Photography and love at first sight
First of all you should know that Lorena and Alfredo coming from Torino, are both photography fans and they met to a Photography workshop who both joined.
Lorena and Alfredo got engaged after few months from this fatal meeting and their love grew up together with their passion for photography.
They decided to join another workshop in Casale Monferrato just very close to wonderful vines hills of Asti and Barolo.
Workshop was held by Maren Ollmann and Piero Ottaviano from Torino famous photographer of Ollmann-Ottaviano Studio.
Theme of the 3 days workshop was black and white, portrait and nude and it was held in San Sebastiano da Po Castle.
This great venue is inside a little village in the very heart of Piemonte countryside. It is located on top of a hill of 313 mt of altitude with a stunning view on Vercelli plain, Po river – the longest Italian river – and of course wonderful vines hills.

San Sebastiano da Po Castle is very peculiar kind of castle, it is very different for the others, just beautiful and imperfect, this is its real appeal!
“Our visitors complete it with their imagination and fantasy” – say Garone family owner of the castle who wanted to keep the rustic atmosphere of ancient times.
Side of the castle there is a little church where catholic ceremonies can be held.
It is just on the main square of the little village of San Sebastiano da Po here you could feel the real charm of a country village. From the exit of the church you could enjoy a great view on hills.
The castle can host up to 300 people and has also 28 rooms for bride and groom and close family or friends’ accommodation together with a bed and breakfast service.
Most of all castle offers great areas for aperitif in the courtyard or garden which could be the perfect frames for your wedding pictures.
