One of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is the big fat holiday...
Happy Thursday everyone and if you are reading this in America, Then HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I hope you have a wonderful day! I am still wondering how in the UK we have managed to adopt the Black Friday tradition, but not managed to adopt Thanksgiving food! It all sounds so delicious! So if you are tucking into a Thanksgiving dinner later on, I will be thinking of you all. On with today’s wedding and I am taking you off to sunny Sicily for this super stylish, rustic chic wedding. Carmen and Corrado wanted their day to be about Boho vibes and personal DIY details, and this they did. The beautiful rustic venue lends itself perfectly to their vision and the lovely little touches of decoration are so lovely. Deborah Lo Castro was there to capture the day for us in all it’s glory.
Carmen and Corrado were married on 29th September 2018 at Cozzo Rose Church in Modica, with the reception at Villa Gisana in Sicily. We had 170 guests and it took 8 months to plan.
Hoe they met
We used to be friends for a long time, then we weren’t in touch for a long time. After this while of time we met again and quite soon we decide to start our love story.
The wedding proposal was on a beach during a trip to Australia

I am an Italian Photographer based in Sicily but working worldwide. I love telling the reality of what surrounds me and the tales of the people I meet, always trying to create a relationship based on trust and emphaty. Of the wedding day I love to tell the spontaneity and the authentic moments of the day, without faking nor forced poses, trying to capture the purest emotions.
