Returning to photograph a wedding at the Antica Fattoria di Paterno, is always a lovely thing! It’s like meeting dear friends after a long time. There is always pleasant news! Since my last visit, the garden and some areas have been partially renovated. The villa, already impressive before these interventions, is now even more functional and enchanting. Villa Paterno is, without a doubt, the most beautiful villa for marriages in Tuscany.
The couple of the day has different origins. Although they both live in the United States, the groom’s family is Irish while the bride’s is from the Czech Republic. Their guests arrived in Tuscany from all over the world, taking a few extra days for a vacation in Italy. The ceremony was held in the garden. Unfortunately, a few drops of rain made the wedding planner to move the setting inside at the last minute. But the newlyweds and their guests, already thrilled, hardly seemed to notice it!
The dinner took place on the pretty terrace with views. The couple portraits were taken a few minutes earlier, on the lawn of the private property accessible only to spouses and photographers. Here, I had all the intimacy to capture vivid portraits of this lovely happy newlyweds.
It was a pleasure to spend the rest of the evening with them, among moving speeches and wild dances! For this reason, the Antica Fattoria di Paterno never betrays: like good wine, it becomes increasingly good with the passing of time! Please see below some images!
