A wedding is a celebration” they say… then let’s celebrate!!
Giada’s house is in turmoil, everyone is running left, right and centre, trying to help. The excitement is palpable: hugs, kisses and watery eyes are all around. All the excitement is for this couple who is today fulfilling a dream of love.
Hanging on the wall is a photo of a younger Giada. The child seems to be curiously looking at the woman she became, wondering about this day. Who knows, maybe at the time the picture was shot, she was already dreaming about it. Upstaging Giada though, is Arturo, an adorable Labrador puppy, frolicking around in search of attention from his new owner.
The arrival to the church is moving. Fabio, accompanied by his mum, enters confidently. Confident, maybe, but only until Giada appears. Now his heart leaps up and his eyes get watery with love. Obviously, the guest of honour at the ceremony, Arturo, is here too!
After the ceremony we follow the couple for the reception to the Castello di Bevilacqua in Verona, a romantically exclusive location. In the throne room, the couple sits on two impressive royal chairs as the legitimate prince and princess of their special day.
The warmth of the summer air is filled with laugher, dances and songs, keeping the guests entertained throughout the day. At sunset comes a tender kiss, followed by the auspicious cutting of the cake. The night is young though, and everyone is still up for partying. Giada changes dress and the dance floor fills up!!!
With a firework display framing the starry night, I steal a last shot. Congratulations guys! May you be this happy and in love every day of your life!
Whatever our souls are made of,
his and mine are the same.
