Wedding at the Cloisters de San Francesco in Sorrento

Bride and Groom on their wedding day in Sorrento Italy

The town is located on the Amalfi coast’s western tip and a short drive from Pompeii and Positano. For some time, tourism has been prevalent since the poet Byron inspired a long list of literary geniuses who came here for their holidays, including Tolstoy, Goethe and Dickens. But the romance continues as you take a stroll through the vibrant town to take in the palatial hotels, busy marquetry shops and the finest Italian cuisine washed down with a healthy glass of limoncello!

When Nick and Sarah got in touch to ask me to photograph their wedding at the picturesque Cloisters de San Francesco, a beautiful 14th-century monastery in the heart of Sorrento, I was very excited and, of course, happy to oblige! Their ceremony took place in the tranquil courtyard lined with beautiful flowers luscious greenery. There are so many idyllic locations both there and in the surrounding areas, so after the couple exchanged their vows, we took a stroll along the coast to take in the breathtaking scenery.

Driving and parking can be a real challenge in the bustling town of Sorrento, so I instead hitched a ride on the back of the wedding planner’s scooter in true Italian fashion! Luckily I survived. We travelled along the coast (stopping off along the way for some obligatory photographs!) until we arrived at the stunning Hotel Maravi in Don Pedro for the evening reception.

It was a fantastic day and an amazing trip all around, and I’m very grateful to Nick and Sarah for having me along to photograph their wedding at the Cloisters de San Francesco in Sorrento.

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work. We are really excited to see all of the photos, which we are sure will be beautiful. We hope you enjoyed the day and have a nice time in Sorrento. Speak to you soon, and thanks again, Mr and Mrs Boxall!”
