Destination Wedding Photographer in Passignano sul Trasimeno, Italy
Parmeet is a very good friend of ours and we have known her for many years now. Francesco and Parmeet got married in India in her hometown, Jallandhar. Its a shame that I could not photograph her big fat Indian wedding, where she looked absolutely stunning in her Indian outfit and Francesco looked really cute with a traditional Indian wear and a Kurta. I was really looking forward to photograph their reception in Italy.
Passignano is a small town 20km north west of Perugia. It is a commune in the province of Perugia which is in the beautiful region called Umbria. Its a beautiful little town nestled around Lake Trassimeno with some fantastic restaurants, artisan shops selling great Umbrian produce and has fantastic friendly population. Parmeet and Cesco, as he loves to be called, stayed at a camp in Punta Navaccia along with their close friends and cousins. It is a fantastic site. They both were to get ready there, but Cesco was asked to drop some guests off at the venue in the last minute. When Parmeet got ready, there was no sign of Cesco, so we called him and told him that we are getting his clothes at the venue to get changed, as we were late already. Reaching the venue we saw the guests had already arrived and Cesco standing and chatting to them, still in his shorts and t shirt.
Before we left for Italy, we were warned that Italians love their food and wedding and events are the times when they just want to relax, eat and drink. This was absolutely true. We experienced it. The food was fantastic and kept coming till the time I couldn’t even swallow a bite. It was absolutely amazing food.
We experienced the most emotional speech from the groom. First we waited for bride’s father, before the speeches could start, who was no where to be seen. Later when he was found, he admitted he went out for a stroll to a beautiful country side. Cesco started his speech but could not continue for very long, he remembered his grand father and broke down. It was so emotional, it said it all that he loves his family so much.
I can just go on writing about my experiences from the day. But I guess you are not here to read that. Here are some of the pictures from the day.
