croce di bibbiano, tuscany : the wedding of pernille and ben

right, i can safely confirm that the Danes are definitely at the top of the gene pool when it comes to looks { you could probably add style in there too }.  so what happens when you have a half Dane, half Thai ex-model bride > a deliriously happy photographer !  Pernille’s beauty is off the charts, inside and out … and as for Ben … well, birds of a feather right ?  Lets kick off this post exactly how the ceremony began … a poem written by one of Ben’s best mates, the uber fab muso Raz Jarby.  with words like these, i hope to hear you belting out some tune on the main stage of Roskilde in the near future.  what a sheer pleasure it was to shoot this beauty of a Tuscan wedding in San Gimignano, at Croce di Bibbiano. bravo ! … bravo limoncello mozarella parmesano spaghetti contutti a la florentina …

“in love”

i guess if you can be in love

you can be outside love

as well as behind and beneath love

maybe even above and around love

whatever is in your love

no one else will fully know of

coz that’s the hidden cabin

you’ve built among the rest of us

a shelter with just enough room for two

neatly furnished with the wonders of being me and you

i imagine how you sit by the fireplace

lit by your first burning kiss

above you there’s a shelf

filled with jokes no one else gets

a couple of paintings are hanging on the wall

one is called trust

and that’s a difficult matter

the other one looks like a silly heartshaped splatter

there’s probably a bed

where you easily rest

with all the words

better left unsaid

and maybe you’ve got a closet

way in the back

where you keep a few things

locked in the past

but one thing i’m pretty sure of, though

is that on each of the four walls

there’s a window

with a view to the world

where life is at

and that’s where you met

try not to forget that

so, i guess what i’m trying to say is this :

sometimes you’ve got to go outside love

to see what lies behind love

don’t expect to know your way around love

that would be beneath love

i don’t think you can ever be above love

but hopefully at the end of the day

a year

and a life

you’ll find that you’re still

in love
