Niklas & Ivana’s swedish destination wedding in Tuscany at Villa Buonvisi

Niklas and Ivana during their swedish destination wedding in Tuscany at Villa Buonvisi near Lucca

Niklas and Ivana chose the beautiful Villa Buonvisi near Lucca for their romantic swedish destination wedding in Tuscany, bringing together their families and friends from different parts of the world. Although both are Swedish, Niklas has Italian origins while Ivana has Balkan roots.

As a destination wedding photographer, I have had the pleasure of shooting several weddings at this stunning venue, but this was the first time it rained. However, the weather did not dampen the spirit of Niklas and Ivana's special day, which was filled with joy and emotion. To be honest, the rain added even more charm to this romantic and intimate Villa nestled in the typical Tuscan countryside, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. Every time I work there, I discover something new, such as a detail, a glimpse or a furnishing item.

The ceremony was initially planned to be outdoors but was moved indoors to the first floor. As for the couple's photos, Niklas and Ivana opted for a first look. It was a very moving moment to see their surprise when they saw each other beautifully dressed before the ceremony. We also took advantage of the opportunity to take some indoor wedding photo shots before exchanging the vows, as we knew that the weather wouldn’t have improved much afterwards. The historical charm of the different spaces and rooms inside the Villa made the perfect setting for the most intimate shots.

After the aperitivo, the celebrations continued outside under a tent set up with tables. The dinner was filled with speeches from families and friends, adding a lot of fun and emotion to the moment.

In conclusion, Niklas and Ivana's wedding in Tuscany at Villa Buonvisi was truly unforgettable despite the rain. The combination of the stunning venue, the couple's love, and the presence of their loved ones made the day truly special.

I feel grateful to have been a part of such a beautiful celebration and to have captured these cherished moments for Niklas and Ivana to look back on for years to come.
