When you’re getting married in Chianti, one of the things you’ll want to focus on will be your wedding photos. Chianti is such a beautiful area of Italy, and there’s so much to see there. Your photographer can help you make some choices about exactly where you’ll want to be located.
You may even want to go to a few different locations before you settle on one – or you might want wedding pictures taken in several different places. It’s your day, so be sure to let your photographer know what you expect from your wedding pics. Be guided by an expert photographer to make your Chianti wedding unforgettable!
Chianti is in the wine region, so that’s something else you should consider for your special day. The beauty of the area can’t be ignored, but the heritage of it should be recognized, as well. Because Chianti is very well-known and popular as a vacation destination, you’ll want to book your wedding there well in advance of the actual date.
Make sure you get the kind of accommodations you really want, and be sure to ask plenty of questions. Chianti is big, as well. The borders don’t have clear definition, but it covers the provinces of Siena and Florence. The wien area is even larger, extending farther off to the East.
Why a Chianti Wedding?
Green, rolling hills are common in Chianti, and they make a wonderful backdrop for pictures of your special day. Wide fields, olive groves, and stone villages are also common in that region, and those can create a picturesque scene that’s hard to beat.
Nature is one of the best choices for a wedding picture backdrop, since there are so many different kinds of options. If you like wine country, or even if you’re enamored with the stone buildings and homes that make up so much of Chianti, then Italy could be a perfect area for you when it comes to the perfect place to take your vows and share your love with your new spouse.
Places like Chianti are the kinds of places you see on postcards and calendars. Those pictures are breathtakingly beautiful, and using them for a background can only make your wedding pictures even better.
Be sure you’re getting the right photographer for your pictures, and the right location where those pictures will be taken. That way, you can look back fondly on memories of your special day, and you’ll be proud to show your wedding pictures to friends and family for years to come.
Among all the seasons to have a photo shoot in Tuscany, autumn is my favourite. From a vivid spring green, the colours first become yellow and then red, with shades of copper, perfect for sunset portraits and dreamy photos in the countryside. This year, autumn seems to have arrived early. The terrible heat and drought coloured the Tuscan landscape of intense yellow, much earlier than usual. Those who chose July for a honeymoon or an engagement […]
