After meeting them for the first time in Vernazza, Liguria, for their engagement,
I visited Alvina and Cornelis in Amsterdam, the city where they currently live, for their marriage. The Dutch capital was enchanted by the lovely weather of May, the month the bride and groom chose for their wedding: the very pleasant day, sunny and not too chilly, allowed the couple to see their programme come true with no rubs. It all began with a pleasant morning breakfast and a walk in the city center, followed by the ceremony in a wonderful chapel just outside Amsterdam. Then, during an unforgettable reception on a boat and the unmissable visit to a traditional mill I could capture some peculiar pictures. The style of the photographs taken ranged from the candid report during the preparations to the classical posing situations, as the sequences just outside the Van Gogh Museum, while in other locations I preferred to portrait the couple leaving them a complete freedom of movement in a controlled context.
