In September, we got the opportunity to travel to Ravello for Kirstyn and Adam’s wedding at Villa Eva. As the groom and his groomsmen were getting ready at Palazzo Avino, the bride prepared at Villa Eva. The elegant outdoor ceremony was held on the terrace and not an eye was dry as the couple said I do.
Ravello is a dream location. It’s a tiny town that you easily can walk around in no time. No wonder numerous couples choose Ravello for their destination wedding in Italy. We are stoked to be heading back there for 3 weddings this year and next week we are on route back to Ravello and a wedding at Belmondo Caruso. Can’t wait!
This wedding was held at Villa Eva, a grand old Italian villa that has been restored with care in the original style. Being exclusive for one wedding or event at the time, you get to have the place all to yourself. Located just next to the historical center of Ravello, Villa Eva is a gem sheltered within a large garden with hundred-year-old trees. Being one of the highest points of Ravello you can enjoy a glorious view of everything below.
We feel privileged to have had our client’s exquisite and heartfelt weddings and our commercial work featured in a number of national and international online & printed publications. We’re grateful to the team of creatives and the hard work that helped us land there. This wedding was brilliantly enough featured on the fabulous wedding blog Magnolia Rogue.
Congratulations to Kirstyn and Adam who is the delightful couple you can ever imagine and we’re thankful we got to be a small part of their big celebration. It all came together so beautifully thanks to the team of wedding professionals working together.
I February we traveled to Spain teach a master class at The Rural Workshop. It was honestly one of the highlights this year so far! The workshop runs over 4 days and is packed with insanely talented photographers and videographers from all over the world teaching and it takes place outside of Barcelona in Santa Susanna, at a place called Bon Repos. It’s a cute camping village next to the sea and everyone stays together in comfortable beach bungalows. Also, every morning you get to wake up to the most beautiful view of the ocean. Dreamy, to say the least! Presentations, master classes, and practical shooting go on from early morning until late in the night and you get to learn from some of the best within our industry. For the practical shoots, Rural workshop pulled together the best of the best in Spain to make sure the stylized sets looked and felt luxurious, exclusive and so much fun to photograph. To have the opportunity to get to know photographers, wedding planners and floral designers we have admired from afar is honestly priceless to us so we loved becoming a part of the Rural Workshop Family.
For two days we taught a master class with hands-on shooting at the most awesome venue; The Hotel Can Mora de Dalt, a country house from the XV century which opened as a hotel in summer of 2008. Owned by the same family for 18 generations it is surrounded by olive groves and naturally, has a stunning view.
We had a fantastic time and all thanks to the organizers; Cristina and Roberto, translators, thank you, Michael, presenters and all of the attendants. If given the chance, we would do it again in a heartbeat!! If you are a wedding photographer or videographer and haven’t yet visited The Rural Workshop, we strongly urge you to do so. It’s a week filled with absolute magic, loads of learning. networking, great presenters and above all; Roberto & Cristina pours so much love into this workshop and really goes out of their way to make everyone feel welcome, inspired & learning tons of useful stuff (AND they make sure everybody enjoys the ride!)

Therese & Daniel’s wedding at Beckershof Country Estate is something I’ll never forget. Especially their emotional wedding ceremony which was held on the small headland beside the lake. I love how they involved their two beautiful daughters who performed a song that made literally everyone cry, myself included.
Therese & Daniel’s proposal story is like a romance novel. What girl wouldn’t want her fiancé to go all in when he asks the girl of his dreams to marry him! Read on below to get the full story!
From the Bride:
“On my birthday in October of 2014, we had our families over for brunch. After awhile Daniel says that he has made a movie he wants to show us all. We gathered in front of the TV and the film begins with Daniel standing outside our front door and asks us to accompany him on a trip. The journey we follow is to key locations and memories that we have experienced together during our fantastic 15 years together. It is the place where we met for the first time, the location for our first date, our first apartment, outside the South Hospital where our beloved girls were born, and much, much more. While these sites are shown, music is being played in the background, music that is very dear to my heart. The film ends with the Kent and song Without your breath while Daniel is holding up signs with the lyrics to the song.When the song is over, Daniel goes down on his knees in the film (and in real life in front of the TV) and proposes to me! We are all crying tears of joy and I’m incredibly happy. Then he tells me to go pack my bag for a romantic weekend at Häringe Slott. “
I asked the bride and groom to share their favorite moment from the day and their best tips on what to focus on when planning the wedding. Thank you, Therese & Daniel for an unforgettable experience, it was such an honor to be able to photograph such a beautiful, memorable day, xoxo, Isabelle.
“It’s so hard to just pick out one, the whole day was magical, from beginning to end. You wish you could always live in the amazing bubble and just stop time. But the moment when we saw each other for the first time just before the ceremony was very special. The funniest part of the day was the dinner, for sure! We have never laughed and cried so much at the same time, what amazing friends and family we have!
We focused on having details that represented us both. The theme was rustic simplicity with a focus on personal items.We felt it was important that our families and friends could feel relaxed throughout the weekend and having music was a key ingredient for our entire wedding. From the time our guests arrived at the Friday, the wedding ceremony, the dinner, and party on Saturday, and finally to the brunch on Sunday.
The biggest challenge was the schedule, that was probably what worried us the most. But with careful planning and good help from Isabelle at 2 Brides and our toast-team, it became a non-issue in the end.
Our best tip to couples planning their wedding is to do it together. Find a theme and follow a red thread. Lay out the timeline for the entire wedding and enjoy the planning process!”
