Villa Campolieto Wedding Photographer and Videographer
Marica and Sandro’s love is what the poets write about.
A true romance that begins in Caserta, where they are originally from, and finds its essence in the sweet and caring attention they have for each other.
When they decided to tie the knot on their unbreakable bond, they chose a place that represents all those qualities they see in themselves such as elegance, strength and uniqueness: Villa Campolieto.
Early morning preps in separate houses. Marica, an esteemed pharmacist, surrounded herself with her closest friends and her mother. The ladies spent their time laughing and helping the lovely bride put on the designer wedding dress, a stunning original by Enzo Miccio, the famous stylist and TV host.
Sandro also went back home with his mother and friends. The university professor wore a dark three-piece suit on a white shirt and necktie.
Colle Sant’Alfonso is a paradise on Earth. Sitting on the side of a hill, surrounded by green trees and overlooking the Gulf of Naples and the Vesuvius, the church is one of the main attractions in Torre del Greco.
When Marica arrived, all eyes were on her. In pure white, the beautiful young bride went for a square neckline and an impalpable veil, a large gown with a long train and Dolce & Gabbana stilettos. The dress left her shoulders and back naked. She made her way down the aisle accompanied by her father, who gave her away to the soon-to-be husband.
Sandro’s smile went from ear to ear when he lifted her veil. He gave her a sweet kiss on the forehead before promising her eternal friendship and love, as Marica did a second later. They exchanged the rings in front of the priest and their guests, in a solemn promise to respect and devote themselves to their newly-formed family.
After the photo session outside, on the church forecourt, everyone got ready for the party. The celebrations were held, as mentioned, at Villa Campolieto, on the Miglio D’Oro (The Golden Mile) in Ercolano. The Eighteenth century building was commissioned to the great Mario Gioffredo and completed by the architect and painter Luigi Vanvitelli, is nowadays a museum and an exclusive wedding venue. A special wedding venue for a special celebration. Everyone had a blast dancing to Raoul Orchestra’s live music.
It is evident by looking at the candid shots taken by wedding photographers of Studio d’Essai that the couple had nothing in mind but happiness, also thanks to the the expert wedding planner Simona Borea, who worked around the clock to make sure that everything was in its right place. A labour of love, we could call it, that, combined with the videos shot by the videographers – also from Studio d’Essai – highlights the deep affection and respect Sandro and Marica have.
They dined in a sumptuous room. A spectacle of dishes and a great selection of wines for fine tastes. Imagine admiring Vanvitelli’s frescoes while enjoying such delicacies. Every single thing and action shined in a different light that day: from the finely decorated wedding cake to the traditional throwing of the bouquet. Even after hours of partying and toasting, everyone looked as fresh as daisies. That’s what love does.
Celebrations went on until well into the night. Stars lit the path ahead for Sandro and Marica, and that path is paved with the promises they made: to be there, to be true to each other, in sickness and in health, forever.
