Amy was the wedding photographer in Florence, Tuscany, Italy at the Sala Rossa for Adrian & Yin’s wedding.
Florence on Friday the 26th of November was wet, gray and miserable. Sunday the 28th of November was wetter, grayer and more miserable. Saturday the 27th of November however – Adrian & Yin’s wedding day in Florence – was beautiful and blue and dry and crisp and clear and generally just gorgeous :-) Lucky isn’t the word. The Grand Hotel Baglioni in central Florence was where the reception took place. It has the most magnificent views of Florence from its roof terrace and the couple and their guests could stand out and admire the view for the hour before they performed their traditional Chinese tea ceremony and then sat down for the wedding breakfast.
I need to talk more about The Sala Rossa (Red Room). It’s in the Palazzo Vecchio – the building that has the replica statue of David at the entrance and is the ‘Town Hall’ room where civil weddings take place in Florence. The walk-through and staircase that lead to the Sala Rossa are pretty unassuming which makes the WOW when you enter the room even more of a WOW! At Ade and Yin’s wedding I stood at the entrance as the guests entered the room and captured their reactions.
Told you the weather was good! The Ponte Vecchio is one of Florence’s principle landmarks:
Look at this amazing room! This is where Yin got ready. Isn’t is gorgeous?
Ade came to Yin’s hotel to collect her and they travelled together to the Sala Rossa.
I love watching Bride & Groom’s sign the register. I remember it well myself. You just can’t seem to sign your name. You can’t remember your signature and if you can, it just comes out wrong and you squiggle something random!
The stunning Sala Rossa:
Love this. That’s the famous Carousel in the background in Piazza degli Strozzi:

And again. The Best Man is speaking here:
