Santa Maria Seaside Boho Elopement Italy
How fabulous was this shoot on a workshop, led by the fablous Claire Penn, in Santa Maria di Castellabate during the Secret Retreat workshop
A loved up Italian couple, wow what chemistry Luigi and Antonia! …well they were married just a few days ago for real, it really shine through these images.
We were priviledged to be given access to the normally off limits summer palace and villa Sirena, by island of Licosia, belonging to the Prince and Princess of Belmonte.
Antonia’s dress is a genuine vintage 1960s Mexican wedding dress purchased from Etsy, perfectly complimeted by a feather headress and feather details in her barefoot sandals.
Luigi or Lu as he is know is local lead singer in a band. His styling was simple, his own clothes accesorised with a mustard bow tie, love those braces too!
The picture perfect picnic by the sea was masterminded by the uber talented Mandy Beck of Saddleworth Shindigs. She has a wealth of goodies in her aladdins cave treasure trove and squirreled some away for this shoot. The ceremony arbour hung in the trees was decorated with lace ribbons, feathers and hand made dreamcatchers. Mandy is so super talented.
A perfect laid back boho wedding elopement and picnic reception by the sea, doesn’t get more chilled out and idyllic than this!
An evening party ensued with good friends at the Azurro Lido on the beach, with music from Lu himself and lots of dancing…oh and fireworks on the beach, outstanding!
Hope you enjoy these images!
