Caroline & Gus, on top of the castle steps

Congratulations to Caroline and Gus who who married in Malcesine Castle in July 2019. It was the groom who arranged most of the wedding, he did the emailing and It was a lovely to change to be dealing with the groom, and such a nice groom too.

Gus and Caroline stayed in the Hotel Casa Barca in Malcesine, a lovely hotel with marvellous views of beautiful rooms. There was a lot of last minute rushing around to ensure everyone was at the wedding on time, but we made it! Caroline was collected in the wedding tuk tuk and driven to the castle on time.

Caroline looked beautiful as she walked down the aisle with her son.It was a very breezy day which wasn't great for the hair styles of the guests, but it did soon calm down. Caroline arrived at the castle for her ceremony, which was very emotional for everyone at the wedding.

After the couple had tied the knot, they were whisked off for the romantic photos, and then met the guests again at the castle exit for the bubble blowing around the tuk tuk.

After this the bride and groom took a boat for the evening reception. They had hired the La Voglia restaurant for exclusive use for the evening and danced the evening away
