Elopement in Tuscany – Villa Fontelunga

Elopement in Tuscany – What a beautiful romantic thing to do! I shoot a few elopements each year and they are so much fun as I always have a very close rapport with the couple from the start. In this case I even organized the hair/make-up and the ceremony too! I really wanted to capture the Tuscany in this shoot and so I took the couple to some nice locations that I feel are quite representative of Tuscany.

    Hi Jules,

    I am the father of the bride and perhaps a little biased….but when we received your photos of Nicolle and Antonio….we were speechless. Great angles, light and settings. Truly amazing!

    Thank you for capturing this moment and the spirits of these two very special people and giving us an opportunity to have those memories for an eternity.

    As a fellow photographer (www.akintayotimi.com) from a completely different part of the continent, i stumbled across this post as i plan to visit Italy early part of next year and i must stay, i am very well pleased with the simplicity of this union.

    Beautiful couple (always helps), amazing scenery and composition, feels so intimate, where i am, we pride in hundreds of people attending a wedding, makes it more like a party than a subtle union.

    I plan to spend a day in Tuscany during my visit there, aswell as Rome ofcourse and Venice, hopefully i shall document this breath-taking landscape God has provided ya’ll with…..

    Very well documented Mr Jules sir…

    How wonderful to relive this elgant and intimate elopement ceremony again. Nicolle and Antonio were generous in sharing their very special story with me as their Celebrant.

    These professional photographs are full of light, love and joy. No wonder many more couples are now choosing to elope to get married and to relax in the most romantic corner of the world… but as an Italian of course I am biased!
