Verona Italy Wedding

Emma & Andrew // Pt 1

/ Verona / Italy

It’s not often you get to spend 3 days on a destination wedding in Italy with friends.

I say friends, I’ve never met Emma & Andrew before we headed out to Verona, they’re all the way from Australia! But after travelling most of northern Italy with them and sharing so many laughs and experiences together we parted good friends. Check out their heart felt testimonial they gave me.

This collection of photos are just from the first day, the wedding day. Emma & Andrew found the most idyllic location for their wedding and only having immediate family and a few close friends it was impossible not to get caught up in all the emotion.

La Finestra Sul Fiume is a small charming farm house nestled next to a broad  flowing river, trout splashing about, and to top it all Valeggio’s towers giving you the perfect backdrop. The river was pretty warm, I know this as I ended up in there to get the optimum perspective for a late night portrait, ok, I’m just crazy.

Several small islands created the setting for the ceremony, these were flanked by smaller streams provided a soothing trickle sound during the service. Cats would wonder around trying their luck to grab some cheese or just to find a lap to sit on. It was perfect!

I was lucky enough to have a great friend Jason Prezant with me helping out, he flew in from Delaware in US just for the wedding, yes, he’s crazy! Below is a selection from both of us.

Great fun getting around on golf carts, these things were barely driveable, made it more exciting!
