Camilla and Pierre-Antoine are such a cool couple! Not only do they both look stunning (ok, especially Camilla – I don’t know what the girl’s been doing with her hair but I want it for myself!!) but I also loved what they shared about the organisation of their wedding. I really encourage you to read their story, which I have to admit, reminded me a bit of our own wedding – especially for the drunk-too-soon part (except that I don’t regret it, HA!). Photos were taken by Bianco Photography, based in London UK.
The wedding took place on May 10, 2014 in Milan Italy. From the bride.
I’m Italian and he is French so the main issues were wine, food and the big dilemma: champagne or prosecco? In the end I won and it was all pure Italian :).We did not want to have a traditional wedding, we strongly believe that the real commitment is the one you take in front of your family and friends.. not by signing some stupid paper. Our best friend Michele performed the ceremony, we had three best men each and I also had 2 additional bridesmaid. During the ceremony they all said something personal about us and then we exchanged our wedding bands.Our cake was a dark chocolate one with raspberries everywhere.We have a very peculiar music taste. We hired a rockabilly band. All the music from the “apero” until 2AM was pure American rock and roll from the 50s.
Name on thing you regret…
The only thing I regret is that I was not able to fully enjoy this moment. I was too stressed checking if people were having fun. I was also a bit drunk too soon. :)
… And one thing that makes you proud.
1) As per the food, we decided to keep it simple and this choice paid out.All tables (just 3 long tables) were set but there was no service at the table.2) Every time I went to wedding I ran out of cigarettes. For this reason, we bought a big box of Marlboro Lights and put cigarettes everywhere. People loved it.
The word of the photographer.
I first met Camilla and Pierre-Antoine in a little lovely pub here in London: they both live and work here, and I immediately felt they could have been rather friends than clients to me. Their wedding was exactely like them: classy and wonderful. Villa Necchi was a stunning location in the heart of Milan, and I was totally raptured by the Villa’s indoor. The whole party was perfectly set up by MADA, AFM banqueting and Faglioni Wedding, and liven up by the amazing band The Shakers – best 50s and 60s band ever! I feel so incredibly honoured to had the chance being at their side in such a wonderful day indeed.
