Wedding Photographer: Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda: Craig & Laura

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

All of the readers of this blog know that I am a huge fan of photographing weddings at Malcesine Castle, Lake Garda and I am lucky enough to do so several times each year. My first trip this summer was for the wedding of Scottish couple, Craig & Laura. A beautifully-hot day made for the walk up to the steps at the Castle a tough job but it was more than worth the effort; the views from the terrace never cease to amaze me and the guests.

A boat ride cooled us all off and the evening reception at La Voglia restaurant was in full swing when I left. Take a peak:

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 & 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: Malcesine Castle & La Voglia, Lake Garda: Andy & Maria

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

I’ve photographed so many weddings in the past at Malcesine Castle, up on Lake Garda, but had just the one to do this year so boy was I looking forward to it! It’s such a breath-taking spot and I really do love every minute of working there. Both Andy & Maria got ready at the impressive Hotel Vega and whilst Andy, the guests and I walked through Malcesine to the Castle, Maria and her Dad followed on afterwards in the town’s tuc-tuc.

Having received some dreadful news from home just the day before, Andy did amazingly well to keep smiling and really did enjoy his day despite the sadness. With a fun-loving smiler like Maria as his gorgeous new Bride to keep his head up and such wonderful guests the laughter could be heard throughout the beautiful little town of Malcesine!

After aperitivi on the Lake edge we jumped on a boat and toured the Lake for an hour before being dropped off at La Voglia restaurant in Val di Sogno. Here we go, look at the smiles in these photos:
