Amy was the Wedding Photographer at Castello di Montegridolfo, Emilia Romagna, Italy for the wedding of Kerry & Vanessa.
Having photographed a wedding at Castello di Montegridolfo previously and therefore knowing what a fantastic place it is, I was really looking forward to going back there for the spectacular wedding of Kerry & Vanessa on Tuesday the 13th of July. When I arrived, Vanessa was having her hair and make-up done wearing traditional red pyjamas (having had to sleep in them) whilst Kerry and the boys were all ready to go and were doing their best to stay cool – the temperatures already soaring into the high 30s.
Kerry and Vanessa’s attention to detail was second-to-none as they treated their guests to not one but two ‘aperitivi,’ a photo montage of their childhoods and blossoming relationship, a same-day edit from the wonderful videographers (who had flown in from Hong Kong) and a brilliantly-choreographed first dance.
The 10-course wedding breakfast had to be seen (even better tasted!) to be believed and the surprise fireworks were magnificent. What a day!

Photo time :)
I had to post this one. The carved watermelons are always good but these are incredibly good!
I love how in Italy you’ll often find characters amongst the staff. This guy kept everyone entertained for ages – throwing glasses & bottles whilst making cocktails.
A hug for the winner of the ‘catch the boquet’ competition!
The presentation of old photos of Kerry & Vanessa was hilarious.
Arriving for dinner.
Wow – absolutely loved my day. I know just how much hard work went in to organizing this wedding and I’m sure Kerry & Vanessa will feel that it was worth every last bit of effort. All the best folks – I’ll be in touch sometime soon.
