Everything is special about this wedding day in Rome for me…Antonello and Fabrizio are getting married with a civil ceremony in the town hall “il Campidoglio”…Finally also here in Italy same-sex weddings are legal and I’m happy to be their photographer.
But first of all it’s Antonello wedding!
Antonello is one of those friends that although you see them only once in a while you always feel immediately close and you know he will always be there for you. We’ve always kept in touch over the past 25 years…and I was very happy and excited for him.
Over the years ‘Antonello Dose’ became popular in Italy thanks to a very successful morning radio broadcast called “Il Ruggito del Coniglio” and lately he also wrote an autobiography entitled “La Rivoluzione del Coniglio”… his book is full of surprises, it’s a gift…it’s a page turner you don’t want to stop reading and by following him through his journey he allows you to get a taste of the Buddhist prospective of life.
When he called me to ask me to be his exclusive photographer I felt afraid… I felt honored and fragile at the same time. I embraced the challenge and said yes immediately.
This wedding day in Rome was great and so emotional but at the same time so simple and intimate. Last but not least I could finally got to know Fabrizio ( Momo ) and I could not stop taking pictures of him…
“A new family starts when two people love each other, like me and Fabrizio ” those are the words of Antonello getting married to Momo.
Thanks to Simone Bertolo for being my assistant.
