Wedding photographer: Cortona & Villa Petrischio, Tuscany: David & Vivienne

September 26th, 2 comments

Amy was the wedding photographer at Cortona & Villa Petrischio, Tuscany, Italy for the wedding of David & Vivienne.

Cortona! Just 45 minutes away from home and one of the most wonderful Tuscan towns. Irish couple David and Vivienne got ready and held their wedding reception at the lovely Villa Petrischio, just a short hop from Cortona. A beautiful villa with great views and a relaxed feel to it. The ceremony took place in the centre of Cortona in the Cattedrale di Santa Maria, a church which dates back to the 11th century.

The day was such fun with a particular highlight being the tuc-tuc ride back and to to the church. Well done to fabulous wedding planner Elia for all of his great work. Take a look:

Wedding Photographer: Positano & Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Franklin & Sharon

September 16th, What do you think?

Amy was the photographer at Positano and Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Franklin & Sharon’s wedding.

I think I need a holiday-home in Sorrento! I was there again :-) This time for the wedding of gorgeous Irish couple, Franklin & Sharon. Both the Bride and Groom got ready at the Hotel Bellevue Syrene, one of Sorrento’s most beautiful hotels. Sharon’s dress was to die for and the Bridesmaids’ dresses were nearly as gorgeous! I’ve uploaded a folder of images to my Facebook page and you wouldn’t believe how many comments I’ve had about the dresses!

We went over to Positano for the ceremony and the stunning church, Santa Maria Assunta before heading back to Sorrento and my favourite place, Villa Antiche Mura. Michele, villa owner and top wedding planner, is brilliant and to me, this really is the best venue choice for a wedding in Sorrento. Take a look:

Wedding Photographer: Parco Negombo, Ischia: Mark & Whitney

Amy was the wedding photographer at Parco Negombo, Ischia, Italy for Mark & Whitney’s wedding.

This was my third trip to the beautiful island of Ischia, an hour or so by boat from Naples. I was really excited to go back, it’s such a gorgeous place. Mark and Whitney had travelled all the way from Chicago to marry on the island and had chosen a very unique venue, Parco Negombo to tie the knot. If you ever go to the island of Ischia, then do take a day out to go and truly relax at Parco Negombo. Pools, saunas, jacuzzi’s, waterfalls, hammocks, a private beach and a large pool sit in and amongst the craggy rocks and luscious surroundings. It’s stunning.

Cafe Colonica is a restaurant in the Parco and take a look below, the styling for the wedding meal was genius. Something very different!

Mark & Whitney got ready close to Parco Negombo at the Garden Villas Resort.

Wedding Photographer: Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda: Craig & Laura

July 29th, 2 comments

Amy was the wedding photographer at Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda, Italy for Craig & Laura’s wedding.

All of the readers of this blog know that I am a huge fan of photographing weddings at Malcesine Castle, Lake Garda and I am lucky enough to do so several times each year. My first trip this summer was for the wedding of Scottish couple, Craig & Laura. A beautifully-hot day made for the walk up to the steps at the Castle a tough job but it was more than worth the effort; the views from the terrace never cease to amaze me and the guests.

A boat ride cooled us all off and the evening reception at La Voglia restaurant was in full swing when I left. Take a peak:

The majestic Malcesine Castle.

Wedding Photographer: Palazzo Marziale, Sorrento: Rob & Roz

Amy was the photographer in the Cloisters, Sorrento and at Palazzo Marziale, Sorrento, Italy for Rob & Roz’s wedding.

Back to Sorrento for the wedding of Rob & Roz and the beautiful venue Palazzo Marziale: it’s in a great spot too being so close to the ceremony venue, the Cloisters of San Francesco. Roz started her day with all of the wedding guests on the terrace of Hotel Minerva sipping prosecco with orange juice. The view was wonderful from the terrace, looking out over a hazy Sorrento and the Bay of Naples.

After the ceremony, we had time for photographs around the old streets of Sorrento before surprising the guests to the elegance of Palazzo Marziale and a wonderful evening. Here we go:
