Laura + Rich’s Rosa Rosae wedding took place just north of Venice, Italy in early September and it epitomizes the reasons why we got into photographing these celebrations in the first place; a tight group of family and friends celebrating love in a beautiful part of the world, an equally beautiful venue, well-hosted, impeccably decorated, serving exquisite food and drink in a very relaxed atmosphere.

      From our fresh linen sheets that smelled of Jasmine, we gently woke to the sound of the night’s rain fading and the chirping of a few birds. With cameras in hand and a good cappuccino coursing through our veins, we found a few ambitious guests attempting yoga in the wet grass. They were eventually deterred by the clouds squeezing out the last of their damp cargo, but took shelter inside the estate which smelled of fresh cut flowers, breads, and preparation the evening’s meal.

      A feast for the senses, Rosa Rosae – the venue run by the eccentric, graceful Betty and Silvio – is really an oasis that is tuned to ebb and flow with its surroundings; a babbling stream that provides a soothing base-soundtrack, the chirping of cicadas, a gentle breeze, and the creaking of wooden floors under foot. The property, which serves too as a small vineyard and restaurant on Thursdays and Fridays, is surrounded by a citrus grove in the east and a small dairy farm to the north, both providing local ingredients for their bustling kitchen which serves some of the best food we’ve eaten anywhere in our world travels.

      Fully tuned, we began to photograph the day, casually at first, and still casually later on. Laura and Rich are wonderful hosts and included us in the day as if we were guests – truly a special gesture and one that enabled us to really capture the day from a unique, personal level – one that allowed us to capture some of our favourite photos we’ve ever shot at a wedding. The day was impeccably organized with respect to Laura and Rich’s vision by Sylvie at My Italian Wedding Planner – she did an amazing job and we really enjoyed our time getting to know each other over one of the best dinners we’ve ever eaten (did we mention the food yet?).

      A beautiful union and experience. Thank you all! Saluti!
