Sorrento Pre-Wedding Shoot on the Amalfi Coast, Italy – Claire & Steve

As a Sorrento Wedding Photographer for destination weddings I jumped at the chance to be asked to capture Claire & Steve’s day in Italy.  Having known Claire for a few years now, from my days in the music industry, I was an honor when she asked me to photograph her wedding to Steve.  An old friend, the Amalfi Coast as backdrop and my bags packed I was off capturing another amazing destination wedding.

Sorrento Pre-Wedding Shoot on the Amalfi Coast, Italy – Claire & Steve

Sorrento is located on the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy.  It is a stunning location and one you really have to make the most of whilst there.  With that in mind Claire & Steve had booked in their sorrento pre-wedding shoot the day before their wedding.  Now I hear a few of you getting married cry out – ‘what the day before they get married?’  Normally I’d agree with you, but there is something special about a destination wedding that makes couples incredibly relaxed.  Throw in the warm Sorrento sun, a few days enjoying the relaxed italian way of life and it all of a sudden doesn’t seem quite so mad.  I hope you’ll enjoy the images of this couple as much as I enjoyed photographing them.  Here are a selection from the shoot.

The Grand Hotel Europa Palace – Sorrento

Our day started at the hotel Claire & Steve were staying at.  The four star Grand Hotel Europa Palace is right in the heart of Sorrento with views overlooking the Bay of Naples.  It is truly a grand hotel.  It has the most breathtaking views of the Bay and Marina. A rich decor and luxurious feel to the hotel to boot. It was easy to see why the couple had chosen this venue for their wedding reception.  One of my favourite things are the underground tunnels, and amazing views on your walk down from the hotel to the pool and marina.

Sorrento Town Centre

Looking for that authentic Italian feel we headed into the historic town centre of Sorrento.  Sorrento’s winding narrow streets are full of small boutique shops.  These are broken up with sporadic gardens and countless cafes, bars and restaurants.  In addition it has the most amazing architecture and buildings.  It is very romantic and has a real mediterranean feel to it.

St Francesco Cloister – Sorrento

Finally, their chosen wedding ceremony venue at the famous St Francesco Cloister, was our last stop. We certainly enjoyed the lush gardens, and shaded arches of this historic piece of paradise away from the hot Sorrento Sun.
