Scaligeri Castle in Malcesine is a very charming wedding venue. It is famous for its heritage and for the beauty of its breathtaking views over Lake Garda. But I can say that Christian and Laura’s wedding made me love this venue more than ever!
I met Christian and Laura one year prior to their wedding. We shared ideas, tips and solutions for their special wedding day. White and green were main colors of their flowers arrangements and sweetness was the essence of their souls.
Getting ready in a modern hotel in the heart of Malcesine Village
Laura and her bridesmaids chose a hotel in the centre of Malcesine for their getting ready. The atmosphere was relaxed and thanks to fantastic lake view, they could have fantastic photos in natural colors. After getting ready, a nice walk throughout the center of ancient hamlet lead Laura and her dad to Malcesine Castle where the ceremony was planned.
Bridal bouquet was arranged with white hydrangeas, peonies, English roses and touches of summer sage. The perfect harmony between flowers and nuances of the lake water made the arrangment particularly refined.
Wedding ceremony in Malcesine Castle
The sound of a harp accompanied bride’s grand entrance. Bridesmaids made their entrance before her and the setting of the ceremony was simply breathtaking. The terrace of Malcesine Castle offrs unique panorama.
White flowers hanging from chairs decorated the aisle making the setting even more romantic.
After the ceremony in Malcesine Castle, Christian and Laura planned a little tour of the castle so that they could have a fantastic wedding photos. The romantic kiss on the famous tiny balcony perched over the lake is for sure one of the most romantic and iconic moments of the day.
A modern restaurant lake front for a chic wedding reception
For the dinner with their relatives and friends, Christian and Laura chose a lake front restaurant with a smattering of a modern atmosphere.
Floral decorations ran the along the imperial tables, interrupted by high candelsticks. Bunches of white hydrangeas and summer sage alternated with modern lanterns while here and there, lots of tea-lights in tiny glasses give verve to the overall result.
Table chart was made up of lovely bottles of Limoncello del Garda, a delicious traditional lemon-flavoured liqueur of the area. As the matter of fact Christian and Laura wanted to give a little souvenir to all their guests.
In front of the restaurant there is a little beach and here we thought to arrange the cutting of the cake, just by the shores. So romantic!
Lots of candles in the gloaming, the dark waters of the lake encrusted with twinkly lights: it was really a magic moment!
Then it was time for dancing. It was up to Christian and Laura to get the party started! The Dj used different kinds of music in order to meet different tastes and have everybody dance and have fun.
A big thank-you to the photographer Chris Thornton and to the videographer Riccardo Lavezzo for their great job!
But a very special thanks goes to Christian and Laura for sharing with us their big day on Lake Garda.
