Hotel Bristol Wedding Photographer and Videographer
Jeremy Taylor once wrote “love is friendship set on fire”, and that special fire, we add, makes for great weddings, especially because it reminds us of the sun that kisses the south of Italy. In an era where destination weddings are all the rage, Giulio and Jenny decided to add a little twist.
The groom is local: born and bred in Giffoni Sei Casali, he embodies the authentic southern man that values family and kindness above all, while Jenny is a sweet Swedish girl with a warm smile and a strong bond with our country, so it was only natural that they would choose Italy for their big day. Where, you ask? Well, Vietri sul Mare, of course!
Known by its nickname “the first pearl of the Amalfi Coast”, Vietri is a town with an incredible history that spans over the centuries, and natural beauties made of vivid colours and breathtaking views.
There is another notable things about the comune in the province of Salerno: together with the Coast, it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It goes without saying that there was no other place for the couple!
As per tradition, they got prepared separately. He went home, in Giffoni Sei Casali, to his family home. Giulio’s mother helped him with the last details of the very special suit he chose: his father’s. A vintage black suit with a light grey vest and necktie. When his family and friends saw him, they could not believe their eyes. It looked like it was made just for him. A beautiful reminder of how much Giulio resembles and reminds them of his beloved father.
Jenny got prepped in a suite at Hotel Bristol in Vietri. She wore a delicate white dress with a long gown that exalted her light blue eyes and beautiful smile. White flowers on a laurel wreath in her blond hair, a multicoloured bouquet in her hands and she was ready for her groom.
The bridesmaids, all dressed in light pink, could barely contain themselves at the sight.
They got married in a church in Vietri, next to the piazzetta, with a view of the sea. As she walked down the aisle, Giulio could not break his gaze as he held his mother’s hand. The ceremony was held in two languages, a true embrace of cultures: Jenny’s loved ones came all the way from Sweden to celebrate her union with Giulio and give them all their support. Bride and groom kissed for the first time as a new family after the vows, and then walked hand in hand towards their families and friends.
Then, it was time to party!
Back at the Hotel Bristol: the four-star building is really an amazing location for weddings, with a view straight out of a postcard that overlooks the sea and the Scogli di Marina di Vietri. The guests were entertained by games, Lego sets (yes, Lego!) and live music – and an Elvis impersonator – giving the celebrations an international flavour and a unique atmosphere. Atmosphere that the Italian wedding photographers and filmmakers of Studio D’Essai managed to capture in all its authenticity. In the spectacular garden, Jenny and Giulio sat down at a smaller table surrounded by the others, and enjoyed the excellent southern cuisine before unleashing their wild side under the stars, dancing together, with their mothers, best men and bridesmaids.
Afterwards, husband and wife cut the giant white cake decorated with white and pink flowers and ate the first bite together. Another small tradition, another small step towards infinite happiness.
Their friendship ignited their love, and that love will light up the sky for years to come.
