Amy & Paul's Story | A Casa Cornacchi Wedding

 
 

This was my second time shooting at Casa Cornacchi in Tuscany and the whole team there took such good care of us. Weddings at Casa Cornacchi have a relaxed, intimate and homely feel and I believe that is what makes it special. Along with the incredible Tuscan views and food of course! The pizza I had was the best I've ever eaten...we could hardly move afterwards.

Amy & Paul really took the time and effort to ensure that the day was not only personal and representative of them as a couple but an experience for their guests. There was a wine tasting, pizza dinner, endless gelato and an intimate and personal ceremony conducted by Paul's sister. It was a joy to capture all the emotion at this wedding; you could see how much everyone meant to each other and that is ultimately the most rewarding element of a wedding to document. The whole event was wonderful; I laughed constantly and felt I was a guest myself. I am so grateful to Amy and Paul for taking such good care of us, including us and inviting us to everything and feeding us the best Italian food! I am so pleased you love your photos!  

This was my first time working alongside Brian of Wilmott Productions. Brian is a very talented videographer and it was a pleasure to work with him. He was so discreet and easygoing! Do check out his work; he shoots all over the world but is based in the USA.

I have shot many destination weddings over the years and continue to do so every year. I am looking forward to two weddings in France coming up soon!

 

Emma & Adam's Story | A Wedding On Lake Como | Villa Regina Teodolinda

 

This was my first time on Lake Como and I couldn't have asked for a lovelier wedding to document. The day took place at Villa Regina Teodolinda right on the Lake. When I think of Emma & Adam's wedding day, I remember how absolutely besotted Adam was with Emma and how perfectly suited they are to each other. The minute you meet them you realise how they just fit so wonderfully together; like two peas in a pod!

There were so many incredible moments during their day. I remember feeling very emotional photographing Adam opening his present from Emma. Emma had a book made detailing all the reasons she loves Adam with some very funny cartoon drawings, it was funny, romantic and tearjerking all in one. Probably the best wedding present I've come across! Adam was overcome with emotion and it was truly wonderful to document. I also have to mention the beautiful moment when Emma's Dad saw her for the first time. Everyone was crying!  It's moments like this that us wedding photographers live for!

Emma and Adam were also treated to a surprise song from Emma's bridesmaid and later, Emma and Adam surprised their guests with an operatic performance from three incredible voices! Everything about the day was personal, romantic and intimate. It really was a fantastic day. All effortlessly planned and styled by Gemma of My Lake Como Wedding. I also had the pleasure of working alongside Alessandro Pardi; he is so discreet and seriously talented! You can see a sneak peek here https://vimeo.com/246067522/description

A big thank you to my kind and ever patient husband for helping me on this one, I love you!

All in all another wedding that leaves me thinking how lucky I am to work with such genuine and kind couples. Thank you Emma & Adam! 

Upon receiving their images I received this message from Emma "Thank you so much Dominique. Honestly, from the bottom of our hearts we are so grateful for these photos and for the love and care you've put into delivering our wedding. We're quite simply blown away. We can't watch them without crying and they have brought back so many memories of the sheer joy we felt on the day. Thank you so much! "
