Intimate wedding Francesco & Kateryna


Kateryna met Francesco as soon as she arrived in Italy and after falling in love with him, she decided to move permanently to Florence. Since that time they have never left. Their wedding was set for 2020, but due to Covid-19 it was not possible to celebrate with a big party, but they did not give up and they chose to celebrate the wedding in a more intimate and private way.

The couple chose to get married in the temple of Minerva Medica Montefoscoli, in Tuscany. An enchanted place. The temple immersed in a wood is built on the outside with small red bricks, and a large colonnade on the facade, inside instead a large semi-circular room with light tones and frescoed walls. The Temple is totally surrounded by Tuscan nature, nearby olive trees and vineyards are part of the surrounding landscape. The ceremony took place in the afternoon, just before sunset: Francis came accompanied by special family and friends. In an elegant blue suit, he waited with enthusiasm and emotion for the arrival of the bride next to the municipal officer, right at the foot of the temple. Kateryna got out of the car with the help of Francesco’s father and together they walked the long tree-lined avenue. Waiting for her were some friends, witnesses and her mother, the only relative from Russia. The bride was beautiful, in her white dress, original, light and simple but with a floral detail on the central part of the bodice and a white bouquet. Both spouses were very excited but during the whole ceremony their eyes never stop to exchanging sweet glances. After the civil ceremony we immediately went to take pictures around the temple. It was the month of July and the colors of the sunset were warm, a light breeze in the bride’s hair and the atmosphere was immediately warm and welcoming. The shots were made in a natural way and throughout the shooting the spouses constantly exchanged glances of complicity in the midst of the light that penetrated from the olive grove. Their wedding planner, Rinaldi Eventi, was also present at the small ceremony, who will help them celebrate the wedding in 2021 as well, with a stylish party full of love.
