An Italian wedding day at the Castello di Titignano

Castello di Titignano wedding

So with a lot of the weddings that I have the pleasure of photographing, the couples tend to come to me through referrals. Recommendations and referrals are the foundation of my wedding photography business, this for me is how I want to grow my business; steadily and organically. Marcus & Sophie’s Italian wedding was no different. I first met Marcus and Sofia at their friend’s wedding which I was photographing up in North Yorkshire the previous year. After seeing the wedding photographs from the wedding, and a few emails later, I was all booked in for their 4-day Italian wedding!

The venue was the impressive Castello di Titignano, which is a small castle perched atop a hill in Umbria surrounded by medieval outbuildings. The spectacular location reminded me of the Yorkshire Dales a little bit, but the Italian version! Sofia’s family home was only a 20-minute car journey away so it was perfectly placed for everyone involved.

The day of the wedding was a Friday and the day before the wedding guests had been kept busy with activities such as football, yoga, and pool games. It goes without saying that the food kept on coming throughout the day, fresh bread, salads… the colours and textures were just a joy to see and eat! Fresh, authentic, Italian food… Belisimo!

The wedding ceremony

The wedding ceremony was beautiful. It took place outside between a small clearing of evergreens and pine trees at around 4pm (it’s a tad cooler in the late afternoon). Sofia looked amazing as she walked down the aisle holding on to her proud Dads arm beaming with joy and excitement. With some heartfelt personal readings from Sofia’s sister and best friend, Marcus & Sofia was married! Yay!

From the clearing in the wooded area, guests moved over to the courtyard for reception drinks and nibbles. Here a local live band began knocking out the Italian classics (Kings of Leon esque style) and the wedding was in full swing.

As well as having a strong family theme to this wedding, a lot of Sofia & Marcus’ friends got involved in some way, be that singing with the live band or DJing later at the house party (which took place in the castles underground vaults – how flipping cool)! Everyone seemed to want to help make this a day to remember, talking of which I forgot to mention that Marcus’s Mum created all the wedding floristry from scratch that morning with a little help from Marcus’s brother’s girlfriend!

This wedding had it all, family, friends, great food and some crazy dad dancing towards the end. I sometimes have to remind myself of how lucky I am to do a job that I love dearly and how rare it is to feel so passionate about something you can do all year round! I’m eternally grateful that I get to experience the sheer joyfulness that a wedding day brings.  

Marcus & Sophie, thank you so much for bringing me along to capture your Italian masterpiece of a wedding! Your wedding seemed to be all about food, drink, and family, then more food, then even more food – it just kept coming! If that’s the Italian way, then sign me up!

      Thanks, Joab, yeah the light can be so harsh out there, but sometimes it just adds to the overall feel to the photos.:-)
