From the photographer:
Italy is a country that combines the diversity of architecture and magnificent landscapes. Of course it’s also a perfect place for a wedding celebration! This wonderful bride and groom are an international couple from the United Kingdom and Ukraine. They had spent their first weekend together as a couple in the Lake Como region and fell in love with its beauty. While planning their wedding day, they had no doubt that this would be their venue.
Oksana had organized a lot of things from her home in London, and on the wedding day their Italian coordinator helped to make sure everything came together perfectly. The bride created her own gown, wanting a combination of elegance and airiness. The ceremony was held at the beautiful Relais Villa Vittoria,with its stunning view of the Lake. The couple saved their first look for the ceremony, surrounded by family and close friends. Their ceremony was one of most impressive in my experience, with the violin and harp emphasizing the specialness of the moment.
In order to capture some wonderful images after the ceremony, the couple decided to head over to Villa Balbianello. We were blessed by the fact that the best way to get there was via water taxi. We headed out as the sun was beginning to set, creating some truly magical light. It allowed me to capture pictures on the way their against the gorgeous background, as well as at the stunning villa.
