Lisa + Patrick - a destination wedding in Veneto

Sometimes it happens that you meet a couple and you suddenly feel a special bond with them. You know, when you think that if you only lived closer, you'd probably go out for coffee with them.

The first thing Lisa told us was "Oh my god, was that a thunder?". The sweetest bride, with the sweetest fears that her special day could have been spoiled by some unwanted rain. But luckily, after grey stormy clouds, the sun arrived, and their day was exactly as they planned, with one of the most emotional ceremonies we've ever shot, and a couple who got the real meaning of this all: to be in love and to celebrate love with your dear ones. So thank you guys, thank you for having us with you and your welcoming friends, your unconventional families, and all your special mums. 

A volte capita che si conosca una coppia e si senta fin dal primo momento un legame particolare con loro. Quelo che ti fa pensare che se viveste vicini, probabilmente vi vedreste spesso per un caffè.

La prima cosa che Lisa ci ha detto è stata "Oddio, era un tuono quello?". Una sposa tenera, con paure altrettanto tenere che la sua giornata potesse essere rovinata dalla pioggia. Ma per fortuna, dopo nuvole grigie e cielo da tempesta, è arrivato il sole, e la loro giornata è stata esattamente come avevano immaginato, con una delle cerimonie più commoventi a cui abbiamo assistito, e una coppia che ha colto il vero significato che sta dietro a tutto questo: amarsi, e celebrare il proprio amore con le persone più care. Grazie ragazzi, per averci volute con voi e con i vostri amici, così accoglienti e gentili, le vostre famiglie fuori dall'ordinario, e tutte le vostre mamme.

Phoebe + Craig - Apulian Destination Wedding at Masseria Potenti

For any wedding photographer there are some dream destinations. Our style is airy and full of light, and of course we love to shoot in places where there is no shortage of sun, white reflections and subtle shadows from the trees. Places where the sunsets are enjoyed to the fullest and the people are easy going and welcoming.

An Apulian wedding sums up all of this, so we need to send a big thank you to Phoebe and Craig and to Chic Weddings in Italy who wanted us there with them, in the amazing Masseria Potenti.

Phoebe and Craig are beautiful. No, we mean, really beautiful, like, a gift for any photographer. A sweet Greek girl and a super cool Scottish guy, making the most relaxed and laid back couple - when we first met, on the morning of the wedding, they were in their swimsuits, enyoing the sun and some cocktails and not a bit anxious for the day ahead. As we said, a dream couple.

Enjoy their picture perfect wedding, with an al fresco ceremony, orange flowers and cactuses as a decoration, a true Apulian dinner and wild dances - if you have never seen men in scottish kilts taking part in traditional Greek dances, well, that's your chance.

LOCATION & CATERING: Masseria Potenti

Alessandra + Paolo - chic wedding in oltrepo vineyards

Appena abbiamo conosciuto Alessandra e Paolo, abbiamo capito che il loro sarebbe stato un matrimonio fuori dal comune, in cui venivano sì rispettate le tradizioni, ma con modi e idee che riflettevano perfettamente la personalità degli sposi. Una chiesetta di campagna, e una cerimonia informale, piena di risate. Una festa intima, in un resort fra i vigneti. Un picnic sull'erba, e a seguire undici tavoli, tutti diversi, in una sala piena di vetrate, per godere appieno del tramonto. Una sposa che è anche grafico, che ha pensato a ogni dettaglio. E soprattutto, due sposi bellissimi e innamorati.

As soon as we got to know Alessandra and Paolo, we just knew their wedding would have been out of ordinary. Traditions were respected, but also reinvented to be consistent with their characters and needs. A little church in the country, and an informal ceremony full of laughs. An intimate party in a resort between the vineyards. A picnic on the grass, followed by eleven tables, each differently decorated, in a room full of big windows, to enjoy the sunset to the most. A bride that is also a graphic designer, and thought about every tiniest detail. And most of all, two beautiful people, deeply in love.

This wedding was also featured on Junebug Weddings.
