Intimate Venice wedding at Scuola Grande dei Carmini
Amongst the many beautiful palaces in Venice, there is a special one for weddings, especially for elopements. If you are going to look for an impressive wedding location in Venice, Scuola Grande dei Carmini will exceed your expectations. It is indeed, very popular in the wedding industry. As a Venice wedding photographer, I had the opportunity to capture several weddings as well as elopements there. Being a Venice wedding photographer gets me often very emotional about love stories. This wedding at Scuola Grande dei Carmini is a special one.
Every little girl, when daydreaming about her wedding day, falls in love with the idea of a fairytale wedding. Something like a majestic castle with fairytale arrangements. Venice in fact, with all its history and its unique beauty, can superbly fit this conception. I’m sure any other Venice photographer would agree with me. What is important to mention though, is the importance of the light. To put it differently, what is the best time to have the photoshoot taken? In order to get the very best results of a photography experience in Venice, I always give the best advice to my couples. Indeed, what I strongly recommended to Amber and Ali was to have a morning photo shoot the following day of the wedding. Taking advantage of the very best light as well as the uncrowded places. So we did it.
As you will see, the getting ready part of the bride as well as the first part of the wedding reception, took place at the Westin Europa (today’s St.Regis luxury hotel). What’s more, the next morning we met at San Marco’s square and there the magic happened. It is important to say that the early morning meeting is good not only for a post-wedding photoshoot. In fact, the morning is the perfect time for any other type of photo shoot. For example, an engagement, anniversary or honeymoon photo session.
“I booked Samantha for our August 2017 wedding in Venice. I was looking for a fine art photographer that could capture the beauty of the city in addition to the most romantic moments of our lives. Then I started looking online and on Instagram for a photographer that could deliver the style we were looking for to tell the story of our love. No one could have done it better than Samantha.
Her work speaks for itself – absolutely incredible. When planning a destination wedding, a lot of the communication is done online and she was always available to answer questions and concerns about the big day and was completely professional and kind from beginning to end. Our photos are stunning. You will not find a better photographer. We are so lucky to have found her.“
