Wedding Photographer: Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda: Lee & Elizabeth

Amy was the wedding photographer at Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda, Italy for Lee & Elizabeth’s wedding.

Back to Malcesine for the final time this year and the lovely wedding of Irish couple, Lee & Elizabeth. I met Elizabeth at the Hotel Capri just to catch some photographs of her and her Dad leaving in the tuc-tuc for the Castle. After the ceremony guests were treated to ice-creams, drinks and snacks at the nearby bar. Lee & Elizabeth came with me for some photographs before we all left for the old port where a champagne reception was served.

A boat-trip came next and we were dropped off at La Voglia restaurant. Take a peek;

Beautiful.

Wedding Photographer: Positano: Brendon & Anna

Amy was the wedding photographer in Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy for Brendon & Anna’s wedding.

Positano’s stunning. I was there again just 2 days after David & Sarah’s wedding at Lake Garda so talk about travelling the length and breadth of Italy! Brendon & Anna live in New York although Anna’s Mum is Polish which meant for a great international party and family reunion.

The ceremony took place in the beautiful Church of Santa Maria Assunta, the dominant church close to the beach in Positano. After the ceremony, we took a boat trip before heading back to Positano for group photographs and some time for photographs with Brendon & Anna.

Music on the Rocks played host for drinks and nibbles before we headed upstairs to Le Terrazze for the evening reception. Really impressive places! Take a peek:

Wedding Photographer: Malcesine Castle & Al Cervo Restaurant, Lake Garda: David & Sarah

Amy was the wedding photographer at Malcesine Castle & Al Cervo Restaurant, Lake Garda, Italy for David & Sarah’s wedding.

Back to Malcesine Castle once again – lucky me! This time for the lovely wedding of David & Sarah. Sarah got ready in a great apartment just a short walk from the Castle. Once ready, she strolled through the town with her Dad, Bridesmaids and Page Boy until we all reached Malcesine Castle. I dashed up to quickly meet David and then watched as Sarah and her Bridal party made their way up the steps to the terrace.

After the ceremony, photographs and confetti, we made our way down to La Pace restaurant and the old port of the town for a champagne toast. After that, guests were treated to a boat ride before we all headed up the hill to Al Cervo Restaurant for a lovely meal and speeches. Take a look:

Beautifully-coloured buildings of Malcesine.

Wedding Photographer: Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda: Michael & Danielle

Amy was the wedding photographer at Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda, Italy for Michael & Danielle’s wedding.

I was back at Malcesine Castle, Lake Garda for the wedding of Michael & Danielle on another roaring-hot day. Guests, most of whom had travelled from Liverpool, were treated to the beautiful views from the terrace where the ceremony took place, ice-cream at the bar, drinks & snacks and then a stunning boat-ride. The boat took us around to the neighbouring village and the lovely La Voglia restaurant where the evening festivities took place. Take a peek:

Wedding Photographer: Ravello: Andy & Gemma

Amy was the wedding photographer in Ravello, Amalfi Coast, Italy for Andy & Gemma’s wedding.

Andy & Gemma chose to have a very private, intimate wedding and I was lucky enough to be invited along! Just the 2 of them and both sets of parents attended. Gemma got ready in the lovely Villa Fraulo which is perfectly placed just a few steps away from where the ceremony took place in Ravello’s beautiful garden. To be honest, the entire town is like a garden – such colourful flowers filling every nook and cranny whilst alleyways and narrow streets are blooming. After the ceremony, photographs and a glass of prosecco in the local bar, we headed down to Amalfi for a few more photographs before I waved off the wedding party as they sailed into the sunset!

Here we go:

Beautiful Ravello.
