Wedding Photographer: Villa Eva, Ravello, Amalfi Coast: John & Fiona

Amy was the wedding photographer at Villa Eva, Ravello, Amalfi Coast, Italy for John & Fiona’s wedding.

From Orvieto, I travelled down to Ravello for the wedding of John & Fiona. The beautiful weather turned to thunder storms but in fact made it pretty magical. The noise of the rain during the ceremony was phenomenal but as soon as the doors were opened and John & Fiona made their exit the sun came out – don’t you just love those moments!

Fiona got ready at the beautiful Villa Fraulo and the ceremony was at Santa Maria Gradillo: a church with a very unique interior. Due to the rain, drinks in the square were moved to a local bar that actually made it a more private affair and preferable to John & Fiona. We found time to enter into the wonderful Villa Rufolo for photographs. If you’re visiting Ravello, Villa Rufolo is definitely worth the entrance fee.

After that we met up with the guests again and made our way to Villa Eva, another stunning Villa with wonderful views overlooking Maiori and the rest of the Amalfi Coast. Such a chilled-out couple and a very memorable day. Here we go:

Well, Brides & Grooms don’t come much more relaxed than you two! You didn’t even care that it was raining! So long as you didn’t get wet in your Cabriolet around Tuscany! Hope you had a great time. I’ll be in touch very soon with the access details for the rest of your gallery. Thanks for everything, Amy x

Wedding Photographer: Ravello, Amalfi Coast: John & Alison

Amy was the wedding photographer at Ravello, Amalfi Coast, Italy for John & Alison’s wedding.

The weekend of the 23rd / 24th September was a two-wedding-weekend for me. The first wedding was in beautiful Ravello, a place that I now feel I know like the back of my hand. This was a wedding that I was really looking forward to. It would be rude to mention ages but let’s just say that the gorgeous bride, Alison had waited rather a long time for this day to come.

Villa Fraulo, a wonderfully luxurious and exclusive resort, played host to the couple and their guests on this special day. The wedding itself took place at the Giardini della Principessa di Piemonte which has the most impressive view along to the Bay of Salerno and we found time to wonder around the very pretty little town of Ravello and visit Villa Rufolo. Take a look:

John got ready in Hotel Bonadies also in the centre of Ravello. The view from the balcony wasn’t too bad!

Isn’t this beautiful too? John & Alison were brilliant models and despite not looking forward to it, John kept telling me how much he was enjoying being photographed :-)

From Villa Rufolo, we spent 15 minutes or so in Ravello’s main square. Andy an I are on the hunt for big pots for our garden!
