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?
An absolute winner! Thank you so much for having me capture this amazing day. Amy x
Amy was the photographer in Sorrento, Italy for Kevin & Ruth’s wedding.
Wow – am I behind with this blog or what! My plan was to blog each of my 2015 weddings by the start of my 2016 season but it didn’t quite happen and here I am about to wrap up my 2016 wedding season having blog posts to write for 2015. Never mind! They might come a bit thick and fast for the next couple of weeks. Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Kevin & Ruth had a great day in Sorrento. A small group of family and friends including 3 of their children made for a very close family atmosphere.
The Bride & Groom got ready at The Grand Hotel Riviera, Sorrento. The Cloisters played host to the wedding ceremony. A quick drink at the bar in the little park next door to the Cloisters came next followed by an hour on the roof-top terrace of Hotel La Favourita. A short walk through the old town to O’Parrucchiano Restaurant. What a place! It’s huge and has a big lemon grove inside it. Lemons dangle above your head as you eat. Take a look:
It was a while ago but I remember it well. A wonderful day. Amy x
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.

Look at that wonderful back-drop during the speeches.
Perks of the job!
Tasty-looking … cake. I know what you were thinking ;-)
Loved it. Thanks so much – Amyx
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 Bridesmaids wait in the lobby.
Meanwhile, the Groom waits at the Cloisters.
Happy moments captured.
A small wedding; this is the entire party.
One of my favourites.
So relaxed, lovely.
‘Ti amo.’ Thanks Mr Graffiti artist for providing me with a great backdrop!
The tables laid at the Grand Hotel Royal.
The light got a bit tricky during aperitivi but there were still some lovely shots to be had.
Cocktails and chill out time at the Grand Hotel Royal.

The colour of the sky got so intense. Beautiful.
A lovely day all round. Thanks to Chris & Stacey and their family & friends. -Amyx
