The Charm of Sorrento: A Perfect Wedding Destination
Sorrento is the ideal destination for an intimate wedding, with its charming atmosphere and picturesque locations. As wedding photographers in Italy, we have had the pleasure of capturing many beautiful moments in this enchanting city. Our recent experience in Massa Lubrense, just a stone's throw away from Sorrento, was nothing short of magical.
Nicole and James chose to celebrate their love with only seven guests in a stunning Airbnb overlooking the breathtaking Amalfi Coast. We started the day before the wedding with a couple photoshoot at Chiesa di San Costanzo hills, taking advantage of the stunning views and even incorporating a small hiking adventure. The love between them was palpable as they explored Nerano hand-in-hand, creating memories that would last a lifetime.
The following day brought unexpected rain during their symbolic ceremony on the terrace. But true to their adventurous spirits, Nicole and James made the most out of it and embraced the romantic ambiance created by nature's tears. We captured heartfelt moments as they laughed under umbrellas and shared stolen kisses amidst droplets of rain.
Afterwards, we meet again on their wedding day continue capturing their love story within the cozy confines of their Airbnb venue. With lemons as decoration adorning every corner, we documented their genuine happiness against this charming backdrop.
Their celebration concluded with a delectable dinner featuring typical Italian dishes like parmigiana di melanzane and ravioli. Laughter filled the main hall as loved ones toasted to Nicole and James' forever love.
