Sometimes two people meet. They fall in love. They marry. Violins start playing. Clouds turn pink. The sun shines. Sometimes not.
COUNTDOWN DAY 2
I came from Stockholm when I arrived in Brindisi to shoot the wedding of Cynthia and Kasper. It was cold in Sweden, raining. I was really looking forward to spend some days under the sun of South Italy.
Cynthia and Kasper welcomed me as if I was part of the big family. We spent the first day enjoying the italian heat in one of the very special “trulli” at the swimming pool – together with 3 jewels of love, the kids: Laura, Tommy and Kaj.
The evening ended with a warm-up italian dinner at the Pizzeria Quadrifoglio in Casalini di Cisternino.
COUNTDOWN DAY 1
If you ever thought about celebrating your wedding in Apulia (quite great idea, by the way!!) -> don’t do it without Nicola.
He is the best organizer I ever met. What ever you want. He get’s it. Whatever you need. He has it. Every problem your guests will have. He resolves it. And, by the way, he is a wonderful cook.
(You will recognize him on the picture with the Vespa.)
Sunday evening nearly every one of the guests was there. Cynthia and Kasper welcomed their friends and family with a very romantic sundowner garden party.
THE BIG DAY TAKE OFF
While Kasper was getting ready somewhere else, Cynthia, Laura and her friends prepared themselves in the “Home-Trullo” for the big event.
A very professional team styled them in the garden – surrounded by olive trees which Nicola also styled the night before: with little announcements of the big coming event …
THE BIG MOMENT
Take a look at the location, La Masseria Refrigerio: http://www.masseriarefrigerio.com/gallery.php!
An italian dream …
Take a look at the ceremony!
A dutch dream of love in South Italy …
Take a look at how Laura, Tommy and little Kaj took part in the ceremony!
You’l feel the love (and maybe understand why I had – again! – to fight against tears while I was doing my work) …
THE STORMY PARTY
Everybody was sitting in the patio of the 400 year old building. The tables were overloaded with antipasti you did not even know that they exist. Kasper’s speech was done. Everybody rose the glas of wine to start celebrating. And then …
.. the storm came.
A big one.
The first rain since three months.
Perfectly as it was organized (did I already mention Nicola?) it took some minutes to replace more than 70 people from the outside to the inside of the Masseria Refrigerio. And the party went on.
Big love overcomes all kind of storms.
Even if their are a very rare and seldom phenomenon.
Thx Cynthia and Kasper for letting me be a part of it.
