E+R Scottish in Destination Wedding in Sicily

A sunny day in Sicily, a handsome man who steals the heart from a lovely Scottish woman; two lovebirds, completely in love with one another. These are the ingredients for this wedding reportage. We are so happy to have been part of it, happy to have been given the opportunity to write their love story. A cheerful, colorful, extraordinary and a special day: the two newlyweds have read their promises and pledged eternal love in front of a vast audience in a ceremony held by the town deputy mayor. Smiles, tears, amazing speeches and lots of love. A beautiful destination wedding in a fabulous location such as Antica Filanda di Capri Leone, near the city of Messina.

“They told me that to make her fall in love, i had to make her laugh. But everytime she laughs, i’m the one who falls in love.”(T.Ferraris)

Una meravigliosa ed innamoratissima coppia, una calda giornata in Sicilia; un siciliano ruba il cuore di una scozzese Emma Louise: dall’unione di queste due anime nasce questo reportage di matrimonio. Siamo felici di esserne state parte, di aver avuto la possibilità di raccontare il loro amore. Un matrimonio allegro, colorato, un po’ fuori dalle righe, speciale; così come i due sposi che hanno letto le loro promesse e hanno espresso il proprio sì, davanti ai loro invitati ed al vicesindaco. Sorrisi, lacrime, splendide parole, tanto amore. Sono questi gli ingredienti di questo destination wedding in una location bellissima: Antica Filanda di Capri Leone, in provincia di Messina.

A beautiful couple from Uk chose our beautiful Sicily to crown their dreams and their love. The cornerstone of the wedding was the beauty of Taormina and wedding planner of “Taormina Weddings” organized the event.

Destination wedding in Paris – Shangri-La

Endless love and a day to remember – this was my day back in September when I had the opportunity to shoot the destination wedding of Samantha and Cristian in Paris. The couple and most of the guests made their way all the way from Peru for this celebration, a trip well worth though as the wedding was amazing.

Planned and curated by LaFete from Peru and executed by Shagri-La in Paris, it was kinda long distance partnership that worked. We did some things the other way around as the weather was turning, so we had to do the photo shoot before the wedding, I took the couple out for a tour around Paris, to catch some Parisian feels.

Thank you Samantha and Cristian, it was my absolute pleasure being your wedding photographer, and I look forward to seeing you one day.

Villa Regina Teodolinda Wedding | Lake Como, Italy

James & Laura chose Villa Regina Teodolinda to celebrate their destination wedding on Como Lake, Italy. This stunning villa is located in Laglio, just a few kilometers away from Milan & Como. Right here, movie star George Clooney bought the magnificent Villa Oleandra as a summer home! As a destination wedding photographer, I was excited when they booked me for their Lake Como wedding.

A very intimate civil ceremony was held on the terrace above the lake (What a breathtaking view!), followed by a reception on the garden. After that, we had a wonderful couple shooting among the beautiful gardens of the venue and a boat tour on the lake. Check out some of my favorite images from this Villa Regina Teodolinda wedding.

Wedding in Mykonos Pasaji

It’s hard –if not impossible– to visit Mykonos and not fall in love with it. And Kara and Anthony, a lovely, perfectly matched couple, were no exception to the rule! The legendary island of the winds, world famous both for its timeless Cycladic beauty and for its vibrant never-ending parties, has rightly won the title of one of the most popular holiday destinations in Greece; no wonder it eventually evolved into one of the most popular wedding destinations as well.

Rarely have I come across a more relaxed, easygoing couple – or a more determined one, as they had been carefully planning their dream wedding for almost a year to make sure it would be exactly that. And it was. Because, you know what they say, when you want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you to achieve it, as Paulo Coelho would assure you…So, Kara and Anthony’s wedding had it all: beauty and love, amazing friends and relatives eager to share their happiness, a breathtakingly beautiful landscape and, of course, glorious sunny weather!

The pre-wedding party included a sailing trip around the island, with lots of fun, dancing, and spectacular jumping into the crystal blue waters, and dinner at one of the best restaurants in Mykonos, Avli tou Thodori, which specializes in high quality traditional Greek cuisine. There was a nice breezy atmosphere at the preparation of the beautiful blonde bride, who was stunning in her exquisite lace wedding dress, while the bridesmaids looked very chic in their elegant blue dresses. The ceremony took place literally by the sea in Pasaji, where Caterina Vogli and her talented Mood Effects team had decorated the Jewish wedding canopy with fresh white, pink and pale yellow flowers. This was my first Jewish wedding, and I was impressed by the meaningful rituals and age-old customs such as the breaking of the glass and the chair dance at the reception. The day culminated in the wedding party, where an awesome saxophonist, a great singer and a fantastic DJ had the guests dancing all night long. The wedding celebrations went on the following day with another party at the beach restaurant Kuzina, which offers an eclectic menu inspired both by European and Eastern tastes.

The final chapter of this beautiful wedding story was written with the couple’s photoshoot at the windmills, the trademark of Mykonos. Dear Kara and Anthony, thank you so much for your trust and friendship. May the sun of love always shine upon your life!
