Sicilian Island Wedding by Jonas Peterson
A wedding in Italy generally involves a historic villa, romantic canal or some rolling hills in the countryside, but today’s wedding shot by the amazing Jonas Peterson shows yet another side to this beautiful part of the world. Frida and Alex chose to marry on the island of Lipari, the largest of the Aeolian islands located off the coast of Sicily. And as you’re about to see, the story behind this wedding is as beautiful as the scenery.
From the Photographer: Alex only met his biological father once. He came to Stockholm out of the blue, they fought, they made up and promises were made they would catch up again on the island of Lipari, just off Sicily, where Alex’s father lived. Three weeks later, before Alex got to see him again, his father died in a tragic accident. Alex’s father left him a beautiful house on top of this magnificent island and the wedding took place there, getting ready, ceremony and the reception that followed. I imagine this has shaped Alex in more ways than one. You can tell he’s a man that looks after his relationships. The love he shows for Frida, his mother, his half brother, step father and everyone around him inspired me immensely. Helping me capture this weekend I had Jakob from Nordica Photography. I could write a whole blog post about his talent. And the wedding planners were my dear friends Mitra and Fabio. It was a love fest like no other.
