Wedding: Lee & Kat at the "Borgo di Colleoni resort", Italy

Late August saw us venture to sunny Tuscany, Italy and the picturesque Borgo di Colleoni resort for the wedding of Lee & Kat. Most of the guests had checked-in by Friday lunchtime and took the opportunity to relax by the pool, in the baking Italian heat. Pizza & pasta were served later that evening in the main courtyard and, while the beer and wine flowed, strangers became friends and familiar faces became reacquainted; everyone looking forward to the big day ahead.

The morning started, for most, as the previous night had ended - by the pool, which provided a welcome tonic for the hangovers and heat of the wedding day. The morning passed by quickly as

Lee & Kat readied themselves for the wedding ceremony and, following a swift golf buggy ride through the venue and on to the church, two "I-do's" later - Lee & Kat were married!

The reception was held on a lawned terrace that overlooked the beautiful Tuscan countryside that complimented the ice-cold Prosecco and canapés perfectly. The wedding party made their way to the main courtyard where they were seated for the wedding breakfast for more al fresco dining, which married local ingredients with traditional Italian cooking that indulged the guests, ahead of the evenings partying. Of which I'm sure went on late into the night!

I'd like to thank Lee & Kat for the hospitality extended to me and my wife during the wedding, it was a pleasure sharing your special day with you and your guests! Here's a preview of what's to come...
