Wedding Photographer: Church of St Abbondio in Mezzegra & Villa d’Este, Lake Como: Mark & Henrietta

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:

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.
