Villa Valmarana ai Nani is a beautiful house overlooking Vicenza, in Veneto, just a short distance from Venice and its beauties. Vicenza is the city of Palladio, a great Italian architect who has left his mark in most of the lovely historic centre. Even if little known abroad, Vincenza is a beautiful city, rich in art and history, and it’s worth a visit. FYI, I had never seen the venue and the town before. Now I couldn’t’ wait to come back there for another Wedding in Italy!
The groom got ready in an Airbnb in the city centre, just a few steps from the Palladian Basilica and Piazza Dei Signori, real Vicenza icons in the world. The bride got ready with her bridesmaids at the Villa, and, as soon as she wore her dress, she ran into the church to marry her groom, who watched her walk through the aisle among hundreds of guests.
A moving ceremony, embellished with solemn vows in an enchanting location. Shortly after that, I led the newlyweds and the wedding party among the streets of the centre. I took most of the couple portraits and photos with the bridesmaids and groomsmen by the Palladian Basilica, which provided me with the perfect backgrounds. I couldn’t get better!
After the photos, the bride and groom reached their guests at Villa Valmarana ai Nani. Families and friends greeted them warmly, with toasts and celebrations. Dinner had been set up in the garden, with tables rich in flowers and decorations. I shot the speech of the father of the bride, the best man, and the maid of honour who moved the guests and made them smile. The fastest cutting of the cake ever, and it was time to dance and celebrate. I greeted them at night, still excited for the beautiful Villa Valmarana Wedding. Here are some photos!
