Weddings

Aly and Ryan

Italy

When you bring together two people who love each other this much, plus a destination wedding in the romantically picturesque Tuscan region, combined with some very excited friends and family, it results in a lot of magic! London-based Aly and Ryan are perfectly complemented by the other – Ryan (originally from SA) instills a calmness in Aly and she inspires and motivates him.  He just gazes at her with big-bear love and pride and her face erupts into a grin whenever she sees him. They have a wicked sense of humour, friends are paramount to them…they are driven in their careers and focused on their goals, but also able to laugh at themselves. These two are giving and warm and welcomed us into their home and fast became firm friends. Their generosity glows and Aly surprised me more than a few times with sneaky thoughtful gifts! I don’t have enough space to write all that I want to about our adventures in Florence plus I have an over-whelming wave of nostalgia just reminiscing about it… In a sugary haze of gelato, buzzing streets, authentic pasta and juicy reds, the senses are super-charged and the air is electric. I was able to meet with Aly and Ryan for a frantic few minutes the night before their big day, (in-between cocktails with guests and dinner with the family) at the popular Piazzale Michelangelo. My assistant (husband) had to hold back the mobs of selfie-takers so that we could have a little space along the wall overlooking the famous duomo. I have a feeling that the tourists were wondering what gorgeous celebrities I was shooting! The next day dawned drizzly and dark… the storm clouds threatening ominously during the entire morning. By the time the ceremony commenced at the town hall the sun had taunted us endlessly and then burst through just as these two burst out of the doors a married couple and headed to Villa le Piazzole for their intimate reception :- heartfelt and funny speeches in the amphitheatre followed by a five-course Italian meal surrounding the twinkling turquoise pool, Tuscan hills rolling into the distance dotted with castles. The dance floor came alive, the tunes were rocking and the bodies swaying, all exuberant in celebrating at the most spectacular wedding of a dynamite duo! I couldn’t resist some simultaneous foot-tapping in-sync with my picture-taking! Aly and Ryan I am so grateful and honoured that you chose me to document your incredibly special day – we had such a blast and would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Cheers to many happy years ahead, Henshaws!
