Elegant St. Mark´s Square Venice Pre-Wedding Photoshoot

The inspiration came from the love that our young couple has for Venice, love for fashion, and from the glorious 15th century white clock tower, facing into St. Mark’s Square which is still ringing today. Its great facade in blue enamel background with stars, made us decide to go bold & glamourous.

Our pre-wedding photoshoot began at St. Mark´s Square capturing Sofia and Ludwig in front of the Basilica while the sparkling gold-encrusted mosaic facade reflected the sunrise light and under the marvelous ornate Venetian Gothic Style arches of Palazzo Ducale.

We followed the sun all along in the city following the precious advice of our event stylist & planner who knows perfectly every hidden Venetian gem. A Gondola ride was planned beneath the Bridge of Sigh where a timeless legend believes that if a couple kisses while drifting under the bridge and the St. Mark’s bell tower ring out, it will enjoy eternal love.

For Sofia was made a sophisticated yet natural makeup and hairstyling, perfectly complimented with a statement headpiece, wowed in an amazing midnight blue ombré glittering evening gown, enhanced by a fabulous lush and colorful bridal bouquet. Ludwig in his black tuxedo looked amazingly elegant as well.

The matching stationery set features a bespoke sketch of the Rialto Bridge and the save the date is a unique silver-engraved on black acrylic plate. This memorable day entirely captured by our fine art wedding photographer ended with luxury private motor-launch ride along the Canal Grande, “the most beautiful street in the world”.
