What a photographer from Tuscany could ever know about the wedding planning? Well, actually a lot more than you might think. First of all, I have been a groom recently, and then I know what it means to choose the best vendors and coordinate many different professionals of the wedding industry.

Planning a wedding is taste, style and personality. Even if I was in touch with a lot of caterers, flower designers, musicians and, celebrants, I had to struggle hard to find the perfect matches for my special day.

That’s why I want to help to all the couples who dream about getting married and planning the perfect wedding in Italy with the posts you see below. If all of this is not enough,  I have to show you tonnes of weddings’ photographs! 🙂

Here are some readings (plus beautiful pictures) you might enjoy:
