Intimate Italian wedding

Italian wedding in Santa Maria di Castellabate

A styled shoot amongst the olive groves with flowers in her hair.

 

This is my final instalment from the Secret Retreat in Italy.

When we drove up to this villa we were blown away.  It was like a film set; the drive in particular with the spectacular trees surrounded by olive groves.  Then we added the gorgeousness of Steph and Stef in there for the afternoon and it  just completed everything.

These pictures are bittersweet for me.  They remind me of the warm breezes, how Steph and Stef really cherish each other and finding moments of tranquillity in the midst of the shoot.
But they also remind me of the fact that this was our last shoot together which makes me reflective.  I laughed so much on this last day.  Don’t get me wrong, I laughed every day but this day I found myself giggling more and more over the smallest things.  

Overall they just remind me of the happiness and experience we’d shared over the previous few days.  I learned so much.  About photography, business and made not only an amazing network of supportive people but made friends too.  We had many many surprises over those few days, it was truly magical.  But that was the biggest surprise that I hadn’t bargained for was that I really learned about myself.  Things that I want to change and work on but mostly that you have the capability to really surprise yourself.  xx
