Wedding in South Tyrol – Esi and Dorian

We came back last week from shooting in South Tyrol, so I couldn’t help but think back to Esi and Dorian’s beautiful wedding last year. Their wedding day was the most perfect you can imagine – gloriously sunny and hot, with mountain views as far as you could see, and a radiant couple who really made the most of their day. I’m not sure I have ever seen anybody party as exuberantly as these two. Sit back and enjoy! xxT

A Wedding in Sicily, Five Years Ago - Sarah and Ken

Sara and Ken got married an incredible five years ago, in a lovely little hamlet on the beautiful island of Sicily, and we were lucky enough to be their photographers. We had photographed half a dozen other weddings, some for friends and some for paying customers (and often, a mix of the two). In retrospect, I’m forever grateful that they trusted these young Austrian photographers to fly into Palermo, navigate through the crazy Sicilian traffic, and capture their big day.

We had a fantastic day on that 10th of May 2008, mostly because Sara and Ken were truly having the time of their lives. They enjoyed every bit of it, from the lunch with friends and family, through the getting ready and the ceremony, right into the middle of the night when everybody kicked off their shoes and danced the night away.

We’re thrilled to see Sara and Ken again on the occasion of the wedding of Ken’s little brother, coming up in little more than three weeks in Monaco. Happy fifth anniversary, Sara and Ken, many happy returns!

Zana and Jason - Wedding in Duino, Italy

Trieste and its surrounding region holds a special place in my heart and mind. My father´s family - up to my grandfather - is from Trieste, and as a child I used to spend a few weeks every summer there, in the dusty old apartment in the middle of the old town, just a few steps from the Piazza Unità. This apartment, filled with old furniture and full of treasures - a collection of old keys, say, or old letters found in some drawer -  was my very own kingdom and favourite playground.

I also, of course, remember the awe in front of beautiful Castello Miramare, and the trips to the seaside at Sistiana with my already very old grandmother, where we would spend the day snorkeling, eating watermelon, and learning card games from my grandmother.

No wonder, then, that I was absolutely delighted when Zana contacted me and asked me whether we would photograph her wedding, just half an hour from Trieste, at the beautiful Castello di Duino. Not only did I get to revisit Trieste and see how it has changed - and how much of its magic is still, in fact, intact; but Daniel and I also had the chance to get to know Zana and Jason, their families and friends, and to be a part of their beautiful celebration.

Zana started the day getting ready at the Hotel Savoia in the old town of Trieste, and we even had time to do a lovely bridal session in the morning. (You can find more of these pictures in this blogpost). For a few consecutive days before the wedding, it had rained, and so in the morning, the skies and the sea were clean and bright and brandnew.

Zana and Jason, it was a real joy to get to share this day with you, and to be a witness to your vows and celebration! We´re already looking forward to being a part of your vow renewal as well some day!

Joanna and Erik - Wedding in Perugia, Italy

Joanna and Erik got married in the beautiful Castello di Monterone in Perugia, in July last year. It must have been one of the hottest days of the year, but that certainly didn´t dampen the spirits of the two, or of any of their guests who had flown in from the UK, Norway, Canada and the U.S.!

The ceremony was held on a platform overlooking the valley, and combined traditions from Jo´s Jewish and Erik´s Catholic background, which made for a very special and moving celebration. They also read vows to each other that they had written themselves, and their friends read texts from sources as different as Walt Whitman´s poetry and "When Harry Met Sally". The loud and joyous "Mazel Tov" from all the guests together ended the ceremony - and ever since I think every wedding should include this!

The party in the evening was one of the most joyful we´ve ever been present at, and I think there was NOBODY - old, young, man, woman - who didn´t join in the dance! Part of this was certainly thanks to the wonderful band, the Jake Goss Quartet from London - they played the finest jazz during the ceremony and at the reception, and in the evening helped filled the dancefloor in seconds with Klezmer Music (which they told us is usually not really in their repertoire!)
What a great day, thanks Joanna and Erik for having us!

Zana´s Bridal Portraits in the Savoia Hotel, Trieste

I was both amazed and very happy when Zana announced on the morning of her wedding that we actually had time for Bridal Portraits! I´m really used to making these in the five minutes before we all have to leave for church, so it was such a treat to have some time to experiment, and Zana was such a fabulous model! Apart from looking gorgeous, she was also completely relaxed and enjoyed playing around as much as I did. Thanks Zana!

Anouk and Martin - Wedding in the Sextantio Albergo Diffuso

Anouk and Martin live in Amsterdam, but they decided to get married far away from home: in the enchanting village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio, in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The small and almost forgotten hilltown near L´Aquila rose to fame when Daniele Kihlgren, an Italian-Swedish entrepreneur, bought the abandoned houses, painstakingly restored them, and made them an “Albergo Diffuso” – literally translated, a “spread-out inn”. The hotel rooms are situated in the old houses with their medieval walls, while the reception is housed in what used to be a barn.  

With the help of Eva and Clara from Chicweddings, who organised the wedding, Anouk and Martin were able to host an unforgettable celebration for their families and closest friends. As the church they had designated for their vows, had been destabilized by a recent earthquake in the region, they opted to take their vows out-of-doors, in the tree-lined pathway leading up to the church. For the reception, the two and their guests enjoyed Italian appetizers in the last rays of sunlight, and for dinner, a several-course menu was served in another converted medieval townhouse. A truly relaxed and splendid day – thanks, Anouk and Martin, for having us! 

This wedding was featured in the Belgian wedding magazine Witweddings, as well as on Grey Likes Weddings and Elizabeth Anne Designs
