Destination Wedding in the countryside, ceremony at Torlonia Savelli Castle of Palombara Sabina

Intimate Destination Wedding photography in the countryside near Rome

At the Inesse Handmade Photography Studio as wedding photographers in Rome and throughout Italy, our job is primarily to imprint emotions, unforgettable moments and of course sensations. We had a wonderful feeling for this wedding, even before that day started. And we were right about it.

The gloomy sky and the droplets of rain in the morning disappeared at the perfect time, just during the pronunciation of  the fateful “yes”, leaving room to a day marked by amazing light and incredible colors.
The protagonists of this special day are a young American couple who came all the way from California to Italy, accompanied by their closest relatives and maid of honer and best man, to enjoy their wedding with an authentic Italian taste. Mark and Kendra are two musicians who met by chance in San Francisco during a music festival in their neighbourhood. Their spontaneity, cheerfulness and contagious smiles have positively impressed everyone, including us at Inesse. We had fun, we got excited and laughed a lot with them throughout the day.

Getting Ready

Both groom and bride got themselves ready at La Cucina Sabina, a boutique resort set in an elegant and welcoming environment, the perfect backdrop for this initial step of the day. The villa managers helped the couple in planning this day from the other side of the world. White dress for her, carefully tailored by L’ezu Bridal Atelier, and white suit for him, designed by Macy’s. For the shoes, they both chose the Tom’s line: Mark’s are simple and in style with his dress, those of Kendra are definitely original, without the canonical high heels … in the name of colours and comfort!

Ceremony and couple shooting

The newlyweds donated their dear guests, just over ten people, a wonderful day in a spectacular and romantic place such as the Savelli Torlonia Castle in Palombara Sabina. A spectacular location with a typical medieval taste that, thanks to the floral decorations of the bride’s mom, has turned into a perfect setting for their promises and the exchange of the rings. Mark’s one designed by Spexton Jewelry, while the one worn by Kendra is a dear family jewel.

Pronounced the promises, when the sun was ready to warm the valley with its light, we took a walk with the bride and groom, first around the castle and then through the streets of the ancient village. Glimpses, winding streets and a wonderful landscape have made this moment of the day very unique


For the reception we went back to La Cucina Sabina, a resort with a modern style that still retains the flavour of tradition and true Italian cuisine, whose heady scents had already seduced us since the morning during their preparation. After the dinner, held between exciting speeches, tears of joy and smiles, the newlyweds changed their clothes, put the last things in the suitcase to leave immediately for their honeymoon: a tour between Sicily, Malta, Casis and Paris.

A minivan going to the station was awaiting them at the entrance, to greet them … all the relatives were excited and in tears for them. A photo taken at this precise moment won the Wedding Photojournalist Association WPJA 2019.

Excellent Experience *****
“The entire crew was a blast to have at the wedding and then they delivered a phenomenal product (photos and videos). Would definitely hire again! Thank you!”
