Mr & Mrs Wiltshire- Villa Tolomei, Tuscany Italy, Italian Wedding

Villa Tolomei- Tuscany Wedding Oh my gosh where do I begin! Becci and Joel initially got in touch with me to see if I would consider doing a Tuscany wedding! Yes please! We met to discuss everything and then had their engagement session at Hengistbury Head back in May 2017. We had such a great time and I knew their wedding was going to be incredible. I flew to Pisa on the Monday morning and got the train to Florence. Florence is such a beautiful city and I can completely understand how they fell in love with the place. Becci even said her favourite part of the wedding planning was visiting Florence for all the wedding organisation! I mooched around the cobbled streets and found the best gelato bar (thanks for the recommendation Becci!) then met the couple and all the guests in a garden bar in the evening. Tuesday was Tuscany wedding day! We got up early and I went with the girls up the hill to the stunning Villa Tolomei. The villa used to be a historic Renaissance home but has been renovated and restored into a 5* luxury hotel. The villa is surrounded by the green hills of Marignolle and has a panoramic view of the Florentine hills down towards the old town. “We loved the Italian style villa with the large outdoor space and especially loved the views from the back of the venue and the driveway entrance. We wanted the majority of our wedding to be outside in the sunshine too.” It was 8:30am when we arrived at the venue and the ceremony wasn’t until 3pm so we had...

Kate and Ricky- Ocean Riviera Paradise, Riviera Maya, Mexico!

Destination Wedding Photography Now Kate and Ricky’s wedding was one I’d be looking forward to for such a long time! These two decided to tie the knot in the beautiful Riviera Maya for a Mexico wedding. The idea came to them after watching their friends (Ricky’s best man) get married a few years earlier in the Dominican Republic. These two have such a lovely story. They first met as family friends, as their dads are total best buddies. One night Ricky was a little bit drunk and asked Kate to go out with just him, not their families too. The rest is history! I arrived on the Monday night at the beautiful Ocean Riviera Resort. I met with Kate and Ricky on the Tuesday (by the pool over a couple of cocktails) to discuss the wedding plans- I think all client meetings should be done this way right!? The wedding morning was a crazy blur, I split my time between the girls hotel block and the boys to capture both Kate and Ricky getting ready. The Ceremony They decided to change their ceremony from the beachfront to a private rooftop terrace overlooking palm trees towards the ocean. This was such a lovely idea as it was intimate for their guests only- away from the hustle of hotel life. The glass balcony surrounded the terrace to show off the view. Kate and Ricky wed under a white gazebo at 4:30pm in gorgeous Mexican sunlight surrounded by their closest friends and family. They even finger printed on their marriage certificate for authenticity in true Mexican style! Their drinks reception was set...
