Rachel & Travis: Casa Cornacchi Wedding
Casa Cornacchi Wedding Photographer
Rachel & Travis
Like most photographers, I love a destination wedding. Let’s face it - it’s flattering just to be asked - and it means seeing a corner of the world that you might otherwise not experience. And what a trip this was! Rachel and Travis got married in a minimalist, stylish ceremony in the beautiful Casa Cornacchi in *the Monte Beniche* Italy. It was a three-day extravaganza - some awesome pizza the night before the wedding, then a sunny outdoor wedding with a party long into the night, followed by a lunch the next day. Absolutely beautiful. I’ve not been to too many Italian wedding venues, but this place was stunning, and had everything - epic scenery nearby, a pool on site, excellent accommodation.
Where to start? The wedding itself was a simple, relaxed, intimate wedding. The day started with a dip in the pool in the blazing Italian heat (not for me!), before an emotional outdoor ceremony. The speeches took place as the guests dined al fresco, by candlelight. There was beautiful scenery for the couple shoot, including sunflower fields - and we were treated to some dramatic lighting. At night, there was a tremendous party atmosphere. There was even a gelato stand - an awesome idea for all summer weddings (can’t encourage this enough)!
For wedding destinations abroad, Italy is such a great shout. Such a romantic and unique landscape. Until next time…
