Florence Wedding Photographer

My name is Chris Bottrell and I am a Florance wedding photographer, based in the UK. I travel the world photographing destination weddings in my own unique style. Florence is one of the best regions in Italy to get married. The landscape and climate are perfect for a spring or summer wedding.

Florence Wedding photographer

Florence, inside the soul of Tuscany, is the perfect city in which to get married.  Numerous couples from around the world desire to get hitched in Renaissance Florence and choose to celebrate the happiest time of their life in this intimate city.

Florence offers the perfect setting when it comes to a memorable wedding, starting with its beautiful stone palaces all over the city to the romance of Ponte Vecchio and the lush rolling hills that surround the city with incredible views of Florence’s horizon. As a Florence wedding photographer, I always get excited then an enquiry comes in for this beautiful region.

The stunning Palazzo Vecchio that faces on Piazza della Signoria provides a splendid area for civil weddings. The newlyweds will find themselves within the soul of the city among some of the most famous and beautiful spots in the world. That in itself will make the occasion unforgettable but it’s certainly not everything, your wedding album is going to be extremely special, recording memories of your unforgettable day with Florence as the backdrop. Who wouldn’t cherish featuring wedding photographs with Florence’s skyline in the background as seen from Piazzale Michelangelo?

Anyone wanting a religious ceremony can choose to celebrate their vows in one of the numerous small churches populating the hills surrounding Florence. An ancient church in the middle of the countryside offers a private and romantic setting in which to recite your marriage vows. The wedding reception can follow inside a beautiful villa or perhaps in its garden savouring an enchanting perspective of Florence and the Tuscan countryside.

If you are thinking of getting married in Florence and are searching for a Florence wedding Photographer then please get in touch.


This agreement is between the Bride and Groom and Christopher Bottrell T/A “Chris Bottrell Photography”
Wedding Photography Package and services required (as described on our web site www.chrisbottrellphotography.co.uk)

The booking fee is due on signing this agreement (Booking Fee is 30% of the amount agreed), with the balance of the amount agreed due 14 days before the day of the wedding.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT: This agreement contains the entire understanding between Chris Bottrell T/A “Chris Bottrell Photography” hereafter “the Photographers” and the Bride and Groom.
CONFIRMATION: A signed “CONTRACT FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES” and payment of the booking fee are necessary to confirm the stated wedding services from the Photographers.
PRE-WEDDING CONSULTATION: This normally happens at the time of booking. The bride and groom will outline broadly what is required and the Photographers will advise on planning, logistics, and timings where needed. If required the bride and groom are welcome to pop in for an additional chat closer to the time of the wedding (about 2 weeks) to iron out the remaining details. In any case, we will contact you by phone a few days before the wedding to ensure that there have been no last-minute changes.
COOPERATION: The bride and groom and the Photographers consent to happily cooperate and communicate with each other to achieve the best possible result within the understanding of this contract. We recommend that the wedding photographer(s) be provided with a helper (usually the best man) who will point out key individuals to be photographed. The photographer(s ) may also require the assistance of the best man in organizing family groups. The bride and groom also agree to give the photographer(s) sufficient warning of key events at the wedding to give the photographer time to prepare e.g. Bouquet throwing, cutting the cake, speeches, etc. Please note that not all guests at the wedding like having their photo taken. In such cases, the wedding photographer(s) will use his discretion but cannot be held responsible for a lack of photos of these people.
THE SCHEDULE: Our shooting schedule, style of working and experience are designed to achieve a great set of wedding photos for the bride and groom, accomplished with good humour and enjoyed by all concerned. Both the bride and groom and the Photographers, therefore, agree that punctuality and cheerful cooperation are essential to producing outstanding photographic results. In cases where the wedding does not run on time (for example, extreme lateness by the bride arriving at the church) we cannot guarantee to take our normal set of photos although in such circumstances we will do our absolute best to compensate.
PAPARAZZI WEDDING GUESTS: All your guests will have digital cameras and all your guests will want to photograph the bride and groom. In the spirit of cheerful cooperation, the bride and groom agree to give the Photographers precedence over your guests in order to take the photographs required for the wedding services described above. We cannot be held liable for a lack of wedding photos if guests taking their own photos of the bride and groom have continually interrupted the photographer’s work.
HOUSE RULES: Note the Photographers are sometimes limited by rules imposed by registrars, ministers, and venue management as to what can and cannot be done. For example, some ministers insist that no flash photography is allowed, and others will insist that the Photographers shoot from a specific location. In such circumstances, the bride and groom agree to accept the technical limitations that may be imposed on the equipment used. We advise the bride and groom to make themselves aware of the rules of the venue concerned and if necessary negotiate with the personnel concerned.
COPYRIGHT LAW: English Copyright Law states that the copyright of photographs remains with the photographer. The Photographers grant the Bride and Groom permission to make copies of the images under the following conditions. The images taken by the Photographers are for personal use by the bride and groom and their friends and relatives. Selling, Publication or any Commercial use of the photographs is not allowed without prior written permission from the Photographers.
MODEL RELEASE: The Bride and Groom grant the Photographer the irrevocable and unlimited consent to use the photographs of the bride and groom for editorial, competition and advertising, to alter the photographs without restriction, and to copyright the images. The Bride and groom hereby release the Photographers and its legal representatives, heirs and assigns from all liability and claims in connection with the images.
LIMIT OF LIABILITY: If a photographer is too ill or becomes injured and cannot supply the wedding services specified above the Photographers will try to book a replacement wedding photographer. If a replacement photographer cannot be found then liability is limited to a refund of any payments received.
Photographers have working methods in place to prevent the loss or damage to your images. However, there is the unlikely possibility that images may be lost, stolen or destroyed for reasons in or beyond our control. In these circumstances liability is limited to the return of fees paid for the service or part thereof according to the percentage of images supplied.
BOOKING FEE/DEPOSIT: In the event of the bride and groom cancelling the wedding for whatever reason the booking fee is non-refundable. It will be considered as liquidated damages to the Photographers.
