Destination wedding in San Galgano

Everyone has his own dream and goals, one of my main one was shooting a wedding in San Galgano abbey and…. it happened 3 times in a row this season. Can you imagine how happy I was ?


Jamie and Shin are a cool and sweet couple from the US that choose me to be their wedding photographer on their special day in Tuscany, I really need to thank them since this was one of the coolest wedding I’ve ever shot !


the wedding started with the getting at Villa Podernovo with a very informal mood and with a relaxed vibe, then, while Jamie was putting her beautiful wedding dress on, all the people headed to my favourite place, San Galgano Abbey.


just some quick info about the abbey: it was built in late XIII century near Siena, it hosted a community up to 3 centuries later then it started to decay until (at the end of XVI century) the roof fell down after the lead cover was sold. It was “rediscovered” in 1896 from the famous italian photographers Fratelli Alinari from Florence. At the beginning of last century it was restored as you can see it now, a place I strongly suggest to visit since it’s so majestic !


The ceremony was very emotional and anyone could witness the love between Jamie and Shin, it was a very touching moment.

after a quick photoshoot we headed back to the villa for the dinner and the most funny dancing party I’ve ever shot, Jamie proved to be a great dancer and we all felt like being in a Bruno Mars music video !


It was a great wedding, perfectly planned by Simona from Super Tuscan Wedding planner, and I think we came back home with some nice pictures that you can see below
