We first met Sergei and Leysen at the wedding of their friends Paolo and Alina in Mornico Losana, a town in the region of Lombardy. A year has passed since then, and in the meanwhile the couple decided to get married. And, of course, they invited Paolo and Alina to be witnesses at their small wedding in Cinque Terre.
You could see their couple photoshoot on my website, and now get ready to even more colourful pictures, because we had a very exciting trip along the Ligurian coast on the wedding day. We changed several means of transport and saw many of the most beautiful towns in the region. But let me tell it all in order.
The morning of Leysen and Sergey started with unhurried preparations in the house of their friends in Camogli, a fishing village and a tourist resort, and then we went to the official civil ceremony in the picturesque town of Sestri Levante. After a warm welcome at the local city hall and the dinner in the castle of Grand Hotel dei Castelli, we started our tour of the famous fishing villages of Cinque Terre that ended at sunset in Portovenere to the cries of the seagulls and the clinking of glasses with sparkling wine. Do not be surprised when you’ll see the couple riding a local train and ferry on their wedding day. It was their special request which resulted in a real adventure – a sure way to make a small wedding day in Cinque Terre even more memorable.
