“Ahhhh these are just absolutely perfect. Thank you so much. Honestly. We cannot thank you enough, you made our day so perfect. Your photography style is just what we wanted. Relaxed, yet absolutely stunning…We are seeing family later and I cannot wait to show them! If we win the lottery, we are all doing this every year!!”
Lago di Como – An intimate wedding in Varenna
A wedding that I waited SO long for, but not as long as Sarah and Steve. The most fabulous, intimate Lake Como wedding in stunning Varenna. I was asked by the wonderful Louise Perry Weddings if I would consider a wedding in Italy – it took all of three seconds for me to announce that if I wasn’t chosen I would probably have got on a plane regardless and shown up with my cameras.
Another covid postponement, but oh so worth waiting for. Sarah and Steve brought their closest family and friends with them, including of course their absolutely gorgeous little man, Finn. It was hotter than the sun, but hasn’t most of this Summer been this way, it seems we are in for warmer Summers than ever before, and I will admit the heat got to me at the start of the ceremony, but thankfully drinks were flowing day and night, thanks to the brilliant staff at their venue Hotel Villa Cipressi. What a location to be wed!
Italy is a place I hold dear but I’d never visited the Lakes before, and I was truly blown away. It’s no surprise that Sarah and Steve chose such a beautiful setting to hold their wedding. Planners Louise and Natalie were outstanding as usual, working tirelessly to make sure everything was perfect, which it truly was. The boat trip with the couple and Finn is a memory I will keep forever in my heart, some welcome wind and respite from the heat, and some lovely moments for them as a family of three.
The evening was filled with incredible food, the most laid back vibes by the water, and some absolutely amazing speeches. Sarah looked breathtaking in her dress and the bright and colourful flowers by Fiori Q set the look perfectly. We ended the night with some dancing to the fabulous duo who played all day and who were such fun to have around, Akira Manera – highly recommend these guys, they travel too!
I had the most amazing few days, it was hard leaving my family but it felt like a home from home, as I now consider these guys family too. Thank you Sarah and Steve, for sticking with me and having me along with you, it was over so quickly but I know we’ll always have these lovely memories and for that I am truly thankful. Here are a few previews from their glorious and magical day…x
