Wedding photographer: Villa Artimino, Florence, Tuscany, Italy: Alan & Fiona

Andy & Amy were wedding photographers at Villa Artimino, Florence, Tuscan, Italy for the wedding of Alan & Fiona.

Monday & the occasion was Alan & Fiona’s wedding in Artimino near Florence. The villa is probably one of Italy’s grandest – a huge, imposing building on a hillside of olive groves & vineyards and noticeable for its many chimneys. The afternoon of the wedding began with a heavy thunderstorm but once that had cleared it left the air beautifully fresh and revealed the stunning setting for this predominantly-Irish wedding.

It was a very emotional day for a variety of reasons; however, Fiona & Alan were so easy-going, we had time to ‘create’ some images in addition to just capturing what was happening – some of which you’ll see below.

Our day finished with a fireworks display & I headed down into the village of Artimino to photograph from there. We haven’t got remotely close to processing everything yet but here’s a good idea of what to expect :) We’ve also got to say a big “thank you” to Hannah, the lovely young bridesmaid who did such a great job holding our video light!

On with the images:

We had sat in the car waiting for the torrential rain to ease before quickly taking this photograph of the beautiful villa.

Alan not looking as nervous as he was feeling!

Alan & his Dad – one of my particular favourites.

Jimmy Choo makes an appearance!

It’s not often you get such happy-looking images of the youngsters.

A gorgeous image of Fiona.

Here comes the Bride!

Speech time – note: great speech by the Bride as well btw!

Thanks folks for a really enjoyable day. Enjoy the honeymoon & we’ll speak to you soon :)

Wedding photographer: Villa San Filippo, Tuscany, Italy: Carl & Amanda

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at Villa San Filippo, Tuscany, Italy for the wedding of Carl & Amanda.

The weather has been a little unpredictable in Tuscany recently & it was no different for Carl & Amanda’s big day at Villa San Filippo near Barberino Val d’Elsa. A shower during the early part of the afternoon caused a dilemma with the ‘indoors/outdoors’ ceremony but it brightened up soon after and the beautiful outdoor setting was chosen.

Carl & Amanda were wonderful to photograph and their friends & families also helped to make the day as enjoyable for us as it was for them!

There are loads & loads of great images to share – here are just a few:

Carl doesn’t take a bad photo either!

I really love this one of Amanda just a few moments before walking out for the ceremony.

Confetti

You’ll get an idea of the setting with the Tuscan background here.

There’s a story behind this but I think only the Bestman, Ushers & Bridesmaid can tell it.

Beautiful, beautiful flowers, decorations & lights everywhere. This was one of the displays hanging over the terrace tables not long after sunset – yup, it gets dark very quickly here!

Finally, a romantic moment on the terrace.

Great people, lovely venue in stunning countryside – tough job this eh? :)
