Being destination wedding photographers is always exciting and this was certainly the case when we were Masseria Grieco wedding photographers for Francesca and Pete’s beautiful Italian wedding.
The Apulian territory in Italy is increasingly thought to be one of the most beautiful areas in Europe to get married in. Found in the years between the 16th and 18th century Masseria Grieco is rich in both architecture and archaeological heritage.
Amongst the large mostly agricultural buildings made of local stone is a large stone square and a pretty church. The arches, terraces and the gardens combined with modern luxuries like the infinity pool and the spectacular views across the Apulian countryside make Masseria Grieco a simply stunning and luxurious wedding venue.
Francesca looked amazing in her dress with a full-length veil with her long hair gently tousled. She looked the perfect balance of elegance, style and comfort. Francesca really suited being a bride. The bridesmaid’s dresses had a lovely Grecian style that worked so perfectly with the venue.
The ceremony was held in Masseria Grieco’s beautiful garden and Francesca and her father made a fantastic entrance by coming down the steps of the main building. Having got married in London before leaving the ceremony was a symbolic one and was conducted by Pete’s godmother is who is a celebrant. This made it all the more personal.
The main reception was held in the square with tables dressed exquisitely and adorned with pretty fairy lights looked magical. Like an Italian take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Here, take a look!
We adored the colours Francesca and Pete went for. Soft blues and greens to match the olive trees and stone colour chino’s for the men to work with the soft stone of the buildings. A traditionally English ‘buttoned up’ look would have looked so out of place at Masseria Grecio. Francesca and Pete very cleverly got the details exactly right.
As the sunset the party started and what a party it was. There was some serious shapes being cut under a canopy of stars. Amazing!
We love being destination wedding photographers and we loved being Francesca and Pete’s Masseria Grieco wedding photographers. Thanks, guys for having us there. Here’s what Francesca and Pete had to say about working with us.
‘They are just AMAZING!!!. It was amazing having 100% confidence in that aspect of the planning. You could tell on the day they knew exactly what they were doing, they chatted to guests and got involved, our guests loved them. We loved getting a few sneak peek photos the next day, that was like a wedding gift in itself. Worth every penny!!’
