Merry Christmas!

We’re at home in Umbria just settling down in front of a wonderfully-warm log fire (albeit a little smokey!) to watch some Christmas TV (downloaded!) and drink some mulled wine (home-made). We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas & a Happy New Year.

We almost had a white Christmas! Here’s a view of the house taken a week or so ago.

And a shot looking down the driveway from the house.

Thanks to all of our amazing clients past & future – we really enjoy keeping in touch with you all – don’t become strangers :) A big “Hi!” to Louise & Jonathan (extraordinary talents – checkout their work – really!!) & welcome to our newest clients – Andrew & Loren – who booked us today to go back to a special place for us – Sandhole Oak Barn near Congleton, Cheshire. To our close friend David A Williams – we miss you mate – bbq on the beach for you isn’t it? and to everyone else who have helped us & worked with us in 2007. See you all in 2008 :) – Andy & Amy x

Email down

Sorry folks, for an unknown reason (because our hosting company haven’t contacted us yet!) our .com email is down. It appears to check normally at our end so we weren’t aware that there was a problem but after a couple of days with no emails that account, we sent ourselves a test from another account and it bounced! We believe that it’s been down for at least 2 days unfortunately, so we apologise if you’ve been trying to reach us that way. If you haven’t been replied to – it’s because we haven’t received your email – sorry :( I’ve amended our website and altered the default email address on there to our account – everything is working fine there. -Andy

Happy Birthday Amy!

Today is my gorgeous wife’s birthday. She’s reached the grand old age of 30 and doesn’t look a day older than she did in her 20s. Happy birthday hon – glad you like the ‘polytunnel’ :) love ya lots! – Andy xx

Wedding photographer: Castello di Rivalta, Piacenza, Italy: Gianni & Rachel

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at Castello di Rivalta, Piacenza, Emilia Romagna, Italy for the wedding of Gianni & Rachel.

We had a fabulous time in Emilia Romagna near Piacenza this weekend for Gianni & Rachel’s wedding which was on Saturday. So many people come to Italy for Summer weddings – and the obvious weather advantages and yet the winter weddings over here are equally gorgeous. Gianni & Rachel had chosen the stunning Church at La Rivalta as their wedding venue and with the amazing restaurant and luxury hotel all located together in the ‘Borgo’ – it made for a perfect day.

On with the ‘snaps’ :)

Ahem! Gianni will have to explain this one :)

We love the depth in this image.

The groom & best men.

Wow – beautiful.

Perhaps Rachel is reacting to Gianni’s singing :)

A lovely alleyway that connected the Church to the hotel. We used it again later as you’ll see.

Doesn’t that red really ‘pop?’

This will be particularly stunning in print.

Wait ’till you see the rest of the images! Thank you both for looking after us so thoughtfully – you have amazing friends & families & we really enjoyed ourselves. – Andy
