“The thing that drew us to Charli is the fact that she manages to capture the complete story of a wedding.”
Katie and Christie, where do I even start! Quite simply. their Italy wedding was full to the brim with prettiness.
I first met Katie and Christie when Katie was a bridesmaid at Laura and Andy’s wedding. This time around, Laura was the bridesmaid, and it was so lovely to see her and Andy again.
Katie and Christie’s wedding was picture perfect. It started at Tenuta Di Canonica for the bridal preparations. Tenuta di Canonica is an ancient watch tower located on top of a hill just outside of Todi, in the heart of Umbria. I arrived the day before the wedding and visited both the ceremony and reception locations. I had an absolute ball working alongside Boe from Botias again – she was also the MUA at Laura and Andy’s wedding and I would thoroughly recommend her – she goes above and beyond!
The ceremony took place in Monte Castello di Vibio and Katie and her Dad rocked up in style in a Fiat 500. This small medieval village is so, so beautiful. The church itself was call Santi Filippo e Giacomo which is located in a little square in the village overlooking the Umbrian countryside.
Post-ceremony, everyone gathered in the sunlit square for drinks before heading back to Tenuta di Canonica. We had great fun taking some lovely photos in the village before I hung out of my car window to capture some shots of them in their Fiat 500 in front (I am now very experienced in hanging out of car windows!!)… obviously I was not driving whilst doing this!
The reception vibe was chilled and fun with a guitar duo, the Umbrian sun, great food and wine, a sweet table and a talking parrot.
During the reception meal we snuck out a few times to capture some photos as the sun set before the evening party got in full swing under the stars (with lots of limoncello!!).
It was such a pleasure to capture Katie and Christie’s day and to meet all of their lovely family and friends.
