She was absolutely gorgeous in her white dress all decorated with pearl and Swarowsky, very elegant. A simple white roses bouquet was absolutely perfect for the occasion as the dress was the most important part of her look.
After the preparation, five minutes by car from her suite in Via Sistina, driving through Piazza Venezia and Via dei Fori imperiali and here she is in front of the church with its this magic setting, where Joel was waiting for her.
Once the ceremony ended, few pictures with the family and then all together to the Colosseo for some stunning shots . It’s always fun there as a marriage is warmly welcomed by tourists, romans and also some original gladiators…
After that Belinda and Joel followed Diego Taroni of Photo27 for a photo tour to St.Peter Church and Piazza del Popolo, while guests reached the restaurant located in a beautiful villa inside Villa Borghese with a stunning view of the city, where Prosecco and canapés were waiting for them.
