Win Pre-Wedding Photography in Florence

Win a Romantic Weekend Break for 2 in Florence with an Exclusive Pre-Wedding Photoshoot with Scott-Wood Photography

If you were to ask any bride for their top 10 tips for planning a really great wedding, then an engagement or pre wedding photo shoot would certainly be at the top of their list. Brides in-the-know will tell you, that one of the reasons they looked so fantastic in their wedding photos on their big day is because they took the time before the wedding to learn how to work the camera to their best advantage and relax, so that they could look their best on the big day. If the thought of ‘working the camera’ fills you with dread, then think again. It’s not about strutting your stuff and being asked to do crazy stunts at all (unless you want to of course!), it’s about finding out simple things like what’s your best side and how to move in front of the camera to get fantastic results. Above all, a pre wedding photo shoot is a great way of capturing such a happy time that you can look back on, with fond memories for years to come.

Besides being great fun and getting to feel like a celebrity, it is also a really great way to get to know your photographer and to find out how they work. Your photographer can also get to know you and find out what you like and don’t like so that they can work with you and help you feel as relaxed as possible and ultimately look as good as possible, which is what every bride (and groom) wants! has teamed up with the extremely talented Scott-Wood Photography, valued members of our exclusive, invitation only, Premier Wedding Photography Portfolio. Together, we are offering one lucky couple the opportunity to win a romantic engagement shoot in Florence, Italy.

St Marks Apartments

On the ‘Oltrano’ or ‘the other side’ of the River Arno sits Via Maggio, home to the stunning newly renovated apartments that sit above St Marks English Church. Housed in a magnificent Medici building huge doors open onto from the street onto a cool hallway and a solid stone stairway that leads to your ‘home’ in Florence.

No expense has been spared on the finish, from the oak and cotto tiled floors in rooms flooded with light from gloriously high shuttered windows, gorgeous kitchen and dining areas to linger over pasta and wine, to supremely comfortable beds and deep baths for soaking weary city limbs.

These apartments are perfectly situated for all that Florence has to offer. Walk down the stairs from your apartment and visit the church that has been serving the English in Tuscany for 125 years, its cool interiors quietly displaying its works of art including original pre-Raphaelite paintings, a perfect place to hold your wedding perhaps? A heel step away from the church and you will find the likes of Prada and Ferragamo, and the vibrant cafes and restaurants that Florence has to offer – start the day with coffee and a pastry at the coffee shop on the corner of Via Maggio and Santa Spirito, enjoy a prosecco at Procacci, just over the bridge on Via di Tornabuoni and then maybe cook dinner in the apartment with gorgeous offerings from Olio e Convivium, one of the best delicatessens in Florence right on your doorstep.
