SAINT GALGANO ABBEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // JOE + MARIKO
Destination Wedding Italy | August 2015
Joe and Mariko love Tuscany very much. They are often here and it’s been natural for them to choose it as destination for their wedding. What other setting could be better than the ancient Abbey of San Galgano for the celebration?
A magical place hidden in the pristine heart of Tuscany, between Siena and Grosseto, in the ancient Via Francigena.
I had already met the couple during their previous trip to Tuscany and since then we had kept in touch. When I reached the venue in early morning, therefore, I firstly decided to immerse myself in the nature, wandering around the abbey, to breathe the atmosphere deeply and immerse myself in the pathos of the day. The abbey and everything around it is truly “food for the soul”. When I met the couple later, I could see the light in their eyes and everything was clear to me. Love is magic, and I could imagine nothing different for them in that magical place.
I’m really happy to be their Saint Galgano Abbey wedding photographer.
After the ceremony, they left the Abbey with a beautiful vintage car to reach the estate Podernovo at Monticiano, where relatives and friends were waiting for them to celebrate their party.
A beautiful outdoor dinner and then a dancing night ended their special day.
The wedding was well cared in every detail, as Rachel (WeddingSmiths) always does, and I’m glad I could contribute with my work to make their day unique.
Have a good trip guys!!
