I was asked ages ago by friend and fellow Wedding Photographer David, if I would be interested in flying out to Sorrento in Italy and covering an Irish wedding with him….difficult decision, huh? We flew out last weekend and having left a sullen-looking London behind at a measly 8 degrees, we were delighted to hear upon landing at Naples that the local weather was 24 degrees and sunny! Friday afternoon was our recce for the wedding in the beautiful village of Positano and afterwards we sat eating pizza by the beach and reflected on how we could get used to the Mediterranean way of life! Saturday arrived and the day of the wedding between Bairbre and Gerard. I was asked by David firstly to concentrate on all the local details, loads of which you will see here. I don’t normally ‘do’ landscapes, but iI was inspired by the local scenery – and yes, the man waving madly at the camera in the first image is David. Part Two of this fantastic wedding to follow!
This was the view down to the church in Positano from the hotel where Bairbre was getting ready
These strange heads were dotted about all over the hotel and the grounds – I loved the fact that every one was different and had been lovingly brought to life with clothes and jewellery etc! The male one was even wearing a tie – the best thing was, no blinking!
