Among the many venues for the wedding in Florence, Castello di Vincigliata is the most fascinating and attractive. The castle is immersed in a wood of large trees, just a few steps from the centre of Fiesole and a few minutes from Florence. Accessible by a narrow, winding road rising along the hill, the Florentine castle offers a unique and breathtaking view, one of the most impressive of the entire Chianti. The Castello di Vincigliata provides several areas for organising ceremonies and receptions. The most attractive is the panoramic terrace where this cute Canadian couple has exchanged promises and rings, surrounded by excited families and friends. But let’s take a step back. The bride and groom got ready at Villa Fiesole, a few minute drive from the castle, along with bridesmaids and groomsmen. Upon arrived at the venue with a limo, the nervous groom watched the bride walk with her […]
For those who dream of a religious marriage, Florence offers many beautiful churches. The old town is full of ancient and beautiful churches. A real jewel instead is set in the hills around the Tuscan city: La Certosa del Galluzzo, an ancient Carthusian monastery, located in the Florence countryside. The couple got dressed and ready in the beautiful Villa Cora, a stone’s throw from the historic centre and the artistic beauties of the city. The bride looked even more beautiful after a gorgeous make-up made by Anna Matanovic. The lipstick was perfectly in tune with the colour of the bouquets, the wedding table decorations and the favours for the guests. The ceremony was held inside the Certosa. The bride arrived on a beautiful Bentley and climbed the stairs leading to the altar with her father, both clearly excited. Given the beauty of the ceremony and the reception, I took the first part of […]
Choosing the best venue for your destination wedding in Florence takes time and patience. It’s not as easy as it might seem, especially for those who plan the wedding from abroad. There are so many beautiful locations that can be taken into account for the big day in Italy. Tuscany and Florence are full of charming historical villas with gardens, grand entrances and magnificent views of the surrounding landscape. A good wedding planner might guide you to the best choice for you and your guests. But if your dream is a romantic elopement in Italy, things get more complicated. Not having to handle a large number of guests, any place can be a match for an unforgettable ceremony. Many villas and hotels for destination weddings in Florence offer terraces with views of the city and the Arno river. None of these venues, however, can provide the quality of a Four Seasons Wedding […]
An engagement session in Florence is always a good excuse to enjoy a few relaxing days in the capital of Tuscany. The beauty of the town, good food, art, fancy boutiques are just a few good reasons to spend some days in Florence. And maybe to have your pictures taken by a photographer! The couple of the day had one more reason for the images. These two cute British guys are getting married next year in Tuscany and, for their engagement photos, they have chosen Florence. It was a pleasure to guide and portray them in some of the most fascinating spots in the town. We walked through the streets of the old centre, among Renaissance statues and marvellous backgrounds for photos. I took the opportunity to show them the hidden wonders of the Tuscan capital. The day was sunny and the climate perfect for light clothing. She wore a […]
Tell me the truth! Looking at this Florence Pre Wedding, wouldn’t you like to be in this couple’s shoes? Wouldn’t you like to be portrayed as you walk with the love of your life through the most beautiful streets and squares of the Tuscan city? I was born and raised two steps away from Florence and, although I admire this beauty ever since I was a kid, every time I am still impressed by the beauty of the Tuscan city. If this happens to me, I can understand the wonder that I see in the eyes of millions of tourists and lovers who flock to Ponte Vecchio, Piazza Della Signoria and Piazzale Michelangelo. These two guys are among them. Although they’d never been here, they have chosen Florence for their pre-wedding photos. What is it about? In the Asian tradition, engaged couples pose for pictures in the most beautiful cities in […]
The job of a good wedding photographer is to immortalise the emotions of the day. In particular, to let people relive all that vibrant mood after years in photos. And that’s what I tried to do today, thanks to this wonderful Villa di Lilliano Wedding. Florence and Tuscany are all about the beautiful and authentic things of life. Like mild weather, nature, great food and wine. Every bride-to-be keeps it in great consideration in arranging a destinations wedding in Italy. Together with the love of families and friends, a good balance and relaxed lifestyle is the basis for a successful marriage – and for a long life! The spouses organised their wedding at the fabulous Villa Di Lilliano in Florence. This elegant venue is located just a few miles from the city centre, surrounded by hills full of olive trees and cypresses. The Villa di Lilliano provides several areas to host ceremony and […]
