We Love Italy
There’s something about Italy. One of our first adventures there was in Lipari, and ever since, we’ve been hooked. The Cinque Terre wedding photographer guidebook – if there is one – was not on our radar when we first started doing weddings in 2009, but we wish it had been. We can’t believe what a paradise it is there, so experiencing it ourselves for Gaby and Matt’s wedding was surreal.
Gaby & Matt
In particular, we loved how it all began with Gaby and Matt. Like many inquiries we receive, it started with an email. In the email, they laid it all out in a to-the-point fashion which we loved.
We love the fact that your pictures are natural. – Gaby
So the location was set, they loved our style, so the stars aligned and we were en route to Italy for the celebration.
Set in the Golfo Dei Poeti on the cusp of Cinque Terre, Gaby and Matt combined a kaleidoscope of cultures into one magical destination wedding.
Gaby brought her Welsh heritage, and Matt the Scottish side. And, of course, Matt dressed appropriately in a kilt designed by MacGregor and MacDuff.
The day itself was fun filled with a lot of sun-drenched action in this Italian paradise. At the same time, Gaby and Matt respected traditions and as such hosted the ceremony in the ancient church of Chiesa di San Pietro. This was followed by a swift boat adventure to the reception in The Doria Park Hotel, a location where the evening allows the terrace to be bathed by the glow of lights of Lerici and it’s castle.

When we asked Gaby and Matt to describe their wedding afterwards, Emotional, Colorful and Magical were their words. Completely accurate in every way. This wedding had culture, views, great weather, and an incredible story all wrapped into one.
