I have a cracker of a wedding for you this Monday morning… I hardly know where to begin with it! There is just so much prettiness here I think it might be my all time longest photo post!! If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Carmen & Ingo from Germany (who shot this incredibly Indian wedding), and not only that, we’ve also become good friends through this crazy online world! And what’s even more exciting is that they’re heading this way next summer so if you’re in the market for a photographer well you could have some German superstars alongside you on your big day. Get in touch with them if you’re interested.
From Carmen & Ingo… “We are super excited about this wedding. Not only because we were shooting the wedding of fellow photographers, also because it was a destination wedding in beautuful Italy. When Angelika and Artur first contacted us with the idea of having the wedding in Tuscany, we knew that it would be outstanding. It was 41° Celsius when we arrived in Montecatini Terme, and it was not forecasted to get any “cooler” for the Saturday wedding. So we got prepared for a new temperature record to shoot in. And it was!
During our location scouting on Friday, we met with Angelika and Artur and seeing this amazing location Villa Sermolli in Buggiano Castello made us almost sleepless that night. It is simply an amazing place to get married. The day started very laid-back with their friends and family getting ready in the wonderful rooms of the villa. Everything was already well-decorated and set-up for the party to start. It is unbelievable how much time these guys, together with friends and family, put into all the wonderful details and DIY projects. A very emotional and personal ceremony officiated by Angelika’s brother-in-law made for a perfect start for the very intimate wedding party. The time flew by actually in the garden with some little games, canapés and drinks. We could not wait to head out in the area around the Villa to do some couple shots with this gorgeous looking couple during the best light of the day. Have a special look at the outstanding wedding dress, which was made by Angelika’s cousin herself. It was breathtakingky beautiful. We had simply the best light for a shoot. We love those soft colors in Tuscany — the trees, the olive gardens and old Italian streets and houses.”
