The romantic marriage proposal organized by David, with the help of the excellent staff of Brilliant Wedding Venice, for his beloved Maria has been marked by an unexpected event! High water! and what high water! the forecasts were much brighter, but then there was a powerful tide. I must say that for me it was the first time that I came across such a situation, and even though I know that for the Venetians it is a hated thing for the inconveniences it brings, I was fascinating to see this phenomenon live! Of course I also had my troubles, because even the shooting of David and Mary scheduled for the morning, was moved in the afternoon … But to see Venice submerged by water and walk with the boots, made me feel a like a little girl in a amusement park ! I bought my beautiful orange emergency and walked to Piazza San Marco and other parts of Venice with a very curious air! In the afternoon, the tide went down, so everything could have resumed normally … The gondolas started moving, the boats transported the people … and finally the surprise marriage proposal organized by David for his beloved Maria could have place! The place chosen to surprise Maria with the banner with the proposal, was the beautiful Ponte Della Canonica, in Sestiere San Marco and very close to the famous Bridge of Sighs. The proposal by David and Mary has been marked by high water and a lot of emotion! The relatives were moved and even Maria cried with emotion! Then we continued the shooting with some portraits in Piazza San Marco! Best wishes guys!
Braunyno and Elisabeth flew from England to Venice for a romantic weekend in the most beautiful city in the world. Braunyno organized with the help of the talented staff of Brilliant Wedding Venice a wonderful surprise wedding proposal for his beloved Elisabeth! During a gondola ride along the wonderful canals of Venice, Elisabeth suddenly saw a banner drop with their photograph and where it was written “Elisabeth do you want to marry me? “The girl’s surprise was incredible and full of happiness! Obviously Elisabeth said yes and Braunyno sealed the proposal with a beautiful ring! Then we continued with a wonderful gondola ride, very beautiful and quiet because by now we were in the late afternoon, and at that time Venice begins to be less full of tourists .. Then we continued our tour in Piazza San Marco, inevitable stage for a couple who comes to Venice for the first time. Here I continued to shoot portraits of the couple in the beautiful Piazza San Marco. Here I also had the wonderful news that Braunyno and Elisabeth are waiting for their first child, a news that fills them with joy and happiness! Really many emotions for these two beautiful guys! 🙂 The portrait service ended with Braunyno and Elisabeth enjoying a fantastic italian ice cream! Best wishes guys for your new life!
Elsa and Angel are a really happy couple from Miami – Florida. I met them for the first time almost 2 years ago, on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of their marriage and the renewal of the vows they held in Venice. They have a special love for Italy and especially for Venice. Elsa and Angel have returned to this fantastic city this year exclusively to experience the special atmosphere that you can breathe during the Carnival! They traveled with their clothes, very anxious and excited to experience Venice with this completely different atmosphere! And so they asked me again months ago, to be their photographer in Venice and I was very happy because in the meantime Elsa and Angel became my dear friends 🙂 The photo shoot started at the Hotel where they stayed, the Rialto Hotel, an Hotel right on the Rialto Bridge, which has a fantastic location to admire even in the evening the famous Bridge. We set off to reach Piazza San Marco, the central point in Venice where thousands of people dressed in masks walk . Here I took some pictures of them and then we took the gondola already booked by Elsa at the Stazio Danieli. During the gondola ride Angel had planned to surprise Elsa with the gift of a ring and in fact the surprise for Elsa was enormous, as well her spectacular expression! After the gondola ride, the couple absolutely wanted to visit Palazzo Contarini and the beautiful Scala Del Bovolo (Scala Contarini Del Bovolo). It is the most beautiful and famous spiral staircase in Venice, 26 meters of wonderful Venetian gothic architecture. A real gem, located near Campo Manin. This is a building that you absolutely can not visit if you go to Venice, really a pure gem! Once you have walked across the whole of the Scala, you get to the top and from there you can admire a view of Venice and the amazing Bell Tower of St Mark! It really deserves! We then concluded the portraits at the Rialto Hotel, to have a shot even in front of the wonderful bridge! thanks Elsa and Angel for the wonderful new adventure and thanks for your invitation to Miami! A special hug dear friends !! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Elsa, after seeing the pictures left me these words :
Venetian Carnival Portraits and Scala Contarini Del Bovolo
The winter season is a very romantic season in Italia, perhaps because of the snow that sometimes covers everything in white, or simply because of the Christmas atmosphere in the air. For these reasons, December and the winter months are a beautiful season to propose to the loved one. Philippe also did so in early December, flying to Venice from Switzerland to ask Valeria to become his wife. Venice is a unique city in the world, romantic in every season, but in my opinion in winter it is at its peak! After organizing an unmissable gondola ride along the calm canals of Venice, passing under a bridge, Valeria found the surprise of Philippe’s proposal printed with their gigantic print! the emotion was enormous for Valeria, who naturally said yes and accepted the ring! After the great moments of joy, Valeria and Philippe ended the service by having some portraits done around Venice. Here you can see some of the photos I’ve done.
