Wedding Photographer: Casale de’Pasquinelli, Lucca: Anthony & Meghan

Amy was the wedding photographer at Casale de’Pasquinelli, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy for Anthony & Meghan’s wedding.

Anthony, Meghan and their family and friends had travelled from the US to celebrate this beautiful wedding in my favourite Italian city, Lucca. With lots of time in the city for photographs after the ceremony, I was in my element. The open-air ceremony was in the stunning garden of Palazzo Pfanner – certainly worth the entrance fee if you’re ever in Lucca.

We drove about 20 minutes to the north of the city into the mountains to Casale de’pasquinelli. Take a look:

Wedding Photographer: Casale de’Pasquinelli, Lucca: Ben & Jodie

Amy was the wedding photographer at Casale de’Pasquinelli, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy for Ben & Jodie’s wedding.

Ben & Jodie sought out a beautiful venue called Casale de’Pasquinelli which is pretty hidden in the hills to the north of Lucca. A perfect September day, the ceremony location was absolutely breath-taking and there were so many beautiful little spots around the Villa for photographs that I was really spoilt for choice.

As the sun went down the scene turned from beautiful to spectacular as guests enjoyed their wedding meal under hundreds of hanging lights. The view from the dance floor wasn’t bad either! Take a look:

Ben just ready.

Wedding Photographer: Lucca: Steve & Jill

Amy was the wedding photographer in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy for Steve & Jill’s wedding.

From Ravello to the very beautiful town of Lucca and the wedding of Jill and Steve, organised by the great wedding planner in Tuscany, Jacqueline Bradshaw. I absolutely love this Tuscan town: it’s vibrant with lots to see and do but with the feel of a very friendly, smaller place. Steve & Jill were so relaxed and in fact opted to meet in the main Piazza 45 minutes before the ceremony, as we did on our wedding day. We set up a little ‘reveal’ for Steve as Jill made her way to him and the guests.

The Town Hall of Lucca, where the ceremony took place is AMAZING! A dream room for me to photograph in so if your wedding is in Lucca, please contact me – I’m already desperate to work in there again! After the ceremony, a quick drink and some group shots, the guests followed Jackie to the restaurant whilst Steve, Jill and I made our way there slowly, photographing as we went. We had so much fun! Everywhere I looked, there was another photograph to be had. Lunch in the Canuleia Restaurant was lovely and boy was there a lot of it (although no aubergine!!!)

Here we go:

I love Lucca!

Gorgeous everywhere you look.