Villa Cora is one of the most luxurious and exclusive hotels in Florence. Organising a Villa Cora wedding is a daydream. The large baroque halls, the elegant rooms in Florentine style and the Italian garden are some of the major pros of this magnificent and antique Italian Villa. This couple decided to crown their dream of love right here. Villa Cora was the undisputed star of the three-day marriage with Indian ritual. Hundreds of guests from around the world gathered in Florence to celebrate the union of this delightful Swiss couple. The bride and the groom got dressed up in their rooms in the villa. The celebration took place at the Hotel Westin Excelsior, in the centre of Florence. There could be no better place for the photo shoot! I took the couple’s portraits in the most impressive spots of the city centre and the surrounding hills. Also, I made some […]
Alexandra is one of those girls who, the moment you see them- bang!- she strike you right in the heart with their disarming beauty and cheerfulness. Florentines know it well, because, during a warm afternoon of May, they have stared at her while she was walking on the cobblestones of the city, close to her future husband. What to say about Jay, her groom to be? I met a handsome dark-haired, tall and elegant man who didn’t leave neutral the women walking in the centre of Florence. But let’s step back. In Spring I received an email from two young New-Yorkers, Alexandra and Jay, who had decided to leave the Big Apple to exchange their eternal vows here in Tuscany, on the mild hills of the Florentine countryside. They also wanted me to take their engagement photos so that I could know each other better and get some memories of their holidays […]
Of all the wedding venues in Florence, the Castello di Vincigliata is undoubtedly the most scenic. Perched on a hill near Fiesole, the castle offers newlyweds and guests a breathtaking view, areas set up for every part of the ceremony and the wedding reception, an atmosphere that is not easily forgotten. Today’s couple has organised the wedding right here. The spouses got ready in Villa Fiesole, an elegant hotel at a short distance from the castle. The ceremony took place inside the cloister. The bride and groom exchanged vows and wedding rings under an arch of flowers, in front of their excited guests. I took the traditional photographs with families and couple portraits inside the castle property. Although the scenery in the surrounding area is lovely, the venue offers many beautiful spots, perfect for wedding photos. The groom had also hired a Fiat Cinquecento, thanks to which I could take some […]
It is all too easy to start talking about this Greek wedding in Florence quoting a movie from a few years ago: “My big fat Greek wedding“. A funny, pleasant comedy that made me laugh sincerely. Discovering that the Greeks are, in some ways, similar to the protagonists of the movie, was surprising. But let’s step back. Let’s talk about the groom, Giorgos. What could be more Greek of a Greek guy who works at the Greek restaurant in Florence? A very tall guy, who likes to laugh, joke and have fun. He has a genuine passion for his home country. During a meeting, before the wedding, I was enchanted to listen to him as he recounted the origins of his family. Here, right. Family and traditions. Forget what they say on TV about the Greeks. I did not know the Hellenic people, and the truth is that they are much more […]
Every year, I portray dozens of couples from all over the world around Europe. This is the first time I have the pleasure of photographing a couple from Costa Rica and their lovely wedding at Villa Le Piazzole in Florence. The bride, who’s been forever deeply in love with Italy, couldn’t help but choose Florence as the location for her wedding. So she left Costa Rica with a few family members to spend some relaxing days in the Florentine countryside. Right here is Villa Le Piazzole. Surrounded by rows of olive trees and cypresses, the villa has a desirable location, overlooking Florence and the surrounding hills. Is less than 10 minutes away from the major attractions of the Tuscan city and offers its guests relaxation, privacy and a stunning swimming pool with a view. Both the bride and the groom got ready inside the rooms of the villa. The ceremony […]
April, in Italy, is the month of blossoming. Spring has just begun: trees and plants awaken after the long winter and begin to show the best of themselves. Colourful flowers peek out into the earlier frozen fields of Tuscany. Rain comes and, within a few hours, it gives way to blazing red sunsets. With a little luck, April is the perfect month to celebrate a wedding in Florence and surrounding countryside. The bride and the groom are both Parisians. What better location than the French capital to organise an unforgettable wedding? Tuscany, maybe. Yes, because these lovebirds were looking for something different for their marriage. Tuscany and Villa Castelletti hit them straight in the heart. So, having discovered one of the most beautiful venues in Florence, they began to look for a church that could hold a Catholic Mass in French for them, their families and the many guests. The […]
The bride and groom of today, although they are 100% English, have lived in the UAE for several years now. Their wedding was the occasion to meet once again family and friends who live far away. What better location than Florence to do this? They, in fact, love Italy and its beautiful life. Wouldn’t you like to enjoy a delicious meal under the starry sky with the sound of crickets accompanying the dinner? If you were forced to live mostly indoors, you’d probably experience Italian Dolce Vita on the most beautiful day of your life. Tuscany is rich in villas and castles where you can organise a wedding. However, if you want a Catholic wedding in an ancient villa, you should know that very few facilities are lucky enough to have the church on the property. The choice is even harder if you’re looking only in the province of Florence. […]