Ceylan and Irfan flew from London to Venice exclusively for organizing the surprise wedding proposal in this magic town! Irfan, helped by the excellent staff of Brilliant Wedding Venice, organized a gondola ride with his beloved Ceylan, and then surprisingly, passing under a bridge near the Bridge of Sighs, a poster was dropped with their photograph and the marriage proposal! Huge was the surprise of Ceylan, who, after accepting the ring, answered yes to his beloved Irfan. After the gondola ride, the couple wanted some portraits in the spectacular Piazza San Marco, more marvelous than usual because still decorated with Christmas lights! Here you can see some of the photos I took to Ceylan and Irfan on this very important occasion!
Christmas is one of the most beautiful and magical periods of the year! Even if it is cold, there are still millions of small lights and the decorations to heat the atmosphere! Aurelien has chosen December 23 and the wonderful city of Venice to ask Ruth to become his wife! The chosen setting was the beautiful Sala Della Musica at Cà Sagredo Hotel, in the Cannaregio area. After the surprise proposal and the great emotion of Ruth, the couple toasted with 2 glasses of prosecco and tasted canapes to celebrate the occasion ! The wonderful moment has been closed with some portraits in the other rooms of the Hotel. Here you can see some of the photos I’ve done 🙂
Venice in winter season is a superb choice for a winter proposal ! Venice is not only wonderful in the summer, it is a beautiful city even in winter! And indeed this is the city where Yannick asked his girlfriend Fanny to become his wife. During a romantic gondola ride along the gentle Venetian canals, Fanny read Yannick ‘s wedding proposal in a poster attached to a bridge, which sealed the proposal with the engagement ring! The surprise was immense and really unexpected ! 🙂 and Fanny of course could not say yes! 🙂 Immediately after the proposal we walked around Venice, to make some portraits in some characteristic corners of this beautiful city. The Venice atmosphere also in winter is truly magical, the light that surrounds it is completely different from the summer season, the tones are more soft, the colors are spectacular. Venice is certainly the most romantic city in the world in every season, and it is always the marvelous background of love stories and life.

Alexandre and Camille are a marvelous young couple who came from France to marry in the wonderful town of Venice! With them, their parents and also their fantastic two year old child ! Alexandre and Camille chose to have a very intimate ceremony. It is very nice to see how each couple, depending on their personality, decides to get married in a different way … some people want a lot of friends and relatives around, there are those who decide to get married alone, maybe only with their children …. It is very nice to see how people’s personality is reflected in wedding choices. After the ceremony at Palazzo Cavalli, Alexandre and Camille wanted some portraits around Venice with their fantastic little girl ! 🙂 The first toast like husband and wife was made at the Taverna La Fenice – Venice, Sestiere San Marco area. Congratulations to the new family and I wish you all a wonderful life together!
