C and I arrived in Montestigliano a few hours ago. It’s hot. Man alive it’s hot. Kim & Hugh spent the best part of the last hour showing us around the Villa Pippistrelli. This is not just a Villa though – from what I can make out we have pretty much an entire village to play in.
The surrounding scene is breathtaking, am I actually here? We’re hanging in the square where tonight the guests will gather ahead of tomorrows wedding. Tonight is for relaxing, a hog roast spits and crackles on an open fire as nearby children are fooling around on haystacks that are dotted around the courtyard. A quirky looking cat drinks from a saucer of milk. I’m tired now after the long travel but I don’t want to sleep. I want to savour every moment. How many people can say they truly love their job? This is what I dreamed of doing for a long long time. This is most definitely going to be wedding photography with a unique twist. I’m here. There’s nowhere to go.
