Destination Wedding Tuscany
Volterra, Tuscany in Italy, is the most beautiful and enchanting location for this very intimate wedding! This beautiful couple, Soph & Sam decided to tie the knot here witnessed by only us and their gorgeous daughters Esme and Tilly, which obviously makes us feel extremely honoured and I felt super proud as I have known Soph all of her life. We started photographing as everyone was getting ready, a hairdresser arrived to ‘tame’ Soph’s hair, the girls sat still for a few minutes to have their hair tidied up too! Sam got ready in to his smart Navy Hugo Boss suit matched with tan brogues and belt that were gifts from Soph, the girls literally couldn’t wait to get in to their hand made Bridesmaids Dresses, they looked so cute accessorised with sparkly gold sandals from mini-boden and petite feather clips in their hair. Soph applied her own make up using lovely subtles shades of Chanel make up, which was perfect to go with her 50’s inspired designed hand made dress, which Sam assisted in doing up the zip, complimented by classic nude LK Bennett court shoes. Soph’s sister had given her a delicate silver bracelet and she wore earrings made from diamonds that were her late Grandmother’s. The grounds of the complex where they were staying are just stunning with amazing views looking up to the hilltop town of Volterra, beautifully kept gardens and 3 pools! and we were able to take some lush photographs of them all before the taxi arrived to take us in to the town for the Ceremony which was held in the Town Hall in The Palazzo dei Priori. We were met by Gillian, a lovely Scottish Lady who organises many weddings for couples wishing to get married in Tuscany, she had Soph’s bouquet which was a stunning hand tied bouquet of ivory roses. The ceremony was conducted by the Lady Mayoress of Volterra in the beautiful Italian language, very romantic (Soph & Gillian were the only two people who understood it!) with Gillian translating the legal parts of it, so cool! After some photographs inside the stunning room and on the steps outside we walked back through the busy streets to have a drink and to take some more photographs overlooking the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. The taxi then took us to the amazing Villa Pignano which was a few miles away from Volterra but had the most incredeible view overlooking Volterra, where we had a gourmet’s delight of a Wedding Breakfast and the staff were most attentive and the sunset just perfect, it completed a perfect day!
