I actually shot this wedding on Valentine’s Day, 2010. I was asked to second shoot for Jerry Ghionis, multi-award winning photographer from Melbourne, Australia, which was very exciting. The wedding did not dissapoint. We were there for a few days with some parties to shoot, as well as the wedding and, for Jerry, a pre wedding shoot at the Vatican! The day I arrived I decided to go out for a meal by myself and found a cheeky little bistro … armed with my phrase book, I managed to learn a few phrases and fell in love with my waiter (he was about 85 and just adorable … he LOVED that I attempted Italian, no matter how rubbish !)
The wedding had everything from a dress by Oscar de la Renta (he actually made it himself and sent a dresser to make sure the dress was ok for the whole day), Jimmy Choos, diamonds to die for, Rome (enough said), cool people, amazing locations, a custom Cartier tank watch, ballerinas and a truly lovely couple. For those of you on the ICE Society (Jerry’s educational site) please check out the videos and some of Jerry’s images from the wedding. And some of mine too !
And so, a few of my personal faves from the wedding … please feel free to leave any comments … enjoy !
