elisabeth & michele assisi | italy

booking a wedding like this one was like an absolute dream come true for me. ely & mic found me on instagram, and receiving their first email absolutely blew me away. i couldn’t believe that i had won the lottery not only in terms of the opportunity to shoot a wedding in my favourite country in the whole world, but being given that opportunity by complete strangers who knew nothing about me, except that they loved my work.

we met on skype, realized we were going to be fast friends, and after a good chat, they said those magic words: how do we go ahead and book?! (insert happy dance here)

skip ahead nearly a year, and dean and i arrived in perugia and were blown away by it’s beautiful history and gorgeous buildings – a lot of which you’ll see in the couple shoot i did with ely & mic the day before their wedding. and then, their wedding took place in assisi. famous for it’s breath taking cathedrals and cobblestone streets. it was a fairytale backdrop to a fairytale wedding.

we were treated like family from the moment we walked into mic’s home to start the wedding day. the hospitality of the italian people was like no other. their traditions were wonderful, and very different to a typical south african wedding. after a beautiful catholic ceremony in an ancient church in assisi, we were treated to a gorgeous long, lazy lunch with an abundance of incredible italian food (also my favourite), and really delicious italian wines, surrounded by foreigners with awesome stories. basically… we were in heaven.

ely & mic, we will forever be grateful for this opportunity, and are so happy that we got to get to know you two and become good friends. we can’t wait to host you in south africa (very soon), and holiday together in sardinia, sicily, capri or wherever this life takes us. sending you both so much love and happiness on this new adventure together as husband and wife. you make an incredible team, and we know you will forever be happy together. big love xxx
