Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at Tenuta di Lupinari, Tuscany, Italy for the wedding of Richard & Rachel.

We’re back home again after another two Italy weddings. Firstly, on Thursday we were in Tuscany to photograph Richard & Rachel’s beautiful weddding at Lupinari. It’s a stunning castle complete with separate apartments which housed most of the wedding guests for the week. The ceremony was on the lawn in front of the castle overlooking the Tuscan countryside and after drinks & ‘nibbles’ (mainly incredible cheeses) on the terrace, the guests moved up to a different location where a marquee had been set up for the evening meal.
Another highlight was our great friend Marco Marconi who played some mesmerizing piano pieces during the meal (including his own composition – The Day Before.) Then together with his wife Sally Ann & his jazz band, they entertained until late.
Without further ado, here are some images:
Rich takes a pretty good photograph eh?!!
The lovely Rachel. Rachel gave Amy enough time to create some beautiful images with her & her Bridesmaids. It’s always a favourite time of ours and this is just one of many lovely images they’ll have for their album.
A surprise present for the ladies, shortly before walking down the aisle.
The beautiful location for the ceremony complete with the castle in the background. We shoot a lot into sun – looking for the wonderful lens flare effects as seen here.
In case you’re wondering, this was taken through the back of a chair! A lovely moment.
Golden sunlight & Cypress trees combine to bring Italy into this image of the bridal party.
We walked a short distance to some old buildings for a few ‘different’ images. Here’s the happy couple walking the white road between the vineyards on the way.
Richard learned to play the guitar (secretly) so he could play & sing a song for Rachel just before dinner was served. This is pure concentration :) He also played a couple of tracks with friends – again secretly rehearsed and a complete surprise.
Rachel’s reaction – laughing, crying, love, amazement – all in one image!
And I have to include a shot of Marco at the piano. When you have a minute, go to our ‘complete wedding’ and select ‘run slideshow.’ Even if you don’t look at the images, listen to him playing his heart out in a ‘one take’ recording of his own composition – The Day Before. Now imagine him playing it live at your wedding :)
That’s it for now. Check back in a couple of days for some images from Simon & Victoria’s wedding at Stresa, Lake Maggiore.
