Last month I squeezed as much of my camera gear into a carry on bag as possible and set off for Rome to photograph a beautiful Bolivian/Italian/Australian/English wedding.
As soon as I arrived at the church I saw an outside wall. I made the bride promise to stay still and led the groom to the other side of the wall so they could have their first picture together on their wedding day without seeing each other.
Lots of relatives travelled a really long way to get to this wedding and it was conducted in Italian, English and Spanish. Unfortunately the bride's grandmother couldn't be there so every time a group photo was taken of her side of the family they all said 'Granny' instead of 'cheese'. The bride and groom were fine with other people taking pictures and videos so they could send them straight over to her and other friends and family who couldn't make it to Rome.
After the ceremony I was driven around with the groom, the bride and her strong cousin who was a brilliant bag carrier and veil holder. They were congratulated by a lot of tourists at The Colosseum and even another couple whose wedding I think we might have crashed at The Garden of the Oranges.
The reception was at Villa Ottaviani. We ate a lot, we danced, the grooms mum and sisters gave a lovely speech and the band (who were amazing) let friends and family take turns singing for everyone.
Massive thank you to the bride, the groom, both their families and friends who made the day so special. I had a really great time taking these photos. I hope you enjoy looking at them. The bride and groom run a really nice bed and breakfast in Rome so if you want me to put you in touch, let me know!
