Shrirley and Ema have been friends since they were very young. They enjoyed a wonderful wedding but during the day there was a strong storm which made it impossible to do the couple photo session how they wanted to do it.
So they decided to meet their photographer some time later in the beautiful location of Sperlonga for their wedding photos.
how was the location chosen?
Sperlonga is a wonderful seashore town that is very well known in the area. It is located about halfway between Roma and Naples and famous for it’s ancient Roman sea grotto.
In August it’s quite hot and the town is crowded with tourists, but the sunset there is spectacular and the light is perfect for taking a walk while taking photos that will become incredible memories.
It’s easily accessible for all ages. Easy to reach, with some ups and downs inside the town, but nothing too hard.
Sperlonga is a fantastic place to live the Italian dream for a couple of days.
Do you require any special permits or permission to get married or have a photoshoot here?
No permission is needed to have a photoshoot in Sperlonga. You can get married in different places in the area (churches, restaurants, villas, etc), these places need to have a permit for your ceremony.
You can have both a legal ceremony here or just symbolic, this also depends on the location chosen.
What are Your top tips for an elopement or after-wedding photo session in this area?
From the photographer: My advice would be to spend at least a couple of days in the area to get to know the wonderful beaches and cliffs. During summer, particularly in the high season (July -August), it is a small town full of tourists. It will be really packed and crowded. I recommend May, June, and September as the best months for either your elopement or after-wedding photo session here.
