Some couples choose Venice as their destination of their wedding and make it a very intimate event, almost escaping (or postponing) the celebrations with relatives.
Other couples really enjoy sharing the magic and excitement of this special day with their dear ones. This was the case of Matt and Sarah, a British-Italian couple that lately chose me as their wedding photographer.
Is happiness a matter of a few, magic moments or is it rather a life-long blessing? When meeting this young, passionate couple, that hired me for an engagement photo service in Venice, I had the impression it could be both at the same time.
The wedding proposal had been delivered the day before and , thanks God, accepted. Therefore, I could only imagine the future bride struck with surprise and the would be husband first struggling against his nerves and, later on, overwhelmed with excitement, as it is usually the case in surprise wedding proposals.
Just-engaged couples seem to shine. It might be the expectation of a bright future ahead or just the sweet taste of beginning together a new chapter of their life, they always carry a special light with them. Sometimes they are able to light up a grey autumn day, sometimes they seem to shine together with the surrounding environment. Engagement photographers make the most of this unique situation.
Autumn rain is pouring over Venice these days and calls to mind several passionate photo services I made for couples that chose to marry in the city during this season and were able to make love shine over the clouds.
One of them was a very elegant couple that planned an intimate wedding: just two couples of relatives and the wedding photographer in charge to capture the magic of the day attended the ceremony. This gave them the opportunity to savor each moment of the day without any kind of stress or hurry, focusing only on their feeling and the uniqueness of the event.
