Wedding Photographer: Umbria: Nick & Becky

Amy was the wedding photographer in Umbria, Italy for Nick & Becky’s wedding.

I’m always trying to work close to home so this was a real stand-out wedding for me. Not only because you could almost pinpoint my house in the background of the group shots but also because the couple were fabulous and the day in general was absolutely AMAZING. Nick & Becky chose Becky’s Uncle’s house for their wedding which just so happens to have the most perfect little church just 100 metres or so away from it along a pretty little path. A local agriturismo just a couple of kms away was the perfect place for the reception meal – super-tasty, typical, Umbrian cuisine.

I am often asked to remember single stand-out moments from all of the weddings that I’ve photographed over the years (about 350 of them) and I always find it quite hard to do as there are just so many. However, I now always answer with a stand-out favourite moment from Nick & Becky’s wedding: when Philip Pope sang Nessun Dorma. The performance and the reaction of the crowd to the performance made every hair stand on end. It was magical.

I feel so privileged to have photographed this wedding. I loved getting to know Nick & Becky and we plan to meet up when they next come over. It was certainly a very, very special day. Thanks, Amy x

Wedding Photographer: Certosa di Pontignano & Villa Catignano, Tuscany: Nigel & Brenda

Amy was the wedding photographer at Certosa di Pontignano and Villa Catignano, Tuscany, Italy for Nigel & Brenda’s wedding.

Villa Catignano is one of my favourite venues and certainly one that I recommend regularly. I love the colours of the buildings, the rustic charm and the elegant gardens. Nigel & Brenda had their ceremony just a few miles down the road from the villa at Certosa di Pontignano. A beautiful church with cloisters and a very special chapel.

I have to say that professionally, I think that this wedding is one of the best that I ever produced. The light, backgrounds and wonderful style of the Bride just all came together beautifully. Take a look:

Wedding Photographer: Streamcombe Farm, Somerset: Duncan & Caroline

Amy was the wedding photographer at Streamcombe Farm, Somerset, UK for Duncan & Caroline’s wedding.

I love coming back to the UK for weddings and this one was a real cracker. The perfect quintessential ‘English’ country wedding. Beautiful country church for the ceremony followed by the wedding reception on a farm. Gorgeous florals, a naked cake and lawn games – this wedding was like the most eye-catching Pinterest Board.

It was very special for me since the Bridesmaid, chief-organiser and Sister-of-the-Bride was one of my very best friends, Charlotte. Take a look:

Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Andy & Laura

Amy was the photographer at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Andy & Laura’s wedding.

In 2015, I photographed more weddings at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento that in any other single place. Lucky me. It’s absolutely beautiful.

Andy & Laura’s weddings was one of the magical days when everything comes together – the weather, the people, the laughter, the tears, the sunset, the setting – all combining to make a very memorable day. One of my favourite sets of images of all time was the result. What do you think?

Wedding Photographer: Sorrento: Kevin & Ruth

Amy was the photographer in Sorrento, Italy for Kevin & Ruth’s wedding.

Wow – am I behind with this blog or what! My plan was to blog each of my 2015 weddings by the start of my 2016 season but it didn’t quite happen and here I am about to wrap up my 2016 wedding season having blog posts to write for 2015. Never mind! They might come a bit thick and fast for the next couple of weeks. Well, that’s the plan anyway!

Kevin & Ruth had a great day in Sorrento. A small group of family and friends including 3 of their children made for a very close family atmosphere.

The Bride & Groom got ready at The Grand Hotel Riviera, Sorrento. The Cloisters played host to the wedding ceremony. A quick drink at the bar in the little park next door to the Cloisters came next followed by an hour on the roof-top terrace of Hotel La Favourita. A short walk through the old town to O’Parrucchiano Restaurant. What a place! It’s huge and has a big lemon grove inside it. Lemons dangle above your head as you eat. Take a look:
