Katie and Rob’s destination wedding in Tuscany tucked another destination right into the celebrations. Traditions from the Pacific permeated the day in the most beautiful way and Stefano Santucci was there to capture all the mixed-culture magic!
From Stefano Santucci – Katie and Rob’s wedding in Villa Catignano, a few kilometres far from the medieval city of Siena, had one of the characteristics we love the most in our work: they melted together different cultures!
This lovely couple from London, UK, planned a perfect wedding destination in Tuscany, incorporating the best spirit from the South Pacific Islands, where the bride’s family came from. It was simply lovely to captured them tying the knot in an outstanding Italian Renaissance church, the Saint Peter Chartreuse in Pontignano, surrounded by the groomsmen wearing a sulu, a typical clothing style from Fiji.
After a delicious gelato in the courtyard of the church, the celebrations continued in the villa with Polynesian dances performed by the bridesmaids and the closest friends of the couple, everything embellished by the gorgeous flower leis.”
