Wedding photographer: Villa Aminta, Stresa, Lake Maggiore, Italy: Simon & Victoria

Amy & Andy were the wedding photographers at Villa Aminta, Stresa, Lake Maggiore, Italy for the wedding of Simon & Victoria.

Of the 3 main Italian Lakes, Lake Maggiore is the smallest and quietest but certainly equals Garda and Como in beauty. The northern part of the Lake is actually in Switzerland and the largest lake-side town on the western shore is Stresa. This was the location for Simon and Vix’s wedding last Saturday at Villa Aminta, a wonderfully elegant Villa on the northern edge of the town – oh it’s tough being a wedding photographer sometimes!

The wedding ceremony took place on the lake-side garden and a wonderful Italian spread of champagne and canapes followed on the terrace at the front of the hotel before the guests made their way into the beautiful dining room for dinner. A particular highlight of their day for us was one of the most hilarious best man’s speeches that we have ever heard. We’re surprised that any photographs during the speech are in focus as we were shaking with laughter throughout!  On with the images:

A very proud father.

What a setting!

Simon & Vix really didn’t stop smiling all day.

You had to be there!

We love photographing confetti shots from 2 different angles.  The results are great from both!

Simon and Vix make their entrance: this was captured just as the were announced and the guests began to stand.  This is a photograph that’s normally impossible to take as the minute everyone stands up, you lose sight of the couple entering the room.

Still smiling!

This little girl, Amber had everyone in hysterics as she boogied the night away!

We’re back on the road – but not to far this time, for Dan & Sheila’s wedding in Riccione.  Ciao!
