My Brother Ben is Awesome (obviously I would think that) So when I heard he was marrying the love of his life I was SO happy for him, and then when I heard it was going to be a South Italian Wedding I knew I had to shoot on their day! Although I have just got home from the wedding of the year, and although half asleep I just HAD to post some pictures of Ben and Elisa’s beautiful wedding day.
Last year I was lucky enough to go on holiday with Ben and Elisa to Ceglie Messipica, Italy – Where Elisa’s family are from and was absolutely spoilt with tours around the region of Puglia and yummy home cooked food from her relatives – and I was let in on the big secret of where they were getting married eeep! They were married at the Cookery School in Ceglie by a family friend who lives over the road from Elisas family home, and had their reception at the Masseria Traetta – A truly stunning venue.
I started off the day photographing Ben in the early morning heat – (which was hilarious with much face pulling!) and then visited Elisa for her bridal preparations. When it came time to go Uncle Pep was dropping me off on ‘Italian Time’ so it was all rush to get the boys their buttonholes and everyone in and ready for the arrival of the bride. Ben had a look on his face I will never forget, and when seeing Elisa it was so emotional – but after the ceremony the pressure was lifted and the party began!
This was my first destination wedding and I would love to shoot yours – get in touch to discuss your wedding day!
I wish my Brother and new Sister in law all of the happiness in the world – I could not be happier, I feel so honoured to have you in my life.
