Also captured by Sidney Diongzon in his uniquely beautiful style, the incredible setting of Malcesine Castle made for the most sensational, romantic, and breathtaking backdrop.

This adorable couple, spent their intimate day surrounded by their closest friends and family, taking in the idyllic cobbled streets around Lake Garda, enjoying a scenic boat ride, then feasting on exquisite Italian cuisine.

Our Wedding

Our wedding was a small Italian-style day with 50 guests. Very relaxed with plenty of food and drink.

We had our ceremony at Malcesine Castle on the edge of Lake Garda, at 5pm with string quartet. Following this, we had canapes and Champagne in the castle grounds.

We then walked our way through the Italian streets to a little harbour where we boarded a boat to take us to our choice of restuarant, Alla Fassa, which was 20 minutes away. Here we had a beautiful 5 course meal and disco ’til midnight.

After this, our guests had a choice of returning with us to Malcesine to continue celebrations at the lake side bar Oasi for cocktails.

Ceremony Reading

Love is Patient, Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

The Reception

The decor was very minimal just lanterns on the tables, with pink rose petals and a few clear crystal gems. We also had paper lanterns on the floor leading into restaurant.

We had canapes and Champagne at castle. Followed by five-course meal of mixed starters, mushroom rissotto, fish, steak with peppercorn sauce, and mixed mini desserts. Plus traditional Italian wedding cake.

Advice for Other Couples

We would highly recommend getting married abroad, it’s far cheaper and the scenery was just stunning. It was very relaxed and our planner Pam Barrack from Romantic Weddings on Lake Garda was amazing.

Sidney Diongzon had stunningly beautiful previous work, loved the way he and Joanne captured weddings in the videography.

Isn’t it just spectacular? You don’t need any big DIY projects or ornate decor when a setting is that epic. And the photographs capture it so beautifully, don’t they?
