This is the perfect example of why I love wedding cinematography. The reason I stress to every single person I know that it’s one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. Because this film? This beautiful behind-the-scenes look at the day captured by Les Amis Photo? It’s mesmerizing. And it’s moment after moment of a pure joy and love that will warm every last inch of your heart. Oh, and the Father of the Bride’s speech? Seriously amazing. Grab those tissues, press play and enjoy.
From Les Amis Photo… What happens when an Irish couple gets married in Italy? They have a lot of fun.
They love Oneglia, a city in Liguria Coast, and they decided to get married there. The atmosphere was relaxed and very funny. The style was a mix of elegance and shabby chic details with blue as the primary colour. The venue was a particular villa because it was the house of a clown.
The tables were named like Italian sites, and the decoration was rustic but romantic, with candles and low lights. The was a first dance under the rain, and the dancing party was improvised under the arches. The bride dress was very chic and the groom dress was of a deep blue.

When you combine Tuscany and a wedding planned by two people who just so happen to plan weddings, Il Cerimoniere Italian Weddings, you can basically guarantee you are about to see some serious magic happen. And one look at the images from Sarah Falugo and you’ll know, that’s precisely the case. Le Campacce set the most gorgeous of scenes for the most gorgeous of days, and it all unfolds in a gorgeous fashion right here.
From Sarah Falugo… It was a really fun event in Sant’ Ellero, Tuscany in June 2012. The bride and groom, Eleonora and Samuele, are wedding planners themselves, Il Cerimoniere. They hired a private villa and after a beautiful church ceremony they returned for sunset drinks, a photo shoot and a five course outdoor meal with fun antics and a great party!
