Three-Day Extravaganza in Jamaica, by Anna Ambrosi [RF Wedding of the Week]

March 17, 2016

For hardworking wedding photographer Anna Ambrosi of Bianco Photography (she's from Verona, Italy, but based in London), 2015 was a banner year that she says can be traced back to one 3-day event in particular last October—the Caribbean-themed wedding of couple Carolyn and Scott in Jamaica. "Carolyn and Scott were the most loving and kind of hosts since the very first minutes of our weekend together," says Ambrosi, "and I’ll never, ever find words enough to thank them for the wonderful gift of allowing me to be their wedding photographer. I hope my pictures make them remember about the beauty they were surrounded by and that they created themselves gathering together their wonderful families in such a paradise on earth."

Day 1: The highlight was a dinner at the Lobster Trapp, located just in front of the Round Hill Resort in Montego Bay where the wedding was to take place a few days later. Says Ambrosi, "I don’t really eat lobsters but everything was so delicious and people were so nice and friendly, and having a delicious candlelight dinner was a great way to kick off the island wedding."
