Winning photo has been taken by Ordine della Giarrettiera which we would love to thank so much.
Alice and Antonella at Ordine della Giarrettiera are two talented photographers based in Milan who shot a very special moment in occasion of Kia and Riccardo’s wedding last June 2016.
The photo is really iconic for an Italian wedding. You can see it here.
Bride and groom go out of the church right after the Roman Catholic ceremony and everybody tossed them with rice throwing.
It is a traditional moment that cannot miss in an Italian wedding. In our tradition all guests go out of the church – or ceremony venue- before bride and groom and they wait inside the church. As soon as they go out of the ceremony venue everybody need to throw rice on their heads as symbol of good luck and prosperity.
Every Italian couple has a framed photo in their home with a photo like this… but we can say that this is one of the best one we’ve ever seen!
Kia and Riccardo got married on Lake Maggiore last June 2016. They planned a lovely and fun wedding in a lovely villa in Stresa with a full day of celebrations, garden games, music, dances and a gourmand lunch.
Their Catholic ceremony has been celebrated in a wonderful stone church overlooking Lake Maggiore in tiny village of Belgirate, few kilometres from Stresa. We talked about this wedding in our June – Just Married post but we will come soon to tell you about the full story with a dedicated post… so stay tuned.
The wedding will be also published on Italian Blog weddingwonderland.it in January 2017.
What a great successful wedding!
Congratulations to Valentina and Alice and Antonella at Ordine della Giarrettiera for this great achievement!
