A stunning wedding in Bordighera in front of the sea
This was not just a wonderful wedding in Liguria, Italy. This was a fantastic destination
wedding because it was the union of two families so far in geography, culture, and language, yet so united in love.
Petra and Filippo were the most colorful bride and groom I’ve ever had: as early as the day before the wedding in Bordighera, we decided to take an engagement shooting while we knew Bordighera better. I must say it many times: Bordighera is a charming little town, with which I fell in love at first sight. It is the childhood village of Filippo, to whom he is very fond. He showed us the Garnier Botanical Garden, an oasis of delicacy and peace in which to dive, and a peaceful place to take a wonderful shooting couple.
He showed us his favorite places, while he did not take his eyes off Petra for a second. All that love, that delicacy, they have put them in the organization and in the realization of an intimate and perfect marriage.
Together with friends and relatives from all over the world, they have created a climate of affection and perfect complicity, in which every toast has sealed a moment of real emotion. It was absolutely easy to make a wedding day picture with them, surrounded by all their family.
The preparation of the bride together with the mother and sisters, the groom’s preparation together with old friends, and that walk from the villa to the church: this is the advantage to get married in Liguria or in any fantastic Venues in Liguria, you can reach any location on foot!
Another advantage of a wedding in Bordighera is that no car was used throughout the day, not even for the very wedding photoshoot: from the main church, we walked down to the beautiful historical park of the town, The Winter Garden, up to the characteristic restaurant that welcomed us, La Reserve. And as you can see from the wedding photo reportage, the part I preferred was to shoot their portraits from the cliffs, with a wonderful sunset behind them.
This amazing place is called “Marabutto” and is want of the most ancient places in Bordighera. As an artistic wedding photographer, I was completely kidnapped by the marvelous maritime landscape, like the bride and the groom too: we were enraptured. Yes, that place is the perfect choice for a Liguria destination wedding, thanks Bordighera, I really really loved you.
