JHales Fotografia is an English born photographer living and photographing weddings in Italy.
Sorrento is one of those wedding destinations in Italy that always exceeds expectations. Stunning views, the Bay of Naples to one side, Vesuvius to the other combined with stunning locations like
the Villa Antiche Mura.
This couple started their preparations a little way down the road at the Hotel Mediterrano Sorrento, suffice to say from the image above that the views from this hotel make for a dream like location to start your wedding day in Italy!
As the bride made her final preparations upstairs the groom and wedding guests gathered in the hotel gardens, ready for the short walk along to the Villa Antiche Mura.
And once the coast was clear the bride made her way downstairs to her waiting father.
September turned out to be the perfect weather for a wedding in Sorrento and the sun shone as the bride made her way ‘down the aisle’ to her waiting groom.
The ceremony was held in the gardens of the Villa with a backdrop of the Bay of Naples to give the wedding guests one of the best seats on the Amalfi Coast.
After the ceremony the guests and the wedding party had the time to really enjoy being in the heart of Sorrento.
And gave me time to get a mixture of casual and reportage wedding photographs that captured the relaxed and fun atmosphere of the wedding.
Of course another great reason to have your wedding in Italy is the Italian food!
Before the guests sat down we took the opportunity to grab a few informal shots around the gardens of the villa.
This really was a fun wedding to photograph, the couple were so easy to work with and it was reflected in the photographs afterwards. I don’t think there was a single photograph that didn’t have that feel good factor!
This part of the afternoon is an ideal time to get some of these semi posed shots as the hottest part of the day had passed and the light and skies was just perfect.
As the sun set it was time for the wedding breakfast and the speeches. I love this shot below that really picked up a great expression on the bride as she listened intently to her father’s speech.
And to top the evening off, what a location to cut the cake!
Jason photographs weddings all over Italy from Lake Como in the north to Sorrento in the south of Italy (and of course everywhere in between)!
