Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Brian & Laura

Amy was the photographer at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Brian & Laura’s wedding.

Brian & Laura’s wedding was the last for me in 2015 – my biggest and best year of photographing weddings. It was also at a venue that I had grown to love over the years and the one where I generally work more than anywhere else. It was going to be a great end to my season.

I had read a book, that I finished on the train travelling to Sorrento, about a girl who had fallen in love with a Vicar. When Laura told me that Brian was an Irish Minister I just knew that this was going to be an extra-special one. It didn’t disappoint. Laura, Brian and their friends and family were so much fun and welcomed me into their party like a guest. I loved every minute of photographing them and when my time for photographing was up, I put down my cameras and danced the night away with them. The train-journey the next day was … absolutely awful as I nursed the hangover from hell. Hey ho. It was worth it :-)

Another wedding season successfully negotiated and another year of doing my hobby for my job. I’m writing this post as I’ve just finished my 2016 wedding season – my 10th! Here’s to my 11th and the blog posts for this year’s wedding will start soon. Thanks so much to Laura & Brian and huge congratulations on the birth of beautiful little Dylan. Amy x

Amy was the photographer at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Andy & Laura’s wedding.

In 2015, I photographed more weddings at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento that in any other single place. Lucky me. It’s absolutely beautiful.

Andy & Laura’s weddings was one of the magical days when everything comes together – the weather, the people, the laughter, the tears, the sunset, the setting – all combining to make a very memorable day. One of my favourite sets of images of all time was the result. What do you think?

Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Tom & Kim

Amy was the photographer at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Tom & Kim’s wedding.

Another wedding in Sorrento and I was back to my favourite Sorrento venue: Villa Antiche Mura. Tom & Kim both got ready at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria, a beautiful hotel in the very centre of Sorrento. Despite photographing many, many weddings in Sorrento before this one, I was treated to photographing a ceremony in a different venue: the Museo Correale. A beautiful room and a treat given that the ceremony took place in an air-conditioned room. With temperatures still in their high 40s, this really was a welcome relief all-round.

Back to the beautiful Villa Antiche Mura to relax with lots of food, drinks, speeches and dancing. A really lovely day.

A toast!

Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Anthony & Suzette

Amy was the photographer at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Anthony & Suzette’s wedding.

My last trip to Sorrento for my last wedding of the year and I was, once again, at Villa Antiche Mura. This wedding provided the biggest and best of days to wrap up another wedding season. 12 hours of nothing but fun basically! Anthony & Suzette were so chilled out and the guests were wonderful.

We had plenty of time for a great photo shoot between the ceremony in the Cloisters before we headed to Villa Antiche Mura. We even ended up asking a local if we could borrow his moped for 5 minutes to use as a prop! The guests were already in full flow when we got back to the villa and the evening was amazing and included a crazy Photo Booth! Here we go:

Hotel La Favorita: a great choice for getting ready.

Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Ric & Claire

Amy was the photographer at Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Ric & Claire’s wedding.

I think I need to buy an apartment in Sorrento for the summer months! I always say hello to Mount Vesuvius as I pass her and start to get excited that I’m almost in Sorrento again! Ric and Claire were such a fun couple that I just remember laughing all day long. Perfect weather once again and I was back at the very beautiful Villa Antiche Mura and working alongside villa owner Michele, who ensures that the couple’s every whim is catered for on the day.

The Grand Hotel La Favourita is such a great place to get ready as it has a wonderful cocktail bar that I love to work in. The Cloisters are always a winner and a photoshoot around town is such good fun. Food at the villa is amazing, possibly only topped by the stunning views. Take a peek:
