Weddings in Florence

Have you visited Florence? It’s such a beautiful city and an absolute must if you’re coming over to Italy.

I had written a paragraph or two about Weddings in Florence in my wedding destination guide to Tuscany and Umbria but really, there’s so much to write about Florence alone that I have now dedicated a complete page to it. So, if you’re considering Florence for your Italy wedding, have a read: wedding photographer in Florence.

Vintage Wedding Photography

So-called ‘Vintage Wedding Photography’ has taken off over the last couple of years. I’ve been asked a fair number of questions about this trend by Brides over the last few months, and so I figured it would be a good idea write some things down. Rather than a blog post, I have added it as a featured article above.

I was keen to make the point that the ‘vintage look’ of the photographs is normally added in post-processing (unless the photographer is using vintage equipment etc.) Therefore, if you are planning a vintage wedding, you don’t have to limit your photographer choice to only those who advertise themselves as vintage photographers. Go for the photographer whose images you love and discuss the final look that you would like your photos to take on with your photographer in the lead up to the wedding.

I’d be keen to hear your thoughts.

A Very Special Moment

Weddings days are brimming with wonderful moments that must be captured. When the Father of the Bride walks into the room and sees his daughter dressed as a bride for the first time, I often wish that time would just stand still. Let Dad revel in the moment for just a little longer. Before you know it, time has moved on and the bride is rushing around making the final touches to her hair and finding someone to carry her lip gloss for her! Lucky there’s a good photographer there hey!

Of all the magical and memorable moments that I have captured over the last 6 years, the one of Richard surprising Rachel is something that I’ll never forget.

Richard didn’t play the guitar and he certainly didn’t sing. In the months leading up to their wedding day at Tenuta di Lupinari in Tuscany, Richard had secret guitar lessons. He arranged with Jazz musicians Marco Marconi Trio that he would use their sound system and totally surprise Rachel and the guests by leaving his seat, picking up the guitar and singing to her. The song of course, had to be, their special song. Have you got goose bumps yet? Read on, you will have soon.

I mean, really, blokes just don’t do this kind of thing do they?! First of all Rachel nearly keeled over in shock – what, you, you’re going to what – but you don’t know how to play the guitar! You’re really going to sing our song, for me, in front of everyone!

Uh-oh, he really is!

Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God, can’t believe he’s going to do this!

Richard had to really concentrate.

Then Rach just freaked out. Well, you would wouldn’t you?!

It all got too much for pretty much everyone witnessing this special, special moment but, especially for Rach.

Something Changed by Pulp:

When we woke up that morning we had no way of knowing, that in a matter of hours we’d change the way we were going. Where would I be now if we’d never met? Would I be singing this song to someone else instead? I dunno but like you said something changed.

New Features Section

Look up? A new Features section has appeared. Right now there is just one article listed but that won’t be the case for long.

The first article that I have written is about Wedding Planners. Have a read and then let me know your thoughts. Did you hire a Wedding Planner for your wedding? Can you recommend them? Perhaps you are a Wedding Planner. If so, you might have more benefits to tell us about that I haven’t mentioned – leave a comment if that’s the case.

Look forward to hearing from you.
