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: 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.

Wedding Photographer: Torri del Benaco, Lake Garda: Nigel & Becky

Amy was the wedding photographer at Torri del Benaco, Lake Garda, Italy for Nigel & Becky’s wedding.

I have photographed many weddings at different places on Lake Garda but for me, this was the first time at Torri del Benaco. What a treat! The ceremony took place in a lemon grove of the castle and is very different to anything I have experienced before. I loved it! The town of Torri del Benaco is really pretty and made a lovely place to enjoy drinks along the lake-side after the ceremony before we took a boat to Garda for the reception at the stunning Hotel du Parc.

Nigel & Becky were such great fun and I have rarely photographed bigger smiles. A wonderful day all-round. Here we go:

Tranquil Lake Garda.

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:
