Villa Eliana, Sorrento destination wedding photography – Sarah & Brett.

Sarah & Brett tied the knot in Sorrento at the end of May and invited me to capture their destination wedding. We arrived on the Thursday morning before the wedding on Saturday and immediately fell in love with this gorgeous town in the south west of Italy. With gorgeous views from the cliffs, a pretty marina where you can watch the sunset on the beach and a lively town center, Sorrento has everything to offer.


Sarah & Brett’s civil ceremony took place at the Museo Correale di Terranova in Sorrento and afterwards they jumped in their vintage VW Beetle to make their way to Villa Eliana for the reception. Arriving in style, they made an entrance while being serenaded by their very own Mandolin & Guitar duo – very Italian!


Set atop the rolling hills of Sorrento, Villa Eliana is a dream wedding venue, boasting incredible views all the way to Capri. It is one of the best spots around if you enjoy magnificent sunsets while sipping cocktails poolside, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t enjoy sunsets & cocktails!? Villa Eliana was the ideal location for Sarah & Brett’s very relaxed wedding reception and with gorgeous weather, most of the reception took place outdoors.


After dinner guests were treated to a shot of locally sourced Limoncello – a post-meal tradition in Italy and definitely the best way to open the dance floor!


Sarah & Brett, thank you for taking me on your Italian adventure with you. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!


A big thank you to my second shooter and Italian driver Wayne, it just wouldn’t be the same without you…

Brett designed their gorgeous wedding stationery himself. Loved the colour scheme.

Kudos to Wayne who grabbed this epic photo with the musicians and DJ from the other side of the pool!
