“The Mediterranean has the color of mackerel, changeable I mean. You don’t always know if it is green or violet, you can’t even say it’s blue, because the next moment the changing reflection has taken on a tint of rose or grey” Vincent Van Gogh.
We have met Erika and Martin one hour before their Wedding In Sorrento and what we remember most is the sunshine on their eyes and the relaxed smiling faces.
Sometimes people think that a wedding photographer is just a service you buy, not more. It is not true. To catch “the right moment” , the one full of emotion, it is very important to establish a connection and when you don’t know more than the names of the couple till the day of their wedding it is quite difficult.
Martin and Erika are as we have imagined them (and much more!): sunny, relaxed and in love more than ever! It is not surprising that they have chosen the romantic Sorrento coast to celebrate their eternal love.
The civil ceremony has been celebrated in San Francis Cloister , a magical place with a bougainvillea smell and a vine covered walls. It is one of the most ancient monuments in the center of the city particularly appreciated for its suggestive architecture ( it dates back in the 14 century). Now it is one of the best location to celebrate a civil ceremony or to listen a good classical music concert. Thanks to the wedding photo reportage in St Francis cloister you could see how deep and lovely has been this ceremony, If you make attention you could also heard the classical guitar playing a sweet music…
Erika has been a special and proud bride. The heels did not stop her through the winding road to “Marina Piccola” the ancient port of the city where we absolutely wanted to catch the unforgettable sea suns. It was worth it!
The sky has been beautiful and we have been so lucky to find a lively atmosphere full of people and interesting situations that are always welcome when you belong to wedding street photographers.
I don’t know dear Martin and Erika if you know where the name “Sorrento” come from. A legend tells that in ancient times in this village that overlooks the sea lived the prettiest young girl of ever, Sirentum. Also the mermaid that lived in the seaside loved the unique creature she was. She met a prince and they got married in a short time. They were a traveller couple always generous and sweet to people. Unfortunately when the Saracens arrived Sirentum was one of the first prisoners. The inhabitants try to gave all the property just to have back the princess. And so it was. Since that event people thinks that all the lovers married in Sorrento will be always protected by the energy of this young girl that even after a hard knocks could finally come back to her beloved man.
Thank you Erika and Martin, may every day hold wonderful shared experiences!
