Destination wedding photography Italy!
Angela & Marks Italian wedding.
Angela and Mark decided they wanted a destination wedding/holiday and they could not have chosen a nicer location! They decided on Umbria for their combined wedding-honeymoon and chose a beautiful villa called La Preghiera. Originally a 12th Century monastery, it is an historic house which has been restored and offers bed and breakfast accommodation near Perugia, Assisi, Lake Trasimeno and Città di Castello.
It was seriously one of the nicest places I’ve ever stayed. They even had a chapel on the grounds which is where the ‘business’ side of things happened.
The owners of the estate, John and Liliana Tunstill, were so welcoming and even took the time to show us around and tell us all about the history of the buildings and the land it sits on.
I even got to go on a day trip to Perugia and Assisi and saw the sights. You can’t help but be awe struck at the decadent cathedrals and statues. They are so massive. Plus the food, well lets just say I came home with a little extra luggage around my middle 😉
Of course the wedding was a small but perfectly formed affair and the wedding photography was easy. A ceremony in the little chapel followed by a modest lunch which we all had a hand in creating! It was completely relaxed and everybody had a wonderful week away!
I would like to add a massive humongous congratulations to both Angela and Mark and their entire family, two families coming together as one is always an amazing thing. Here’s to many many happy years as a happily married couple and thanks for inviting me and letting me stay with you to do your wedding photography.
