What a cute vintage wedding in Tuscany. It was a pleasure working on this wedding which took place on the Chianti hills of Tuscany near Florence. A beautiful September day and the perfect light for wedding photographs. As a wedding photographer in Tuscany I am always looking for that perfect moment 'the golden hour' and on this wedding it really shines trough. The way the bride and groom, their kids and all the guests were dressed gave a really nice touch to these wedding pictures. Beautiful flowers and decorations were provided by the one and only Sonja from FunkyBird Wedding Design to lift everything up on an even higher level and made this tuscany wedding even prettier. The whole day was perfectly organised by the wonderful Roos from Trouwen in Toscane.
How can anyone resist working in a place where the famous Mona Lisa was born! Yes I am talking about the mysteriously smiling woman portrayed by Leonardo da Vinci. The surroundings you see from the terrace are the ones depicted on the background of that same famous painting.
As a wedding photographer in Tuscany I have privilege to visit nice amount of wedding locations and one of the locations is Villa Vignamaggio. I was really amazed with this beautiful Tuscan Villa, so I had this location in mind for photoshoot for quite some time but we somehow never got round to organising something here. When we finally did contact them they were so incredibly enthusiastic and on the day itself did seriously everything to accommodate our needs, that I consider this the best photoshoot experience yet.
So on this sunny day we headed out with an entire team of experts to Villa Vignamaggio and did some seriously romantic stuff. Luscious creamy peonies and white o’hara roses were main choice for Sonja from FunkyBird Wedding Design and really complimented the uber-romantic wedding dress by Regina Schrecker which was shown in New York Bridal Week 2015 as a part of the new collection.
Thanks to the wonderful kitchen and home supply shop Bartolini Firenze we managed to get our hands on a Vera Wang dinner set and real golden cutlery from Cristofle - Jardin d' Eden Collection. So a BIG thank you to them for trusting us with such delicate table ware.
We all really had a lot of fun that day and I hope everyone’s efforts shines through. Can’t wait to do the next one!

What a great wedding in Tuscany! Beautiful weather and a couple in love, what else can you ask for. In a cute little Borgo on the hills of Tuscany with the garden full of blossoming flowers at the beginning of june, it was the perfect day to get married in Italy. The bride and groom had the desire to enjoy an informal lunch before having a few photos taken in the beautiful little town of San Donato in Poggio. On that day I was working alongside the creative and fun girls from Gattotigre Wedding Videography who were perfect companions on such a great day. We all tried to capture every little moment and all the details from this small town, the ceremony in a charming little chapel and all the beautiful corners of the Tuscan hills. When we came back to the Borgo we were welcomed by the beautiful flower and table decorations made by the best wedding florist in Tuscany Sonja from FunkyBird Wedding Design who made the whole wedding even prettier! As the night was slowly falling and guest where seated at the table with many string lights hanging over the tables, everyone enjoyed the Tuscan and Italian specialties with a fine glass of local chianti Wine. The final photographs I took were of the beautiful wedding couple and their first dance in front of their family and friends. After that the party continue until early morning.
A special thanks for the great organisation goes to Roos from Trouwen in Toscane who did such a great job fitting all things together. Being a wedding photographer in Tuscany is a great job because I always get to work with so many creative and talented people who are passionate about their job!
