Wedding photographer: Malcesine Castle & La Vecchia Malcesine, Lake Garda, Italy: Elliott & Amy

Amy was the wedding photographer at Malcesine Castle & La Vecchia Malcesine, Lake Garda, Italy for the wedding of Elliott & Amy.

My first trip of many up to Lake Garda in 2015 and in particular to the pretty little town of Malcesine near to the top of the Lake. Malcesine Castle is a super-popular place to marry which is no surprise as it’s in a breathtakingly-beautiful spot! Elliott & Amy had a really fun day in a very elegant and classy way. I think Amy would have looked elegant in a bin-bag to be honest! See here:

Loads of Bridesmaids!

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 & 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:
