Elopement in Val d’Orcia

Tawnya e Apolo

A magnificent Elopement in Val d’Orcia, at Castello di Velona, the only thermal castle in the world located on a hill in Montalcino, Tuscany.

Tawnya and Apolo are an American couple from Denver who decided to symbolically tie the knot in Tuscany, at the elegant Castello di Velona in Val d’Orcia.
The couple got ready together, and it was a very romantic and emotional moment when they helped each other put on their outfits, a beautiful metaphor for their life together.
The ceremony, held with a breathtaking view, was deeply heartfelt. The officiant read some dedications written by their closest friends, and it concluded with the exchange of rings using the rope ritual.
For the photo shoot, we enjoyed all the panoramic corners of the castle and then got in the car to immerse ourselves in the typical Tuscan countryside of Val d’Orcia.

I am grateful to have been your photographer, Tawnya and Apolo, on this special and intimate day.
