Wedding at Villa Cora in Florence | M + M

Destination wedding Villa Cora in the city of renaissance – Florence – Italy

Destination weddings in Florence is a great choice for a foreign couple, wedding at Villa Cora and even much more.

We are so lucky to live and work here and have the opportunity to see this beautiful city every day as a source of a good inspiration.

Marina and Maxim, the couple of this video, had two weddings. The first day they got married at the incredible Russian orthodox church of Florence in Via Leone X. This place is full of a good and an ancient atmosphere, the priest is really a good person and, we have to say, very cinematographic. The marvelous voices of the church’s choir deeply touches us every time we hear them.

After the  ceremony the couple moved to the church of San Miniato for the photo and video shooting. It is a famous place because of its architecture and the artworks inside, it is also known for a great view of Florence that you can admire from there.

The day after Marina and Maxim had a western ceremony in the garden of Villa Cora. Villa Cora is one of the best venue for destination wedding in Florence, especially if you want to stay in the center of Florence with a luxury service. You feel the Villa`s elegance in every its detail, every corner is truly beautiful and created for a great and exclusive stay in Florence. The guests have a feeling to be in an elegant fairytale.

All the guests of Marina & Maxim participated at the second day wedding and it was beautiful.

Everything became possible thanks to Victoria Donkina the owner and art director of the Event agency – Victoria Donkina Carpe Diem Events. She planned so well everything and she made everything to work perfectly.

She even organized a show of the birds of pray in the garden after the ceremony and it was the amazing experience to take footage of these birds with our video cameras. But it is so difficult to explain the feeling, just have a look to videos and pictures to understand better what I mean.

In these days we had the opportunity to work with two different staff of photographers. The first day we worked with Iuri Niccolai the owner of Charmewedding.  The second day we was with Riccardo Pieri.

This wedding was in April 2015. Our first wedding of the wedding season 2015 here in Italy.

We created for them our “Destination Wedding Video Package” that includes an extra day shooting, the wedding shooting day, an Highlights (as you can see in the top of this page) and two wedding films including some extra tracks for their speeches. Everything was delivered in our wooden elegant box with a dvd and the digital weblink for the HD format of their videos.

Thank you Victoria Donkina for having introduced us to the couple and thanks to Marina and Maxim for having engaged us for making their wedding video.

Destination Wedding in Renaissance Phuket Thailand | M + A

Destination wedding in Phuket

Destination weddings are always a great source of inspiration for photographers and videographers.

We love to travel because everytime we receive a reward in experience and creativity. Mancy and Arnold’s wedding was an amazing opportunity to meet a wonderful couple as well as visit the beautiful island of Phuket in Thailand.

Their venue was the Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa located near some unspoiled beaches in the north of the island, quite far from the Phuket’s vibrant nightlife. It was a fantastic ceremony and they exchange vows of eternal love on the beach of Renaissance Resort and its luxurious beachfront.

I was already traveling in Asia, and had just come back from Maldives fora video created for the Maldives Government and Maldive Alternative shown at the Expo in Milan

Arnold and Mancy both live in Hong Kong and work for Dior, but Mancy’s family is from France and the groom from US. However, since they are originally both from China, they felt the need to honor their roots by having a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony before their romantic Western beachfront ceremony.

We had the opportunity to work again with one of the best destination wedding photographer named Vangelis (our “master of light!”) and his friend the photographer Nikos Gogas. It was great to cooperate again with him and witness their fine and elegant style.

For the first time we had the honor to meet the best make-up artist in Thailand, WOW Make Up. She is so talented and really not just professional but even a true artist.

This wedding was in February 2015. Our first wedding of the wedding season, a great way to start the amazing working season that has just finished!

So thank you Mancy and Arnold for your elegance and kindness, thank you Vangelis for inviting us and your pleasant way to be and work. We wish to all of you all the best.
