Different people visit Bologna for a variety of reasons. Lately, it has become the choice destination of those who’d like to tie the knot. It offers a rich history and ambiance for the legendary Bologna Wedding.
Claudia and George, a young couple from the US, were not to be left behind. They chose to celebrate their wedding with friends and family who were more than willing to experience the sheer beauty of a true Bologna Wedding first hand.
Claudia, the young beautiful bride, had spent a substantial part of her teen years in Bologna. Her father had worked here as an expatriate in the earlier years. As such, she was fond of this part of Italy.
Mezolara di Budrio
The lovely couple settled on Mezolara di Budrio as the place to do their preparations for the wedding. This village is set about 7km for Bologna, the capital of Emilia.
Admittedly, their choice was the right one. We were able to capture the great sense of history in this populous village. Also, we arranged for breathtaking photo shoots for the couple on various parts of this village. This captured the essence of its real cultural wealth.
We couldn’t fail to capture the amazing moments as the couple posed on the backdrop of the awe-inspiring hills of Mezolara di Budrio. Indeed, this was a choice destination for wedding preparations. And, we ensured that they’ll never forget those amazing moments they enjoyed before they finally said, I do!’
San Demetrio IL Nuovo
With the preparations all done, it was now time to do the most important bit of the wedding ceremony. This was the time to take the vows and exchange the rings.
Both bride and groom have a strong religious inclination. As such, they had decided on the San Demetrio IL Nuovo church as the venue for this. This church is located in the Comune di Molinella.
The church itself is a marvel in both architecture and history. We knew that this meant a lot for Jayden and Michelle. Thus, we ensured that we did excellent photography work at this location. The architecture is out of this century, with unique features that you can hardly get anywhere else.
As friends and family milled around the bride and the groom respectively, we ensured that our cameras were clicking from the best angles. After all, these are memories of a lifetime. And, the settings of the San Demetrio Il Nuovo church offered such a rich background that we simply could not resist capturing several photos for the couple. Of course, everyone helped along with their rich, warm smiles. These were scenes of pure happiness!
Comune di Molinella
Then, it was time to walk down the aisle. First entered the groom and his party. As they made their way to the altar, they sashayed jovially to the sound of music emanating from the public address system. Their journey was slow, measured, and full of color. It took a mere 5 minutes, but it might have as swell lasted a lifetime. We took every opportunity to capture the amazing details as the groom and his escorts made this walk.
The music changed to something even slower, and the bride and her bridesmaids appeared at the entrance. The audience, which compromised a number of notables from Comune di Molinella, fell silent as they beheld the beauty before them. The bride and her bridesmaids were simply stunning.
They took the walk down the aisle without much fanfare. However, each step they took was electrifying. You could see the indescribable joy inscribed on the groom’s face as the love of his life elegantly moved towards him. Such moments should be cast in stone. Better still, they should be captured with state of the art photo equipment. They do not occur every day!
The lovely couple exchanged their undying love for each other, and it was now time to go for the reception party. The groom swept the bride off her feet and offered to carry her to the waiting carriage outside the church.
But, there was an almost near-accident moment! On reaching the last steps out of the church, the groom stumbled when he missed a step. Fortunately, the best men were at hand to quickly support him. Few in the congregation noticed this. We did, and we captured the spontaneous moment for posterity.
Restaurant il Giardino
The now husband and wife had chosen their reception to be at the classic Restaurant il Giardino. This venue is quite spacious and can hold an incredibly large number of revelers at any one time. It offers very intimate outdoor and indoor facilities. Also, the couple had settled on the Restaurant il Giardino for its authentic Italian meals.
This venue offered ripe opportunities for photo sessions. Anyone thinking of doing a Bologna Wedding would consider it the venue of their dreams. Think of all the experience you’d enjoy at the true Caribbean paradise. That’s Restaurant il Giardino for you! And, we can be there to capture every single moment of your happiness!
