Tuscany International Wedding

A beautiful international wedding in Monticchiello di Pienza. A wonderful place for a wonderful people come from all over the world. Rhys and Johanna decided to get married at Terre di Nano, in the heart of Tuscany and chose Livio Lacurre Studio’s to capture the details and the spirit of the their “special day”.

Wedding in Corfu, Greece

If you want to have a glimpse of paradise, try visiting Corfu, the Greek “Emerald Island” of the Ionian Sea that combines breathtaking scenery, crystal clear azure waters, historical treasures, fascinating traditions, and a multicultural past with the luxury and all the pleasures of a modern cosmopolitan resort. This was the first reason why Christos and Abby, who are both from New York, chose it to host their destination wedding. The second reason was that Christos’s family originates from Corfu. So they came all the way from the United States to celebrate the beginning of their new life there. “Abi planned all the details of the wedding,” Christos explained to me, “but I was the one who decided where it would take place.” A perfect choice for a perfectly matched couple!

It was a fantastic experience, from the private Villa in Corfu to the enthralling sailing trip to the beautiful unspoilt little islands of Paxos and Antipaxos. Guests and family had flown from all over the world – the USA, England, Nigeria – to attend one of the best weddings ever. Wherever you looked, you saw smiling faces. Love and joy were palpable and we all had a great time. And thanks to Vana Efkleidou, from White Ribbon, who coordinated everything, this happy event turned into a unique experience for everyone present. Her skill and her rich experience in the wedding planning industry guaranteed a superb wedding decoration. The pictures speak for themselves… This wedding also gave me the chance to work with a dear friend and talented professional, the videographer George Zorbas. A couple, a stunning place, vibrant colours everywhere, great weather, and good friends – what more could a destination wedding photographer wish for?

Abi & Christos, thank you for everything and may your life be always as happy as your unforgettable wedding day!

Positano Wedding

When you are a destination wedding photographer you have the opportunity to travel to mesmerizing places. Being such for over twenty years now, I don’t simply love it, but am rather devoted to it. Recently I had the chance to revisit its a coastal village Positano on the Amalfi Coast Italy. I’ve always loved the area.

Both Tom and Signe have interesting background stories. He is a professional football player, playing for a team in Norway, while Signe she is a top model, recently featured for the underwear campaign of 50 Shades of Gray.

The reason I am so fond of Positano and the wedding I had the opportunity to partake the photographs speak for themselves. The passionate love of the couple, who both happened to be very good looking !  the beauty of Positano in the background and the spirit of the wedding itself were mesmerizing. The sole reason I am so passionate about being a destination wedding photographer is to reflect just that – the emotions, the people, the love, the passion and the beauty of the surrounding environment.

There are a lot more Destination weddings on my site and blog at www.ianjohnsonphoto.com

 

Transport Themed East London Wedding

This East London wedding was a real treat to photograph, from Shanie’s preparations through to the amazing party at St Matthias Community Centre. I began at an apartment where Shanie and the bridesmaids were getting ready. It was pretty busy, and there was a fabulous reaction when Shanie appeared in her stunning black and red lace dress that she’d designed herself. Shanie and Pete both work for Transport for London and the transport theme began with the bridal party boarding a double decker bus for the journey to All Saint’s Church in Poplar. After the beautiful service we did some family pictures in the church grounds before joining all their guests at St Matthias Community Centre for the wedding breakfast. The former church had been transformed for the meal and party by J&J Occasions. After the wedding breakfast and speeches, the party really started to get going with some traditional Jewish dancing before everyone flooded the dance floor.

Pre-Wedding in Berlin with Derek & Grace

Derek and Grace are really beautiful, bright and sensual couple from Singapore. We were very pleased that they have chosen us to shoot theirs Pre-Wedding in Berlin. It seemed there was not a minute on this day when they were not looking lovingly at each other and enjoyed their feelings and this beautiful day. These emotions took over me. Working with them was a pleasure.
