Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at The Pantheon & Casina di Macchia Madama, Rome, Italy for the wedding of Leo & Korie.
There are a few buildings in the world that are simply awe-inspiring. The Pantheon is one of them. Leo & Korie were fortunate enough to be able to marry in the Pantheon on Friday in a beautiful ceremony. It was one of those ‘pinch yourself’ events which happen so rarely in your lifetime. I felt especially privileged since this is also my favourite building in the world & to have exclusive use of it whilst crowds of hundreds, possibly thousands were held back outside by barriers.
Afterwards, the families & guests were transported to the gorgeous Casina di Macchia Madama Villa, close to the Olympic Stadium for the reception whilst we took a small detour to the Trevi Fountain for a few extra shots.
On with some images!

Leo, his father, brother & groomsmen on their way!
Colours, textures, architecture – pure Italy in my opinion (oh, & the groom of course!)
The dress goes on
Because we’ve so many images to select from still, we’ve skipped some in the timeline to get to a shot showing the incredible setting for the ceremony. Leo & Korie are at the altar here, the photograph shows wonderfully, the scale and beauty of this building.
A moment during the ceremony. Priests don’t get any more helpful than this. A refreshing change from the attitude of some we’ve encountered in the UK previously.
Just after the ceremony & we had some time for photographs as the public were re-admitted. The staff were wonderful in keeping crowds back behind us until we were done.
Amy is down in the crowds there somewhere – ready for confetti. I’m following – you can get a real feel for the atmosphere here.
By the Trevi Fountain. We did photograph by the fountain as well, but this is just a little different ;)
Fun back at Casina di Macchia Madama.
Darkness approaching rapidly. The Italian Cup Final was being played in the nearby Olympic Stadium during this period. Every now and then you could hear huge cheers when either team scored. It just added to the amazing atmosphere.
One of many lovely captures during the dances.
A lovely, lovely couple & a perfect day. Thank you to everyone for their hospitality! – Andy
