Wedding Photographer: The Cloisters & Grand Hotel Royal, Sorrento: Chris & Stacey

Amy was the photographer in the Cloisters & Grand Hotel Royal, Sorrento, Italy for Chris & Stacey’s wedding.

I stayed in Sorrento for most of the week to photograph 3 weddings there over 4 days. Chris & Stacey also chose the Cloisters for their ceremony but the evening reception was to be held in the Grand Hotel Royal; a new venue for me. The heat-wave continued with temperatures in the late 30s but the Cloisters has a big tree in the centre providing enough shade for the wedding party to stay fairly comfortable. We were treated to a wonderful sunset in the evening as you’ll see below.

Stacey got ready in the Hotel Ambasciatori.

The staff are really awkward about letting ‘extra’ people into the room but they just kept sneaking in and nobody knew :-)

The light got a bit tricky during aperitivi but there were still some lovely shots to be had.
