Amy was the wedding photographer at Villa Catignano, Tuscany, Italy for Edward & Eleanore’s wedding.
I hadn’t photographed a wedding at Villa Catignano for a couple of years and was really looking forward to going back. When Ed called me and asked if it was possible for me to arrive 2 hours early to try and avoid the forecast evening rain, it wasn’t a problem at all.
Soon after arriving and meeting gorgeous Ele, my all-important job was magnified as Ele had been very poorly last summer. She explained that the one thing that had got her through her darkest days was the dreams about her wedding in Tuscany. Should a miracle happen, one day, she might just end up in Tuscany, with all of her family and friends around her, marrying Ed in a glorious setting. Well that miracle did happen and it happened in style!
So, obviously Ed is a very lucky guy but then again, Ele is too! Ed looked so handsome in his suit and had some great mates running around after him all day! A really humble and caring kind of guy.
Not only was Ele one of the nicest people I’ve ever met – totally humble and constantly smiling, she has also set up her own charity. Whereas most of us would visit Africa and leave feeling desperately sorry for the people, Ellie came home and set up Challenge Africa. Please visit the website – it’s a great read and an incredibly worthy cause.
Ed, Ele and their son Josh, had a fabulous day. The orange of Villa Catignano makes for a wonderful backdrop, or turn around and the view over to Siena isn’t bad either! See what you think:
Ele’s shoes and veil hanging over the back of a chair – I didn’t have to move a thing!
Ed and the guys making their way down to the garden where the ceremony took place.
Meanwhile, Ele’s team do some final tweaks.

A beautiful procession.
The heavens did open but, only at the very end of the ceremony. Good plan to bring things forward! Once the storm had passed, the evening weather was perfect.

Whilst the storm passed over, guests were treated to aperativi which included fried quail’s eggs.
Ele asked me to be patient – apparently she’s not very photogenic!!!
Isn’t this gorgeous?
This colourful family missed the big group shot so I took them on their own. I love this one!
Great table plan.
A lovely moment during the speeches.
Such a wonderful day and I hope that you’ll love your photos; they’ll always prove that it wasn’t just a dream. I’ll be in touch VERY soon folks. Amy xxGoogle+
