Wedding Photographer: L’Isola del Garda, Lake Garda: Trev & Lorna

Amy was the wedding photographer at L’Isola del Garda, Lake Garda, Italy for Trev & Lorna’s wedding.

Trev & Lorna had booked me to photograph their wedding almost 2 years before the big day so by the time the day came around I was really looking forward to meeting them. We got to meet the night before the wedding as the couple hosted a barbecue for all of the guests at their rented mobile home over-looking beautiful Lake Garda. Such a lovely couple and a great atmosphere – I knew the wedding was going to be amazing.

And it was! What an incredibly stunning day. I am lucky enough to photograph weddings at some of the most beautiful places in Italy but this one was a real stand-out venue. Isola del Garda is a private island just off the western side of the Lake near to Salò and really is quite breath-taking. After the ceremony, aperitif, photographs and a tour of the island for guests, we headed back to the mainland for the reception in a local restaurant. Take a look:

Wedding Photographer: Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda: Lee & Elizabeth

Amy was the wedding photographer at Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda, Italy for Lee & Elizabeth’s wedding.

Back to Malcesine for the final time this year and the lovely wedding of Irish couple, Lee & Elizabeth. I met Elizabeth at the Hotel Capri just to catch some photographs of her and her Dad leaving in the tuc-tuc for the Castle. After the ceremony guests were treated to ice-creams, drinks and snacks at the nearby bar. Lee & Elizabeth came with me for some photographs before we all left for the old port where a champagne reception was served.

A boat-trip came next and we were dropped off at La Voglia restaurant. Take a peek;

Beautiful.

Wedding Photographer: Malcesine Castle & Al Cervo Restaurant, Lake Garda: David & Sarah

Amy was the wedding photographer at Malcesine Castle & Al Cervo Restaurant, Lake Garda, Italy for David & Sarah’s wedding.

Back to Malcesine Castle once again – lucky me! This time for the lovely wedding of David & Sarah. Sarah got ready in a great apartment just a short walk from the Castle. Once ready, she strolled through the town with her Dad, Bridesmaids and Page Boy until we all reached Malcesine Castle. I dashed up to quickly meet David and then watched as Sarah and her Bridal party made their way up the steps to the terrace.

After the ceremony, photographs and confetti, we made our way down to La Pace restaurant and the old port of the town for a champagne toast. After that, guests were treated to a boat ride before we all headed up the hill to Al Cervo Restaurant for a lovely meal and speeches. Take a look:

Beautifully-coloured buildings of Malcesine.

Wedding Photographer: Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda: Michael & Danielle

Amy was the wedding photographer at Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda, Italy for Michael & Danielle’s wedding.

I was back at Malcesine Castle, Lake Garda for the wedding of Michael & Danielle on another roaring-hot day. Guests, most of whom had travelled from Liverpool, were treated to the beautiful views from the terrace where the ceremony took place, ice-cream at the bar, drinks & snacks and then a stunning boat-ride. The boat took us around to the neighbouring village and the lovely La Voglia restaurant where the evening festivities took place. Take a peek:

Wedding Photographer: Villa Cortine Palace Hotel, Sirmione, Lake Garda: Wael & Lene

Amy was the wedding photographer at Villa Cortine Palace Hotel, Sirmione, Lake Garda, Italy for Wael & Lene’s wedding.

This was my 12th of 12 weddings in the month of June and what a finale it was! Villa Cortine Palace Hotel in the beautiful town of Sirmione on the southern coast of Lake Garda is an absolutely stunning hotel. 170 guests were treated to fabulous weather, fabulous views across the Lake and fabulous food. Guests had travelled from every corner of the earth to be there including the Middle East and Norway and there was real party atmosphere throughout the whole day. The room where the wedding reception took place was breath-taking and the smell of the many bouquets of flowers filled the air.

All that and what a stunning-looking couple! Take a look:

A lovely spot to photograph the dress hanging.
