PUGLIA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Whilst we are a London based wedding studio we are fortunate enough to capture around many destination weddings a year if there is one place we love to return its Puglia - We are always thrilled to call ourselves a Puglia wedding photographer. This Southern region of Italy that forms the heel of Italy’s boot is one of the prettiest regions in Italy and offers an authentic experience to all of its visitors.
Here are my top 5 reasons why you should choose a Puglia wedding.
PACE IS A LITTLE SLOWER IN ÅPUGLIA - PERFECT FOR A RELAXED WEDDING
You should choose to have a Puglia wedding because…
It has something for everyone so you can choose exactly the kind of wedding you want. You can take your vows barefoot on the beach, on an ancient 15th-century hilltop farm overlooking miles of olive groves, in the 17th century baroque in the ancient town of Lecce or at an upmarket 5-star beachside resort in the vibrant city of Bari. Whatever the size, style or budget of your wedding. Puglia will be able to accommodate it.
When I’m a Puglia wedding photographer, I love to see what direction my couples have taken for their Puglia wedding.
THE FOOD IS EXQUISITE - PUGLIA IS THE CAPITAL FOR FISH
You should choose to have a wedding in Puglia because …
Of the food. You might think well that’s true of all weddings in Italy but Puglia has its own distinct cuisine, with recipes passed down through the generations. For a start, there’s the local world-famous Primitivo wine. Add to that endless fruit and olive orchards, local vegetable, meat and dairy farms and all the coastline you could want for fresh seafood and fish. Your wedding breakfast will be entirely sourced locally with fresh seasonal ingredients and cooked to recipes that are distinctive to the Puglia region. Your guests will be talking about the food they enjoyed at your Puglia wedding for the rest of their lives!
When I shoot wedding photography in Puglia, I always love seeing the guests tucking into the authentic Italian cuisine.
BUILDINGS WITH STYLE AND CLASS
You should choose to have a Puglia wedding because …
Of the amazing contrast of architecture of the region. Puglia’s rich history has left it with a mish-mash of architectural styles. There are medieval fortified, Roman and even pre-Roman towns. There are Baroque palaces and 15th-century farms. There are trulli huts (the ones with the distinctive coned roofs!) and pretty whitewashed hill towns with cobbled winding streets. The seaside town of Trani has its own cathedral and castle and the seaside town of Gallipolli has original underground Olive Mills. Modern architecture sits right along ancient particularly in the coastal city of Bari. With all of this on offer, you can find the perfect wedding venue to suit your vision of your perfect Italian wedding.
One of the best things about being a Puglia wedding photographer is getting to take images with impressive Puglia architecture as a backdrop.
THE WEATHER - THE SUN IS WARMER IN ÅPUGLIA
You should choose to have a wedding in Puglia because ...
Of the sunshine. As Puglia is situated in the very south of Italy it has a fantastic climate with temperatures in the 20’s from April to August. So, if you want to avoid the hottest months of July and August you can still enjoy fantastic weather for a late Spring or early Autumn wedding. And as you are never far from the coast there’s always a light warm breeze to stop you from feeling too hot.
When I shoot wedding photography in Puglia, I love that the climate means the wedding doesn’t need to take itself indoors as soon as the sun starts to set.
THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN ITALY
You should choose to have a Puglia wedding because …
It’s not too busy. The Italians have done their best to keep Puglia a secret as they like to holiday there themselves (a bit like us and Cornwall). This has contributed to the area remaining so unspoilt and authentic. Though the very fact that I am writing about it is evidence that it’s gaining in popularity so hurry and be the first amongst everybody you know to have a wedding in Puglia.
Another thing I love about being a Puglia wedding photographer is wowing people with images that show just how beautiful this region of Italy is.
I hope this blog has been helpful. Enjoy finding your perfect Puglia wedding venue (how could you not!) When you’ve found it, you’ll be looking for a Puglia wedding photographer. Give us a shout. We would love to hear about your wedding plans.
LETS TALK - REAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN ITALY
Puglia in the south of Italy is increasingly thought to be one of the most beautiful areas in Europe to get married in. Masseria Grieco certinaly ticks a lot of boxes for a great wedding. The arches, terraces and the gardens combined with modern luxuries like the infinity pool and the spectacular views across the Apulian countryside made Fran and Pete book this place the within a heart beat.
If there is something we love about Italian wedding venues is when they are self contained meaning there is no reason to leave the venue. Surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, the Vinilia Wine Resort is exactly that - this venue has everything including a Wine one of the oldest Wine Cellars in the country. Victoria and Jeremy booked this place on their first visit and being been at their wedding, its clear why!
"...Worth every penny. Our guests loved them, they fitted in so well on the day but did not interrupt the flow of the wedding of direct attention elsewhere. Clearly extremely talented and so passionate about what they do. ...."
"...I don’t know where to start... The photos and film were more than we could have ever imagined. I don’t think one of the guests didn’t comment on how friendly, professional and talented they were..."
"...Fuck. It’s so good. It’s so fucking good. Not in my wildest dreams could I have ever imagined something so amazing. The films, the photos, everything. It’s insane. You two are absolute legends..."
