A romantic and rustic wedding
The Cilento National Park is a place like no other for those who want a rustic wedding. Silke and Antonio are a young Italian-Dutch couple. Despite living in the Netherlands, she willingly agreed to celebrate the big day in Italy. The couple was looking for a wedding photographer in Cilento who would document the day with candid shots, focusing on the romance and the atmosphere of the day, as well as the beautiful landscape of Cilento.
The photos they had in mind were clear, they had to be romantic, simple and above all very natural. No posed or staged photo at all. After visiting my website, Antonio called me to make an appointment at the studio. He came alone because his fiancée was busy with her work in the Netherland. While chatting with him, I quickly realized that they were very demanding about photography, so we talked for a long time. Then, right after I showed him some of my latest works, he picked up his phone, called Silke and said I found him!.
I got to know her on the wedding day at a villa where she was getting ready. Although I usually recommend my clients a pre-wedding consultation, mostly to get a chance to connect and learn about each other, Silke felt just comfortable despite she never met me. She was kind and nice, so we both were at ease. The villa was large and luminous, and since there were many children, the atmosphere was filled with joy. Needless to say, children often create opportunities for meaningful photos at weddings. There was reason to be inspired, so I shot quite a lot.
Photographer in the nature of Cilento National Park
The ceremony took place in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, in Agropoli. After that, as they wanted some pictures that would show the natural beauty of Cilento, we went to Punta Licosa, one of the most spectacular places in the whole area. It is a jagged stretch of coast flanked by pine forests, wild and romantic at the same time.
The bride and groom didn’t feel uncomfortable in front of the camera, on the contrary, they were just natural and truly romantic. There was no need to suggest anything to take the photos, they were just perfect! Such kind of people are a pleasure to work with.
It was a truly rewarding experience. Also, the warm light of the late evening was spectacular and enhanced the already dramatic landscape. As a consequence of all that, I was able to document their wedding exactly the way they wanted.
The reception was held at Villa Sirio, a beautiful historical house from where you can see gorgeous sunsets all year round. Before going inside, I took a few more photos there to take advantage of the magnificent sunset.
