DIY Xmas decorations - Part 1

My work station is full of craft boxes, paper scraps, old books and jumble which many people would trash with no hesitation. It's not me. I rescue them with passion, as I love giving objects a second life. While working at my first wedding in 2015, I realize that Xmas is just around the corner and I haven't prepared a single decoration. Many crafters and [...]

Elisa + Francesco and a lovely winter wedding

A romantic winter wedding Elisa and Francesco are about to celebrate their first anniversary of marriage.

The globetrotters - Stefano and Silvia

No better occasion than the Summer vacations to publish a travel-inspired real wedding. Stefano and Silvia have always their suitcases ready to go somewhere.

A lively family - Angelo, Simona and Petra

February 15th, 2015: my first wedding of 2015; my first wedding ever... The day after Valentine's day! Such a romantic atmosphere...

Simona is so passionate, she would never stop talking and you would ne[...]

Love is a winning game

Last year I took part in a treasure hunt in a corn maze organized by Hort Soc Coop in Senigallia: girls vs boys, lots of fun! We girls won of course :-) Women rule!! The corn maze is big, well-kept and the sun rays passing the plants at the sunset create a special, magical and romantic athmosphere. I thought it could be the perfect setting for an Engagem[...]
