Sherborne Abbey in Dorset, UK

England has some amazing wedding venues with a lot of tradition, and Sherborne Abbey in Dorset is just one of those venues. It’s in the county of Dorset in the South of England, and the Abbey has been a place of worship since AD 705. Such an amazing building to photograph a wedding in, and it can be a bot overwhelming. Whenever I find myself photographing in these kinds of places, it’s good to remember that it’s all about the people and the relationships. Using the impressive building and surroundings as a scene setter, it’s important not to get drawn away from the things that matter – the people!

Although I’m based in Hertfordshire and London, I do get commissioned to photograph weddings all over the UK and some destination weddings too. I’ve photographed a couple of fine venues in the South West, including Maunsel House and the Symondsbury Estate, but this was my first time at Sherborne Abbey. Before I photographed there, I met Laura and her sister at Holbrook House Hotel for some preparation photos. They were getting ready on their own, and it made for some lovely intimate pictures of the two sisters.

The Abbey did not disappoint as far as providing such a splendid background for this wonderful wedding.

Getting Married in Tuscany – A Destination Wedding in Italy

This was a wonderful destination wedding in Cortona – Tuscany. Alyssa and Cody chose the Borgo Bastia Creti for the venue and the getting ready and then the town hall of Cortona, not so far away, for getting married.

The Borgo di Bastia Creti is an exclusive location between the green hills of the Umbria countryside and I think is one of the most beautiful location for a wedding in Umbria.

Take a look and, if you’ll love the photos, don’t forget to share them!!

DREAMING ELOPEMENT IN TUSCANY, PIENZA

Danielle and Brad came from Australia. They loved travelling and good food and decided to elope in Tuscany, exactly in Pienza in the stunning Tuscany hills.

Wedding Photography In Rome, Italy

Abel & Geisell are a couple from Miami, USA that chose Rome for their wedding destination photos in Italy. Like other clients, they reached me after viewing my full wedding portfolio on my website.

I was intrigued by the explicit (and unusual) request when I read their first email: plan a wedding portrait session in Rome at night in some of the most symbolic and representative places of the city: Pantheon, Colosseum, Spanish Steps, St. Peter’s Square. The perfect time to capture pictures without the daily traffic and fully appreciate the beauty of a magical place.

In the “ethernal city” every street, monument, the building is the perfect background for gorgeous & memorable pictures. In Rome, you can feel the real Italy and his millenary History!

Their dreams became real! I was truly honored to photograph this couple in one of the most beautiful city of the earth. It was a very pleasant and enjoyable night, spent with lovely people who have allowed me to shoot amazing wedding pictures in a fantastic location.

Enjoy!
