Wedding on the Amalfi Coast, September 9 2016.

On September 9 it was a rainy day in late summer.
As luck would have it the rain stopped, when we met Kay and Edmond, a young couple  from Hong Kong.
We spent the rest of the afternoon with them, going around the Amalfi Coast, from Ravello to Atrani to Amalfi.  It is difficult to describe how magical the sky was that late summer day.

The following day they celebrated their wedding.
Chinese tradition has it that the groom goes to meet his bride, but before he can see her, he has to pass through several doors. At each of these doors he is asked a question to which the groom must be able to answer.
Edmond had to knock three times on the last door  before finally reaching  a very emotional Kay.
With infinite tenderness, these two young newlyweds exchanged thoughts of love written in pen on paper, allowing us to photograph a moment so intimate and moving.

Then the families gathered in the cozy little church of Santa Maria in Gradillo, where the celebration took place.
After the toast, and the exchange of greetings in the square in Ravello, we were granted a few more “photographic” moments at the lovely Villa Rufolo.

Finally we said goodbye to the couple and their families at the elegant Palazzo Avino,  which was once a private villa of the twelfth century but opened as a luxury hotel in 1997. Like many other buildings built at San Giovanni del Toro, originally known as Palazzo Sasso, this elegant structure was part of the aristocratic quarter of Ravello in the period of the Middle Ages and then Renaissance. Completely renovated in 1997 and opened as a Palazzo Avino in early 2013, this location reflects the passion, beauty and the dream of a great Italian love story.
