whose rooms are houses of a historical, medieval village, only partially reformed. A very seductive set for me, as a lover of the photojournalistic, spontaneous, reportage style.

This time I meet a couple from Texas, USA. I suddenly fall in love with their happiness, simplicity, sweetness of the whole family and their sense of fun. Not every day, indeed, you meet a couple getting married dressing Converse shoes for the ceremony, both the bride and the groom! And this was only the beginning…
