Messina , Sicily , Italy
Wedding photographer Sicily – Italy
I had the pleasure of traveling to my beloved Sicily to photograph Alessandra and Angelo’s wedding. Being chosen as the photographer for this wedding allowed me to return to Sicily in a part still unknown to me: Messina.
How I Met the bride
The strange coincidences of life made me know the beautiful Alessandra in a strange situation and moreover in a city very far from Italy.
The first time our lives crossed was in Warsaw (Poland) on a job where there was an almost inexplicable empathy right away.
After a few months, randomness wanted us to meet again in Lisbon (Portugal).
In Lisbon Alessandra told me that Angelo had asked her to marry him and that he absolutely wanted me to be there to photograph one of the most important days of his life.
I still didn’t know where the wedding would take place but the idea of photographing such a special day of a person who had entered my life out of pure chance made me full of joy and I could never have said no.

And that’s how the fateful day came, a day in mid-October when Sicily still offers splendid sunny and warm days.
Everything was so perfect and organized as to leave me speechless, starting with her dress (a dress signed by the stylist Alessandra Rinaudo) made up of two skirts to be able to make a mid-day change.
Everything was chosen by Alessandra, who despite living in Milan was a little perfect in the organization miles away. Attention to detail and refined taste have given that perfect touch to this day, that romantic touch.
In addition, Villa Roberto, the location that hosted the celebrations, is located in the province of Messina and is truly beautiful with huge windows, a well-kept garden with a terrace that offers a truly exciting sunset over the Strait of Messina.
The arrival of the newlyweds was accompanied by a saxophonist who was really the icing on the cake.
A truly wonderful evening of celebrations and I can only wish the best to this wonderful couple.
I leave you with a selection of shots from the photo shoot of Alessandra and Angelo’s wedding.
