Who doesn’t love a good wedding!
They are right up there in terms of the best days to be had really.
So being at Jane and Alex’s wedding in Sorrento was truly wonderful – I wasn’t meant to be taking photographs because they had hired a great photographer (Amy) – I was a guest (Alex being my step-son).
…. But as Alex was getting dressed in our hotel room – and I had my camera with me it would have been rude not to take some shots of the groom and his best man, Carl getting ready to be honest!
And well.. if you know what I’m like you’ll understand that I pretty much wasn’t going to put the camera down again until the Prosecco and wine had finally kicked in! (Which it did by the way).
It was just a short walk from the hotel to the ceremony – and we did it a la Reservoir Dogs!
It was truly a wonderful day – a bit on the warm side (the flower girl took her dress off and ran around in her knickers and shoes for a while) – fortunately she was only 4 years old and it wasn’t during the actual ceremony!
From the moment Jane arrived with her father Rick…
To the bit where Alex saw his future bride for the first time…
And where Jane said “I do”…
To the family photo shots and throwing of flower petals….
It was all just too beautiful for words.
It all went off without a glitch – and once the legal bit was done in the beautiful setting of The San Francesco Cloisters we all headed off to The Villa Antiche Mura for an afternoon and evening of fun and festivities.
What a fantastic location for a wedding reception – The Bay of Naples – breath taking views.
Jane had thought of every little detail on the day – there were so many – here are just a few:-
The food was lovely and the wine was flowing …..
There were a lot of laughs…
And the speeches certainly hit the spot with everybody, but especially with the bride and her mother Marion.
And Rick managed to get through his speech without a tear (I think)
Jane looked absolutely beautiful!
And Alex was looking pretty good as a married man too!
And then the first dance – which was actually Jane and Rick (they had some kind of weird dance moves going on) – before Alex and Jane had their first dance … ooooo get a room you two!
And we all know they will live “Happily Ever After” …. Jane thought of that too!
