Destination Spotlight: Italy

Amore Italy…incredible  sceneries, some of the best gastronomy in the world, art, history, architecture, style  and romance…the list goes on! Italy as a wedding destination has it all! In 2014 I decided to make my dream of visiting and working in Italy a reality!  My journey started in Venice -  I’ve always been drawn to this majestic city with its winding waterways, cobbled courtyards, beautiful architecture and tiny back streets, it truly is one of the most picturesque places in the world. I set about contacting the right people to make the dream of a styled wedding shoot happen. Thanks to the power of social media, I came across the very talented Irene Recupero of Dolce Vita Events  who was just starting up her wedding planning business. Between us, we managed to source a team of incredible talent to create something quite magical. We were incredibly lucky to be given access to the Ca Sagredo hotel  a 5 star private luxury 18th Century Palazzo overlooking the Venice Grand canal. The colour palette was quickly decided; the grand frescoes by Tiepolo that enrich the hotel, not to mention its opulent furniture, could only be gently accompanied, so we chose ivory, blush, accents of deep green and a hint of gold.

We were blessed with two fabulous gowns from the Zahavit Tshuba’s new collection and perfectly matching René Caovilla’s sandals, which our lovely Venetian student and model Flora Dalle Vacche wore with grace and attitude. She and her actual fiancé Carlo Pitter were the best possible candidates for our shoot, for they instilled their mutual love to it. Everything else, from the hand painted stationery to the glamorous and delicate dessert table to the elegant floral decorations and the glass artworks, topped off by a romantic gondola ride from the hotels very own gondola station were the perfect touches that helped make this timeless Venetian dream come to life.

Following my trip to Venice, I quickly caught the destination bug and have since been lucky to photograph weddings in Turin, Lake Como, Sorrento, Sicily and most recently Ravello for Sophisticated Weddings in Italy. Victoria is a friend from my hometown in the UK who now lives in Italy and runs her luxury wedding planning business in Sorrento, Positano and Ravello. Victoria has over 7 years extensive knowledge on getting hitched in Italy and is native English as well as fluent in Italian which instantly takes the stress out of planning a wedding abroad.
