Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Brian & Laura

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

Brian & Laura’s wedding was the last for me in 2015 – my biggest and best year of photographing weddings. It was also at a venue that I had grown to love over the years and the one where I generally work more than anywhere else. It was going to be a great end to my season.

I had read a book, that I finished on the train travelling to Sorrento, about a girl who had fallen in love with a Vicar. When Laura told me that Brian was an Irish Minister I just knew that this was going to be an extra-special one. It didn’t disappoint. Laura, Brian and their friends and family were so much fun and welcomed me into their party like a guest. I loved every minute of photographing them and when my time for photographing was up, I put down my cameras and danced the night away with them. The train-journey the next day was … absolutely awful as I nursed the hangover from hell. Hey ho. It was worth it :-)

Another wedding season successfully negotiated and another year of doing my hobby for my job. I’m writing this post as I’ve just finished my 2016 wedding season – my 10th! Here’s to my 11th and the blog posts for this year’s wedding will start soon. Thanks so much to Laura & Brian and huge congratulations on the birth of beautiful little Dylan. Amy x

Wedding Photographer: Casale de’Pasquinelli, Lucca: Anthony & Meghan

Amy was the wedding photographer at Casale de’Pasquinelli, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy for Anthony & Meghan’s wedding.

Anthony, Meghan and their family and friends had travelled from the US to celebrate this beautiful wedding in my favourite Italian city, Lucca. With lots of time in the city for photographs after the ceremony, I was in my element. The open-air ceremony was in the stunning garden of Palazzo Pfanner – certainly worth the entrance fee if you’re ever in Lucca.

We drove about 20 minutes to the north of the city into the mountains to Casale de’pasquinelli. Take a look:

A really lovely day and the portrait image above (4 up) of the Bride & Groom walking under the huge pine tree is one of my all-time favourite images. Thank you so much, Amy x

Wedding Photographer: Umbria: Nick & Becky

Amy was the wedding photographer in Umbria, Italy for Nick & Becky’s wedding.

I’m always trying to work close to home so this was a real stand-out wedding for me. Not only because you could almost pinpoint my house in the background of the group shots but also because the couple were fabulous and the day in general was absolutely AMAZING. Nick & Becky chose Becky’s Uncle’s house for their wedding which just so happens to have the most perfect little church just 100 metres or so away from it along a pretty little path. A local agriturismo just a couple of kms away was the perfect place for the reception meal – super-tasty, typical, Umbrian cuisine.

I am often asked to remember single stand-out moments from all of the weddings that I’ve photographed over the years (about 350 of them) and I always find it quite hard to do as there are just so many. However, I now always answer with a stand-out favourite moment from Nick & Becky’s wedding: when Philip Pope sang Nessun Dorma. The performance and the reaction of the crowd to the performance made every hair stand on end. It was magical.

I feel so privileged to have photographed this wedding. I loved getting to know Nick & Becky and we plan to meet up when they next come over. It was certainly a very, very special day. Thanks, Amy x

Wedding Photographer: Certosa di Pontignano & Villa Catignano, Tuscany: Nigel & Brenda

Amy was the wedding photographer at Certosa di Pontignano and Villa Catignano, Tuscany, Italy for Nigel & Brenda’s wedding.

Villa Catignano is one of my favourite venues and certainly one that I recommend regularly. I love the colours of the buildings, the rustic charm and the elegant gardens. Nigel & Brenda had their ceremony just a few miles down the road from the villa at Certosa di Pontignano. A beautiful church with cloisters and a very special chapel.

I have to say that professionally, I think that this wedding is one of the best that I ever produced. The light, backgrounds and wonderful style of the Bride just all came together beautifully. Take a look:

Wedding Photographer: Streamcombe Farm, Somerset: Duncan & Caroline

Amy was the wedding photographer at Streamcombe Farm, Somerset, UK for Duncan & Caroline’s wedding.

I love coming back to the UK for weddings and this one was a real cracker. The perfect quintessential ‘English’ country wedding. Beautiful country church for the ceremony followed by the wedding reception on a farm. Gorgeous florals, a naked cake and lawn games – this wedding was like the most eye-catching Pinterest Board.

It was very special for me since the Bridesmaid, chief-organiser and Sister-of-the-Bride was one of my very best friends, Charlotte. Take a look:
