Last year I made the journey over to the beautiful town of Barga to photograph the wedding of Ryan & Sarah. This was my first trip to Italy and I was blown away by Tuscany and its rugged beauty.
I first met Ryan & Sarah at a wedding I shot a couple of years ago and when I heard about their plans to tie the knot in Tuscany, I was super keen to be involved! The day couldn’t have been more perfect. Ryan & Sarah wanted to do a first look before the ceremony and to escape the pre wedding nerves by taking a trip over to the medieval town of Barga for some photographs. We spent a short time wandering the quiet streets making our way up towards the Cathedral. We were then greeted with the most amazing view out over the town and surrounding mountains. Afterwards, we drove back up the steep, winding road for the wedding ceremony in the beautiful grounds of I Cedri. An incredible Italian meal followed, as did copious amount of local wine and some dancing into the night.
I was blown away by how welcomed I felt by people I barely knew. My brief trip to Tuscany was one of the highlights of my year and hopefully the first of many more.
