• Destination Wedding Photography – Italy

    Becky and Matt got married in May at the spectacular Villa Baroncino, which is a stunning vineyard in Perugia Italy. It was the most beautiful wedding and one of the most beautiful Italian weddings I have shot!

    Getting ready

    Becky got ready in the Villas bridal suite, and the atmosphere was full of excitement. Becky got to watch a lot of the preparation for the wedding as her third floor bedroom overlooked the garden and vineyard. The wedding party then walked the short distance to get to the ceremony. Becky looked beautiful in her Pronovias dress walking down the aisle with her Dad. Matt got ready in a gorgeous room in the Villa with his Best Man, when I popped over to get some groom prep images, they were both finalising their speeches! He travelled to the ceremony FIELD EMPTY.

    The ceremony

    The ceremony was an intimate affair in the grounds of the venue. A wooden flower coverd arch way had been put up to create an alter, and the vintage chic chairs were set out perfectly in the garden for the guests to sit on. During the ceremony they had several beautiful readings from friends and family. It was so beautiful and a beautiful way of involving everyone in the ceremony.

    After the ceremony

    The reception was in a marquee at the venue. They chose Villa Baroncino because they could have the place for the whole weekend and they just fell in love with it. It was a small family wedding, which included their nearest and dearest and friends who had travelled across the world to enjoy the Italian sunshine. I love shooting destination weddings because I get to do the job I love in a new and exciting place, and I absoloutlet buzz off travelling to new places so unusual. I offer special rates on destination weddings, so if you are getting married abroad, get in touch. On my hit list, France, Greece, Iceland, Ibiza, Ireland, U.S.A & Thailand.but I will literally travel anywhere in the world!!

    The couple

    The couple says that if you’re planning your wedding, the biggest piece of advice they could give you is find a fantastic wedding planner, one who gets your vision and explore all avenues for your suppliers. Hiring a wedding photographer in Italy can be expensive and you only get around 3/4 hours coverage. Taking me with you could be so much more cost effective!!

    Becky and Matt’s wedding was everything I love about weddings and had such a chilled vibe. Here’s their gorgeous wedding!

    Grace and Alex got married in May at the rustic DIY Wedding Knipe Hall, which is an old barn in Penrith. It was one of the most fun weddings I’ve shot and Grace & Alex absolutely nailed it!

    The excitement before the wedding

    Grace got ready in the main bedroom at the barn Graces family and bridesmaids, and the atmosphere was so energetic. Graces parents were preparing the VW Beetle & Camper van for photos, giving it a last minute polish and adding garlands of flowers to the bumpers, whilst the girls were having their hair and makeup done.

     Alex got ready at the Mardale Inn with the lads and they arrived at Knipe Hall in the pristine camper van which Alex drove himself,  then they cracked open a few beers for the ceremony, helping to calm any last minute nerves.

    The Wedding bit

    The ceremony was an intimate service in the barn. Completely breaking with tradition; which I love, Grace  walked down the aisle with her Grandad and her Dad, it was super cute and such a nice touch. During the ceremony Billy, Grace & Alexs son gave them the thumbs up as he presented them with their rings. It was so personal and so unique. Graces cousin sang and played the guitar whilst the couple signed the legal bits and everyone enjoyed his music, a lovely way of stamping your ceremony with a personal touch.

    The party

    The reception was out in the garden at the venue. They chose DIY Wedding at Knipe Hall, as a barn wedding is what they had dreamed of and this meant they could spend more time decorating it to their own style. It was a rustic wedding, which is my favourite. I love shooting  Knipe Hall weddings because the building is just incredible. The light in the rooms and the barn is just beautiful, it’s a real fave of mine!!

    During the reception drinks, Grace, Alex and myself all jumped in the Beetle, sunroof down and drove over to Hawes Water.

    With the couple getting married in the Lake District they really wanted to grab some couples portraits by an actual Lake. To do this, it meant Grace climbing over a dry stone wall in her dress and shoes. She did, and she also said “I have sheep poo on my dress already, so it doesn’t matter if my dress gets dirty”, I just loved her for that!

    The couple

    Grace got in touch with me after searching on Instagram for Knipe Hall wedding photographers and their enquiry was really touching. They said they wanted a relaxed photographer, someone who had shot there before and I loved that they just really liked my style of photography.

    Grace and Alex’s DIY Knipe Hall wedding was so much fun and everything I get excited about when I am shooting a wedding. Here’s a snippet of their wonderful day!
