Last month I celebrated my 10 year wedding anniversary. When you get married, you know...
Today’s wedding is real beauty. Set in stunning Tuscany, it takes in the amazing scenery and is full of natural beauty and the most gorgeous couple. Melissa and Thomas love Italy, so wanted to reflect this in their choice of venue. They chose Villa Ostignano for it’s Tuscan charm and gorgeous gardens, and what a location for a wedding, totally tranquil and beautifully breathtaking! With lots of greenery and white flowers to set off the location, the tables look exquisite, as do Melissa and Thomas, so in love and full of smiles. Dallk Photography were there to to capture the day, and they did an amazing job.
Melissa and Thomas were married on 22nd July 2018 at Villa Ostignano, Montaione, Tuscany – Italy. Thomas says, ‘both of us love Italy, and i’m from south Italy, Calabria. We had 60 guests and it took a year to plan the wedding.’
