This Villa Scorzi wedding shoot showcases an incredible venue in northern Tuscany. The villa lies not far from the convenience of Pisa airport and a little further away Florence. The property consists of 14th-century and 17th-century buildings. The entire estate is kept to a very high standard and years of restoration mean that nowadays it offers a very high level of accommodation and service to its discerning clients.
Villa Scorzi lies inside large stone walls and an ample garden surrounds the wonderfully historical venue. The noble and elegant interiors of the manor house are perfect for creating wedding photos with an essence of sophistication and class.
To start, I take a few images of the villa and its gardens to capture the original atmosphere of this enchanting place. The gardens are rich with statues and ornaments that are in keeping with the area and property style. Following on, I concentrate on photographing a few details. The wedding colors are black/white and gold and these will be present throughout the day.
Next, the groom prepares downstairs and I photograph the little adjustments and finishing touches as he perfects his appearance. Finally, I go upstairs to find the bride ready. She slips into her first wedding dress and I set about taking some portraits of her.
The property has its own private church, but today we are showcasing a ceremony in the Italian gardens in front of the main villa under the clock tower. A floral arch denotes the altar and stands in front of the water fountain. This particular spot is ideal for small to medium size wedding ceremonies that seek an intimate Italian garden wedding. During the ceremony, soft rays of light filter through the trees and create an easy location for wedding photography.
For dinner, the bride changes into a clean-cut, contemporary pant-suit dress that despite it super original look blends seamlessly with the contemporary table design and mise-en-place. The Villa Scorzi wedding dinner is set up under the loggia which affords guests with shelter from the elements but also creates an impressive focal point for a romantic dinner. The driveway leads the eye to the dinner table and its beautiful decor. This is a small dinner setup for a few guests however the property can also easily accommodate large wedding parties both indoors and outside.
In conclusion, after cutting their scrumptious looking black/white and gold wedding cake the bride changes into her third dress, a voluminous gown that is a great choice for a romantic first dance waltz! This was a lot of fun to photograph and so was this dramatic woodland wedding.
