Fairy tale elopement photos at Meleto Castle, Tuscany

What happens when two people who are deeply in love meet a dreamy location and a professional photographer? Well, you can see it yourself through the gallery of Emily and Nicholas’s elopement photos at Meleto Castle in Chianti, Tuscany. Get inspired! 

Emily and Nicholas: plans might change, love doesn’t 

When this beautiful couple contacted me for the first time, it was 2019. Their idea was to come to Italy the following year, but we all know what happened. Covid came and it turned upside down everyone’s plans – including Emily and Nicholas’s ones. 

But they weren’t discouraged: their dream to visit Tuscany was still steady. We kept in touch over the months, then years, and finally they had the chance to fly from the U.S.A. to the Chianti region in the summer of 2022. On this occasion, we shot the romantic elopement photos that you can see in the gallery at the bottom of this page. 

A touch of vintage thanks to the outfits chosen by the newlyweds, the grace of the fresh flowers of the bouquet, an incredible venue like Meleto Castle, and the power of love: together, they won over the passing of time, and the photos of these splendid people are proof of it. 

Elopement photos in a dreamy castle

Close your eyes and imagine one of the most wonderful castles in all of Tuscany, whose charm dates back to the Middle Age and shines even brighter thanks to the recent renovations. Picture its elegant garden, sprinkled with seasonal flowers and overlooking the iconic rolling hills of Chianti covered in vineyards. And don’t forget the picturesque cypress-lined path, an ideal frame for unforgettable elopement photos. Now you can open your eyes, and see all of this in front of you right here.

Besides the historic allure of Meleto Castle, what makes these images so unique is the complicity between Emily and Nicholas. Their gestures, gazes, smiles, kisses: everything talks about their love story. And the glorious light of the golden hour is just one additional piece to an experience they will surely cherish every day of their lives.

If you are also dreaming of an elopement and want photos taken by a professional who knows its territory by heart – and knows how to make the most out of it – get in touch with me. Together, we will make your event even more memorable.
