Cortona is one of those towns where you cannot help but fall in love with it. Perched on the hills, Cortona is the quintessential Tuscany.
The downtown streets are delightful, full of outdoor cafes where you can spend a few hours drinking delicious wines and eating the healthy food of the area. Its many doors frame the most beautiful sunsets, with views over the surrounding fields. In short, one of the loveliest places to celebrate a wedding.
This friendly American couple was looking for an intimate and genuine wedding, surrounded by a few but real friends and family. The bride got dressed at the Villa Marsili Hotel with her sister, who was very excited! Then she reached her husband at the Town Hall of Cortona, entirely decorated with wood, where their wedding planner Simona was waiting for them. The Town Hall of Cortona is one of the most exciting venues for civil weddings in Italy.
The day was very hot. After the couple had enjoyed a refreshing ice cream, I accompanied them through the neighbourhood to capture some fabulous couple portraits. I asked them to walk through the vineyards, to pose for me in the most beautiful olive groves of Tuscany. The light was warm and cosy, and the traditional couple’s portraits could not come out better than these. Right after sunset, I accompanied the couple to the restaurant, where their families were waiting for them. I greeted them after the speeches, still excited and happy, ready to start their new life together. Here are some photos!
