Armenian wedding at San Lazzaro degli Armeni in Venice
There is nothing more beautiful than shooting a luxury Armenian wedding at San Lazzaro degli Armeni and Hotel Excelsior in Venice. I still remember my first time at hotel Excelsior as a Venice wedding photographer. I was shooting this Jewish wedding. Among the many wedding venues in Venice, Hotel Excelsior is undoubtedly one of the most exclusive. It is in fact, amongst the most appreciated destinations for wedding celebrations in Venice.
What are the most luxurious wedding venues in Venice? Being a Venice wedding photographer offers me the opportunity to work at some of the most famous wedding locations on water such as:
- Hotel Danieli
- Scuola Grande dei Carmini
- Ca’ Sagredo
- Hotel Belmond Cipriani
- Ca’ Nigra
- Sina Centurion Palace
- St. Regis luxury hotel
- Ca’ Zenobio
- last but not least, Hotel Excelsior Venice
Located on the beach of the Lido, you can get to this exclusive hotel from San Marco in 15 minutes by boat. Its location is mostly known as the location of the very well-known Venice Film Festival. In fact, if you stay there in September you might see some famous faces there.
The ceremony took place at the island of San Lazzaro degli Armeni. I was already familiar with the church. I got familiar with this suggestive Armenian church when I got hired as a Venice wedding photographer at this Armenian wedding. After the wedding ceremony, we took advantage of the terrace on the island, to take some nice photos. This, before heading to San Giorgio Island and the Bridge of Sighs.
The icing on the cake was not the fireworks at the end of the evening, nor the majestic wedding cake. The real surprise was the performance of one of the greatest singers: Al Bano. This luxurious wedding has truly been a memorable wedding!
As mentioned previously, a wedding in Venice is an exclusive as well as a unique experience. If you consider Venice as your wedding or elopement destination, look no further!
