As a Tuscany wedding photographer I really enjoyed working on this intimate wedding in a beautiful part of Tuscany called Val d’Orcia. Diana and Chandra decided to elope together instead of having a big event back home. They had rented a lovely country home and held the ceremony in the garden overlooking the valley. Diana was wearing this stunning rose-gold gown from Pronovias which matched her bubbly personality. After the ceremony we took some lovely pictures around the house while the dinner was being prepared by a personal chef. They were both so warm and friendly and clearly very much in love. I am very exited to share this shoot with you all.
As a wedding photographer in Tuscany it was such a joy working on this lovely wedding. Caroline and Anders celebrated their wedding in Tuscany in the Castello di Santa Maria Novella, a stunning mediaval castle on top of a Tuscan hill with a 360° view over the hills which can be seen from the two towers at either end of the castle. There is something about Nordic people that is fundamentally different from mediterranean folk. They always seem calm, polite and have a more minimalist taste when it comes to design. But the main word that comes to mind when thinking about a Nordic wedding is elegance, such nicely understated elegance. This wedding dress must be one of my all time favourites!! It was hand sewn by the seamstress of the royal opera of Copenhagen non the less, and hundreds of delicate small flowers were hand stitched onto the gown and top. Not very often do we see a long sleeved dress in Tuscany which is a real pity, I mean you just need to look at the photos to understand how beautiful it can look. The men were all dressed ‘black tie’ and the women matched with elegant floor length dresses.
Carolina asked for her wedding ceremony decoration to be mostly white and natural and a bit of colour for the dinner tables. So Sonja the florist from our sister company FunkyBird Wedding Design decided for a small wildflower bouquet of chamomile, lysianthus and saponaria flowers and babies breath flower crowns for the girls. On the altar it was all white clouds of babies breath and white phalaenopsis orchids to add a touch of luxury, dozens of candles gave a magical finish to it all. The tables had a touch or colour to them although we stayed in a neutral nude rose palette and natural shaped arrangements.
I really enjoyed working on this lovely elopement in Tuscany in a beautiful wedding location Castello di Spaltenna in chianti region of Tuscany. Such a great couple Colby & Michael came from USA for their special day. As a wedding photographer in Tuscany I really enjoy working on elopements because the couple and I have lot of time for a photography. Sometimes on a bigger weddings because of the tight schedule I don’t have too much alone time with the couple but in a case like this I am alone with the couple for a few hours and its just fun! Also what is great is that they picked this beautiful wedding location in Tuscany Castello di Spaltenna which is built around 1030 which means it is almost 1000 years old which is incredible! My advise to everybody who are thinking or planning to do elopement in Tuscany or anywhere else is to pick really nice location with a lot of character because it adds some extra beauty to the photographs.
