Rainy Elopement in Monterosso al Mare

15 April 2017

Among the millions of tourists who flock the Cinque Terre every year, a large part are couples in love who choose to celebrate their wedding here. The villages of the Riviera are among the most sought-after locations for weddings in the world, and a photographer could not be happier to work in such a lovely place.

From distant Australia, these two lovers chose to elope to Cinque Terre to get married. A couple of friends were their only witnesses. The wedding was celebrated on a terrace overlooking Monterosso al Mare, surrounded by green vineyards and mountains facing the sea. Unfortunately, the rain came upon us, but the bride and groom, super excited, hardly noticed it!

After the ceremony, it was a pleasure to guide them around and take their photos in the city centre. And while I was capturing spontaneous wedding photographs during a walk, the sun came back! Just in time for portraits with fabulous views in Vernazza.

There are so many beautiful spots for a  photographer in the Cinque Terre that I would never stop shooting. The trails, the colourful houses, the narrow streets and the stone steps, the porches and balconies full of flowers are just some of the many backgrounds. Had it been for me, this couple would have never returned home.

But time was running out! Just a few minute for a drink in the garden, and it was time to leave them alone for dinner. I’m sure they will not forget anytime soon their fabulous elopement in Liguria.
