Preparation of the bride and groom have already begun: Sacha is at the window of his apartment talking and joking with the guests. Eline is still immersed in preparations and is soon for photos. Among the guests, there are those who wash their teeth, who is bathing in the pool. Finally the preparations come alive, and I can begin to make the photos to the groom. Then call me from the apartment of Eline, the bride. The final preparations, the dress is already worn. MOM tie the bracelet around the wrist of Eline, the father who admires her daughter ready for the big day! Finally we go out: it starts! Ascending the stairs that lead to the garden at the top of the villa. The long walk that separates the ceremony area is full of greenery, immersed in olive trees. Sacha is there, standing, he sees his future wife to his father’s arm. Behold, it begins. A long speech of father of the bride, official ceremonies, committed much of the ceremony. After the promises and the exchange of rings, a toast with guests to celebrate the new married couple. In the afternoon a tour at a winery for a classic wine tasting. An excellent location to take pretty pictures in the middle of the vineyards and the cellar barrels. After returning to the estate, a break to prepare for the evening. And then, everyone at dinner!
