A warm and sunny day of autumn in the Tuscan countryside, a few kilometers far from the medieval city of Siena, in a romantic castle covered with red ivy as the color of the passion and the wine of this ancient land. The castle of Celsa is not a mainstream venue and is difficult to find, surrounded by the Tuscan hills, but hides corners of rare beauty: a luxurious Italian garden, a small round chapel, an inner courtyard and an ancient balcony with a view from where you can see the city of Siena in the distance. Patricia and Juan chose this lovely Italian place as a destination wedding, as genuine as they are. This lovely couple has chosen to make a welcome dinner a little unconventional, a cooking school with Le Due Cuochine where together with friends of a lifetime they have learned and had fun preparing an Italian pasta dish (tagliatelle with sausage ragù!). It was really fun to see them knead the dough, cut the onions and the sausages!
I like to say, as a wedding videographer, that what makes the difference in a wedding film is not so much the show-off of flowers and tables, nor the dress of the bride and bridesmaids. The real difference is made by the love and warmth of friends and families. The quality of speeches when words come from the depths of the heart. This kind of love comes out of the screen and touches the soul.
The work of wedding planner Francesca Caloni of WeddingItaly was excellent and she designed this wedding in a perfect country style, with suggestions of an ancient time, like the fantastic musical acustic trio by Maurizio Marchini that enchanted and amused the guests with the accordion and their Italian folk songs.
Last but not least, it was an honor to work alongside Mangored, a great wedding photographer who came to the Philippines for this event.
