Jennifer and Al’s wedding – Iffley Village and Tap Social Movement

Happy 2019!

I want to start the New Year sharing some photos of these two beautiful people in love: Jennifer and Al. I had the pleasure to photograph their wedding day last October, on a very cold and dark afternoon. When I reached the church – St Mary the Virgin, in Iffley Village – it was raining. Clear drops were on the trees’ branches, on the falling leaves, and on the wild berries, grown in between some old walls and the wooden fence of an enchanting cottage. Everything was silent and beautiful; then the guests started arriving, and so a smiling and happy Al, followed not long after by the lovely Jennifer, in her long white dress, holding a beautiful autumn’s colours bouquet.

The ceremony was relaxed but touching, and the warm atmosphere of the little church made everything perfect. At the end of it, despite the rain, we managed to find a few minutes to take some photos in the garden. Al and Jennifer were looking radiant! And so they were for the rest of the evening, spent at Tap Social Movement. I loved taking photos to their guests ordering hamburgers in the vans outside, chatting happily under the umbrellas; and I loved taking photos to the children playing board games – organized by Thirsty Meeples – while a band was playing for everybody’s enjoyment. So many special moments have been offered to my camera, on Jennifer and Al’s big day, and I feel lucky I had the chance to capture them. Joy and fulfillment were all over, and I wish them to be in this lovely couple’s everyday life for all the years to come.

Social Impact Careers Conference

When I am not taking portraits, or dreaming to travel around the world writing about its people and wonders, I am more than happy to cover events and conferences like the one I had photographed last May at the Said Business School, in Oxford. The Social Impact Careers Conference was indeed a great event that gathered together both students and professionals to talk, share, build networks, think about the future in a positive light. I have definitively learned so much, although simply hidden behind a camera.
