Getting married at Castello degli Angeli
As we go through life our path intersects with others’, sometimes shortly, sometimes for longer periods of time, and after being apart for years we may unexpectedly meet again.
This is what happened with Stefania and Gabriele: we were coworkers back in 2006.
We are tied together by a common desire to change the world even if just a bit, to give our own contribution to our surroundings, to give ourselves to our children and enjoy what we are given.
The three of us all left our jobs and our secure paychecks to go after what we felt we were made for.
Gabriele now works in his family’s farm (they grow rice in Cascina Gilardona, near Novara) while Stefania, who was already mother to Anita and Olivia, decided to dedicate her life to children and founded Attivamente Lab.
Gabriele asked me to photograph their wedding on a summer afternoon, while we were sitting on a tractor in the middle of a rice field. I couldn’t be more excited to accept: we’ve already been working together on a photographic project and the fact that they asked me to also be present on their special day made me understand how important my work is to them.
The wedding took place on the hills of Bergamo, at Castello degli Angeli, in a peaceful, funny, familiar atmosphere. Instead of going into a detailed narration of the day I’m going to let you live it through the pictures.
