Wedding Photographer: Anghiari: Leo & Holly

Amy was the wedding photographer in Anghiari, Tuscany, Italy for Leo & Holly’s wedding.

I was super-excited to photograph Leo & Holly’s big day as it was just down the road from where I live in a beautiful town, just over the Umbrian border and into Tuscany, called Anghiari. I had been to Anghiari on several occasions and so relished the thought of photographing a wedding in this impressive little town. The wedding itself took place at the most magical little church in the hills behind the town and the Bride got ready at the venue where the reception took place afterwards – Relais Il Pozzetto. A stunning place in the hills about 20 minutes from Anghiari and just 1km from the church.

Thanks so much to Carine from Il Pozzetto for such wonderful hospitality. Here are some pages of Leo & Holly’s gorgeous album:

A wonderful and fun day in a VERY beautiful place. What more could I ask for! Thanks, Amy x

Wedding Photographer: Villa Catignano & Siena, Tuscany: Richard & Biljana

Amy was the wedding photographer at Villa Catignano & Siena, Tuscany, Italy for Richard & Biljana’s wedding.

Back to what I think is a winning Tuscany wedding day combination – Siena and Villa Catignano. It doesn’t matter how many times I go to Siena, I always feel excited when I enter into the main piazza. If you’ve not been, go. That’s my best advice.

Biljana, whose family are from Moldova, and Richard from the UK were married in the beautiful Town Hall, Siena. We had time for some photographs in and around town afterwards with the Bridesmaids in tow before we headed back to the wonderful Villa Catignano. This is one of the venues that I would recommend if you are considering a wedding in Tuscany. It’s just gorgeous:

Wedding Photographer: Tuscany

The blog post that I wrote and published yesterday about the beautiful wedding of Richard & Nasrin at La Foce has been so well-received that I thought I’d quickly follow it up with Part 2. The day after the wedding, in the early evening, I met up with Richard and Nas again for a photo shoot in Tuscany. We just had an hour or two and were so incredibly lucky with the light.

We spent the first part of the shoot in the gorgeous town of San Quirico d’Orcia and after that we literally drove around and found places on the side of busy and fast-moving roads or on private driveways! We ended the shoot with a walk off the beaten track to a stunning little chapel literally in the middle of nowhere. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Wedding Photographer: La Foce, Tuscany: Richard & Nasrin

Amy was the wedding photographer at La Foce, Tuscany, Italy for Richard & Nasrin’s wedding.

This beautiful wedding took place in one of the most stand-out venues of my entire 10 years of doing this job. La Foce in the Val d’orcia is simply stunning. Look it up online and you’ll see a fabulous aerial shot of it (unfortunately one that I couldn’t get!)

Richard, Nasrin, their daughters and their friends and families had come over from Australia and were absolutely smitten with the place – as you would be. Take a look:

Wedding Photographer: Casa Cornacchi, Tuscany: Chris & Sarah

Amy was the wedding photographer at Casa Cornacchi, Tuscany, Italy for Chris & Sarah’s wedding.

… And so the heatwave continued on .. an on .. and on .. until .. the wettest of wet days in beautiful Tuscany when it all turned grey, the storms were violent and the rain poured heavier than ever before. The wonderful wedding of Chris & Sarah and the very beautiful Casa Cornacchi: despite the soggy nature of the day, the wedding was absolutely full of fun, laughter and tears and indeed the weather did behave for the key bits of the day. Take a look:

Casa Cornacchi, a wonderful venue and snapped as the clouds cleared.
