Italy wedding photographer: Daisy and Marvin

Italy wedding photographer, that’s our aim: to tell a story, a fairy tale about your love

I know it was a dream for Daisy. A wonderful day with a perfect weather, a gorgeous church in Perugia, San Michele Arcangelo, for the ceremony.

And a great location for the wedding dinner and party, the Borgia Castle.

The first stones of the Borgia Castle where laid at the beginning of the 14th century, period in which it was only a sight tower.

In the 15th century under the Borgia’s domain, the construction was transformed in a fortified advance post.

That area was at that time close to the border of the papal state and site of many wars.

At the end of the 18th century the construction was transformed into a more comfortable residential building, very similar to the castle today.

The last member of the Borgia family who owned the castle is Tiberio Borgia.

There is a stone in the chapel of the castle where it is impressed a prayer where Tiberio Borgia thanks the Holy Mary for surviving in the lake after almost drowning in it.

After the Borgia family two other families followed as owners of the castle.  In 1932 the castle and its big property around the lake was acquired by the family of the owner.

Unfortunately from the 1941 to 1944 the Castle was a war’s site and transformed into a German’s head quarters and point of resistance against the English army.

At the end of the war, once again restored, it has been used as a summer holiday residence for the owner’s family.

Close to the lake Trasimeno, this is one of the best location I ever seen, for its history, simplicity and at the same time, its importance.

A great day with this amazing families, with so much love around, a true fairy tale
