Clara e John
Clara and John’ story is like a romantic movie: Clara, a girl from Brazil, was working in a hostel in Milan when John, an American boy from Ohio, stopped by that hostel during his sabbatical before starting a new job.
Fate brought them together that day: it was love at first sight!
They got so close that they decided to move to Milan together. Today they live in London, but this couple have been living in four different countries since they first met.
When I asked them the reason why they chose Tuscany to get married, they answered me briefly and simply: “It’s the most beautiful place in the world.”
If I had to describe their wedding in a few words, I would def-initely say that it was elegant, intimate and engaging.
Clara got ready in the hot springs of Bagni di Pisa, the Grand Duke of Tuscany’s historic thermal residence, a place that still preserve both the charm and the elegance of the time. She wasn’t alone at all, her mum, her sister and her friends came from Brazil… A prep to the rhythm of music following perfectly the Brazilian style!
Meanwhile, John got ready with his parents and his friends inside Villa di Corliano, an ancient Renaissance mansion in San Giuliano Terme (near Pisa). This was the place where the wedding day took place.
Clara and John with a civil ceremony wedded inside Villa Corliano.
As in a fairy tale, Clara and John, both excited and gorgeous, exchanged touching pledges of love under an arch of flowers, accompanied by a string trio, surrounded by the love of their parents and friends, who arrived all over the world to share with them such a meaningful day.
After the ceremony we took photos with the Best Men and the bridesmaids. Then we walked away and started the couple photo session, enjoying every corner of Villa Corliano which is surrounded by a century-old park and is part of the protect-ed area of the Pisan mountains.
The warm light did the rest creating a magical glow that ac-companied Clara and John during the photo shooting. Their complicit gazes full of joy made this moment even more en-gaging.
The dinner took place around two lovely imperial tables lit by rows of lights, amidst exciting speeches and toasts.
