Then you have plenty of option to “enrich” the surprise and make the anniversary unforgettable. Some husbands or wives book luxurious hotel in Venice for a very comfortable stay; others look for special restaurants to dine with their sweetheart; others might even hire traditional Venetian Carnival costumes for an amusing experience and perhaps get captured in creative couple portraits, etc.
A loving couple I lately met chose to celebrate their wedding anniversary in a way that fitted their style: they wanted quietness, loneliness and time for themselves in an enchanting environment.
This is why they booked a professional anniversary photo service at dawn. We met in San Marco Square at sunrise and made the most of the quiet environment. The couple walked in the empty square, under the arcades of Palazzo Ducale, kissed and hugged feeling extremely at ease as they could enjoy maximum privacy at this time of the day. They sat down next to the sea to admire the lagoon’s and the nearby islands’ beauty. They even relaxed for a while on the empty chairs of a still closed café.
The couple photographs shot at this time show their mature, self-confident and trustful love. The nervous, super-excited expressions so typical of wedding or engagement photos are not there: at their place one finds serene, satisfied and happy looks. We then made a short tour of some secret spots in Venice to get a few more passionate couple portraits which even better show the couple’s strong feelings and joy. Indeed their fulfilled expressions well portray the kind of success every married couple would like to achieve: intense love and harmony after many years.
