romantic elopement in florence

Most elopement features here on Burnett’s Boards could really be classified better as very intimate weddings with a few family members and friends. Julie & Gregory’s, however, photographed by Funkybird Photography IS truly an elopement. These two love birds jetted off to Florence to tie the knot and it’s absolutely adorable!

From FunkyBird Photography – “I’ve covered intimate weddings before, very intimate with perhaps just the spouses and their children or their parents. But never a true romantic elopement like this one. Julie contacted the girls from Trouwen in Toscane to ask if they could help her with the Italian bureaucracy and they ended up being the official witnesses in the council. I was very happy to be their wedding photographer in Tuscany that day. It is amazing to see how two people just decide to run off and have a romantic wedding weekend in Florence!

They stayed in the beautiful Hotel Brunelleschi right in the center of Florence where Gregory improvised as the hairdresser and actually did a pretty decent job braiding Julie’s hair. (He did say he had practiced back home in Belgium)

We took some shots in the hotel and walked towards the Palazzo Vecchio, stopping every two steps to take photo’s in the beautiful streets of Florence. After the ceremony we had several hours to do a love shoot and I have to say, looking back now on the photos, I remind myself again and again how colorful Florence really is! The blue sky, the many colors on Ponte Vecchio, the green of the grass and the roses in the Rose Garden; every shot looked like a postcard from Italy. I wish Julie and Gregory all the best and hope they will come back to enjoy Florence soon!”

  6. Kevin and I were discussing doing this before we opted for our big wedding. Although I loved our wedding, part of me wishes we did the intimate Italian thing. Maybe for our 10 year vow renewal! This wedding is absolutely adorable!
