Amy was the wedding photographer at the Church of St Abbondio in Mezzegra and Villa d’Este, Lake Como for Mark & Henrietta’s wedding.
When the sun is shining at Lake Como and the sky is deep blue, there is nowhere quite like it. Mark & Henrietta were so lucky with the fabulous weather. It was a perfect day in more ways than one however. I have photographed weddings at the Church of St Abbondio in Mezzegra before – what a setting! The church sits high above the Lake, the views are magnificent and the interior of the church isn’t bad neither! The 4 singers on the balcony that sang throughout the ceremony reminded me of the last 10 minutes of Sister Act. Hasten to add, I had a few ‘tingly’ moments.
About half an hour south along the Lake from Mezzegra sits Villa d’Este. Wow, Wow, Wow – there are no words to describe this place. Read about its history and impressive guests list but first, take a look at the images below:
Dress detail on the lovely little flower girls.
I love the excited / proud / nervous / happy look on Mark’s face.
An hour later and Just Married!
Guests enjoy the view from the front of the Church of St Abbondio.
Mark & Henrietta arrived at Villa d’Este by car whilst their guests enjoyed a boat ride past George’s place! This gave us some extra time to take some photographs of the couple in the beautiful gardens.
Simple and elegant.
More than 100 fountains line this avenue of trees.
The guests joined us and an evening of fun and entertainment followed.
Attached at the fascinator!
Isn’t this room beautiful? I absolutely LOVED it!
Lots of tears and lots of laughter during the speeches.
As the glasses were clinked, Mark & Henrietta kissed.
I loved the rich light in this room. Lovely.
It really was a perfect day. Mark & Henrietta; thank you for the experience :-) – Amy xGoogle+
