Wedding Photographer: Villa Rombolino, Tuscany: Matt & Ash

Amy was the wedding photographer at Villa Rombolino, Tuscany, Italy for Matt & Ash’s wedding.

This wedding was purely magical in every way. I arrived at Villa Rombolino, a private villa in Tuscany’s Val d’Orcia on a beautiful September day. The Bride was absolutely breath-taking, the Groom handsome, the place amazing, the Bridesmaids were all gorgeous and it had all been arranged by Elia from Super Tuscan Wedding Planners – we were in for a treat.

Rain did threaten but held off just before the ceremony which left us with the most wonderful sky. As the sun set, the sky turned bright red. I can’t find enough gushy words to describe this one so I’ll leave you with the images. Oh, perhaps I should say that it has been featured on international blog Style Me Pretty – that’s kinda’ cool hey?!

Love.

The little apricots with a blob of mascarpone are my favourites but you know, look at the little radishes too. Who would have thought that a whole radish would taste so good!

Wedding Photographer: Foreigner’s Club, Sorrento: Barry & Louise

Amy was the photographer in the Cloisters and at The Foreigner’s Club, Sorrento, Italy for Barry & Louise’s wedding.

Do you like the new-look blog? Apparently, WordPress have stopped supporting the old theme so it was time to update!

Skip back to the end of August 2014 and a very hot day in Sorrento. This time for Liverpudlian-couple, Barry & Louise, and I have to say, one of the most chilled-out couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing! Views from the hotel where they both got ready were wonderful and then it was to the Cloisters for the ceremony. After a photo-shoot around town we joined the rest of the guests at The Foreigner’s Club where the party was already in full-swing. Here we go:

Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Ric & Claire

Amy was the photographer at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Ric & Claire’s wedding.

I think I need to buy an apartment in Sorrento for the summer months! I always say hello to Mount Vesuvius as I pass her and start to get excited that I’m almost in Sorrento again! Ric and Claire were such a fun couple that I just remember laughing all day long. Perfect weather once again and I was back at the very beautiful Villa Antiche Mura and working alongside villa owner Michele, who ensures that the couple’s every whim is catered for on the day.

The Grand Hotel La Favourita is such a great place to get ready as it has a wonderful cocktail bar that I love to work in. The Cloisters are always a winner and a photoshoot around town is such good fun. Food at the villa is amazing, possibly only topped by the stunning views. Take a peek:

Wedding Photographer: Villa Belpoggio, Tuscany: Charles & Anita

Amy was the wedding photographer at Villa Belpoggio, Tuscany, Italy for Charles & Anita’s wedding.

Closing my eyes and taking myself away from mid-winter for a while and instead to mid-July. At the top of a Tuscan hill, Charles & Anita tied the knot in the most beautiful surroundings. Villa Belpoggio was a new location for me and I instantly fell in love with it. The ceremony took place in the shade of the trees, aperitivi was in a stunning courtyard whilst the wedding breakfast was next to the lit pool over-looking the vineyard. What really stood out for me about this wedding was the wonderful table settings and extra little details. Lots of inspiration for Bride’s & Groom’s to be!

Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Stuart & Sarah

Amy was the photographer at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Stuart & Sarah’s wedding.

Mentally whisking myself back to a beautiful, hot day in Sorrento for the gorgeous wedding of Stuart & Sarah in mid-July (I know, I know – I’ve never been so behind with my blog but we have just moved house!)

The best make-up girl out there, Zoe Graham, did Sarah’s make-up for her. She looked so gorgeous. The Cloisters looked lovely too as Sarah had opted for a white carpet aisle rather than the usual red. After the ceremony, Group Shots under the shady Cloisters and a fun photo-shoot around town, we headed to Villa Antiche Mura – one of Sorrento’s most impressive wedding venues.

After the meal and speeches, the staff laid out the tastiest-looking desert table (I did have a little taste ;-) That was followed by lots of partying and even a Photo Booth. Loved it!
