Helen and Daniel chose the beautiful coastal town of Sorrento for their destination wedding in Italy. For two thousand years visitors have come to the small southern Italian town famous for it’s wonderful lemons and fantastic views over the Bay of Naples.
The rehearsal dinner was held at Casale Antonietta, a bed and breakfast farm on the outskirts of town. The farm has relaxing activities including horseback riding as well as wonderful lemon and olive groves to be explored.
The ceremony was held at the historical Cloisters of San Francesco, which is an outdoor courtyard-like structure that is part of a medieval monastery that dates back to the 8th century.
In between the ceremony and reception Giorgio took the bride and groom for pictures at the famous Pompeii Ruins. In the year 79 AD the nearby volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted leaving the city covered in ash essentially freezing the town until it’s rediscovery in 1599. All of the women working at the site gushed over the lovely bride Helen in ways only Italian mamms and nonnas do. It was quite amusing for the bride and groom. Giorgio is convinced that he is possibly the first photographer to take wedding portraits at this hitoric site since it seemed higly unusual to all the workers there...and was quite a farce...but it is a great story you can ask Giorgio to tell you all about when you come to meet him to talk about your destination wedding. He really is a miracle worker when it comes to making special moments like that happen!
