An unspoilt beauty paradise for Umbria wedding photographers
I can’t get over how special this wedding was! I’m sure all the Umbria wedding photographers will be astonished at the views of the remarkable Borgo Bastia Creti, a secluded resort that stands out on the border between Umbria and Tuscany.
The word “borgo” in Italian means a fortified village, typical of medieval times. It consists of a manor house, a square and stables and houses for workers. All these spaces are now turned into a luxury resort that can host more than 30 people; an eclectic paradise, whether you’re planning a rustic and informal or elegant and chic wedding. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to my next wedding there, whenever that will be.
I’m so grateful to Ella and Alex, a magnetic couple with a contagious smile, who chose me to be their Umbria wedding photographer, and to Leonora Forte of Leonora weddings who coordinate and plan the event smoothly, giving us the chance to move around the event and take photographs with ease. When I find a fusion of positive elements that interweave, I can rather focus on what I love about weddings: living in the moment, being a present-but-invisible photographer to create timeless images, and having the opportunity to use my critical, artistic eye to capture the authentic vibes as well the humorous moments – the ones people don’t even notice!
A Borgo Bastia Creti wedding means being in a multifaceted structure with a ton of different corners that ensure romantic movement through the areas without losing the intimacy of the place. Here’s Ella and Alex’s plan for their beautiful wedding day:
- Preparations: Getting ready in The Limonaia and the Manor House. We took some informal and fun getting-ready photos in this area, and we didn’t miss the crew of the sweetest friends on Earth that helped with the hairstyle and makeup – and kept the groom’s nerves at bay!
- Ceremony: The heart-warming ceremony was celebrated by a dear friend of the newlyweds. It was an outdoor symbolic celebration surrounded by the olive forest, and the sound of cicadas made the entrance of guests even more magic. The exit toss was phenomenal – a wide, long tunnel of colored confetti and flowers.
- Speeches and wedding breakfast: The Manor House courtyard was home to the wedding breakfast and emotional speeches. And when everyone was busy, we took a moment for some portrait photos with the happy couple, complete with sunset colors in the background. It was so beautiful, and I bet it’s a common request for all Umbria wedding photographers!
- Dance and be happy: Shoes were optional for the dance floor in the main courtyard of the venue where guests partied until late. There are no neighbors to annoy in this secluded venue!
Being an Umbria wedding photographer means interacting with such a wonderful range of couples, and we love all those we met in our path as everyone holds something special for us.
