40TH AT CASTELLO DI CASOLE
I am happy to be home after shooting the most fabulous and awesome 4 day event in Tuscany at Castello di Casole and I am SO excited about seeing my boys who get back from their travels later on today.
Castello di Casole is the most beautiful and exquisite 5 star hotel and has been voted No.1 Resort in Europe. Castello di Casole combines old world Tuscan charm with modern luxury, elegance and sophistication and is the most gorgeous and perfect venue to celebrate a wedding or a special occasion with family and friends.
The party started with a massive roar as my client, his family and some of the guests arrived in a convoy of four ferraris and a maserati from Sainte Maxime in the South of France! What a spectacular, glamourous and thrilling entrance this made.
The event was spread over 4 glorious days with delicious and sumptuous lunches and dinners either in the courtyard, on the terrace or by the pool. Cycling and cooking activities were arrange during the day or guests could lounge at the leisure by pool or stroll in the most stunning Tuscan scenery. In the evenings there was dancing in the chapel or pool side Karaoke. All a fabulous recipe for a magical, wonderful and happy party and weekend which was organised and planned by my beautiful and stylish friend Sarah Mason. Sarah owns and runs Mason Rose Private, an elite bespoke travel service for 5-star properties and hotels worldwide.
Today I have been thinking why I am good at what I do. Firstly totally I LOVE IT. I am passionate about capturing the best photographs of an event to create beautiful, memorable, everlasting memories which can be cherished and enjoyed for generations. Photographing events whether it be a wedding, a birthday party or another special occasion ticks many of my boxes. I am an artist with a good, creative eye and an understanding of light; I am a party girl at heart who loves to meet new people; my friends have always said I am very diplomatic and have an ability to get on well with people; my clients tell me I make them feel comfortable, relaxed and good about themselves; I am there but not there, sometimes I am unobtrusive but when its appropriate I join in, I mingle and I may even get onto the dance floor with my cameras.
My weekend highlight though was when my client turned around to me and said I was AMAZING and one of the guests that she has just found her wedding photographer and that she absolutely MUST book me!
