Getting Married in Rome
What a fantastic destination wedding in Rome Italy! Starting at the magnificent Eitch Borromoni hotel in Piazza Navona. Where all the preparations were taking place. Before an incredibile view of Piazza Navona from above. With the bride preparation under the skillful hands of Anna curating the make up and hairstyle of the bride and also of the two bridesmaids. The final effect was just stunning! So as the guest and families were headed to the church. The photographer took some pictures of the beautiful bride in the courtyard of the hotel room. Which has a privileged view of Sant’Agnese church by Borromini. Then they went down to the ground floor of the hotel lobby and waited for the wedding car to pull around.
Church Wedding in Sant’Alessio
Everything was ready for the arrival of the beautiful bride. Whose entrance followed the flower girls and bridesmaids accompanied by the her father. The ceremony was heartfelt and after the reciprocal yeses, the bride and groom were welcomed with a lot of joy and happiness! Which carried them outside of church under a shower of rose petals.
Then we headed back through the church and into the rear gardens which have a fantastic view over Saint Peter’s dome in the far distance. Location where we would soon go to, to take wedding pictures in Rome. Before going to the wedding reception lunch, we swung around the Roman Colosseum which was in the area, to read each other vows and to take family pictures with the unique monument in the background.
Wedding pictures in Rome
After the wedding reception lunch we headed over to the Trevi fountain to capture some more nice newlyweds photos. We knew it was not going to be an easy task. As a huge crowd was waiting for us! But we decided on a surgical intervention. We drove right through the square. Descending from the car in front of the bewilderment and amazement of the multinational crowd. We swiftly moved across and were blessed with some really spectacular bride and groom shots. In front of the fountain and on the side of it. We were quick to get in and quick to get out with some awesome wedding photos!
It was very much downhill from there. We visited the Roman Forum seen from the above Piazza del Campidoglio. Which aside from this magnificent view over ancient Rome. it also offers some really wonderful photo opportunities. With a large and wide staircase as the perfect backdrop to wedding photos. Ancient white marble statues to be used as perfect props. Scenic porticos with soft sunsetting golden light shining through which enabled us to get some really nice wedding photography.
Then we swung the car around and headed on the other side of the Tiber river into the Vatican city. Where Saint Peter’s square was waiting for us with all its splendor. First taking pictures under the massive colonnade. Then moving into the square itself taking pictures by the water fountain and right underneath the basilica. Where we found this fantastic light which allowed for some nice photo effects. Ending the bride and groom shots first at the Roman Pantheon where we found quite a large crowd and ultimately back to Piazza Navona. Where it all started and where it ended with an Italian Gelato!
