Andy & Amy were the Wedding photographers at Siena Town Hall & Fattoria di Corsignano, Tuscany, Italy for the wedding of Justin & Susan.
Siena Town Hall – in the middle of our favourite town in Tuscany, was the setting for Justin & Susan’s wedding on Thursday. Although both Australian, they live in London and Justin had made the journey out to Tuscany in their car via the Oktoberfest in Munich. Susan arrived more conventionally by airline and their party week at Fattoria di Corsignano was well and truly underway by the day of the wedding!
In Australia, it’s quite common for the bridal party to disappear with the photographer(s) for a while and their day was no exception: they’d planned a walk through Siena to a well-known coffee bar and we also stopped for some shots in the Tuscany countryside on the drive back to Fattoria di Corsignano, where they re-joined their families & friends.
Justin’s brother & sister had their weddings photographed by an amazing & extremely well-known Australian photographer – someone we know – fortunately, we didn’t know this until later on that evening. No pressure then! :)
Here’s an idea of what we’ve taken:
The happy Groom.
…and with Mum & Dad at the Fattoria di Corsignano.
We think it’s impossible to take a bad photograph of Susan.

The grand entrance into the wedding room of Siena Town Hall. It’s difficult to see on this web-sized version but I love her expression. Also note the guest who is photographing Justin’s reaction – so few people ever think to watch the groom’s face at this point and it’s always one of the highlights. Also, Amy & I are ever-conscious to stay out of each others’ photographs but I’ve not quite managed here it (back right.)
Doesn’t Susan have the best laugh ever?!
Fast forward to a hilarious moment in Nannini’s coffee bar, Siena.

There was a beautiful sunset although it lasted a matter of minutes. We quickly set-up an off-camera flash and captured this – just as you see it now – seconds before the colour had gone completely.
We got home at 2am having seen 3 wild boar, a porcupine, a deer & an owl within 10 minutes of leaving the wedding! What a wonderful day & an absolute pleasure to photograph. Safe drive home folks – speak to you soon! – AndyGoogle+
