Wedding Photographer: Lake Orta: Andrew & Stephanie

Amy was the wedding photographer at Lake Orta, Italy for Andrew & Stephanie’s wedding.

Whilst Andy made his way across Europe in our car, I travelled up from Umbria and we met in Milan. After both travelling for upwards of 8 hours, we arrived within 5 minutes of each other! We were both very much looking forward to going to Lake Orta as neither of us had visited before.

Tucked in to the west of Lake Maggiore, Lake Orta is a beautiful, very tranquil Lake with lovely views and very posh villas! Andrew & Stephanie had chosen to marry there since, whilst they are both British, they are currently living in Zurich, Switzerland with their 3 gorgeous children, Isabella, Jake and Lexi. Not too long a journey for them all.

Stephanie arrived to get married in a rowing boat. Then, after the ceremony, we took the boat over to St Julius Island for some family photographs. On return to the San Rocco hotel for aperitivi and a few group shots, we all jumped into another boat to get to the restaurant for the reception, the Ustaria Ca’ del Rat.

Stephanie is incredibly creative and had designed some wonderful decorations; the restaurant looked stunning. Her handmade table plan was gorgeous and I Ioved the ‘photo booth’ too. Take a look below:

Lexi’s shoes – so cute.

The procession was lovely. The 2 page boys went off onto the grass whilst 5 year-old Isabella forgot to scatter her petals and then emptied them out of the basket all at once :-)


Little Lexi sat on Stephanie’s knee throughout the ceremony.

Isn’t this lovely? ‘Catch your butterfly to find your table.’
