It’s easy to drop into anonymity when you choose to take a wedding’s photos in a sea setting . The capacity of a good photographer is to choose the most suggestive and particular corners of the location, which don’t belong to classic photographs. Be guided by an expert photographer to discover the best resorts for Forte dei Marmi Beach Weddings.
The photographer shall be able also to catch the most particular framings of the symbolic places in Forte dei Marmi, as for example, the city’s blockhouse, that represents a perfect location to take some photos of the wedding.
A good photographer knows the best angle shots and the particular positions that bride and groom have to assume to make the shot unique and original. Forte dei Marmi ‘s seashore is an ideal setting, in particular at sunset, when the photographer shall catch those lights and shades that happen when the sun disappears behind the horizon.
There’s a really particular element in Forte dei Marmi, that is used a lot by photographers: the pier. When you have a photographer who knows this element well, and who knows how and when to picture it, the wedding couple’s photographs become magical and suggestive, never banal and highly original, though there are many people choosing Forte and its sea: it’s all in the ability of those who take the pictures and in their creative vein.
Shooting a Tuscany beach wedding is always a pleasing and refreshing experience. Every time, I come home with lovely portraits that enrich my portfolio. However, beyond the photographer, a wedding on the beach is an experience to remember for both bride and groom and the guests present.

What about this Forte Dei Marmi Beach Wedding? If this was not the perfect marriage, we need to revise the definition of wedding. Thanks to a beautiful couple of spouses, a fairytale locations and a staff living up to the occasion. But first things first.
The bride and the groom have decided to get married on a warm Saturday in mid-September in Versilia, where they’ve been living and working for years.

Small, entirely built with tuff and marble, it is one of the brightest I’ve ever seen. The Beach Resort Francomare was the place where the couple received their guests.… read more...

In Italy, it is called lovers’ getaway. There could not be a more romantic name to define what in the Italian language does not have a precise definition. Two words: Italy elopement.
The one famous in the 60s and 70s, when lovers from South-Italy, who did not accept the marriage arranged by their families, flee to the north, trying to build a life after a rapid rite celebrated in haste.
In 2015, many things have changed. The elopement has become a recurring thought in all those couples who are looking for a different way to celebrate a wedding; something that is more intimate, something to live almost privately, something that might be also the occasion for a great honeymoon.
Why eloping abroad?
The elopement is nothing more than a wedding where there is no one else but the couple and the celebrant. And, of course, the photographer.

For Catholics, the wedding must take place within the community in which you live. In addition to being a party for the bride and groom, it is also a time when the whole community tightens next to the new couple and celebrates with it the birth of a new family. The inhabitants are witnesses of this, and the church is the place where this new union is blessed. It’s very rare to see a couple of Italians celebrate a symbolic ceremony on the beach. Less rare, but certainly not frequent, are civil weddings. The church was and is the place par excellence in Italy where weddings are celebrated since ancient times.
Alessandra and Andrea, as usual, have crowned their dream of love in the church of Montevettolini, a few minutes from where Alessandra was born and raised. The village is almost entirely built in stone, sits perched on a hill overlooking the valleys of vineyards and olive groves between Pistoia and Montecatini Terme, in Tuscany.… read more...
