The Amphitheatre

Tanjila and Anup’s charming destination wedding, Tuscany, Italy. Last year I had the absolute honour of shooting a stunning wedding in Tuscany, Italy at La Selva Giardino del Belvedere, Tuscany. 

I’ve known Tanjila and Anup since meeting them at the wedding of Simon & Taj in Spain, where I was the videographer for their wedding in Marbella. We all flew over a couple of days before the wedding day which was a brilliant opportunity for me to get to know the area and the different locations, and get to know their thoughts on the day.

I already knew that they wanted their wedding videography to be natural, relaxed, and cinematic so this matched my style perfectly!


The wedding took place at La Selva Giardino del Belvedere, Cavriglia, Tuscany…..a beautiful Tuscan villa tucked away in the Chianti Hills, trapped  by olive groves and woods, with a rustic ampitheatre set back from the villa used for an intimate wedding ceremony.

Tanjila & Anup (with the help of Francesco, whose parents built the villa from all-ethical materials) designed all the decor which was a hit with everyone present. Arrival of the guests was dotted throughout the day, everyone was there by the evening, and tucking into a plethora of tasty food!

Makeup and hair dressing took place upstairs in the Villa whilst Anup and his entourage got ready at a separate villa just a stones throw away. Despite the years of planning and anxiety building up to the day, Tanjila & Anup both seemed fairly relaxed (on the outside!) and definitely took everything in their stride on the big day.The speeches were emotional and heartfelt, and dancing under stars at La Selva in the Chianti Hills countryside was just as good as it sounds.

Château Love Story

Whisking away to France for a destination wedding is about as romantic as it gets. Pop the champagne and get lost in the perfectness of this gorgeous Château De Vallery wedding! Seun & Toye chose me as their destination wedding videographer and I was thrilled by their decision.

The love between Seun & Toye comes through in the film and I am thrilled to have captured so many intimate moments between them throughout this special day. Their 300 guests came from all over the world, but predominantly London & Nigeria.

This chateau is stunning and an absolutely perfect location to host a wedding or event. Both the grounds and chateau are in immaculate condition. There are a variety of different spaces which can be used for different parts of the event and no real restrictions on how you use them – the chateau are very accommodating.

Each of the guest bedrooms are beautifully furnished and finished to a very high standard, excellently maintained and all have their own character.

When You Smile …

It was a joy to witness Simon & Taj get married in Spain under the trees and have an unforgettable experience on their special day. Being their wedding videographer in Spain was such a pleasure.

The secret ceremonial garden was tucked away at the far end of the venue and was the perfect setting for this wedding ceremony. After the ceremony guests headed to the lagoon style swimming pool area for drinks & canopies.


The evening dance & party area was located in the main terrace with shelter, and a morrocan style chill out area outdoors to lay out after one too many drinks! Decorated with fairy lights, candles and Moroccan lanterns, this area provided a great backdrop for the evenings entertainment.


El Cortijo de los Caballos is a 14 bed private Villa near Marbella, available for weddings and other special occasions. The venue is managed by the brilliant Rachel Rose Weddings. This stunning villa is one of the last true Cortijos left in the surrounding area, it has easy access from a close by main road and is close to Estepona, Marbella, Benhavis and other quaint Spanish villages, and of course the beautiful beaches of the Costa Del Sol.


The eclectic mix of Spanish and Moroccan décor sleeps 28 guests plus extra beds, but there are plenty of options in the surrounding areas for larger wedding parties.

It was a pleasure to work alongside Kino Ortega on the day, who is an amazing photographer based in Malaga. Kino also has a great blog about the day and the venue which you can read here.
