Amy was the wedding photographer at Villa Carlotta & Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como, Italy for Tristam & Claire’s wedding.
I think I should have hired an apartment at Lake Como for the summer – I was up there again for the beautiful wedding of Tristam & Claire. Lucky me! The location for the ceremony was in Villa Carlotta; a stunning Villa on the western shores of the Lake. The terrace was decorated beautifully and the sun beat down. In fact, I think the temperatures were in the mid-30s. Phew!
A short walk away to the Grand Hotel Tremezzo for the reception and ‘aperitivi’ on a gorgeous (and shady!) terrace. This hotel is simply stunning. If you fancy treating yourself to a few nights in a jaw-dropping hotel on Lake Como then this is the one to go for. Take a look:

Ready to go.

They thought I wasn’t watching :-)
Beautiful spot to marry at Villa Carlotta.
Just married and heading for the shade!
Meanwhile, the youngest guest is still taking it easy!

Welcome Mr & Mrs!!!
What a room!
Love this one.
What a beautiful (but very hot!) day. Thank you for having me there, I enjoyed every minute. Amy x
Andy & Amy were the Wedding Photographers at Bellagio; Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo & Villa Cipressi in Varenna, Lake Como, Italy for the wedding of Frank & Katherine.
Frank & Katherine married at the Comune of Bellagio on the 11th September. Another beautiful, sunny day; we were lucky to travel to ‘work’ by boat from Varenna to Bellagio to photograph the bride and groom getting ready and the ceremony. The wedding ceremony was light-hearted and fun due to a wonderful translator and a very chilled-out group of mainly Kiwi and Irish guests.
After the ceremony and a few drinks we headed over to Villa Carlotta on the west shore of the Lake in Tremezzo. After an hour or so in the grounds, which included some drinks at a small cafe-bar, we were back on the boat by-passing Bellagio to the East shore of the Lake and the stunning little town of Varenna. The reception was held in Villa Cipressi; an absolutely gorgeous setting and neighbour to Villa Monastero. Enormous thanks to Frank and Katherine and their wonderful group of family and friends for taking extra-special care of us and treating us to a beautiful meal after we had finished.
On with the images:
A fun moment during the ceremony.
Frank made Katherine laugh non-stop!

The front of Villa Carlotta is very impressive. Well worth a trip if you’re in the area.

Andy’s jokes make people laugh (sometimes).

Thanks again folks for looking after us so much; we thoroughly enjoyed our day. Stand-by Louise & Chris – you’re next! – Amy.
