Italy Wedding – Destination Boccadasse Wedding in Genova, Italy {Val & George}

Destination Wedding Genova Boccadasse

 

 

Italian Destination Wedding Photographer

Val (Valeria) is Italian, but lives in Brighton with British George. However, they decided to have their wedding in Italy (heck yes! Who wouldn’t?) at a church in the gorgeous seaside fisherman’s village of Boccadasse in Genova, followed by an outdoor backyard reception at Val’s grandparents’ house in the hills. And it was all so beautiful!

The day was HOT – like Raiders of the Lost Ark melt your face off hot – but everybody valiantly didn’t melt (yay for fans!) during the service, which was followed by drinks on the beachfront and some epic climbing for Val and George – and me! – to get up to the oceanview spots for photos. Then off to the reception, where thankfully it was cooler! The garden looked magical with strings of lanterns and fairylights (I adore fairylights), and the food, in typical Italian fashion, was delicious and excessive – yum!

There was also some awesome dancing. You’ll see at the end. Boy do I love it when people enjoy the dancing!

The speeches were one of my favourite parts. Because Val had lots of friends and family who don’t speak English, George made his Groom’s speech bilingual, and pulled off some amazing Italian (caveat: I don’t speak Italian but it sounded amazing to me!) in the bits where he thanked Val’s parents and family, and talked about why he loved her. I was so impressed, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. These two love each other so much, and were so excited to be getting married and spend the day with all their loved ones.

Wedding {Kate and JP}

Kate and JP’s wedding was the second of my three South African weddings, and it was, true to the fantastic clients I have, an absolute blast. I don’t think Kate stopped laughing the entire day, let alone smiling. They got married at St Peter’s, right opposite Zoo Lake, and we did their couple shoot in a park in Parkview. I had them on the swings, the see-saw, the merry-go-round…I don’t think the day could have been more fun!

I also call this day “The return of the cousins” – Kate, you see, is the cousin of Craig (of Jade and Craig, whose wedding I shot in January 2010), AND Cathy (of Cathy and Sean, from December 2010)! I’m just working my way through the family. 🙂 I had an amazing time at both those weddings, and this one didn’t disappoint – clearly, this is one awesome family! I’m glad I nabbed them.

One of Kate’s bridesmaids made these shoes for her to wear at the reception!

Snacks for the guests to have on their way to the reception, which was a good hour’s drive in traffic.

Perfume is sooo tedious.

The perfume leap! Kate decided to spray her dress with perfume, and since it was hanging in the rafters, she just jumped.

Coolest thing ever. This is so my kind of crowd. I might have squealed and clapped my hands a bit.

Look, it’s Jade & Craig! The sign they are holding reads “Thanks for the idea, Craig & Jade”, and it was in the cheese wheel cake everyone snacked on while they waited for us. Craig and Jade did the same thing at their wedding!
