Villa Eliana wedding - Becki & Jamie

Villa Eliana Wedding Photographer Sorrento

villa eliana wedding photography

When Beckie and Jamie a lovely couple from Wiltshire invited me to be their Villa Eliana wedding photographer I couldn't say no. I was really excited to be privileged to capture the beautiful memories at their destination wedding on the Amalfi Coast. I love photographing destination weddings, so I have been very much looking forward to this wedding since January when I photographed a wedding in Algarve.

Being my first time as a wedding photographer Sorrento, I arrived the day before the wedding to scout the location. Immediately fell in love with the gorgeous town in the south-west of Italy with a lovely view into Capri, Mount Vesuvius, and  Gulf of Naples. This scenery is the delight of every photographer including a destination wedding photographer like me. With gorgeous views from the cliffs, a pretty marina and a lively town centre, Sorrento have everything to offer.

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 Beckie and Jamie’s very relaxed wedding and with gorgeous weather, most of the reception took place outdoors.

The outdoor ceremony with only close friends and family present where they were treated to delicious food and high standard of service – very Italian!

After dinner guests were serenaded with live music which is definitely the best way to open the dance floor! Beckie & Jamie, thank you for taking me on your Italian adventure with you as your Villa Eliana wedding photographer.

"On our very first meeting with Martin we knew he was the photographer for us. He seemed to understand what it was we were looking for straight away. One other thing that really stood out to us about Martin was that he was excited, and I mean SUPER excited, to photograph our wedding venue: Villa Eliana, Sorrento, Italy. 

During the ceremony Martin blended in with the rest of the guests and you couldn't tell he was there - apart from the evidence he later delivered in what were some truly stunning wedding photos. Every one of our guests told us post-wedding how attentive, respectful and none-stop Martin was.

After the wedding was over Martin was quick to present all of the photos, including some prints and electronic versions for us. Once we had these, he made sure he was reminding us to choose the photos for the album that we were having made through Martin. I'm sure we haven't been the easiest or most helpful clients at times but Martin's professionalism and delivery of the end product never wavered. He clearly has a great passion for what he does and takes pride in every shot." - Rebecca & Jamie

Algarve wedding at Hilton Vilamoura - Ivet & Elliot

Being Elliot and Ivet’s Hilton Vilamoura wedding photographer was a wonderful experience for me. It was a lovely January wedding in Algarve – fantastic and well organized! The couple lives in Scotland and there was a real mixture of nationalities on their big day. Guests from UK, Portugal, Spain and USA were present. The wedding co-ordinator did a great job in planning and executing a beautiful ceremony in the Hilton Vilamoura’s romantic gardens. The venue, Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas, is a modern five-star property with a large open-plan atrium lobby, the central gardens with cascading waterfalls, and adjacent spa. Its wonderful style and ambience gives it a relaxed feel that appeals to couples.

This particular wedding was more than business as usual for me because I photographed the groom brother’s wedding few years back in Cambridge, so I was familiar with the family. There were also few couples present whose weddings I photographed which made this event even more special for me.

Elliot and Ivet had an outdoor ceremony (blessing) with live music and prayers. Fortunately for a January wedding, the sun shone throughout the whole day and was really warm, quite lucky for January.
I started with photographing some groom prep and then went to the bride’s. The bride said she was so excited yet felt totally relaxed as she posed for her wedding photoshoot. After the ceremony there was drink reception and group pictures were taken in the Blue Lagoon Patio area. Before the wedding breakfast in late afternoon there was lovely soft light, so I took the couple for a few portraits.

After the fantastic meal and speeches which took place in Tejo Balroom, I took Elliot and Ivet for some evening shots.
There was no first dance or disco, cutting of the cake concluded the day. As there wasn't enough time on the wedding day and the couple really wanted to have some pictures on the beach, we did a session the next day in the morning at The Vilamoura beach which is only 5 min drive from the hotel. It was worth it!

My style of photography allows me to capture authentic, timeless, touching and heartfelt moments that will be cherished for a lifetime. As a Hilton Vilamoura wedding photographer, I am delighted with the quality of Elliot and Ivet’s wedding coverage and I have selected a few of my favourite photos to share with you below.

"Outstanding!! Martin's friendly, kind and professional attitude is really what makes him stand out as a photographer. Our wedding was at the Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas Golf Resort & Spa in Algarve, south Portugal in January 2017. Martin's creativity and ideas are really what made us feel comfortable whilst at the same time taking some wonderful and memorable photos of us on our wedding day.

As well as this, his personable correspondence before and after the wedding made the experience on the day go so smoothly. It was simply a joy working with him and we would highly recommend Martin Dabek as a photographer for anybody's wedding, particularly if you're having a destination wedding, as ours was captured beautifully! Thank you Martin, very very much!  - Elliot & Ivet, Edinburgh."
