The entrance of the bride. This is the first moment the groom sees his love in the wedding dress. There is soft music being played live by a harpist, which begins with the entry of the bride and continues throughout the ceremony.

This is a wonderful story of a Canadian couple that decided to have their wedding elopement in Florence as this is the bride's beloved city, where she studied and which is associated with her many beautiful experiences and friends. Just a part of her life.

The wedding venue was at Villa Cora, which is placed on a hill, quite near to the Florence old town center. This is a very old building, with a characteristic Tuscan design and wonderful interiors. From its roof, there is a beautiful view of the city.

The wedding ceremony was supposed to take place outside, in the adjacent garden. The weather forecast for this day was worrisome, however, as a big storm, with rain and weather change to come exactly at midday, right when the ceremony was to begin. And it really did come. Fortunately, there was a plan B prepared, and finally, the ceremony was moved to the Villa Cora interiors. As they say, every cloud has a silver lining - the Cora's interiors are so gorgeous, that I couldn't imagine better 'backdrops' for my shooting and were very conducive to the atmosphere of the ceremony. The beautiful eyes of the bride were showing openly her emotions when the groom was reading his love letter. The groom was moved so much when she was reading her letter. Then the wedding rings, first kiss, family and friends' best wishes, hugs and clapping hands.

For the moment I was preparing my position for the group photo. In the moment that I was away the groom's father took my place. It was a funny situation when I was taking this shot.  The groom's father did not see me, which amused the participants of the photography very much.
