Wedding Photographer: Palazzo Marziale, Sorrento: Phil & Claire

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

Nearing the end of my wedding season, I took my last trip of the year down to Sorrento for the wedding of Phil & Claire. They had chosen Palazzo Marziale for their reception and Claire and her girls also got ready there. A very elegant venue and perfectly placed since it’s just a few steps from the ceremony location, The Cloisters.

A few spots of rain towards the end of the ceremony didn’t dampen spirits and it soon cleared allowing us to go for a wander through the old town for photographs. Aperitivi and a lovely dinner followed with speeches, cake and first dance dotted throughout the courses. Here we go:

Wedding Photographer: Casale de’Pasquinelli, Lucca: Ben & Jodie

Amy was the wedding photographer at Casale de’Pasquinelli, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy for Ben & Jodie’s wedding.

Ben & Jodie sought out a beautiful venue called Casale de’Pasquinelli which is pretty hidden in the hills to the north of Lucca. A perfect September day, the ceremony location was absolutely breath-taking and there were so many beautiful little spots around the Villa for photographs that I was really spoilt for choice.

As the sun went down the scene turned from beautiful to spectacular as guests enjoyed their wedding meal under hundreds of hanging lights. The view from the dance floor wasn’t bad either! Take a look:

Ben just ready.

Yellow theme – loved it.

Wedding Photographer: Sorrento: Gareth & Tracy

Amy was the photographer in the Cloisters and at Villa Ciuffo, Sant’Agata, Sorrento, Italy for Gareth & Tracy’s wedding.

I go to Sorrento and Positano several times each year and always pass by the sign for the little town of Sant’Agata but have never been – until now! What a spot. The views you get as you drive up the steep road towards the town are wonderful as you can see both sides of the peninsula at the same time.

Tracy got ready at Villa Ciuffo, a gorgeous Villa very close to the village centre. We travelled down to the centre of Sorrento where Gareth and the guests were waiting in the Cloisters for the ceremony. The closest hotel to the Cloisters in the Hotel Tramontano. A stunning hotel where guests enjoyed aperitivi in one of the lovely rooms or on the balcony over-looking the Bay of Naples.

We then took the Fun Bus up to the Villa and enjoyed the rest of evening with stunning food and speeches. Take a look:

Gorgeous Tracy.

Wedding Photographer: Villa Dievole, Tuscany: Dan & Sam

Amy was the wedding photographer at Villa Dievole, Tuscany, Italy for Dan & Sam’s wedding.

Situated about 20 minutes north of Siena, Villa Dievole is one of the most beautiful places to spend some time. I was so lucky to be photographing not one but two weddings during this week of September at this stunning spot, the first being the wedding of Dan & Sam. The entire wedding took place at the Villa meaning that the guests could relax as they didn’t have to travel.

The ceremony took place on the lawn, under the trees with the Villa in the background and the most magnificent views over-looking the Tuscan countryside in the foreground. Aperitivi were served just a few steps away whilst the ceremony area was turned into a beautiful setting ready for the evening meal and celebrations. My fabulous friend and wedding planner Jackie just so happened to be a close friend of the Bride & Groom and really surpassed herself for this one! Just wait ’til you see the table plan! Here we go:

Love this idea!
