NATALIA & AREK | ITALY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
INTIMATE WEDDING IN CINQUE TERRE, ITALY
I had the pleasure to travel to the magic Cinque Terre in Italy for the wedding of Natalia and Arek.
Cinque Terre is a string of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. In each of the small villages, colorful houses and vineyards cling to steep terraces, harbors are filled with fishing boats and trattorias turn out seafood specialties along with the Liguria region’s famous sauce, pesto.
Let me introduce you to Natalia and Arek – two wonderful people who knew each other from a very long time before they finally become a couple. Who knows, maybe it’s the influence of Arek’s rock drumming skills at some point made Natalia fall in love with him? Currently the three of them (oh yes, I completely forgot about the amazing dog they own!), are living in a lovely seaside polish town.
It was truly an honour to accompany them on their magical travel to Italy as their personal wedding photographer (always prepared to capture beautiful moments). Our destination for wedding photoshoot? Magnificent Cinque Terre, which can be described as a picturesque string of century-old coastal villages on the coast of the Italian Riviera! Each of the village is known for instagram-famous colorful buildings, amazing vineyards and crowded harbours filled with fishing boats. Oh, and the amazing smell of freshly prepared seafood everywhere! If you’re planning to visit this area, you should definitely try famous Ligurian pesto! As I already mentioned, it’s truly a unique place and I’m not surprised Natalia and Arek decided to say sacramental “yes” to each other right there. I have to admit, that just the idea of this collaboration filled me with joy from the very beginning – not everyday you get to plan a wedding photography in such a wonderful location!
Wedding ceremonies took place in the company of their closest family and friends from all over the world that joined newlyweds in this lovely part of Italy. It all started in a truly magnificent chapel located on a cliff: Cappella della Madonnina della Punta. As you can see on the pictures below, thanks to the picturesque surroundings we were able to create an intimate atmosphere. Shooting wedding photos in such conditions was truly an amazing experience! Pictures from the wedding party were taken in agritourism center “Il Poderetto” in the nearby town of Pontebosio.
After the wedding:
Natalia and Arek spent a few days in the Cinque Terre, enjoying everyday views and tasting amazing dishes of italian cuisine. Along with my friend Pedro, who is the drone operator, I had the pleasure to accompany them during this wonderful time. Together we explored a bit the beautiful riviera, capturing not only magnificent landscapes, but most of all – the relationship of two inspiring people! Once again, I would like to send a big virtual THANK YOU to these amazing couple for the excellent cooperation and given trust. I have spent a few magical days, not only as a wedding photographer, but also as a witness of the most important moments of their life.
