Destination Wedding at Rosciano Castle

We had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful destination wedding right in the heart of the Umbrian countryside.

Castello di Rosciano was the location chosen by Asli and Stefano for a simple, warm and intimate ceremony, with friends coming from all over the world.

From the bride:

We thought of Umbria because its midway between Milan (where we live) and Rome (where we have emotional connections). We know this region very well because Stefano’s father was born in these hills and we have a small family house where we often go for the weekends. Umbria is the perfect combination of relaxation, good food, friendliness and history.

We have visited a few locations but as soon as we arrived to Castello di Rosciano, we knew that it was the place we were looking for. Stefano said: “A princess like you deserves a castle”. From the courtyard of the castle there’s a spectacular view overlooking the hills of Bettona, Assisi and Perugia, and castle itself offers a setting which gives a magic touch to the atmosphere.

The ceremony was held on the lawn with the stupendous view overlooking the Umbrian hills.

Thanks to our family and friends it was an unforgettable, unique and colorful Turkish-Italian wedding. Special thanks to Andrea & Federica for capturing all these great moments with his camera.

Rosie & Mike Marry In A Valley

I grew up in Dorset, not far from this beautiful valley in Cranborne Chase. It was used for the misty finale in the big screen version Pride and Prejudice. Understandably Rosie & Mike decided this was the perfect romantic setting for their big day. Although there was a tiny chapel in the valley, they opted for the comparatively spacious All Saints Church in Broadchalke to accommodate their many guests. Rosie’s Dad is a huge car enthusiast, and it looked like Rosie’s new husband shared that passion – albeit on a smaller budget!

I love how cars can become such characters in the narrative of a wedding, even appearing in the groups! Back in the DP marquee, the wedding continued into the evening. It was a lovely mix of energy on the dance floor and peaceful relaxation in front of the fire pits and slow running waters. A special secluded spot.

Italian Big Wedding, beautiful color of Sicily

Getting married in Sicily has the bonus of a warm welcome that is grown and broadcast throughout the wedding.

Marriages in Sicily also express only see the photos, all the power, energy, and charisma that gives this country to its inhabitants.

Anna and Robert were married in their town, Alcamo, a town in the province of Trapani in Sicily. After the “yes” in the church, we went to take pictures of the magnificent harbor of Castellammare del Golfo, we toured the bay with their boat to capture the beautiful colors of the Sicilian waters.

Friends (many) and family who welcomed them at Baglio della Luna with great joy! A reception was cheerful and funny, I did not stop for a moment; but it was worth it … to capture the best moments and spontaneous their best day!

A Meeting of Cultures – Wedding in Abruzzo, Italy

I particularly love the weddings in which the bride and the groom belong to different cultures, in this case, Italy and South Korea, East and West.

While the bride chose a classic wedding dress, her mother and aunts have chosen to wear traditional Korean clothes.
The Catholic religious ceremony was held in Abruzzo in the picturesque church of Santa Maria Maggiore in the historic center of Lanciano, the birthplace of the groom.

The reception was held in the fairytale setting of the Castello di Septe, where Koreans guests have surprised everyone for their sympathy and especially the ability to dance the famous Gangnam Style Korean rapper Psy.

Luxury Wedding at the Dorchester Hotel | London

There’s something about a wedding in the capital – the vibrancy, the buzz, and for Ijay and Tolu, the familiar landmarks of their lives and their love together. When you think of a wedding in London, there’s no venue more refined than the Dorchester, with its jewelled candelabras and glistening chandeliers. The celebration of this couple didn’t start at the Dorchester – it began in a small church nearby, a humble location that echoed the class of the bride and groom in every detail, from the pink and white hues of the floral arrangements to the matching pink traditional dress of their female guests – all set against a beautiful backdrop of stained glass windows. The delicate simplicity of the building was a pleasure to photograph, as were the wedding party, with a beaming smile in every capture.

After much singing and celebration, whilst the rest of the party waited at the Dorchester for their Bride and Groom, we took the opportunity to whisk them away to Knightsbridge for more photographs. Ijay and Tolu were so natural in their photographs, at first we were convinced they were professional models, but quickly realised we were watching the love do the talking, so evident, they needed no posing.

Stepping off of the streets of London and into the hotel’s 1930s ballroom as we caught up with the rest of the party was like taking a quick step back in time. Tall draping curtains, tables adorned with candles, a mix of roses, lillies and hydrangeas arranged in their centrepieces by NBFlowers, and a table full of pink candy put together by Gill from Sweet Hollywood, the creator of all the event’s sweet treats. Jennifer from Planned2Perfection had designed the room perfectly to suit Ijay and Tolu, and the low pink of the lights was the tipping of the hat to their theme. Traditionally after the meal came the speeches, so personal and heartfelt it was enough to make anyone emotional. We watched as they cut their classic six-tiered white cake, the groom’s arms lovingly around his bride.

Often forgotten about these days at weddings is the father/daughter dance, and we were lucky enough at Ijay and Tolu’s wedding to see such a lovely tradition, before the newlyweds took to the floor. As they began their first dance as husband and wife, beautiful petal confetti rained down on them, and it fell throughout the whole song. Capturing their happiness through the petals might just have been our favourite moment of the day, and no doubt one of theirs.

The couple’s portrait session later in the day went just as smoothly as the afternoons. We were wowed all over again by the nature of this couple, so lovingly photogenic, and there was just so much to capture with these guys that we ended up spending 12 hours sharing in their happy day. It was a pleasure to shoot for Ijay and Tolu, and we wish them all the best for their future.
