Dinner under the stars

Dinner under the stars

This was an elegant “haute couture” wedding designed with style and a great taste!  Every little detail mattered to Maria, the bride to be!

“She thought it all through and had it all under control” – Hugo, the future groom assured us.

When you have a clear vision of what your wedding should look like, do not conform, be persistent and have it your way! Maria managed to have a little chapel opened just for them, she insisted on replacing traditional name cards with carefully selected stones and despite the rain prediction she hosted an outdoor candle diner under the stars. She even kept the wedding venue a secret until the very end.

The most important thing about planning your wedding is to know that the planning ends when the wedding day begins! Maria and Hugo found the happy medium and proved that it is possible to have your perfect wedding vision come true and still fully enjoy playing the leading role on the big day.

They knew how to live and appreciate every single moment! They laughed and cried and danced and laughed even more!

They carefully picked a team of professionals and put themselves in their hands. The wedding planner Claudia & co. from Entre Tonos Pastel was on top of every single detail. The cheery stuff from the venue Xalet del Nin made everyone feel welcome and at home. The catering Sensacions prepared sensational cocktail and dinner under the stars of the Mediterranean Sea.

It was nothing but perfect!

Andreu! Que si estamos recuperados? IMPOSIBLE!!! Seguimos eufóricos, emocionados, flipados,…en definitiva FELICES. Ni en nuestros mejores sueños podíamos imaginar algo así. Y tus fotos DE ESCÁNDALO!! No nos equivocamos en absoluto con el feeling que nos transmitiste desde el primer momento. Esperamos que hayáis disfrutado tanto como nosotros de todos y cada uno de los momentos de nuestro día. Nos sentimos inmensamente felices de haberos tenido en nuestro equipo.”

Maria and Hugo

Destination Wedding in Tuscany

Destination Wedding in Tuscany

I met Florin Stefan (https://florinstefan.ro/) for the second time at the Fearless Conference 2019 in Aachen (https://www.fearlessphotographers.com/). The conference is always a nice opportunity to see friends from all over the world again and share our photographic experiences with each other. With Florin, we got to talk about our plans for 2019. He told me he was traveling to Italy in May to photograph a wedding in Tuscany. Obviously, immediately I offered myself immediately to come as a second photographer and he quickly agreed. So here we were in Tuscany, pouring rain under the cloudy sky. But this didn’t affect anyone’s attitude or mood. That´s one of the things I love more about destination weddings. Everyone is there on holidays but on top of that, they have the opportunity to enjoy a wedding with family and friends in a completely different context as they usually would. The bride and groom, Rumanians based in The Netherlands, they got a good mix of friends from back home and from all over the world. From the very beginning everyone made me feel very welcome and part of the team. One of the things I love the most about being a second shooter at a wedding is that you can take off your back the responsibility that comes as the main shooter. You are there to help in anyway you can, but also to enjoy and have fun photographing, almost as doing it for pleasure. You can find angles, perspectives and moments that otherwise, being the main photographer; you wouldn´t always have the time and the patience to spot. The weather forecast wasn´t very optimistic, but that didn´t stop the bride and groom to have an outdoor wedding. It was an orthodox ceremony and I loved it. It is always very interesting to see different kinds of religious celebrations rather than the ones we are used to.  It´s a privilege to observe and learn from different cultures and traditions by being an spectator in such an important day of their life and also to have the luxury to capture it. By the time we were ready for the cocktail, Florin had already ordered the clouds to open up (there is nothing he cannot achieve) and we enjoyed the last rays of sunshine before dinner. By the end everyone was ready to party to commemorate these amazing few days in Tuscany. tuscany destination weddingtuscany destination wedding toscana wedding toscana wedding groom preparation toscana wedding toscana wedding bride preparation toscana wedding bridemaids Tuscany wedding, Toscana wedding, Toscana boda, get married in Tuscany, Tuscany wedding planner, get married in Italy, Italy wedding planner, Italy destination wedding, Italy wedding, Tuscany destination wedding, Italian wedding, Rumanian wedding in Italy, Italy wedding photography, Tuscany wedding photography, Italian wedding photographer, Tuscany wedding photographer, bride, bride to be, bride to be 2020, bride to be 2021, groom, bridesmaids, wedding dress, getting ready, wedding ring, outdoor ceremony, orthodox ceremony, religious ceremony, outdoor wedding, happiness, father of the bride, fun, wedding, wedding photography, wedding photographer, crazy party, party wedding, fun wedding, toscana wedding toscana wedding tuscany wedding planner flower girls tuscany wedding tuscany wedding planner crazy wedding partycrazy wedding party tuscany wedding planner mediterranean destination wedding mediterranean destination wedding crazy wedding partytuscany wedding planner mediterranean destination wedding mediterranean destination wedding mediterranean destination wedding tuscany wedding planner tuscany wedding planner tuscany wedding planner outdoor ceremony outdoor ceremony outdoor ceremony orthodox wedding orthodox wedding orthodox wedding orthodox wedding orthodox wedding tuscany destination weddingorthodox wedding orthodox wedding religious outdoor ceremony religious outdoor orthodox ceremony religious outdoor ceremonyfather happiness confetti time tuscany happiness bride and bridemaids tuscany destination wedding love tuscany destination wedding tuscany destination wedding tuscany destination wedding tuscany destination wedding tuscany destination wedding bride and groom tuscany wedding bride and bridemaids outdoor wedding tuscany selfie time wedding dinner tuscany wedding tuscany wedding planner first dance bride and groom first dance bride and groom tuscany wedding party tuscany wedding party tuscany wedding party tuscany wedding party crazy wedding party crazy wedding party crazy wedding party crazy wedding party crazy wedding party crazy wedding party crazy wedding party crazy wedding party
