Wedding in Tuscany | Castello di Santa Maria Novella | Bryllup i Toscana

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. 

Cute wedding on the hills of Florence

Such a cute wedding on the hills of Florence in this beautiful Borgo with a lovely couple Erika and Albert. Beautiful decorated wedding ceremony with the stunning view, also we have been lucky to have a perfect spring day with those beautiful clouds and blue sky. I love the photos I did with the couple, it was such a pretty sunset which is always great for a wedding photos. I always advise my couples to do the photos of two of them if its possible in that period of the day.

Romantic Borgo Wedding in Tuscany

Such a pretty wedding in Tuscany at this beautiful Borgo with a lovely couple Nerina and Matteo. As a wedding photographer it is always nice seeing your couple so much in love that they can’t wait to get married. I have to say that Sonja from our sister company FunkyBird Wedding Design  who do wedding flowers and decoration did incredible job with all the flowers, from the beautiful bridal and bridesmaids bouquets as well with super romantic wedding dinner table which was on the terrace with the stunning view on Tuscan landscapes.

Romantic Castle Wedding in Tuscany

Laura and Sean are the most adorable couple. They flew all the way from New York to Tuscany to celebrate their wedding in Castello di Montegufoni. I love this castle with its extravagant rooms and whimsical decorations. It is definitely a unique location with a lot of different spaces to host all the various events of the day. The flowers were as fun as the bride and groom themselves, big bold proteas featured in the bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets, whereas smaller ‘blushing bride’ proteas were use in the crown for the flower girl. The ceremony was kept in the small courtyard and adorned with olive green arrangements after which they had a generous cocktail in the Italian garden. Because the property is quite big we had a lot of fun walking around finding nice backdrops for the couple photos and when the sun set, Tuscany really showed her magic light. The dinner was set up in the big court entrance of the castle with one long table and string lights overhead. Wonderful Tuscan food was served throughout the evening accompanied by great music. All in all this was a day to remember and I for one am very happy to have taken part in this.
