Me & Simafra
LIKE FAIRY TALES
It was the first thing we thought of when we met them. A fairy tale.
Sara, Simafra, Enea and Martino are a family that live in the heart of Tuscany. Their approach to life is simple and beautiful and one of the first things that won us over was their close and intense contact with nature.
Ours is a relationship born and raised on instagram, so much so that the first time we met in person, it was precisely at the wedding. Usually we would need one or more meetings before the marriage, but immediately between us were created an alchemy and an empathy that made any presentation superfluous.
I do not know if you believe in destiny, but could not go in any other way.
We were destined to meet them.
We were destined to tell you their story.
ENEA AND MARTINO DRESSES
You were born together,
and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each one of your be alone,
Even as the strings of the lute are alone though they quiver
with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not
in each other’s shadow.
