A wedding in Sorrento is something that you can not forget so easily, especially when the venue is such a wonderful Italian villa like Villa Silvana and the bride is getting ready at the Hotel Bellevue Syrene, while the groom’s preparation is at the beautiful Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria.
Sicily could be a very passionate and sweet land, especially when you choose it as your destination for a secret elopement. Natalie and James decided to get married in Sicily from Australia, and this was a real surprise for both their families indeed. First they got married in Sicily and then having another celebration with family and friends in Australia.
An elegant and also natural wedding in Tuscany is something beautiful and easy to have. It’s easy because in Tuscany you find everything you need for an unforgettable wedding: art, history, nature itself. This is the elopement in Tuscany of an Australian couple, Dianna and Matthew.
I was invited by some fellows photographers for a Camp in an ancient Italian villa in the Monferrato region, where some friends asked me to share some of my experiences as a wedding photographer. I’ve spent a great time with my friends and colleagues, sharing our days in the villa, having fun and of course photographing and talking about photography all the time. During the Camp (oh, I will tell you more about this Camp very soon!), we took some time to take portraits of each other, so I’m very grateful to Valeria for standing in front of my lens for some shots with my film cameras. It’s always a little bit challenging but also very moving to me to have the chance to take portraits of colleagues, friends or my beloved in general.
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.
