I spoke with Ginevra the first time after he contacted me through matrimonio.com, the Italian portal that presents all the wedding industry suppliers to future spouses, to tell us about their pre-wedding on the shores of Lake Como.
Intrigued, I asked her why the photographer of their wedding does’t follow them also during their pre-wedding. Ginevra told me, then, that the photographer of their marriage would have been the uncle of Emanuel, Giovanni Gastel and, in that day, he was busy in some fashion projects.
Honored, now, to have been chosen and to have the opportunity to tell their pre-wedding, we meet in the early afternoon in Cernobbio to meet us before their party.
She, Geneva, brunette, sensual and of a disarming beauty.
He, Emanuele, Italian statuary, of the same beauty.
First impact? One word, empathy.
From the square of Cernobbio we move towards the pier for the docking of the boats where we awaited the private yatch, near Villa Gastel Visconti, the location of their wedding. The 200 guests coming from all over Italy and beyond are also waiting for us.
Moving away from the pier, all the guests were able to admire the typically Italian architectures that distinguish the panorama of Cernobbio, and admire, even from a distance, Villa d’Este and, soon after in order to shine, Villa Erba.
Here, we could take some time for some couple shoots under the beautiful light of sunset.
In the evening, the Yatch had taken us to the other side of the lake for dinner, at Momi restaurant.
A few more shots of the couple in the evening before joining them, as a guest, honored to celebrate with them that moment.
The story of a pre-wedding characterized by the beauty of the light, of Lake Como that was the background to this day, of the guests who enlivened the pre-wedding of Geneva and Emanuele, and of the beauty of Geneva and Emanuele.
