A huge congratulations go out to Emma & Matt, who married in summer 2018 on the terrace of Malcesine Castle. Such a wonderful wedding, and even the rain in the evening made it more fun.
This wonderful couple married on a day with very changeable weather, but it meant we got some great photos with them with the dramatic skies. They were great fun, even willing to go out in the rain on their wedding day.
Emma and Matt were staying in the hotel Prima Luna in Malcesine, which has some great views over the lake due to it's lake front setting.
After the last minute panic to get everyone ready on-time, the bride travelled by tuk tuk up to the wedding venue to meet with Matt who was waiting for her on the terrace of Malcesine Castle.
The wedding was a civil ceremony held in Italian and then translated back into English by the wedding planner. The violin and piano played during the wedding ceremony and as the bride arrived.
Emma and Matt were such fun for the photos, and the photos really show this. After drinks and nibbles by the lake, the couple and guests headed off on the boat to the reception venue. They couple had chosen to have the evening celebrations in the Voglia Restaurant, about 3km from Malcesine and just a short boat trip with Italian prosecco on board.
There were photos with the wedding party on the beach in-front of the restaurant and then later on in the evening some more photos by the lake.
The cake was served late evening, once the guests had danced enough to be hungry again.
Congratulations, hope see you when you come out for your anniversary.
