As the sun rose on Anna & Salvatore’s wedding day, the warm summer air was abuzz with excited energy. In their home town of Manfredonia, nestled within the sparkling coastline of the Adriatic, the lovers revelled in morning preparations, with Anna radiating relaxed beauty in a boudoir photo shoot before adorning her spectacular lace gown.

The ceremony was one of time honored ritual and tradition, taking place at the historic Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. Enduring the intense afternoon heat, friends and family gave witness to the beautiful union, which concluded with a moving opera performance by Anna’s sister.

With the sun dipping below an ombre horizon, the beautiful newlyweds joined their guests at the water’s edge to feast on oysters and champagne, before dancing the night away in each other arms.
