Wedding Photographer: Montestigliano, Siena, Tuscany: Jon & Nancy

Amy was the photographer at Montestigliano, Siena, Tuscany, Italy for Jon & Nancy’s vow renewal ceremony.

In all of the years that I have been a wedding photographer, in Siena last week I was faced with a new challenge: not a wedding but a renewal of vows. Jon surprised his wife of 25 years, by organising one of the most romantic and intimate ceremonies I have had the pleasure of witnessing.

Montestigliano, a beautiful chapel on a hill played the perfect host for this wonderful event. Just Jon, Nancy and their 2 teenage daughters were present (along with brilliant Siena wedding planner Jackie.)

I met the family at the beautiful Grand Hotel Continental in central Siena. We had half an hour or so there before heading out into the countryside to Montestigliano. What a place! Great colours provided wonderful backdrops for my photographs and Jon & Nancy’s two daughters were beautiful models.

Take a peek:

Siena’s nooks and crannies are hidden gems.

Love the walls of these old buildings. Great colour!




Great fun!

Perfect little chapel. I would love to photograph a full wedding at this venue.


So intimate and romantic. Jackie, was in floods of tears at the back of the church by this stage!

But there were laughs too when Jon’s new ring wouldn’t fit!

  1. Thanks again Francis. I am lucky enough to work in some incredible spots. I’m off to the UK later today for a wedding over-looking Lake Windermere on Saturday. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather!
