Villa Dei Cipressi, Destination Wedding Photography on Lake Garda, Italy.
As a wedding photographer, when you get invited to the North of Italy, more specifically Lake Garda, to photograph a wedding at the stunning Villa Dei Cipressi, it’s pretty hard not to do a little happy dance. Add in some incredible planning by the very lovely Mountian Weddings and throw in one of the nicest couples you’re likely to meet – I’m in! No questions asked. I’m there to party! *grabs passport and books flights instantly*
Villa Dei Cipressi is not only a wedding venue, but primarily a wine resort in the tiny Italian village of Sonar, on the edge of Lake Garda. Need I say more? Perfect place for a wedding – Yes, I think so!
Villa Dei Cipressi is situated up on a hill, so the views of the surrounding landscapes are stunning and with an olive grove for an outdoor wedding ceremony, there’s not much you can’t love as a destination photographer travelling to Italy. If you want a buzzing atmosphere for your wedding, it’s ready-made. All the bridal party and guests can stay there, so everyone is in one location and it means that you can almost guarantee the atmosphere for an incredible wedding – it’s going to be off-the-charts good.
Kim + Cory – the epic bride and groom!
Now, the two beautiful humans that are, Kim & Cory.
I first met Cory as a newbie to Crossfit a few years ago. I trained in the next-door lane to him and he was always a super lovely guy. Put me to shame pretty much every time as he beasted me up and down the Crossfit rig, but still a nice guy. Kim, I’d not met properly before, so it was awesome to finally get to know her before we flew to Italy. Her reputation as being amazing didn’t disappoint. She made me feel so welcome at every opportunity and was a real pleasure to hang out with before and during the wedding. We had drinks and ate pizza at their pre-wedding pizza party and chatted lot’s about the day to come ahead.
Their loveliness was embodied through their friends and family too and we had such an awesome time on their wedding day, despite the rain in the afternoon. But still, it gave everyone a chance to realise that a napkin makes an awesome wearable umbrella/hair protector while we finished speeches outside in the courtyard.
Thank you for tsking me to Italy!
Guys, thanks so much for an amazing few days with you and for trusting me enough to fly me to Italy to be your destination wedding photographer. I’m truly grateful, and I hope that looking back at the photos fills you with all the feels you had on the wedding day!
Here’s a few of our wedding highlights. Turn it up LOUD, and enjoy!!
