Wedding Photographer: Casale Cardini, Foiano della Chiana, Tuscany: Robert & Arabella

Amy was the wedding photographer at Casale Cardini, Foiano della Chiana, Tuscany, Italy for Robert & Arabella’s wedding.

For early June, this day was absolutely burning hot. The beginning of the heat-wave which went on to be one of the hottest summers on record in Italy. Robert & Arabella had chosen a beautiful house to act as host to their wedding ceremony and reception close to the town of Foiano della Chiana in Tuscany. The courtyard was flooded in very strong light for the entire day until the sun set directly opposite the ceremony and reception location. We had a little respite from the blaze when a small group of us went into the town of Foiano so that Robert & Arabella could sign the official register. I had a little time for a wonderful photo shoot in amongst the ancient streets and used the shade to full effect whilst I had some! Take a look:

Bloomin!

Robert looked great in his light-linen suit – the perfect choice for the weather.

The heat was a killer and the strong sunlight was challenging at times but it was a wonderful day, organised impeccably by Elia and his great team from Super Tuscan Wedding Planners. Thank you Robert & Arabella. Amy x

Wedding Photographer: The Cloisters, Sorrento: Jon & Helen

Amy was the photographer in the Cloisters, Sorrento, Italy for Jon & Helen’s wedding.

Hello! It’s been a while I realise but with my busiest summer of all time, I made the decision early on to save my blog for the winter! So, here we go, I have to transport myself back to a very sunny June day in Sorrento for the wedding of Jon & Helen. It was a really lovely day: the Bride & Groom got ready in separate hotels that were just down the road from each other allowing me to photograph them both getting ready. The Cloisters is always gorgeous for a wedding ceremony and after a short photo shoot around Sorrento old town we all headed up the hill to a restaurant with the most wonderful views. Here we go:

The first of many trips to Sorrento during Summer 2015:
