We’re off to Italy again in today’s feature and it’s a joy to be able to share this intimate wedding with you. If you’ve ever dreamed about a private celebration among the Italian vineyards then I suspect that you’re going to love this wedding as much as I adored photographing it. So, without further ado, let’s lose ourselves in this Italian wedding…
I was thrilled that Samara and Kevin chose me to be their destination wedding photographer in Italy. As a couple, they’re so relaxed, kind and laidback and their families were also so welcoming and friendly. I really felt as if I was part of the bridal party!
Samara and Kevin took me to Soave, to a hideaway called Tenuta Le Cave near Verona. This was a very intimate wedding with just 14 guests coming together in the vineyards and as a romantic wedding photographer in Italy, I loved the feel of this select celebration.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m most definitely a natural light photographer and Tenuta Le Cave suited my style perfectly. Both Samara and Kevin got ready for their ceremony here and Samara’s Maggie Sottero wedding dress was just so beautiful. I have to say that ever since I wrote this feature about bridal preparations, I’ve been blessed with some of the most wonderful backdrops for those all-important ‘getting ready’ shots!
If you’re a wedding photographer in Italy, a ceremony in a stunning vineyard is sure to make you happy and Samara and Kevin’s certainly made me smile. After the couple had taken their vows, there were drinks and nibbles followed by our sunset portraits session around the venue and in the iconic vineyards themselves.
However, this wasn’t the end of Samara and Kevin’s celebrations because a week later, they threw a party for all their friends back in London. This celebration started at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and continued at St Bart’s Brewery, where the couple enjoyed their wedding cake, a first dance and LOTS of fun!
I absolutely loved Tenuta Le Cave. It’s an incredibly elegant and light venue but it’s also not strayed to far from its rustic Italian heritage. I hope to photograph more destination weddings here in the future and if you’re looking for a location for an intimate wedding in Italy, I’d certainly recommend it.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed this wedding in Italy as much as I enjoyed photographing it. If you’re planning a destination wedding in Italy (or indeed a destination wedding in Greece or even further afield!) and you’d like to find out more about my destination wedding photography then please do get in touch. I also photograph weddings in the UK and I love engagement shoots too!
