One of the many wonderful parts of my work is that I get to photograph weddings in the most magnificent places! Will and Chiara booked me to capture their destination wedding in Tuscany Italy. After meeting a number of Italian photographers they felt the language and cultural barrier may prove a hindrance on the wedding day, and that they wanted to be able to relax knowing their photographer understood them and their brief.
They chose Borgo Stomennano as their reception venue, a little piece of Tuscan Italy tucked away among rolling hills, approximately 10km outside of Siena. The grand wedding venue is surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, with plenty of breathtaking features inside and out! It was an absolute dream to photograph their wedding in such a picturesque location.
Chiara and Will had the ceremony at San Galgano Abbey, one of the most well know open sky monasteries in Tuscany, with the sun beaming down on them. I won’t lie it was a challenge working for 16 hours in 40 degree heat, but the wonderful images I got to capture made it worth every second.
If you are planning a wedding in Italy (or anywhere abroad!), I would love to hear from you!
