I recently photographed a destination wedding at this beautiful venue in Southern Italy. It was an honour to spend three love-filled days at this timeless Masseria Potenti wedding in Puglia with some of the finest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing.
I’m so pleased to introduce Emily & Peter, my gorgeous couple that fell in love with the Italian way of life and the rustic beauty of Puglia. Despite Covid trying to thwart their perfect wedding dream, once the world started to get back to normal they decided the autumn of 2021 was time. They gathered family, friends, and me, for their wedding at Masseria Potenti. I couldn’t be more happy to be their wedding photographer; Puglia is a wonderful part of Italy and Masseria Potenti is the perfect backdrop for a destination wedding.
Masseria Potenti is a sixteenth-century Italian farm, nestled in the countryside of Manduria. All around the venue are olive groves, vineyards, and the peaceful Mediterranean thicket. The fabulous owners of the Masseria have sympathetically renovated and enhanced the ancient architecture to create a hidden gem. White-washed architecture, mixed with blue tones and the green of prickly pear plants create a peaceful, almost meditative state of mind. It’s almost otherworldly in its beauty.
Emily & Peter’s wedding was so joyful, relaxed, and real. It reminded me that thoughtful details combined with simplicity and spontaneity are the secret to a truly authentic & memorable wedding day. That, and a pretty messy party!
Emily left me such a fabulous review, I have to share a little: “Even having seen his work, we were not prepared for just how well he captured the weekend’s events. His use of light and ability to capture the tiniest moment & emotion between people is incredible. I’m probably biased but I think what he’s produced are the best wedding photos I’ve ever seen!”
Thank you so much! ❤️
If you’re planning your own destination wedding in Italy, I’d love to be there for you too. Please get in touch.
