Known as one of the most charming locations on the Amalfi Coast, Relais Blu is the perfect venue for a mediterranean wedding by the sea. For Rebecca and Jansen, two sweethearts from the US, there was no questioning the location’s beauty, and this Capri view boutique hotel near by Sorrento was the ideal place for their big day. Settled in the most western points of the Amalfi Coast and the Sorrentine Peninsula, the hotel is away from hustle and bustle of tourists.
Strong but positive emotions were in full flow throughout the day, with Rebecca and Jansen so clearly head over heels in love with each other. The ceremony itself took place in Relais Blu’s stunning lemon garden. Overflowing with wonderful colours, lots of greenery and topped off with a handcrafted covered over area – almost like a rustic ‘marquee’ – where guests could sit, relax and share the couples’ exchanging of vows, it was a stunning setting for a outdoor wedding ceremony with a sea view. The colourful backdrop, Capri can be seen in the distance, and characterful guests added to the vibrancy of the wedding photography.
The wedding flowers had a rustic but luxurious feel. The bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets were truly unique, and the photographs of the table were made even more special by the extravagant table centrepiece running down the middle of the table from one end to the other, meaning that every guest seated at the table could enjoy the gorgeous floral scents and stunning floristry.
Rebecca’s backless dress, designed by Maggie Sottero, was so beautiful, with a lace bodice but long, flowing trail and a delicate veil to match. The theme of stunning flowers continued through to Rebecca’s hair. It was adorned with pastel-coloured roses, which matched perfectly with Jansen’s floral button hole too.
Guests were treated to the most delectable menu that was embellished with a floral sprig. The couple had clearly thought about absolutely everything to make their day truly special and luxurious. They also had the help of Happy Brides wedding planners, who are Sorrento-based and totally in love with the Amalfi Coast, so they really know a thing or two about the area’s wedding venues, food, weather and views.
We were delighted to take photographs of Rebecca and Jansen at the nearby village of Termini. This rural location, boasting characterful buildings, ceramic shops, cobbled streets and topped off with a Vespa, was the ideal place to take couples photos. It was so fun, energised and utterly romantic.
Making the most of the Capri backdrop, we captured some beautiful late evening shots of Rebecca and Jansen at the infinity pool as the sun was setting behind the soft waves of the sea. The warm, dimmed sunlight cast stunning shadows across the location and created a romantic atmosphere. It highlighted the glistening infinity pool and the pretty trees swaying in the gentle breeze, but most importantly shone on the beautiful couple who were so emotional and excited to share the rest of their lives together.
This luxury wedding was embellished with scented flowers, vibrant colours and a fantastic group of guests. We felt so privileged to be part of Rebecca and Jansen’s truly wonderful wedding day in Sorrento.
