Hey there, today I want to bring you back at the end of 2017, when I photographed this intimate wedding in a private villa located in Umbria. It has been amazing to take part in such a private event and to feel so welcomed by Lyric, Hayes and all their guest. They made me feel not just like a photographer but a true part of their special wedding day.
The Villa is located in Umbria, really close to an old monastery, at the top of a hill that overlooks the underlying valley. To bring you in the right mood, we are at the beginning of Autumn, and a vibrant light made the air incredibly clear. In this part of the year the days are typically still warm but – when the evening begins – the fresh wind that gently blows let you feel winter is not that far. If you have never been in central Italy I guess it’s hard to figure out how it feels, but try to help you with pictures and do a little effort!
In this timeless setting, enclosed in the courtyard of Villa degli Ulivi, the intimate wedding ceremony took place, with the newlyweds surrounded just by their closest friend and families. The day closed with a candlelight dinner, beautifully arranged with an amazing setting, and accompanied by delicious local food and wine from the surrounding lands. Before dinner, we had a few time for some intimate portraits. We tried to keep it simple, as the entire day was. And please – PLEASE – have a look at her outstanding wedding dress (which she was obsessed with!) by a designer named Leanne Marshall.
