Villa Pitiana Wedding Photographer in Tuscany: We drove up winding mountain roads through the inky darkness of a muggy, mid-September Italian night. It was late when we got to the villa, but we could hear laughing and singing coming from the balcony…the Irish-Vietnamese-Chinese wedding party guests were well into the pre-wedding celebrations. Although it was tempting to join the party, I headed straight to my room – I was here to work! Feeling excited for the wedding day ahead, and with the Celtic folk songs fading away into the night, I drifted into a beautiful Tuscan dream. Villa Pitiana Wedding Photographer in Tuscany
The next morning, I got out of bed and flung the curtains wide open. Golden sunlight poured in warming the cold medieval floors. Before my eyes was the stunning Tuscan vista that I so love. Clay red tiled roofs of nearby villages were dotted in a landscape of olive groves and Cypress trees before a sweeping mountainous backdrop. Villa Pitiana Wedding Photographer in Tuscany
The magical day unfolded as I went to meet Joanne and the girls in her two-storey tall bridal suite. And then I saw the dress…I think my heart stopped for a moment. layers and layers of tulle fabric swirled around a draped wrap bodice, a stunning Vera Wang, “The Diana”. With the heat building up as we approached midday, it was decided that the ceremony would take place in the cool of the Villa’s central courtyard instead of outdoors. Following the ceremony, a champagne and canapes reception awaited us in the lavender-filled gardens of the spectacular medieval Villa Pitiana. All weddings are happy and celebratory occasions, but destination weddings have that added ‘holiday’ feel thrown in – friends and family were super relaxed as they enjoyed the fantastic views of the Tuscan countryside.

Dinner was served al fresco as dusk descended. We managed to make the most of the ‘golden hour’ before sunset with the most honey-delicious, soft and translucent light for our bride and groom portraits – my favourite. Night time held more delights with an incredible dessert table and the jolly melodies of an Irish band that had all the crowd up and dancing. Champagne and wine flowed endlessly, guests danced and laughed in a decadent, Italian celebration. Villa Pitiana Wedding Photographer in Tuscany
Joanne and Ronan are one of the most shy and sweet couples I’ve come across. Their day was so perfect and I’m so very happy for them, wishing you both a very, very happy life together and years of wedded bliss! Salute! Villa Pitiana Wedding Photographer in Tuscany
