I literally have no idea where to begin! Last month I got to photoshoot a Wedding in Perugia, Italy, and it was the most breathtaking experience.
The venue, views, guests and the stunning Bride and Groom were all fantastic. Being a local UK Wedding Photographer, I usually photograph venues in the UK around Suffolk and Norfolk. This was my first Destination Wedding photography and it definitely won’t be my last!
Emily & Elliot got married at Villa Baroncino, situated in Perugia Italy. A little town about 2 hours outside of Rome. It was in the middle of nowhere, utterly peaceful and the Villa was also set back onto a hill, so you could really lay back and enjoy the views across the land and surrounding mountains. - Also making the Destination Wedding photography even more stunning!
The Wedding day itself flashed by in a blur… As you can tell from the below photographs, there was plenty of laughter, love and beauty! The clouds came over just for a moment in the morning, but it was a relief from the 35+ degree heat. The sun was soon shining again by the time Emily took her walk (marathon), down the stunningly long aisle.
What I didn’t expect, was the Italian traditions that were incorporated by the owners of the Villa, into the day itself. Particularly in the evening when cutting the cake - I’d been told where the cake was being cut and I stood there with the Bride and Groom waiting for the cake (which was odd anyway, as usually the cake already sits out on the cake table), then all of the Wedding guests were asked to stand in a circle and out of nowhere blares out the song ‘That’s Amore’, then shortly accompanied by two Italians swinging the Wedding cake side to side on a mirror! - In all honesty it made for some great candids and you really felt like there was no doubt as to which country you were in!
My time photographing Emily and Elliot’s Destination Wedding Photography was an experience I’ll never forget and certainly the photographs will always be some of my all time favourites - that I know already!
Here’s a little taste of how they’re shaping up…
