L’emozione non ha voce” , i.e., emotions can’t be expressed with words:  a song written by the popular Italian singer Adriano Celentano. What we can say is, those emotions could be easily read in Serena and Eleonora’s eyes, during their same-sex wedding. Actually, the sky was cloudy on that September day, but their enthusiasm and positivity enlightened the atmosphere in a very touching way. As soon as we met them, we thought that their wedding would have been an unconventional one: not only because it was the very first same-sex wedding celebrated in the municipality of Albissola, but also because we had already had the opportunity to spend some time with them  before that day, and we immediately felt positivity, enthusiasm, simplicity, love and joy.

Hand in hand, as usual, they started a new path walking together through the streets of Albisola, after having got ready in their house. They were both wearing a white dress and accompanied by their fathers. The ceremony was held at the Passeggiata degli Artisti in Albisola Superiore and officiated by the tourism council member of Albisola Superiore Luca Ottonello.

Rossella Saburri Event Planner organized a wonderful setting for the ceremony by the sea. Their loved ones were waiting for them, together with the members of “Associazione Eunike”, founded by Eleonora and Serena. The association promotes and increases sports and recreational opportunities for disabled people: a project in which they’ve always strongly believed and take part actively.


Once the ceremony was over, Eleonora and Serena had their first couple photo session with us: as it was still raining, we took some pics in the characteristic tunnel of Albisola Superiore. 

The reception was in Alassio, at Essaouira Beach, an absolutely cool location with an Oriental taste.

We could feel the joy in every single moment we spent with the couple and their loved ones, from the aperitivo in the terrace till the very end. 

One of the best moments was the traditional cutting of the cake, right by the sea, where a nice corner with the sugared almonds had been prepared by the wedding planner Daniela Vezzoso.

And, finally, it was time for the couple and their families and friends to make a wish and release small water candles onto the sea, an ancient Ligurian tradition: they say that if the light of your candle stays on for long, your wish will be very likely to come true . We do believe that Eleonora and Serena’s candles went the farthest.
