 DESTINATION WEDDING IN LAKE GARDA | LINEKE & JAMES

Lineke & James flew in from UK to have their destination wedding in Sirmione, Lake Garda. The Italian Lakes are so beautiful, a perfect destination to have a wedding or a small elopement. This was the first time we filmed a destination wedding at Lake Garda and we surely want to go back again in the future. Lineke & James had a small wedding, only with the closest of friends and family, which started off in the centre of old Sirmione, where the getting ready, ceremony and reception was held.

WEDDING IN SORRENTO, AMALFI COAST | TANYA & DANIEL

WEDDING IN SORRENTO, AMALFI COAST | TANYA & DANIEL

It was a beautiful week in Sorrento, Amalfi and I am happy to have spent it with Tanya + Daniel on their Italian getaway wedding. From Sorrento, to Capri and Positano, everywhere I went, it was like exploring a new world riddled with hidden secrets. The ceremony and reception took place at a hidden Villa Antiche Mura (same Antiche Mura as the Hotel in the centre of Sorrento, where the famous mill ruins are) and for the shooting we went off to the idilic Marina Grande. There was so much going on through the day that I could create 5 different films, each telling the same unique story – I just hope this video justifies the great time we had there.

Hope to see Amalfi Coast soon enough again, there are beautiful places hidden away  in Sorrento, Positano, Capri and Ravello that are yet to be explored.
And big thanks to Dragan Zlatanovic who rode beside me on this journey.

A short sneak peak of this beautiful Afrikaan – English elopement in Sirmione, Italy, before the video is finished. It’s not seaside at Lake Garda, but it feels the same with these two.

ALIONA & ANDREY | SKINNY LOVE | ELOPEMENT IN MOUNTAINS

Russian lemons, kites, picnic basket, ballons, dirty shoes and falling raindrops. This is what Aliona and Andrey wanted for their wedding day, who came all the way from Russia to Slovenia. Okay, maybe the rain was not something they wished for, but it certainly didn’t stop them from enjoying on their day with us. And what a great day it was.
