Getting married on a rainy day is probably one of the biggest fears couples have during the entire lead up to the wedding. Honestly, we really cannot blame them. After having spent so much energy and thoughts into something, you really don’t want it to be spoiled by the rain. However, we can never stress enough how much your attitude towards it can totally flip the coin and help you enjoy your day no matter what.

Why are we mentioning the rain you may ask? Well, the destination wedding of Gina and Andrei at Residenza Antica Flaminia wasn’t exactly what one may call “a sunny day”: a storm (and we’re talking proper storm!) was looming in and actually showed itself in its whole glorious strength during the ceremony. Not before, nor after, right in the middle of the ceremony. And do you want to know what happened? NOTHING, the guests opened up their umbrellas, Gina and Andrei stayed underneath the pouring rain and they got married, happily, regardless of the weather! And we bet if you asked them about their day, they wouldn’t even mention the rain, they would only mention the laughs, the joy and happiness! 

Outdoor wedding ceremony at Residenza Antica Flaminia, Rome

After getting ready separately, Gina and Andrei decided to have a first look and live in complete intimacy one of the most emotional moments of a wedding day. We suggested having it in front of the stunning floral composition that Leandro Flowers made for their outdoor ceremony. The lighting and frame were simply beautiful.

After a rainy outdoor ceremony, they had an aperitivo with their guests, only to sneak off as soon as we saw that the rain had stopped and that a beautiful light was coming out.

"On a  rainy day we keep monitoring the conditions of the weather and as soon as we see that a little window for pictures opens up, we make you aware of it and we quickly take you out to make sure you end up with some beautiful portraits regardless of the rain."

After their couple pictures, Gina and Andrei went back to enjoying their guests and reception, followed by the cutting of the cake and the first dance. 

Honestly, one of the most joyful days of the season. Both documenting Gina & Andrei's wedding at Residenza Antica Flaminia, Rome and working on their pictures later had been a bliss

We cannot thank enough guys for choosing us to witness and document such a day. THANK YOU.

Kind words from Gina and Andrei

"Phenomenal photographers!! We had the best experience with Benni Carol- both of whom were with us on our wedding day in Italy. They put so much love and attention into their work, and it was more than evident in the beautiful pictures they captured for us. Benni and Carol were highly professional, organised, and accommodating, and were able to wrangle our various groups together (bridesmaids, groomsmen, family) to create amazing portraits and group photos. Benni and Carol were even able to adapt our photos around a rainstorm to ensure that we still captured all of the photos we wanted, and with stunning backdrops and lighting. Our favourite pictures are probably from the dance party, which they captured so well- we'll be able to relive this day forever thanks to them. Don't hesitate to book them for any occasion!"
