Amalfi Coast, Ravello Wedding – Emi & John

Awarded Editors Choice


It’s practically impossible to describe Emi & John’s incredible wedding. Let’s rewind the clock a little and set an important stage for this beautiful journey.

Back, before I was a professional wedding photographer I met somebody who told me about the legendary ‘Amalfi Coast’. Dom explained that it’s one of the most beautiful places on earth and also the birthplace of his family. I googled and was hooked. So much so that the Amalfi Coast had become the only destination which I specifically wanted to visit and shoot a wedding in.

Many years later (late October 2015) I received an email from Emi & John, asking me to document their wedding – “by the way, it’s in the Amalfi Coast” it casually wrote…

I knew from our first Skype that this was going to be a spectacular adventure, with promises of stunning views and hard partying – I was on-board! The day was a blur of magic and romance. Every person I met was warm, inviting and totally uncompromisingly in the moment. I started the day by documenting the boys in Amalfi, followed by a run through the cobbled streets to join the girls at their hotel. The wedding itself was in Villa Eva, Ravello, a short 15 minute drive up rural snaking roads. Emi & John decided they wanted to meet up before the ceremony so I took John to a beautiful quiet street and we waited for Emi.

I’ll let the pictures tell the story from here on! 🙂

Emi & John. Thank-you for letting me be part of your journey. It was an honour and privilege to shoot, dance and drink with you (and thanks Lily & Jamie for setting this up).

Namaste my new friends.
