Count Ceconi Castle love story

This was a true love story! A few years back I travelled to Italy to take part in a wedding photography training. I am a wedding photographer based in Hereford, UK and I just love documenting our couples’ love stories. And I was so lucky to be able to also photograph this Italian Count Ceconi Castle love story.

About wedding photographers

As wedding photographers we invest in trainings because we always want to improve our skills. This Italian wedding photography training was such a great choice! I got to practice shooting in direct Italian light during hot days. For a wedding photographer located in the UK this experience was so unique.

Proposals don’t get photographed

I never would have dreamed about this moment – photographing the moment of proposal. And our models, a real couple – Kate and Lee are a wonderful couple so it was almost surreal to be able to photograph that moment for them. After the second day of our styled shoot, the groom got on his knee and proposed! We all cried. This Count Ceconi Castle love story was real!

Getting married abroad

Have you ever considered getting married abroad – maybe even in Venice, Italy? Everything is possible – have a look at the details, get inspired, think about the best day of your life – it will be so special. Kate was wearing a Claire Pettibone wedding dress by the White Closet – so simple and therefore elegant. Pastel colours, incredible surroundings, just take a look at these two…

Wedding dress choice

The wedding dress worn by our bride is so beautiful. It is perfect for summer weddings because it is light and comfortable. Wearing a big dress in forty degrees is probably not the best idea and a recipe for a disaster. If you are planning a wedding in Italy think twice about your bridal gown. This wedding dress was a perfect choice.

Claire from the English Wedding Blog also added some really lovely words about Marta May Photography: “Based in Hereford, Marta and Artur’s style is wonderfully non-traditional, creative and exciting. I love the delicate romance in Marta May’s images.”