Besides being a lovely place where to spend a romantic getaway in Italy, the Four Seasons in Florence is the perfect venue for exciting weddings and elopements. For the first time, I had the privilege of telling through my lens a beautiful love story that’s just begun: that of this gorgeous couple and their Christmas wedding proposal. Christmas is, in fact, one of the most inspiring moments to be spent in Italy. The Four Seasons Hotel in Florence, for the holidays, puts on its best dress. The lobby is painted in white and gold. Snow-covered trees decorated with golden balls and stars surround the statue inspired by Michelangelo’s David. Christmas songs are playing. The atmosphere is enchanting as well. Florence is full of lights and activities; the museums are open and everywhere echoes the music of dozens of street musicians. At the beautiful private chapel, he proposed her. A dreamy […]
I love you in all languages of the world. It’s the name of an Italian film of 2005 by Leonardo Pieraccioni, well known in Italy but little abroad. It comes back to my mind during a photo shoot in Florence. Two gorgeous Brazilian newlyweds in front of me; around, intrigued and fascinated, many couples in love on vacation look at the couple as they walk dreamy, radiant and happy after their wedding. This couple has already been here when they were engaged, and they chose to come back here for the best day of their lives. From Brazil, they have opted for the Tuscan city to elope. They’ve always been in love with Italian art and culture. In particular, Junior, who, with his Empire-style tattoos resumes the shapes and decorations of Roman architecture. They could not choose a better destination for their elopement. Florence in this season shows itself in all its […]
The most classic wedding in Florence could not exist without the beauty of the Vincigliata Castle as a venue. Built entirely of stone, the castle is located in Fiesole, in a panoramic position, surrounded by olive groves and lush wild countryside. After seeing it, this couple decided to receive their guests here on the occasion of the wedding reception. But let’s take a step back. They got ready, together with their families and friends, at the Fattoria Il Milione, entirely occupied by the wedding guests. They met in the centre of Florence for the Catholic ceremony that was celebrated in the ancient Church of All Saints. A rich, opulent church and a stone’s throw from the River Arno and the sights of the Tuscan city. I took their pictures right there, among the artistic beauties of the historic centre. After a few photos in Piazzale Michelangelo, with a view of […]
Among the many venues for weddings in Florence, Villa Vedetta deserves a special mention. The beauty of this residence perched on the hills around the capital of Tuscany is not the only reason why Sharlene and Craig, all the way from Australia, decided to get married here. But if you’ve never seen Villa La Vedetta, you just cannot help but fall in love with it at first sight. They know it well. Villa La Vedetta is located a few steps from Piazzale Michelangelo, the terrace with the most beautiful view in Florence. It is a historic old villa which has 18 rooms inside, a famous restaurant, a beautiful Italian garden, a swimming pool and a fabulous terrace with a view. The historic center of Florence is less than 10 minutes away, and can be reached thanks to the free shuttle that Villa La Vedetta puts at the disposal of its customers […]
Villa Le Piazzole is located in Galluzzo, a small and lovely village on the outskirts of Florence, on the ancient road that leads to Siena through the Chianti hills. Villa Le Piazzole is one of the most attractive wedding venues in Florence. An Italian garden surrounds the main mansion. Inside the property, there are also a pool with a view, vineyards, dirt roads throughout the wild nature and even a small church, perfect for small intimate blessings. Villa Le Piazzole gives its best in the spring. The flowering roses climb on the ancient walls, and the warm and enveloping light gives the garden grace and colour. Even Florence and its Duomo, two steps away, seem to shine again after the long winter. Despite the rain, this American couple decided to celebrate their wedding at Villa Le Piazzole. They both got ready in a hotel in the centre of Florence. After having her […]
To create an elegant wedding you need only a few elements, simple and timeless. Two guys deeply in love, a romantic country church, a reception among the silent hills of Tuscany and the affection of relatives and friends. I met Letizia and Gianluca on a cold February afternoon, in the sunny Versilia. I quickly realised in front of me I had two sweet and kind guys, ready to receive helpful tips to plan their wedding, without neglecting any detail. Together we have planned the photo shoot of their beautiful marriage in Tuscany, scheduled on an April morning, just two months after we met. Letizia and Gianluca got married with a Catholic ceremony in the Church of San Frediano in Ponsacco. A delightful church, intimate and lovingly cared for. I loved the floral arrangements chosen by the couple. The ceremony took place between the excitement of newlyweds and guests, in an […]
