Winter wedding at Scuola Grande dei Carmini | Venice

Thinking about the best locations for weddings or elopements in Venice, what first comes to my mind is definitely Scuola Grande dei Carmini! I have kept Whitney and Greg’s destination wedding unpublished by far for some reason but, since their first-anniversary date is getting closer, I think this is the right time to show you their love story! As a Venice wedding photographer I often have the chance to see many beautiful places as well as amazing people. This wedding at Scuola Grande dei Carmini in fact, gave me the opportunity of being the Venice wedding photographer of such a sweet couple.

One year has passed since that super cold and moody day in Venice when we met Greg at Palazzina G. Whitney was getting ready upstairs alone; the first part of their wedding day was dedicated solely to these lovebirds. In fact, the first look on a dock overlooking the Grand canal was a mixture of excitement and deep feeling. I still remember the cold during this wedding photoshoot reaching the San Marco area!

A moody touch was given by a not thick fog. It was a pleasure to portray this gorgeous couple in San Marco’s square and the shore, enjoying the charming view on San Giorgio island surrounded by many gondolas. Here the fog made its magic. Of course, despite the super cold, a gondola ride couldn’t miss as the icing on the cake so there we met Lele, the very best gondolier who took us among the beautiful Venetian palaces situated behind Doge’s Palace. The tour ended passing under the Bridge of Sighs. Once back at Palazzina G, the couple met their families and friends.

As mentioned many times before, the well-known Scuola Grande dei Carmini is one of the most attractive wedding ceremony venues for destination weddings and elopements in Venice. In fact, its ancient frescoes painted by Giambattista Tiepolo, a famous Venetian painter, make this old oratory among the top three favorite venues chosen to tie the knot. And this is where their intimate ceremony has been held.

In conclusion, there are a lot of reasons why I love being a Venice wedding photographer. A few are, I get to meet new people and build connections, consequently I get to work with some incredible vendors and I can tap into my creative side daily! But one of the many perks is being able to visit some magical places. Scuola Grande dei Carmini is absolutely one of them!
