In the heart of Varese (together with Villa Paradeisos where Jonas and Rosita celebrated their wedding), in a unique position on the splendid Lombard shore of Lake Maggiore, better known as “Costa Fiorita”, stands Villa Repui, the location chosen by Edoardo and Martina for their big day.
Edoardo is still in the shower as soon as I arrive at his house, but his mother is ready with all the details (cufflinks, watch, bow tie, etc.), just as I requested, well positioned on a dresser at the entrance to Edoardo’s bedroom when he lived with his parents. Edoardo’s parents’ home is still immersed in the silence of the early morning hours, waiting to welcome all the guests, and the little ones who have moved all day (and they have been super partakers even during the ceremony!). At Martina’s parents’ home, Edoardo’s brother (a hairdresser, along with Edoardo, from the province of Varese) is finishing Martina’s trick to complete the hairstyle (and the beauty will take place in the afternoon: Martina and her brother have organized a little surprise for Edoardo) before Martina could wear her beautiful wedding dress. I have known Martina and Edoardo for a few months, and I have already had the opportunity to photograph their love story (yes, they are the protagonists of the Blue Lagoon love story I published a few weeks ago on my Facebook page) and I imagined that the on their wedding day they would have left everyone stunned, and so it was.
The square is crowded with people, in Samarate it is a party and all the citizens await the bride’s arrival curiously, while Edoardo enters followed by his grandchildren. An affectionate sermon, which tells of the childhood of Edoardo and Martina, of when as children they ran away from the working oratory until today, that they are promising eternal love, for the rest of their lives.
It’s time to reach Villa Repui and be fascinated by the view of Lake Maggiore (like the one on Lake Garda where the wedding of Tiziana and Patrizio or on Lake Como, the wedding venue of Charles and Cara was celebrated)! Inside the hall, the imperial table is dedicated to the friends of Edoardo and Martina who go wild at Victor di Victor Music at the sound of toasts, whistles, choirs and screams of joy!
Martina and her super dad open the dances and Martina immediately “disappears”. Edoardo, it’s time for your surprise: Martina changes her look, a medium-short cut frames her sweet face, and to the question “Edoardo do you like Martina with short hair?” immediately replies “Yes, but I wanted to cut them!” and ride!
We all move around the pool where Martina, Edoardo and their friends have organized a flash mob: after a sweet first dance as a husband and wife, it’s time to dive into the pool!
