Wedding photographer: Malcesine Castle, Lake Garda, Italy: James & Hayley

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at Malcesine Castle, Lake Garda, Italy for the wedding of James & Hayley.

Do we or do we not have just about the best job in the world? From the beautiful Hassler Hotel in Rome up to the breath-taking scenery of Lake Garda and, in particular, the stunning town of Malcesine.

James and Hayley travelled from their home in Dubai to marry at this magical spot on Monday along with around 70 of their friends and family from the UK. There simply aren’t enough superlatives to describe the setting for their wedding in Malcesine Castle, which dominates the town and sits on the edge of Lake Garda. The ceremony took place on an open-air terrace with some of the best views of Lake Garda – a wedding photographers’ dream. After the ceremony, the couple were taken in a fab little tuk-tuk to the waters edge. Guests strolled through the beautiful streets to join them there for aperitifs and canapes. The reception took place at ‘La Vecchia Malcesine’ – a restaurant which is featured in many of the good food guides including this year’s Michelin Guide. James and Hayley are so fun-loving, they laughed all day and partied the night away to a great live band. Thanks for a great day folks!

Where to start with some images – we’ve got sooooo many lovely shots, here’s just a tiny selection:

Move over Brad Pitt, make space for James!

Hayley on the terrace of her suite – now that’s what I call a room with a view!

The narrow, colourful streets of Malcesine.

A lovely moment during the ceremony.

Just married! Love the wide angle and lens flare on this.

Hayley’s Dad’s speech was hilarious, although there were a few tears shed too.

Breath-taking! Thanks folks for making us feel so special even though it was your big day! Thanks also must go to Pam from Lake Garda Weddings who did a wonderful job of keeping everything on schedule and the guests informed of what was happening & when.
