Vibrant and colorful Italian wedding surrounded by rolling hills
Marcello and Massimo got married on a warm summer evening surrounded by beautiful and vibrant Italian hills. Everything about this wedding was personalized to the couple, from the handwritten invitations sealed with wax to the poems they distributed to guests at the end of the evening.
“As part of their story, they share a love for South Africa and its customs,” wrote photographer Marco Mazzoni, “A country where they have gone several times and whose manifesto of freedom has become very important to them, as it is a symbol of an initially opposed union coming together.”
“For this reason, the couple inserted in each invitation a handwritten note with a special sentence from the 1996 South African Constitution: ‘Everyone has inherent dignity and the right to have their dignity respected and protected.'”
The couple chose a color palette of dark reds, violet and burgundy and also utilized a type of South African flowers called protea.
“The couple’s outfits are both creations of the Italian designer Cleofe Finati,” Mazzoni explained. “Using eccentric silks with great personality, almost theatrical, but always very elegant. The shoes followed the same brilliant style. The outfits were made complete with adorable accessories such as the top hat and a walking stick dipped in gold. All designed by Cleofe Finati.”
