Apulia Wedding Photographer – Salento – Puglia
“Look into my eyes, you will see, what you mean to me…”
I was very happy to be chosen as Apulia wedding photographer by Lucia and Jacopo in the amazing Salento setting, exactly in Gallipoli.
This beautiful couple and their lovely daughters shared with me some incredible emotions that I tried to capture in every picture!
Lucia, on her special day, wore a beautiful dress by Iris Noble and wedding shoes by Stuart Weitzman. Jacopo, instead, chose a stylish tailoring dress by Sartoria Rossi and white Converse, as very original wedding shoes to share also with his witnesses! This is a very nice detail for someone like me who loves Converse!
The civil ceremony and the wedding reception to welcome their friends and relatives was held in the wonderful setting offered by Cotriero, Punta Pizzo.
This live pub is really a lovely and unusual place to celebrate a wedding. Born in 1998, the restaurant during the day is a beach resort and it harmonizes perfectly to the area, surrounded by a rocky and fragrant beach, thanks to the presence of various Mediterranean plants such as rosemary, thyme and wild myrtle.
This site offers also some additional historical value. Vernole, a local historian, said that the Greek king Pyrrhus, in contrast to the version of Plutarch that relates of a shipwreck, landed in this place in search of a safe harbor: this is really a good omen for a wedding couple seeking a safe harbor in each other’s arms!
This wedding was really an amazing concentration of very powerful emotions: the charming location, the super romantic details all around, the feeling of love and involvement of this wonderful couple, the joy of their friends all around, the sweetness and boundless beauty of their little girls, and then people dancing under the stars, hair and faces touched by the sea breeze … what can I say…
I just close my eyes to re-experience every moment but if I look back at the photos of that special day, I still feel there, in the midst of their warm embrace, so strong was the empathy that we created!
Thanks again to Lucia and Jacopo for choosing me as their wedding photographer in the magnificent Salento, in Apulia, and thanks for their availability to be remembered in my blog.
Thanks to Sergio Sorrentino for helping me to photograph this beautiful wedding in Apulia.
