Maria and Alfredo’s wedding was the perfect balance of modern and traditional elements amid their beautiful Tuscany setting. Before departing for the ceremony, I caught a few snaps of the bride in her hotel room. Maria arrived at the church with her father and beautiful little bridesmaid, carrying her bouquet of roses and sunflowers, a stole around her shoulders and elegant long gloves on her arms. Their guests looked on as the vows were read, apart from the little ones who was more interested in me than the ceremony! Rings and vows exchanged, the beaming couple left amid a shower of rice.
The backdrop of the church was ideal for a collection of family and friends’ shots, captured everyone in their wedding finery. Even the children joined and smiled for the camera. Then they both jumped into their antique Fiat, bedecked with ribbons and headed off to the reception. The location sat amid the rolling fields that Tuscany is known for and the couple posed amid beautiful roses. As the sun began to set, I took a few snaps of the couple around the pool. Inside, the excitement of the day was starting to show on some of the younger guests but for the adults, it was time for a celebratory glass of champagne or two.
