For Tina and Chris, from India and the UK, it was important that both of their background cultures would be incorporated into their wedding celebration. They decided to split the wedding into two days, celebrating first with an Indian ceremony and on the second day with a traditional English wedding. Tina and Chris chose beautiful Castello di Meleto for their destination wedding, a 13th century castle in the heart of Italy’s Chianti region, and their elegant two day bash was captured by David Bastianoni, who has a few more details for us below about the day. We love the contrast between the two sets of photos!

“Since Tina and Chris come from two different cultures their decision was to celebrate both traditions at the same location, Castello di Meleto, but on two different days. For their Indian wedding they wanted bright and bold colours whereas on the second day, the English wedding, they went for a romantic, soft and elegant celebration, in contrast with the previous day. Cocktail hour was held in the castle ballroom with dinner outside in the garden, with lights and flower arrangements making the atmosphere magical. Their two day wedding portrayed the diverse traditions and rituals of each culture, showing their similarities as well as differences. We tried to tell their story with a chromatic difference for immediate visual impact: on one hand the bright, bold colors of India and on the other the elegant and soft black and white of England. I was delighted when Tina and Chris’ wedding album, in addition to winning first place WPPI 2016 Las Vegas Wedding Album division, also led to a WPPI Grand Award.”
