Kneeling at the church altar together, the priest holds his hand above the couple’s heads to bless them.
Fabio and Barbara were searching for a photographer way before the lockdown in Italy. Their initial idea was to have a classical Italian wedding with all their friends and relatives.
During the lockdown, we kept in touch for a while, waiting for things to be less restricted. They considered postponing the wedding until 2021, but their desire to celebrate a wedding now couldn’t be stopped, especially once Barbara learned she was pregnant. They finally decided to celebrate a small ceremony with 20 guests in Napoli this year. It was a small wedding with a quick religious ceremony followed by a small reception at a venue on a rooftop with a beautiful view of the nearby sea.
Celebrating safely but still in style, the bride and groom’s rings sit next to the bride’s white lace face mask.
At home, Barbara spends time with a couple of the guests, who are both happy to be spending this special day with her.
Barbara’s brother walks her to the church as Barbara holds onto his arm while she looks around, taking in the scenery.
Finally, Fabio meets his future wife at the altar, and he greets her with a loving kiss on her forehead as all the guests watch from their pews.

The couple, now newlyweds, exit the church where guests throw rice at them in celebration, although Barbara tries to shield herself with her bouquet.
The city, situated right near the sea, provided the perfect atmosphere for a wedding, as the couple was surrounded by deep blue waters and beautiful views of the striking Mt. Vesuvius in the distance.
The bright, warm day was perfect for a stroll, and the newlyweds decided to take a walk together by the seaside among the locals, passing by various vendors and stands, smiling as they went.
The sun finally sets on this perfect day, casting warm light over Mt. Vesuvius and the beautiful blue sea.
