Wedding Photographer: Albergo Il Monastero, Castello Aragonese, Ischia: John & Sema

Amy was the wedding photographer at Albergo Il Monastero, Castello Aragonese, Ishcia, Italy for John & Sema’s wedding.

How excited was I to go back to the stunning island of Ischia for the wedding of John & Sema?! Sema and I had chatted so much via email before the big day that we felt like we already knew each other really well from the moment that I arrived. Castello Aragonese on Ischia is an incredibly impressive sight and well worth a visit if you’re on the island. The beautiful-refurbished hotel ‘Albergo Il Monastero’ is situated within the walls of the Castle with wonderful views over the island.

The atmosphere was electric for the entire evening and the party was only just starting when I left at 1:30am. I didn’t really want to leave but I was on a 6:30am boat the next morning off the island. Sniff sniff!

Castello Aragonese, Ischia. What a place!

What can I say. Honestly, I didn’t want to leave. I kept having to remind myself that I was actually working and your big day reaffirmed that I have the best job in the world. Thank you so much for being so brilliant. Amy x
