Wedding Photographer: Umbria, Italy – Assisi, Romantik Hotel Le Silve: Fabrizio & Cathleen

Amy was the wedding photographer at Romantik Hotel le Silve near Assisi in Umbria, Italy for Fabrizio & Cathleen’s wedding.

I LOVE photographing weddings in Umbria. Close to home and after-all, it is my favourite place in the world to be. Assisi is the most well-known town in Umbria which was the destination for the wedding of Fabrizio & Cathleen on one of the hottest days of the year (40 degrees plus.)

Fabrizio & Cathleen chose a beautiful location about 20 minutes from Assisi into the countryside to stay, get ready and then return to for their reception. The ceremony was in the centre of Assisi, in a church called Chiesa di Santa Margherita which has the most wonderful views of the world-famous Basilica of San Francesco d’Assisi.

On my way! Assisi is a beautiful and unique place to visit. I love it.

There was a traditional ice-cream van parked outside the church ready to help with the heat!

After the guests had headed back to Le Silve, we had time for photographs around Assisi. A mini set of Black & Whites:

Wedding Photographer: Umbria, Italy – Assisi, Castello di Petrata: Andrew & Natalie

Amy was the wedding photographer at Castello di Petrata near Assisi in Umbria, Italy for Andrew & Natalie’s wedding.

Andrew & Natalie got married high up in the hills behind Assisi at the stunning Castello di Petrata on a beautiful, sunny but rather blustery day. This venue really does have 360 degree views and is a great choice being so close to Perugia airport and therefore to Stansted.

An emotional but relaxing day, Andrew & Natalie’s guests had flown in from far and wide including Natalie’s family and a couple of friends from South Africa. They were treated to the wonderful Marco Marconi playing piano during the ceremony and aperitivi and typical but outstanding Umbrian food.

Take a look:

Assisi is one of my favourite towns. Castello di Petrata sits high in the hills just behind the town:

How funny! Groups shots don’t have to be so staged-looking do they?
