True love waits...

This was maybe one of the sweetest weddings I have ever photographed.  We so often see love as young and new, two people falling quickly and deeply and then getting married.  But really how romantic is it to have true love wait, isn't it just so lovely that a couple who has been in love for 25 years, who has lived together and who know every little thing about each other still be so totally enamoured that they decide to get married...in Italy.  That is vero amore...

I still remember asking Johanne when we first met to discuss her wedding how the two of them had managed to stay so happy for all these years, and she answered with a smile on her face "We have fun together".  And that they most definitely do, as I do not think I have photographed a wedding with more smiles and laughter than this one.

The two of them had the most intimate ceremony at Chiesa San Gennaro in Praiano, followed by a fantastic dinner & reception at the Hotel Tramonto d'oro.  This hotel holds a special place in my heart as it was where I too got married to the love of my life a few years earlier.  How fitting that they also decided on Praiano for their wedding as it was as sentimental to them as it was to me.  They had spent many vacations there earlier on in their relationship, and that little town by the sea holds many special & beautiful memories.

Their guests were all lifelong friends that had flown to the Amalfi Coast from all over.   They all sat at one long, beautiful table filled with flowers, champagne and candlelight.  There they reminsced, drank champagne, danced and most of all they laughed the night away.  It was such an emotional celebration, and I feel oh so honoured to have been a part of it...
