The past few years have been a true roller coaster of emotions in many ways. After almost twenty-four months of health measures and restrictions, which have seriously affected the wedding industry as a whole and destination wedding videography in particular, 2022 has been a year of reopening, expansion and celebration. A year under the sign of international travel and destination weddings. As the year wraps up, it’s now time to turn another page. I cannot believe that this exciting wedding and elopement season has already come to an end! Yet, taking a few moments to reflect on the year highlights, I am really happy to share with you a glimpse of the best wedding videos of 2022.
This short showreel has been inspired by the movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower“. As always, my aim is to tell a story, while being able to fit a few of the most important memories from this year.
The best wedding videos of 2022: A big thank you
Dear couples, I’d like to say a big THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your love and trust. Thank you for embracing my approach and personal vision and for connecting with me on a human level. I’m really grateful to have met you all and to tell all your beautiful stories.
You always have been and will always be the protagonists in Cinema of Poetry ‘s Story and wedding films. You are the main reason why I chose to be a destination wedding videographer. Your films are the best wedding videos of 2022!
It is not about the journey, or the destination, but about the people that you meet along the way…

What an amazing year has it been!
Lots of unforgettable adventures, lovely people, moving stories, crazy ups & downs…
This year I have filmed some of the most amazing destination weddings and elopements all over the globe. Some have been physically demanding: in more than one instances, crazy back-to-back travels to shoot wedding videos have occurred. I recall, in particular, travelling from the island of Thasos to Santorini then Athens, Rome and Puglia, all within an interval of 5 days! This was intense and almost with no time to rest at all…
Many of 2022 wedding films have also required a very high level of pre-production work. From location scouting, to planning and implementing the best setup for lights, camera angles and sound for ceremonies and speeches. Some people may still believe that shooting a wedding video in 2022 is as simple as holding a camera and pressing the record button. However, when we are talking about the best wedding videos, a very important part lies in the pre-production and post-production work that is required to produce a high-level cinematic film.
We also had to deal with crazy weather. I still remember, running to grab all cameras, tripods and other equipment to run for shelter, after a ceremony in the woods near Barcelona, when a crazy thunderstorm hit the place right after the end of the vows! Or the thunderstorm that hit the Amalfi Coast during the prewedding party of a luxury wedding in Villa Astor. That was intense!
Apart from filming some of the most beautiful destination wedding videos, 2022 has been a year dedicated to building my studio. This is a big project, that is almost accomplished now and 2023 will be the year where Cinema of Poetry will move to a new place.
On a personal level, I laughed a lot, cried a lot, danced till late night, edited till the morning, had a few drinks, watched the northern lights, observed the stars dance in the sky, made new friends… I enjoyed every single moment of it and really feel my heart beating full of inspiration.

2023 Best Wedding Videography
After two difficult years for the whole industry, 2022 has been a blast for destination weddings. It has also been a moment of reflection as well as a milestone for the future and expansion of Cinema of Poetry with the new studio coming up. So, let’s see where 2023 takes us.
Sometimes, the couples that I work with ask me: “which is your best wedding video?” My answer to this question is that the best wedding video will be the one that we will produce from your own wedding! And as cheesy or ambitious this may sound, this is a challenge that I always put to myself in order to evolve.
If you resonate with my storytelling approach and videography style, Let’s talk to see how we can create the best wedding video for your own destination event.
The best is yet to come
Big hug, lots of love ❤
