Holly and Matt were married in Malcesine in May of 2018. Lake Garda is a magnificent backdrop for a wedding celebration, and Matt and Holly made full use of the scenery throughout their wedding day which included a ceremony in Malcesine Castle, a boat trip around the lake and then a reception on the lakefront at one of my favourite restaurants, La Volglia. I’ve documented many weddings around Lake Garda as a Malcesine Wedding Photographer
and this day was yet another fond memory for me! Now for some words from Holly and Matt…
“Our foremost concern whilst planning our wedding was to ensure that our guests had a great time, particularly as we were asking them to travel quite a distance to be there with us. We, therefore, spent a lot of time considering the food, drink and merriment!
For both of us though, our photographs were hugely important as we wanted something to take away after the day. We were also lucky enough to have one of our friends film the day and he has subsequently created the most stunning video too. In company with the photographs, we hope that it will keep all the wonderful memories we have fresh in our minds.
Having both worked in events over the years, we were astonished by how quickly the day snuck up on is. Particularly if you are having a destination wedding, our biggest piece of advice would be to have all the wedmin finished BEFORE you step foot on the plane. Despite thinking that we had been very thorough and organised in advance, we still felt we had last minute jobs to do when we arrived and we would have loved to check in and just relax with our family and friends before the big day.
As a conclusion, relish every second as it’s the greatest thing you’ll ever do.
Love from the Bride & Groom xxx” – Holly and Matt
Lovely words from Holly and Matt:
“We got married in May 2018 in Northern Italy. We really struggled to find a photographer with a bride who doesn’t like having her picture taken and a groom who is very particular about the style of photographs!! Plus, with only 30 wedding guests we wanted someone who would fit in amongst our closest friends and family.
The moment we hung up from our initial meeting with Barney on Skype, we looked at each other and said: “he’s the one!” (A little cheesy but actually did happen!) This is one of the best decisions we made.
Barney is a lovely human. He is professional, friendly and expertly organised. From his invaluable advice during the wedding planning stage, through to his absolute efficiency on the day, he captured the mood of our wedding perfectly. As one person, he didn’t seem to miss a thing. He has the ability to be in all places at all the right times!
To all future brides and grooms, you’re in safe hands and we couldn’t recommend Barney enough.”
