This is a portrait of the bride and groom after the ceremony during the sunset in the countryside around the resort.
A story of two wonderful people and their intimate wedding in Val d’Orcia celebrated at the splendid Resort Locanda, Tuscany in Castiglione d’Orcia. A wedding that I loved very much for the accurate simplicity and spontaneity of Ilaria and Joel, a young couple, sparkling and out of the box.
Ilaria and Joel have chosen to marry at the Locanda in Tuscany, a beautiful old farmhouse nestled in the countryside a few kilometers from Bagno Vignoni. The park, the swimming pool and the view of the Tuscan countryside, have made this intimate wedding in Val d’Orcia really unique and special.
The uniqueness of the place is perfectly combined with their uniqueness.
A couple in love, fun, out of the box. I spent a wonderful day with them, almost as if I knew them long ago. I loved very much their will to live their wedding day together in all aspects, from the time of their getting ready, to the outdoor ceremony, going against the usual tradition.
