Romance & Laughter in the Rolling Hills of Tuscany // A Preview

This time last week I had just returned from the most wonderful few days in Italy doing what I love. I have dreamed of photographing a destination wedding in Italy for a long time now so when Kelly & Hannes asked me to photograph their wedding just a few months ago I literary jumped at the chance! Especially one amongst the rolling hilltops of Tuscany! For me it was a dream come true.

There are really not enough superlatives to describe how I feel about this utterly awesome wedding! Kelly and Hannes wanted an intimate day surrounded by their closest family and of course their four beautiful children. They chose one of the most delightfully rustic Italian venues Locanda Casanuova in Figline Valdarno just outside of Florence which has the most stunning views, vineyard, olive grove and not to forget the delicious food. The family at Locanda Casanuova bent over backwards to give Kelly and Hannes and their guests the warmest of welcomes and the most perfect day, helping them source all their details from the flowers to the beautiful place names on the table. It all came together in the most visually beautiful way and oozed rustic Italian charm.

Kelly looked utterly incredible in her stunning lace gown by The Case of the Curious Bride and glowed all day long, Hannes could barely take his eyes off her! It really was a magical, super cool, quirky and totally unforgettable day.

Oh and did I mention the LIGHT? Oh the light! I got a little giddy about the awesome Italian light! If you are planning a destination wedding PLEASE give me a call, I would be A LOT excited to hear from you!

So, as this is supposed to be a preview I won't get too carried away with it all and just let you get to the photographs...
