Wedding in Portofino, Italy

Let me take you on a journey to the dreamy Italian style wedding of Stephanie and Dan, captured by yours truly, Janis Ratnieks, in the breathtaking setting of Portofino, Italy. This stylish couple from London chose the romantic Church of San Giorgio in Portofino for their ceremony, followed by a joyous reception at Castello Canevaro in nearby Zoagli.


The day was marked by a whimsical touch of nature as the wind swept through Portofino, playfully lifting Stephanie’s veil into the sky—a moment of pure magic that added a poetic charm to their love story. As a wedding photographer who specializes in candid, reportage-style photography, I embraced the spontaneity of the day, capturing authentic moments and emotions as they unfolded against the picturesque backdrop of Portofino’s vibrant center.


Stephanie and Dan’s portraits reflect the essence of their love—a blend of elegance and authenticity that resonates throughout the images. From intimate exchanges in the narrow streets of Portofino to heartfelt embraces at Castello Canevaro, every photograph tells a tale of romance and celebration.


The reception at Castello Canevaro was a delight of Italian hospitality and seaside charm, where guests reveled in the stunning views of the Ligurian Sea and indulged in gourmet delights. The atmosphere was lively and filled with laughter, echoing the warmth of Stephanie and Dan’s union.


My approach to photography is not just about capturing images but creating a narrative that encapsulates the essence of the day. Stephanie and Dan’s wedding in Portofino was a true reflection of their love story, infused with the timeless beauty of Italy’s coastal splendor.


Through my lens, I aimed to preserve the fleeting moments and genuine emotions that made their day unforgettable. From the fluttering veil against the azure sky to the heartfelt toasts overlooking the sea, every detail was captured with reverence and artistic flair.


Stephanie and Dan’s wedding in Portofino remains a cherished memory, and I am grateful to have been part of their journey, documenting their love story in one of the world’s most picturesque locations.
