Marcelle & Jo’s Elegant Tuscany Wedding
Today we feature a beautiful bride and her wedding day captured by Divine Day Photography who got married last year in Tuscany.
Marcelle and Jo are sassy creatures, witty and clever. Her touches which she complained later “weren’t quite right” were exacting and blended perfectly with the landscape. It all felt effortless! They met about 500 years ago and finally managed to agree on the Borgo. It spoiled us all.
Here’s a wedding I loved! It was shot last year in Tuscany. Her dress was by TOM FORD and she wore a killer pair of heels by Luboutin. The light was incredible and I couldn’t get enough of this joint! Non-stop snapping it all up. They chose the over the top BORGO SANTO PIETRO in Tuscany & served up grilled octopus as a starter. The first dance was a gorgeous cover of Chaka Khan’s Ain’t nobody by Jasmine Thompson. It was the start of the rather insane party that ensued! See the montage here.
I’m a Canadian living in London and a bit mad…hopefully in a good way! My career in photography sprang out of a career in fashion. There are some really amazing photographers out there so standing out is tricky! I’m constantly blown away by the work of other talent out there both wedding photography is so much more than it was once. My clients tend to be rather artistic themselves or come from a design background. They want their wedding to be covered in a way that explores so much more than the props, the portraits and the moments! I try to add in shots of the journey to the venue and set up the story for the day too, giving the viewer a sense of the day over all…I’m sure I’ve put you to sleep by now:)
How would you describe your photography style?
I’m evolving with every wedding, but strictly speaking I’m a good old blend of reportage and editorial.
What did you love about the day?
I’m not sure I can fault a day that starts in the pool and slowly winds up in an olive orchard watching the long over due nuptials moving then to the tables a la perfection where each of the 4 tables competed in celebratory chants that ended up with the entire table number 3 on the balcony roaring out “We are the champions”! Fantastic insanity! Once dinner wrapped we made the trek past the pool to the starlit dance floor when it became clear that it was actually possible to improve on the day…last man off the dance floor was 5am apparently.
