Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Stuart & Sarah

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

Mentally whisking myself back to a beautiful, hot day in Sorrento for the gorgeous wedding of Stuart & Sarah in mid-July (I know, I know – I’ve never been so behind with my blog but we have just moved house!)

The best make-up girl out there, Zoe Graham, did Sarah’s make-up for her. She looked so gorgeous. The Cloisters looked lovely too as Sarah had opted for a white carpet aisle rather than the usual red. After the ceremony, Group Shots under the shady Cloisters and a fun photo-shoot around town, we headed to Villa Antiche Mura – one of Sorrento’s most impressive wedding venues.

After the meal and speeches, the staff laid out the tastiest-looking desert table (I did have a little taste ;-) That was followed by lots of partying and even a Photo Booth. Loved it!

To be honest, this was a bit of an experiment and took quite a lot of goes to get right – I think it came out pretty well in the end!

Huge thanks again to Michele, villa owner and brilliant wedding planner for looking after me so well. Thanks too to Sarah & Stuart, family and friends for such a fun day. Amy x

Wedding Photographer: Positano & Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Franklin & Sharon

Amy was the photographer at Positano and Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Franklin & Sharon’s wedding.

I think I need a holiday-home in Sorrento! I was there again :-) This time for the wedding of gorgeous Irish couple, Franklin & Sharon. Both the Bride and Groom got ready at the Hotel Bellevue Syrene, one of Sorrento’s most beautiful hotels. Sharon’s dress was to die for and the Bridesmaids’ dresses were nearly as gorgeous! I’ve uploaded a folder of images to my Facebook page and you wouldn’t believe how many comments I’ve had about the dresses!

We went over to Positano for the ceremony and the stunning church, Santa Maria Assunta before heading back to Sorrento and my favourite place, Villa Antiche Mura. Michele, villa owner and top wedding planner, is brilliant and to me, this really is the best venue choice for a wedding in Sorrento. Take a look:

Wedding Photographer: Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Stephen & Gina

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

My first trip of many this summer to Sorrento was for the wedding of Stephen & Gina at the glorious Villa Antiche Mura. What a laugh we all had! Gina and the girls got ready in the most beautiful suite in the impressive Grand Hotel Vittoria Excelsior before we piled onto the famous white train to the Villa.

Villa Antiche Mura is certainly one of my favourite venues in Sorrento. The views are wonderful, the building is lovely and villa manager Michele runs a tight ship. A highlight of the day for me was Gina’s Dad’s speech song – genius! Take a peak:

Impressive Coastline.

Wedding Photographer: Positano Town Hall & Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento: Matthew & Lucienne

Amy was the photographer at Positano Town Hall & Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento, Italy for Matthew & Lucienne’s wedding.

I had extra pressure on me for this big day as Matthew & Lucy had changed their venue to Villa Antiche Mura because of my glowing recommendation! I was so relieved and happy that they absolutely loved it. Well, how could anybody not?! The setting, the Villa, the food, the sunset, the staff … everything is perfect.

The Bride & Groom both got ready in Sorrento and travelled around the coast to Positano Town Hall for their wedding ceremony. We travelled back to Sorrento and to the beautiful Villa Antiche Mura for an evening of food, drinks, fun and laughter. A beautiful and memorable occasion:

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

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

I was really looking forward to photographing a wedding at Villa Antiche Mura in Sorrento for the second time this summer. It’s such a beautiful venue that caters for weddings both indoors and out with a wonderful view of the Bay of Naples. Guests were completely blown away by the stunning views.

Ben & Claire both got ready at the Grand Hotel Aminta and then travelled separately to Villa Antiche Mura for the ceremony and reception. Claire more than stole the show in her breath-taking Vera Wang dress and whist fears of rain showers threatened all day, it held off and in fact made for a wonderfully dramatic sky as dusk fell.

We all had great fun doing the Photobooth too but I’ll do a separate post about that at a later date. Here we go:

Important details.
