Chellie, Would you not consider looking for an Irish photographer who might be interested in a break in Italy at the time. He could subsidise his holiday cost and you would not have the language problem - assuming you don't speak Italian. Mind you, you would lose the advantage of local knowledge. Whereabouts in Italy are you getting married? Zoe

We used a guy called Julian - his website is www.italianweddingphotographer.com. We got our album last week and it was amazing. He also sent us a CD with all of our wedding photos on it and we can print them off at our leisure for the relatives. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Hi Spooner Thanks for that tip. I looked at the website and the work looks really noce. I have emailed him and I await a reply. Can I ask - what package did you get and can u give me a rough cost. Iam using a wedding planner in Tuscany but the people she suggested seem to be very expensive! Maybe I was a bit naive about the price of photographers!!!! Cheers Michelle

I recently got married in Italy (23rd Sept) and I booked a photographer without ever having met him. We were blessed as we found the most amazing guy. His name is Maurizio and he does a complet report of your day. I'm not keen on posed photographs (although you need some for family shots etc.) and his style caters for his. He catches the moods and the moments of the whole day. He then sent us a CD with all our photographs (over 400) and also the most amazing slideshow with his favourites. The slideshow is done to music and is more like a video but with out the sound of people chatting in te background. I'm probably bias but I think its great. His website is www.mauriziotoni.com and our photo's are there under 'Irish Wedding' Wish I could do it all again!

I agree, Orlad does seem to be advertising. But have you looked at his web-site - I hate to say it but the pictures are gorgeous. Zoe

I promise you this isn't an advert. I know I've never got involved in a discussion before on this site so can understand why you'd think so. I just remember how hard it was to find a photographer in Italy and when I tried to find help I couldn't. The hotel had recommended someone but I thought his photos looked very stiff and not what I wanted. I have nothing to gain, just wanted to offer a helping hand. Anyway if you like what you see on the website go for it, if you don't then don't the choice is yours. Best of luck to you all anyway and I hope you day lives up to your dreams, mine did. :wv
