Fifteen friends and family joined them for a lawn ceremony followed by a candlelit gourmet dinner in the wine cellar.

UK Couple Marries in Italian Inspired Destination Wedding

November 27, 2017  |  Sharon & Mark

Six years ago I photographed Jenny and Steve’s wedding. Little did I know, Steve’s little sister, Sharon, would be one of my brides, too! Currently living in a small town in North England, Sharon and Mark traveled all the way to Orlando for their destination wedding at Bella Collina. I love that they chose this Italian inspired venue, but brought lots of personal touches from home. The entire day was really beautiful and it was great sharing it with their families. They had about 15 guests attending their wedding day, and one of the highlights was definitely being part of their intimate ceremony! I also loved getting to meet their flower girl and ring bearer – which were Jenny and Steve’s kids!
