A sweet Irish wedding in Amalfi Coast
Orlaigh and Alan are a beautiful young couple from Ireland. Irish people are well known for their hospitality and kindness, so the two of them make no exception. We immediately empathised the first time we got in touch, which was exactly two year before their wedding, when they were looking for a wedding photographer in Amalfi Coast. One year later they came to Amalfi to get everything ready for the big day and to choose a venue for the wedding party, therefore we had a chance to meet. I was delighted to get to know such a sweet couple. We had a pleasant talk over a good beer, and I soon realized that I would have been the witness of a very romantic wedding.
A wedding full of emotions
Finally the special day arrived. I showed up at the villa far in advance to capture the excitement of the families and couple getting ready. From the very first moment I could feel love in the air. Everyone was so excited that I had countless chances to capture great moments and tears of joy in their eyes. During the getting ready, bride and groom got gifts from each other. The bridesmaids showed up and gave the bride a present from the groom, making the mood so emotional. The same happened while the groom was setting up for the ceremony in his room, ready to go. The wedding celebration was held in the gorgeous church of San Gennaro in Praiano. The rich flower arrangements, the warm light coming from the stained glass windows and the vivid colours of the church turned the romantic atmosphere into a dream. Above all, the celebration was really heart-felt.
After the ceremony we went to Amalfi for the first part of the photoshoot and some couple portraits. They had so much fun walking around the town’s crowded streets. As a wedding photographer in Amalfi Coast I know the area intimately, so I suggested to go to the pier at sunset to take advantage of the gorgeous scenery of the sea and the town. Finally, we went to the fiord of Praiano for some romantic couple portraits. Watching everything unfold just naturally, yet perfectly, was truly inspiring. The party was at Villa Scarpariello Relais, an elegant historic villa built on a sea cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
What Orlaigh an Alan wrote about me:
I have to tell you how blown away I am with the photographs, they are absolutely perfect. You managed to capture everything we asked for on the day. They are full of fun, emotion and some are simply beautiful. I feel like laughing and crying (happy tears!) and so many happy emotions as I look through them. You captured the true us. I honestly could not be happier. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, you have truly made it possible for us to relive the day in our minds and hearts forever!
