Amy was the wedding photographer in Tuscany, Italy for Alex & Abbie’s wedding.
Sunday was such a special day for me. To see Tuscany at its very best and to have the honour of photographing a beautiful wedding was truly memorable. Alex & Abbie got married in the most stunning chapel I think I have ever photographed a wedding in but for various reasons, the location of it must remain a secret. If you are interested in getting married at this ‘moon on a stick’ location then there is only one way of going about it and that is to contact the wonderful Jacqueline Bradshaw from Marry Me in Tuscany.
After the ceremony and a light lunch we stopped off at Sant’Antimo Abbey. A stunning Abbey with an interesting history and certainly worth a visit if you are in the area. Then it was an hour or so in the cars to the south west of Tuscany to celebrate the wedding reception at the chic Conti di San Bonifacio. Jackie did such a wonderful job of making the table look amazing – the guests almost keeled over as they came round the corner to be met with the sight of where they were to sit and eat.
Just 12 guests made the day very personal, romantic and relaxed. I loved every minute of it. Now then, I bet you’re dying to have a look at some of the images:
The view from the kitchen window in the apartment that the bride and her Mum got ready in. Not bad hey.
So much beautiful detail to photograph.
Love this one.
Abbie and her Mum.
Alex and the guests arrived. Here he is with his Dad and Abbie’s Uncle, who had the very important role of giving Abbie away.
Just look at this incredible chapel. It was tiny and perfect.
Confetti shots are often some of my favourites from the day.
More detail to capture so that it is never forgotten. Abbie’s Mum is underneath!
May I introduce Gran. This gorgeous lady, the VIP of the guest list is 98 years old! She certainly seemed to have a fabulous time in Tuscany.
Ok, I’ll give you another little glimpse-ette of the chapel.
Light-lunch, Tuscan-style was served directly outside the chapel with a view of Tuscany that was to die for. Panzanella was served, one of my favourite dishes.
Role on a few hours and Alex & Abbie arrive at Conti di San Bonifacio ahead of the guests. Isn’t this beautiful?
As the sun went down, I barely took my finger off the shutter release.
Jackie worked her magic. Simple and elegant as usual with a ‘wow’ overall effect.
Meanwhile, the guests enjoyed prosecco and an incredible cheese and prosciutto board.
Now you can see why the guests were bowled over by the beautiful table settings. Well done Jackie.
More lovely detail.
And so I left the party eating, drinking and laughing around the table – just how it should be.
Great couple, great families, great friends and a great, great day that everyone involved will never forget. Thanks everyone. – Amy x
