As a wedding photographer in Rome one of my favorite things is the variety of weddings you can have in Rome. Each Rome wedding is unique in it's own way. It's what makes being a wedding photographer in Italy so much fun!
This wedding was at the Villa Lais and everything about it was unique. This was a small wedding so the couple both got ready together in an apartment in the centre of Rome. And although we were on a tight schedule for this wedding we did get a chance to get a few shots of the bride and groom before we left.
Two cars took the couple and their guests out of the centre of Rome to the Villa Lais where the bride arrived into the gardens of the villa into bright sunshine.
Since we were the first wedding of the afternoon at the villa we had a few minutes to get some shots around the gardens.
And then it was time to get started with our Roman wedding! Since the bride and groom had already arrived together they decided to start the ceremony by walking down the aisle together.
Then once seated it was time for them to make their vows together.
And exchange rings.
Afterwards we had the chance to spend a few more minutes in the gardens of the Villa Lais which gave the bride a chance to toss the bouquet!
Once it was time to leave the cars were ready to take us back into Rome for some fun shots around the most famous landmarks.
Our couple were lucky enough to have a fantastic couple of drivers that really went out of their way to make their tour around Rome interesting and unique. To start with we headed up the Aventine Hill where we stopped at a little place not so well known to every visitor to Rome, the knights of Malta keyhole. It was a fun little stop for the bride and groom and a great place for some out of the way photographs.
And while the rest of the wedding guests had a look through the keyhole I had a chance to photograph the bride as she watched their reactions!
We made our way down from the Aventine hill and stopped at the Pantheon and the Colosseum before ending up at St Peter's.
As the afternoon was turning to dusk we got some fablous shots of the dome in the distance.
After this our drivers were still keen to show our couple the sights of Rome so we headed up to the summit of Gianicolo Hill to catch the end of the afternoon sun.
We were only together for four hours on this wedding shoot but we managed to pack in a full days worth of emotions and moments!
