Almost one year ago, Samantha and Mike became a family. It was always a dream of theirs to celebrate their wedding day on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Can you guess which island we are talking about? It certainly is the romantic Capri! To accompany them on this magical journey, and to capture their emotions, precious moments, hugs and laughter, was an exceptional photographer and friend, Luca Bottaro. Luca has told the story of one of the most beautiful weddings of the year through his photographs, shared on social networks all over the world thanks to their guests from far and wide!
If choosing to get married in another country has always seemed complicated to you, then we can guess that getting married in a place so loved and requested as Capri has crossed your mind. And you are right – it involves high-level organisational skills, which is why it may be necessary to call in support. These loved ones called in the support of the wedding planner DolceVita Wedding Agenzy. Thanks to their skills, the much dreamt about marriage project took shape, allowing Mike and Samantha to make their dreams a reality. The collaboration with Luca Bottaro Photography was found due to the wedding agency’s connection to professionals in the area which you want to marry in, meaning their help is priceless in the organisation process.
When you want something extraordinary you must do something extraordinary. The beauty of Sam and Mike’s wedding is centred around the simplicity and harmony between all the different elements. The numerous unique ideas that made the wedding rendered it unforgettable – the men’s suits and the details for the bridesmaids, friends, and guests, the arrival by boat to their reception, the entertainment, and everything in between… every detail was thought of! And everything has been carefully documented by Luca Bottaro Photography, from the moment they arrived on the island to when they finally got to say ‘I do’.
On August 28th, a parade of joy, beauty, and joie de vivre went down the colourful and characteristic streets of Capri, a catwalk that Luca Bottaro captured with authentic and exciting shots that express the happiness, the gestures, the context, the funny expressions of the wedding party. These shots will allow them, after years and years, to relive all the smallest emotions as if not even a day has passed!

The pure emotion of the bride’s arrival as she walked into the venue with her ‘Bride Squad’ in romantic long champagne-coloured dresses was undoubtedly an image to remember. Even more dazzling were the beautiful make-up looks created by make-up artist Kuchumova Selya, which stole the show under the warm evening light. Luca Bottaro Photography was able to take a magnificent sequence of the whole journey that led Samantha to the altar from the hotel. Betwixt the initial laughter and the tears of emotion to the moment she joined hands with her husband and said the special words ‘I do’. Overlooking the magnificent panorama of the Faraglioni, their dream came true!
After the ceremony and the traditional throwing of the rice, the newlyweds left to watch the sunset onboard a traditional motorboat, and, as always with Luca Bottaro Photography, their happiness in this moment was captured forever.
And finally…. time for celebrating and dancing into the early hours of the morning! A splendid wedding, where love was certainly the undisputed protagonist of the party. Its success was all down to the elegance, originality and excellent taste of Mike and Samantha in combination with their wedding planner. Last, but definitely not least, the entire event was immortalised through the dedication, empathy and professionalism of Luca Bottaro Photography.
