The best places for civil ceremony in Tuscany

Maybe you don’t know that Tuscany is very rich in churches. Whether they are Romanesque, Baroque or modern, most of them are ideal for moving and touching ceremonies, in a setting full of charm and history. The same cannot be said for civil ceremonies. The rite of the civil wedding is short, cold and unexciting. The setting where it takes place, which usually is the town hall, is unattractive. Who doesn’t dream a civil wedding on a beach, with the sound of the waves in the background? Or in a garden of a grand Italian villa with relatives and friends? Although some town halls of Tuscany are kept in an excellent way,  wouldn’t be nicer to have a civil service outdoors? Since a few years, you can have civil ceremonies in unique places, such the gardens of the most beautiful historical villas of Tuscany. These places are perfect because: the civil rites celebrated in Italy are valid internationally.… read more...

Family photos in Lucca

Are you looking for an old authentic village of Italy to take your family photos? There are many options that you might consider when it comes to this region. Towns and villages such as Florence, Cinque Terre, and many others could indeed match what you’re searching. However,  if you want something authentic and intimate at the same time, you should keep Lucca in consideration. It combines history, artistic beauties and that mood of casual elegance that will leave you speechless. Family photos in Lucca I’m going to list just a few of the many reasons why Lucca is my favorite town for couple portraits and family photos throughout all Tuscany. Lucca is cozy and quite small.

Wedding photography made with love

Wedding photography made with love

Many people think that the photographs of the wedding are only static images and quite often gone out of fashion. My goal is to destroy this myth and take my wedding photos in a completely different way. I always try to live all the love that’s in the couple and this is mostly visible from their spontaneous and natural gestures. Also, I want that the bride looks like a real model on the magazines. I do my best because every single photograph returns the memory of a special day. I’m lucky because Italy is a great place to live. For what concerns the photography, there are soooo many spots for taking lovely pictures here!! For instance, Venice has the canals, of course, so if you’re looking for some images around the water, that might be your best choice. Talk with your photographer to get great tips for your wedding pictures, no matter what Italian city you choose.… read more...
