Amy was the wedding photographer in Varenna, Bellagio & Veleso, Lake Como, Italy for Stevie & Rachel’s wedding.
The weather on the 1st of October was absolutely beautiful. Bright blue, not a cloud in the sky and almost as hot as a mid-summer’s day but without the bugs! I’m not sure that there is anywhere quite like Lake Como when the weather is perfect like that and the treat of going way up high above the Lake to a little place called Veleso was outstanding.
Rachel got ready in a lovely apartment directly opposite George Clooney’s house in Pognana Lario and then jumped on a boat for a half hour journey to Varenna for the ceremony. The Old Church of San Giorgio in Varenna is gorgeous and the religious ceremony provided the perfect contrast to the rest of the day which was relaxed and fun.
After the ceremony, Rachel, Stevie and I jumped back on the speed boat to get ahead of the guests so we could get some time for photographs in Bellagio. After that it was up the 4 mile windy, steep road to Veleso where the views across the mountains blew everyone away. Take a look:
I love this photograph of Rachel being helped into the boat.

We did it!!
Guests greet Rachel & Stevie as they exit the church and grab a handful of confetti.
They line up ready to launch!

A beautiful day, a beautiful couple – thank you for having me. -Amy x
