Lorna and Neil’s dream wedding in Sorrento: a verdant paradise

Lorna and Neil, a vibrant young couple from Bermuda, discovered their dream wedding destination during a holiday on the Amalfi Coast. Captivated by the lush greenery, they chose the picturesque town of Sorrento for their special day. The couple’s enchantment with Sorrento’s verdant landscapes, reminiscent of a world awash in shades of green, led them to select the luxurious Hotel Excelsior Vittoria in Sorrento as their venue. This haven of flora and fauna set the perfect backdrop for their nuptials, embodying the essence of their love for nature. Organizing such a grand affair from abroad posed challenges, but with the expertise of Claire from “Love in the Lemon Grove,” their fairy tale wedding was flawlessly brought to life.

A Ceremony amidst Sorrento’s historic charm

The day unfolded with Lorna preparing in the opulence of the Excelsior Vittoria’s suites, while Neil awaited in a nearby hotel, close to the cloister where their vows would soon be exchanged. The historic Cloister of St. Francis, nestled in the heart of Sorrento, offered an intimate and photogenic setting for the ceremony. It was here that the unique beauty of Sorrento truly shone through, allowing for extraordinary photography, including an award-winning infrared shot that captured the ethereal atmosphere. As Lorna descended the hotel’s grand staircase, the moment was immortalized, reflecting the beauty and emotion of their wedding day.

Capturing intimate moments and celebratory splendor

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests meandered through Sorrento’s quaint streets, a setting that lent itself to candid photography that captured the essence of the day. Utilizing a telephoto lens, intimate moments were discreetly documented, showcasing the couple’s joy amidst the slow-paced charm of the town. The return to the Excelsior Vittoria was marked by photoshoots in its verdant gardens, a favorite of Lorna’s, and the continuation of celebrations with friends and family. The day culminated with a sunset photo session, heartfelt speeches, and a romantic first dance by the pool, sealing an unforgettable wedding in Sorrento. This narrative not only highlights the beauty of Sorrento as a wedding destination but also emphasizes the skill and creativity of a wedding photographer in Sorrento, capable of capturing the magic of such a momentous occasion.

It was on this occasion that I made infrared photography awarded in the 2018 contest of the “Master of Italian Wedding Photography“.
