They’re amazing! The emotions! They are so gorgeous, you are so talented. We can’t stop looking at them!
Karina and Paresh’s wedding at Villa Parisi, Tuscany, was an amazing celebration of love between these two awesome human’s along with their nearest and dearest. I’ve known Paresh since a young age, as we used to live on the same road together, but the first time I met Karina, was outside a restaurant, and they were asking me for recommendations of places to have their destination wedding. I had just come back from Sarah and Seb’s wedding in Tuscany, and told them to check out place’s around there, and Karina, after days of searching found the perfect venue, just along the Italian coastline, Villa Parisi in Castiglioncello, Tuscany.
When I arrived at Villa Parisi, I could see exactly why Karina and Paresh chose this beautiful wedding venue. It sits above the coastline, overlooking the sea and the most amazing view of the sunset, which I witnessed later on. On the day I arrived, later that evening was the Welcome party, where Paresh and Karina, greeted all their guests that had travelled from abroad, along with a few speeches, plenty of wine and delicious food too.
The next day, was their wedding day. Karina started her day off, early in the morning with a stroll by the sea, the perfect way to start any day in my opinion, before making her way to start getting ready along with her bridesmaids. Whilst, Paresh and his groomsmen started their day, with a few drinks by the pool, before making their way to get ready. I spent most of my time in-between the pool and the bridesmaids getting ready. The wedding day was a family affair throughout, Paresh’s sister Nim, is an extremely talented make up artist and got Karina ready, and Paresh’s brother in-law Bick is one of the UK’s sought after wedding dj’s.
Just before the start of the wedding ceremony, Karina sent their daughter down with a gift for Paresh, she gave him a small box and when he opened it, he saw that Karina, had bought him a Harley Davidson, yeah, a frickin’ Harley! He was speechless, and rightly so, it was an amazing moment, in a day full of amazing moments throughout.
The wedding ceremony took place on the Terrace of Villa Parisi, overlooking the sea. After the ceremony, it was onto the drinks reception, followed by an evening meal, speeches, and then a crazy party by the swimming pool.
It was a true honour when Karina and Paresh asked me to document their wedding, it felt like documenting one of my close friend’s wedding and it was great to catch up and see so many familiar faces. Karina and Paresh, thank you so so much for letting me document your wedding, you guys have the best family and friends around you.
I could go on and on, about how amazing Karina and Paresh’s wedding was in Italy, but i’ll let the images do the talking instead. Here are my favourite frames from the Italian wedding at Villa Parisi, Castiglioncello.
