Danielle & Tom ~ A sneaky peak...

A sneaky peak of Danielle & Tom' s beautiful, intimate Chelsea wedding.

{there are more sneaky peeks and blog posts to follow shortly, but my lovely dear blogger is playing up; randomly removing images and making some slightly fuzzy! {never a good thing when they are so clean & crisp in 'real life'!}...hopefully one of these days I will find a few minutes to launch my brand spanking new blog & website and all of the aforementioned problems will disappear...exciting times!!}

Under the Tuscan Sun

My love affair with Italy began in the summer of 2004 when Andy and I donned our backpacks and set off on a fun-filled, 3 month adventure that started in Venice and ended in Positano. And it still continues today. So I was super excited when my parents asked us if we wanted to join them {along with my sister & her husband} for a week in Tuscany a few weeks ago.

There are so many reasons to love Italy; the gorgeous-sounding language, stunning architecture,  amazing landscapes, passionate and interesting locals and delicious wines to name but a few, but for those of you that know me, its only ever really about one thing and that's the food! In Italy it is so simple, so fresh and cooked with a passion that is almost tangible, and I just couldn't get enough of it! 

We had a fantastic holiday taking in the stunning sights of San Gimignano, Florence and Siena and as always my camera never left my side! Here are a few of my holiday snaps of all things Italiano...{apart from me and my family!}

San Gimignano {& surrounding area}

Siena {&surrounding area}

Our accommodation near Siena was stunning; the grounds were filled with yummy fruit trees {I became rather addicted to fresh figs!} and a beautiful well.

A fabulous photo shoot ~ sneak peek

So sorry it's been a little quiet around here, my life is only just returning to 'normal' after our wedding which is why the blog has been neglected rather a lot of late! There are a good few weddings to be blogged over the coming weeks which I can't wait to share with you and some images from a fabulous photo shoot yesterday organised by the wonderful Jonny Draper at two stunning venues; Twelve Restaurant and The Great Hall at Mains.

Here's just a teeny sneak peek SOOC {Straight Out Of Camera} from the shoot yesterday of Olivia and Emily {two of the three lovely models} with the rest to follow shortly...
