Eloping in Capri in October means to find sunny days a go-go and tourists from all over the world. I’m always lucky because my couples that come to Italy for weddings are usually happy to follow me through not-so-conventional paths, far from the crazy crowd. This time, with Christine and Domenic, was my time to follow them. After the getting ready we have gone up to Anacapri through the narrow streets of the island with a crazy taxi driver, and then to the Solaro mount, up with the chairlift (amazing stuff, I have to repeat it one day or another). It was a beautiful and moving wedding ceremony, celebrated by Rosa, one of the sweetest women on Earth. Seeing that panorama while the spouses were getting married, swearing and sharing eternal love on the top of the world, has been one of the most beautiful experiences in my whole life. Details and expressions of two gentle and particular souls with a very vintage mood.
Corielle and Glenn asked me to follow them during a walk through Monterosso. I could say that this little town has two faces, like many places in Italy indeed. The first face is the one built around turism, especially in the oldtown. You find good restaurants, lot of cute souvenirs shops. The second face of Monterosso is far more wild, is the one out of the control of the human being: the nature, the sea, the mountains that surround the town, as in the whole Cinque Terre coast. No need to say that Monterosso is a not so-big-place, so its various sides blen together finally. Monterosso it’s an adorable fishermen’s village where you can find ancient traditions still alive.
A bunch of close friends and relatives in an eclectic villa on the beach in Italy. This is how begins the wedding day of Corielle and Glenn in Monterosso. No better way to enjoy a relaxed brunch in a beautiful house on the sea. No better way to celebrate their wedding. The quirky villa on the beach of Monterosso has been the right place to celebrate love and friendship before the wedding ceremony – I will tell you more about Corielle and Glenn soon, no worries. In the meanwhile, discover how we spent few hours before they sworn eternal love to each other in front of the Mediterranean sea.
This is only the first part of the story, I will come back soon with more details about this wonderful day we spent together in Liguria!

This was not the first time I photographed a wedding in Maratea, and I have to say that everytime I’m amazed by the beauty and the charm of these places. This time I was in a location straight on the rocks, with beautiful descendants terraces that leads to the sea. Liz and Philipp are the bride and groom that with family and close friends came from England to celebrate their wedding in Italy. The whole mood of the day was so relaxed and sweet, with a warm breeze and the kids playing around. I loved the typical English irony of Philipp and Liz’friends, a really nice and fun party – as you can guess from the pictures! I loved this wedding so much indeed, it was intimate but also very lively at the same time!
Sometimes it happens that you photograph a wonderful wedding or an event, and you can’t show anything but a little sneak peek. And this is the case. I have been in Ravello in spring – yes, I know this little and fantastic town very well – and I have been in the treasure of the Amalfi Coast: Villa Cimbrone. I was there as a second shooter for my colleague Alessandro – thank you Alessandro for such a nice experience together!
I will try to show you something about the wedding of T&J, but please remember that I can’t show you all! Anyway, the beauty of the day, of this wedding, of Ravello, and of Villa Cimbrone catch the eye! I’ve taken some pictures with my 35mm film camera and also with my beloved Hasselblad. I hope that through the photos you will enjoy the atmosphere and the relaxed and romantic mood of the coast, as we did in person.
