Wedding photographer: La Sala Rossa, Borgo San Jacapo & Hotel Continentale, Florence, Tuscany, Italy: Dave & Kate

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at La Sala Rossa, Borgo San Jacapo & Hotel Continentale, Florence, Tuscany, Italy for the wedding of Dave & Kate.

Wow – what a beautiful and interesting day for us on Saturday in Florence (Firenze to the Italians!) Dave & Kate were married in the Town Hall in a special, historic room called the Sala Rossa. Afterwards with a slight detour to a bar in Piazza della Signoria they walked through the city and across the Ponte Vecchio to a very trendy, fashion-styled restaurant called Borgo San Jacapo. As you’ll see from the image below, it’s on the side of the river Arno with a wonderful view of the famous bridge.

After dinner, everyone made their way back across the Ponte Vecchio to the Hotel Continentale, which has a fabulous roof-top terrace (under canopy) with amazing views of the city.

It’s a really stunning city to visit and the day was paced perfectly for everyone involved. On with the images:

  1. Dave and Kate
    this is a replica of how I want my wedding! Did you book everything yourselves? if so could you give me some info on how you went about things?
    Many Thanks

  2. Hi, we used a company called Romeo and Juliet weddings to book the ceremony, hairdresser etc but the restaurant and sky bar were booked directly as they are owned by the same group of hotels. Google the hotel lungarno and they will all come up. That way we only had one point of contact and one bill.

    The wedding planner can pretty much sort out all the details for you with regards to flowers etc but if you speak Italian, there is a great florist near the Borgo San Jacapo restaurant. The hotel and restaurant managers were brilliant and spoke very good english. They can be contacted via the website. I would recommend visiting in person to check things out however, be aware that you won’t be able to book the wedding ceremony in the town hall until 6 months before.
