Intimate Venice wedding at Scuola Grande dei Carmini
Every little girl, when daydreaming about her wedding day, falls in love with the idea of a fairytale wedding, in a majestic castle with fairytale arrangements. Venice, with all its history and its unique beauty, can superbly fit this conception.
A British-American couple in the most romantic city with the dream to fulfil a great love with an intimate and extraordinary ceremony. Amber and Ali chose the eternal city of lovers for a small intimate destination wedding with such impressive background. The bride, in my opinion Adele’s looklike, got ready at the Westin Europa and Regina in a beautiful suite overlooking the Canal Grande, just in front of one of the most beautiful churches on the island, Santa Maria della Salute. Enjoying the company of her mom, sisters and aunts, Amber didn’t manage to hold back her emotions and excitement.
The ceremony took place at the Scuola Grande dei Carmini, a stunning baroque oratory built at the end of the 500’s. Delicate harp notes, tears full of emotions, touching readings… such moving ceremony! The first part of the reception took place outside their suite at the Westin Europa and Regina, on a balcony, surrounded by the family and a few close friends.
‘’ I booked Samantha for our August 2017 wedding in Venice. I was looking for a fine art photographer that could capture the beauty of the city in addition to the most romantic moments of our lives. I started looking online and on Instagram for a photographer that could deliver the style we were looking for to tell the story of our love. No one could have done it better than Samantha. Her work speaks for itself – absolutely incredible. When planning a destination wedding, a lot of the communication is done online and she was always available to answer questions and concerns about the big day and was completely professional and kind from beginning to end. Our photos are stunning. You will not find a better photographer. We are so lucky to have found her. ‘’
