Il Teatro Mancinelli in Orvieto as a location for the civil cerimony
I took photos at this wedding last September. The couple did not ever realize when I was shooting. My style is photojournalistic and you can see it through my images. No poses – just some formal pictures with friends and parents if the couple want – but candid and spontaneous shots.
There were 30 guests at the wedding which gave it a real intimate atmosphere. They rented 10 old cars, FIAT 500s, in different colours and they drove by themselves. It was funny because these people were used to driving cars with automatic transmissions and it’s not so easy to drive with a manual stick shift, especially on an old car!!!!
For the ceremony location, they chose the old theater of Orvieto (we are in Italy about 2 hours from Florence and 1 hour from Rome), that is located in the center of the town. They got in married in a civil ceremony celebrated by the mayor of the town.
At the beginning it was a bit of a rainy day. As a photojournalistic style photographer I used the rain to catch nice moments with coloured umbrellas, and also as we were walking in the narrow street of Orvieto with guests, parents and friends. In the main square, just in front of the cathedral, they had parked the old 500s. Great pictures.
The weather turned beautiful with a fantastic light. We arrived at the private villa where I continued to shot in a candid way, in the garden, at blue time, with the fantastic effect of the balloons flying in the dark sky.
They did not have any first dance, instead they just enjoyed listening to relaxing music and drinking a good limoncello.
