Italian Castle Wedding

An Italian Castle Wedding

Rob and Adrienne’s Italian wedding was held at Odescalchi Castle, a stunning venue within easy reach of Genoa airport. The couple both live and work in Dubai and contacted me to see if I’d be up for flying out to shoot their wedding…of course I was!

Rob and Adrienne are a beautiful couple. They were easy to get to know, and the day flowed seamlessly from the preparations to the outdoor ceremony (oh the heat!) to the amazing speeches in the enormous dining room. The girls were getting ready within the castle grounds, a few large vaulted rooms away from where the boys were preparing themselves for the ceremony. She looked stunning in her dress. There were tears before she left the room when a bridesmaid appeared with the most romantic letter from Rob and though I’ve no idea what the letter contained, I may have shed a tear or two at the time, I was so moved.

It was my first destination wedding at Odescalchi Castle (I’ve been back since) and I couldn’t have asked for a better bunch of people to work with, all so welcoming and such fun to be around. I was treated like a guest and though the heat was hard to work in, I had a ball!

The dancing went on into the night in the refreshing outdoor air. The dance floor was full all night long. The most fabulous wedding! Thank you both for having me cover your day. And congratulations again.
