Samantha & Matteo

Samantha and Matteo, the soon-to-be-wed couple, came back from Milan, to their Umbrian family in Casteldilago, to celebrate their big day. The wedding troupe skipped between the church of Saint Valentine, at the very top of the hill, to the village museum, from the public garden to the local osteria.

Italians sure know how to throw a party. But they’re even better at enjoying it! Everyone was visibly committed to celebrate the newlyweds, the food was incredible – but that’s a given in Italy – and all was tied up and put together with such care, that we felt more like guests and part of the gang, than actual wedding sketchers.

A big thank you to Let’s Amore, the wedding planners that let us in to this wonderful celebration!

A Samantha e o Matteo, os noivos do casamento que iamos desenhar, vieram de Milão até à sua família em Casteldilago, na Umbria, para celebrar o grande dia. A trupe de convidados circulava pelas ruas estreitas de Casteldilago, entre a igreja de São Valentim, no topo da colina, até ao museu da aldeia, desde o jardim público, até à osteria local.

Os Italianos sabem bem como organizar uma festa. Mas são melhores ainda a disfrutá-la! Todos estavam visivelmente dedicados a celebrar os recém-casados, a comida estava incrível – mas isso é dado adquirido na Itália – e tudo ligava de uma forma harmoniosa e cuidadosa, de tal modo que nos sentimos mais como convidados e parte da trupe, do que wedding sketchers

Um grande obrigado à Let’s Amore, as organizadoras de casamentos que nos convidaram para esta celebração magnífica.

I was born on the southwestern-most tip of Europe, in Lagos, Portugal. A childhood of legos and sandcastles led me to architecture school, but an adolescence of doodling drove me to sketching and later to illustration. I like to sketch, to travel and to chop vegetables into tiny manageable bits. I also like maps. The older the better!
