A huge congratulations to Debra and Mark. Thank you for letting us arrange your wedding day. It was a small wedding with just 20 guests made up of family and friends.
It was lovely to visit this picturesque village for a wedding. The harbour, filled with fishing boats takes you back in time and is a great backdrop for the wedding and the wedding photos.
Debra & Mark stayed at the Gardesana, on the small harbour of Torri den Benaco, The groom and guests all met in the bar for pre-wedding drinks before heading off to the castle to meet with the wedding planner.
The bride and her brother got ready in the Hotel Gardesana, then went around the small village for photographs before it was time to walk down the aisle.
Debra and Mark had chosen to marry in the Lemon Groves of Torri Castle. The entrance through the boat room and over a small wooden bridge is a very unique way to arrive. In the lemon groves there is plenty of shade, which was a relief on one of the hottest days of the year.
After the ceremony the celebrant popped open a bottle of bubbly for the Bride and Groom.
The couple, after the wedding, took a short walk around the castle of Torri del Benaco for wedding photos, after which they joined the guests at the Hotel Gardesana for drinks and nibbles.
Debra and Mark had booked a boat trip on the Siora Veronica, a restored Sail boat where they cruised for an hour. After the boat trip they went on to dinner and drinks at the Hotel Gardesana for the evening reception.
Debra and Mark were quite camera shy, but did enjoy the photo shoot as much as possible. The photos were taken around the castle, the harbour and the village of Torri. Photos by Gwen Courtman www.gwencourtman.com
Torri del Benaco offers the possibility to marry in the lemon groves or on top of the tower, which is beautiful too.
