Chiara and Laura – Gay Wedding in Italy
05 Mar 2013
A few days ago finally arrived my copy of ‘Capturing Love – The Art of Lesbian and Gay Wedding Photography‘ at my studio and I am very pleased two of my photos are featured. It’s also a great opportunity to post Chiara and Laura’s beautiful lesbian wedding :-)
When they both asked me to document their wedding I immediately agreed and could not wait for it. I’ve always wanted to shoot a same-sex marriage and… just a few miles from my studio. It was a beautiful wedding, very emotional and full of tears, and I can always say only: whether man or woman, important is that there is love.
The symbolic ceremony was held by Don Franco Barbero, a former Italian priest and activist, known for his criticism of the doctrine, liturgy and the magisterium of the Catholic Church, because of which he was defrocked by Pope John Paul II at the beginning of 2003. The wedding took place at the ‘Locanda della Torre Antica‘ in Alassio, Liguria, Italy.
