As a destination wedding photographer I often fantasise of far away weddings in the most unique places. And sometimes, if I’m completely honest, I forget that Italy has some incredibly romantic and breathtaking locations too - when you live in Italy you can easily take it for granted, I guess. But when I look at the pictures of my couples’ weddings in places like Tuscany, Como Lake, Sicily, or the Amalfi coast, it’s no wonder that so many couples choose Italy for their international weddings. 

And so, on a sunny day at the end of July, without travelling too far from my home, I was given the opportunity to photograph the love of an incredible couple in one of those places that have the power of leaving you speechless: Villa Catureglio, in the heart of Tuscany.

This beautiful couple, Nicolas & Nikola, is all sorts of amazing. Nicolas was born and raised in Paris, while Nikola was born in Singapore and grew up in California. They met in college in 2008 through mutual friends who felt they could be a match, not only because they have the same name pronunciation, but also because they felt they’d very similar personalities too. Fast forward a few years and Nicolas one day asked permission to marry Nikola, not only from her immediate family, but also from her mum’s two sisters who are like second mums to her - something that Nikola appreciated deeply.

My gratitude toward this couple for the opportunity they have given me to document such an incredible time in their life is immense. Thank you SO much Nikola and Nicolas.
