Jurian and Marjolein are such a gorgeous couple. From the Netherlands they chose a wedding in a Tuscany farmhouse, in the shadow of a large oak tree. Me and Duccio left Florence and in two hours we arrived in the rustic Podere Bonsecco. The heat was strong but both us and the couple were enthusiastic. While Duccio was busy with the photos of the bride’s preparation, I went to the garden where I found the big oak and I started photographing details. The set up by Anita, the wedding planner was lovely.
The guests, mostly Dutch and English, arrived. Despite the hot July weather, everyone was sporting sober and elegant outfits. The symbolic ceremony begun. A simple, serene ceremony where, every now and then, some laughter was calming the anxiety of the moment. After, we went for the aperitif to the pool. The spouses relaxed, and then we returned to the shadow of the big oak for couple portraits. Intimate, natural and spontaneous photos, just a handful of minutes. Then we took a bit of group photos with relatives and friends before sitting for the dinner.
The area where the tables were placed was stunning: an aisle with a large Tuscan olive-tree, between the two stone buildings of the farm, all lightened by bulbs hanging from long wires. So suggestive! A bit of reportage photos from the dinner, friends’ speeches and the cut of the cake. After that, off to a shack converted to a colorful ballroom and bar! Dance music with sax accompaniment was phenomenal! Everyone had fun, even thanks to a Photoboot set up by Duccio.
A wonderful day, a fantastic wedding in tuscany at farmhouse. And again thanks to Duccio, who gave me the opportunity to join him for this wedding in the Tuscan countryside.
