Tuscan wedding photographers have it good, stunning views and great light what’s not to love?
It went something like this….
Jeff, “Rob, Sarah and I are getting married”
Me, “That’s fantastic news mate, you guys are made for each other. I’m made up for you both”
Jeff, “Will you come out to Italy and shoot it for us?”
I was made up they were getting married and thrilled to be asked to photograph it – I love these guys. Sarah and Jeff are brilliant friends and also fantastic wedding photographers with lots of wedding photographer friends – so no pressure then!
The weather was horrendous when I arrived at Multipulciano Town Hall the day before to meet Sarah and Jeff. I couldn’t even see the top of the town hall for the heavy mist. Luckily the day of the wedding was spectacular, just as you’d expect in Tuscany in the summer.
Terre di Nano, Tuscany
Sarah and Jeff chose an absolutely stunning venue for their wedding, Terre di Nano, Multipulciano, Tuscany, Italy. The word special doesn’t quite do it justice. It’s not just a beautiful place it’s also totally chilled and the people who run it can’t do enough for you.
Not many weddings start with all the guests chilling in swimming pool but today was always going to be different and that’s exactly how it started.
I headed off to catch up with Sarah for her bridal preparations on the balcony looking out over the vineyard. It was an idyllic setting. Sarah, Katy and her mum spent the morning drinking prosecco while having their hair and makeup done. As everyone was based at Terre di Nano I was able to catch up with Jeff and the rest of the guests too.
It was soon time for me to head into the town centre for the ceremony.
Multipulciano Town Hall
Sara arrived in a glorious Fiat 500 Abarth, the original version not the modern replica – it sounded amazing.
Sarah and Jeff’s ceremony was different from the norm being read in Italian, then translated to English and back again. It all went smoothly and the Italian officials were great. After the vows and the legal bit, the celebrant cracked open a bottle of prosecco and had a drink with them which is a lovely touch compared to back home (no alcohol is allowed in the ceremony room at any time)
Sarah and Jeff walked out into a shower of confetti after which I took a picture of everyone on the steps of the Multipulciano Town Hall. While their guests made their way back to Terre di Nano we were given the opportunity to go to the top of the tower to take photos with the magnificent view of Multipulciano. It sounded like a good idea but in reality it’s not the best plan to have a bride in a long white dress and heels navigating what can only be described as the inside of a chimney. Dark, dusty, dirty with narrow stairs and no windows. Once we started our journey to the top we were not going to be thwarted and Sarah was a trooper. When we arrived at the top the views were as promised ‘spectacular’. We took a few more portraits inside the town hall before heading into a neighbouring town for a wedding portrait shoot…
…well that was the plan. Unfortunately, that gorgeous classic car decided to break down. The good folk of Multipulciano came to the rescue with advice in a foreign language and a push.
Back at Terre di Nano, the party was in full swing. There is so much I could say about this lovely wedding but I think I’ve probably waffled on enough when all you really need to do is look at the pictures below.
If you are looking for a Tuscan wedding photographer I’d love to hear from you.
