Elopement in Ostuni

Let's begin from here - this photo by Francesco Gravina won an award in an international contest in the category Bride Portrait




Tegan and Gabriel will stay forever in my heart.
There was something special about them from the very beginning.

The first contact came from Gabriel, which sometimes happen - I mean the groom enquiring. But then usually the big organization work goes through the bride. Not with them!

However, Gabriel was so focused to make everything special for Tegan that he missed one of the necessary documents to get married. Australia is quite far from Ostuni though!

48 hours to find a solution and make it work, what a challange! 

Finally they got married at the Ostuni Town Hall in a sunny day, with Italian witnesses and an ice cream to party.

About Me


Giusy D'Ambrosio I was born in the amazing and difficult city of Naples, Italy. I grew up on a land between the Volcano and the sea. Here I found my twin soul, my love, my husband and now business partner, Mimmo Morena. We married on a rainy Friday in May 1995 – against the will of our families. I was the too emancipated city girl, he was a country boy with a job that wasn’t a “true” job – professional basketball player. Anyway, we did it. Both families took part in the wedding, we had 280 guests. I didn’t care about anything but my dress and bouquet. The dress was designed and tailor-made for me by Nuage – Naples. As to flower decorations, I told the florist I loved red roses. The only thing I cared for was reaching the altar! Maybe this is why today I do love organising every single detail of a wedding – my brides and grooms get the best out of my time and expertise.
