Amy was the Wedding Photographer at Castiglione del Lago & Il Borgia, Lake Trasimeno, Umbria, Italy for the wedding of Charles & Ellie.
Wouldn’t like to speak too soon but I reckon, as far as wedding photographers go, I’m pretty lucky. Sunny and hot for the wedding in Malcesine on Monday followed by heavy storms and rain later in the week, followed by a baking-hot day for the wedding of Charles & Ellie on Saturday. Almost on my doorstep, a castle in Umbria on the shores of Lake Trasimeno played host to the wedding party and guests, with a trip to the beautiful town of Castiglione del Lago thrown in. Charles and Ellie actually had two ceremonies: a legally-binding civil ceremony in Castiglione del Lago followed by a blessing at the castle. They really made the most of their wedding day as preparations for the midday ceremony were well underway when I arrived before 10am, and the party was just getting going when I left after 10pm.
Here’s a sneak preview.
Charles gets ready:
A lovely moment. The Father of the Bride helped Ellie with her dress and jewellery:
The Comune of Castiglione del Lago where the civil ceremony took place. A room covered in rich frescoes:
Once an island, Castiglione del Lago has beautiful lake views:
A long, narrow tunnel leads from the Comune building to the Castle:
Wandering through the town, a store owner offered the Bride & Groom a glass of prosecco. The Italians love a wedding!
Back at the Castle and Ellie attached a stunning train to the back of her dress.
The soprano made the hairs stand up on the back of necks during the blessing:
More confetti please…
More and more Brides and Grooms are asking for this style of group shot. Please ask, they’re fun to create!
Chilling out in the late afternoon sun:
Three best men! Things got a little dark but speeches – read by the light from a mobile phone!
Thank you folks! Relax and enjoy a wonderful honeymoon.
