A Castello di Meleto Wedding is something to behold. Being Irish, we have a love of all things Italian, but I had yet to make it to Tuscany to photograph a wedding. Then, last winter, Angela & Tom got in touch with me at Aspect Photography to photograph their wedding in Tuscany. It was a cold evening, and I could vividly picture the sun-soaked landscape, I was delighted that they chose me to be their wedding photographer.
Fast forward eight months, and here we were. At the spectacular Castello di Meleto in the middle of a heatwave, the temperature was touching 40c, but it didn’t matter. There were plenty of ways to keep cool with two swimming pools and a bar with easy access to some Aperol Spritz! Is this work??!
The wedding day itself was something to behold. It was perfect. From the laid back preparations to a fantastic ceremony under the huge oak tree to the band leading all the guests back to the drinks reception.
We got rain. Yes! And a little thunder but it was only a passing shower. Once the sun emerged, we made our way to get a quick few couple shots and made the most of the beautiful Tuscan landscape.
The party was well and truly underway. Speeches took place throughout the meal. They were followed by a very theatrical assembly of the wedding cake! Tom and Angela had an impromptu first dance with the band playing int he background.
It all moved inside to the bar where, like Irish Weddings, the party got going. Amazing time. And a pleasure to witness.
