Elaine & Matthew | Intimate Destination Wedding in Florence
Photographer: Gabriele Fani photographer for Studio Bonon Photography
The lovely and emotional Elaine and Matthew’s intimate destination wedding in Tuscany took place like many other with the closest friends of the couple into the countryside of Florence in a beautiful and sunny warm day of July. The chosen venue for the “big” event was Villa Le Piazzole near Florence which is a perfect location for weddings like this since offers many options and location for getting ready, ceremony, portrait and reception.
Elaine start their day at “La Terrazza” suite with bridesmaids for make up and hair and during that time I had the opportunity to shot some beautiful photo of bridal accessories, like invitation and the bridal bouquet made this time by Simone Bertini. After I walked down to the “Stella” room for get some snap of Matthew’s getting ready. Then back to Elaine for the final touches and portraits just before her walk down the aisle in the garden near the entrance of the villa.
I really enjoyed the exciting ceremony especially during during the exchanging of rings which was full of emotions and moments!
For portrait Elaine and Matt want to to stay inside the venue so we started the shooting by the Italian garden of the villa and then into the beautiful vineyard. I really love the picture taken from the Royal suite balcony while bride and groom walk together toward the main gate of the garden. Light was absolutely gorgeous! Also beautiful the reception setup near the pool with the usual stunning landscape view of the Florence countryside from the imperial table.
Here are some of my favourites of the day, enjoy it!
