Capri | A Mythical Charm

Capri, Italy is one of those famous places best known for romance, shopping, stunning landscape and good walks exploring the characteristic streets and alleyways.

Today Erich McVey shares with us his trip to Capri, so we can all marvel at the beauty this region in Italy offers.

From Erich: My wife and I visited Capri twice in the past two years to photograph weddings, and it's quickly become one of our very favourite places in the world. The highlight of our trip was undoubtedly a sunset boat tour with Gianni's Boats, complete with a pod of dolphins swimming alongside our boat for miles.

My background is as a wedding & lifestyle photographer, shooting both digital and film to create authentic, soft and natural fine art photographs. Working primarily with natural light to give my work a beautiful, light and airy touch infused with soft tones. 

I have always appreciated and valued the simple things in life and finding the interesting in the ordinary.  Coco Lane was founded as I wanted to create something that is about an experience, the slower pace of life, cosiness and candlelight, cuddling up on the sofa with loved ones, being with the people you love, sharing food with close friends, a feeling of home, nurturing a chosen career, wanderlust travels, savouring the small moments in everyday life and just being you and enjoying a cup of tea.

I'm excited to bring you stories that promote all those moments in life that give us value and meaning; inspiring  us to live beautifully.

"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life.  If you are interested in something, no matter what it is. Go at it full speed.  Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it.  Lukewarm is no good" - Roald Dahl
