The No1 Tuscany Wedding Photographer In The UK

Award-winning Tuscany wedding photographer based in the UK. Wes Simpson is an English destination wedding photographer who travels out to Tuscany for your wedding.

Finding the perfect Tuscany wedding photographer to capture your celebration is one of the most important parts of planning a wedding in Tuscany. After all, once the wedding is over, the pictures are all you have left.

Hiring a photographer you trust and whose style of photography you love is even more important when having a destination wedding than getting married at home…

Family and friends invest in a holiday to see you tie the knot and everyone back home will want to share the excitement of your wedding through your pictures.

Understandably, a lot of couples from the UK worry about their wedding photography when planning a destination in Tuscany. Awkward poses, the language barrier and the risk of being ripped off are just some of the most common concerns.

For over 15 years, I have been travelling to Italy to photograph weddings. During this time, I have developed a system for delivering meaningful pictures. The system is simple, effective and won’t interfere with your day.

Plus, you get to deal with me directly, before, during and after the wedding. So you can trust your wedding pictures are in safe hands.

Why I love being a Tuscany wedding photographer

As a leading award-winning Tuscany wedding photographer based in the UK, if you choose to work with me, you can trust that your wedding pictures are in safe hands.

I have been lucky enough to have photographed many weddings in this part of the world since my first ever destination wedding in Italy back in 2009. It was a beautiful Italian wedding that took place in Positano on the Amalfi Coast.

Since then, I have had the pleasure of working with many couples from the UK and overseas that choose to elope and get married in Italy.

Tuscany is one of my favourite parts of the country to photograph weddings. So, if you’re planning a wedding in Tuscany be delighted to talk to you.

As an award-winning Tuscany wedding photographer from the UK, I love capturing the rolling hills, magical sunsets, vineyards and olive gardens, all of which make for truly breathtaking and authentic Tuscany wedding photography images.

Tuscany is now one of the most popular wedding destinations in Europe for couples from the UK, the USA and Australia and it’s easy to see why.

Being a Tuscany wedding photographer from the UK and photographing weddings in Italy is a photographic dream! I love the culture, architecture and pace of life.

I’m based in the North West of England, so the sort 2/3 hour flight time from Manchester and Liverpool John Lennon airport is an added bonus when taking on destination wedding assignments.

One of the things I love most about photographing weddings in Tuscany is that the region offers so many visual and photographic opportunities. Choosing to get married here, you are spoilt for choice.

As a Tuscany wedding photographer based in the UK, I love the contrast of colours between the rolling hills of Chianti and the vibrant textures found in the iconic cities and towns of Florence and Siena.

The vast landscapes mixed with pastel-coloured towns, make this part of Italy such a romantic place to get married and a photographic dream!

One of the things I love most about being a Tuscany wedding photographer is the evening light. The sunsets in Tuscany are incredible and a must-have for your wedding photos. The food and wine here aren’t too bad either…

Firstly, you will want to be able to easily communicate with your Tuscany wedding photographer before, during and after your wedding. You will want to be able to translate your vision, style and communicate how you would like the day documenting.

How much does a wedding photographer in Italy cost?

When planning a wedding in Tuscany, one of the first questions you might be asking is, “How much does a wedding photographer in Italy cost?” or “How much can I expect to pay for a wedding photographer in Tuscany?”

As a very rough guide, you can expect to pay between 1800 – 4500 euros for a standard wedding photographer in Italy. However, like with most things, this will change depending on the style of the wedding photographer you’re working with.

You can expect the wedding photographers experience together with your own unique set of requirements to change the price of the wedding photography quote. The first thing to remember is that not all wedding photographers are the same.

Pre and Post Wedding Photo-shoots In Florence, Sienna and Pisa

As a travelling Tuscany wedding photographer, I love nothing more than getting creative with my couples. Often, destination weddings are a weeklong celebration with couples hiring me to photograph pre-wedding welcoming parties and BBQs.

After the wedding why not book a post-wedding photoshoot on location? This is the perfect excuse to put on your wedding dress again and get creative. Visiting nearby towns and cities such as Florence, Pisa and Sienna will add an extra layer to your Tuscany wedding photography experience.

One of the best reasons to book a post-wedding photoshoot is the opportunity to create real works of art. I photograph the wedding with a documentary approach, capturing the event and the stories as they happen. This allows you to get on with the day without interruption or distraction.

With a post-wedding location shoot, you have the time to create portraits of just the both of you without it eating into your actual wedding day. You can visit famous picture-postcard locations and have them be a part of your wedding album.
