The Amalfi Coast is known for its rugged Mediterranean beauty, making it the perfect place for a romantic wedding celebration like that enjoyed by Paul, Carla and their guests in July.
The day was blessed with blue skies and brilliant sunshine, making the colours even brighter and the landscape look even more spectacular as a backdrop. The bride, radiant in a beautifully simple and appropriately floaty white, strapless bridal gown and lace trimmed veil, could hardly contain her happiness, which bubbled over to affect everyone around her.
The simple, clean white theme was perfect in the soaring temperatures of the Italian summer and emphasised the beauty of the simple chapel that was chosen for the couple’s intimate ceremony, attended by their nearest and dearest, and carried a feeling of refined elegance right through the day and night.
Heading out of the church to greet guests standing outside was one of the most emotionally charged moments of the day, and both Carla and Paul were overwhelmed by the love and support of everyone around them.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds decided to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings to have a few unforgettable shots taken with the Amalfi Coast in all its glory acting as a truly magical setting.
When the couple rejoined their guests, everyone was able to relax and enjoy a delicious meal of freshly prepared Italian delicacies on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean. As the sun began to set, soft, romantic lighting was used to illuminate the event and add to the special atmosphere.
The soft glow of the lights and the deep blue of the Mediterranean evening made for the perfect backdrop for the cutting of the wedding cake... and this photo speaks volumes about the love the couple share for one another.
