The intimacy of village and the calm of the waters and the special view make it perfect for an elopement far from the stress of the city. Lisa and Joe chose the beginning of Fall for their special event and the final result was magic. They were blessed with a wonderful warm sunny day and a fantastic landscape to admire.
A very special thanks to Independent Pictures for these romantic wedding photos!
A Roman Catholic Ceremony at Sacro Monte di Orta
After getting ready in a small hotel in the center of Orta village Lisa and Joe reached the church of Sacro Monte above Orta.
Lisa really wanted a Roman Catholic ceremony and she chose Sacro Monte church for its simplicity, its beautiful view and the surrounding nature of the park around it.
We were pleased to be their witnesses for the ceremony. It was more than moving!!
Lisa wore a silvery gown with a romantic updo that suit her perfectly.
She wanted a full red roses bridal bouquet and she tied around it her late father’s rosary.
That was really a lovely touch.
A very romantic and intimate Fall elope on Lake Orta
After the ceremony we all enjoyed the special view of the Lake from the yard in front of the church and Lisa and Joe had a little walk around the part of Sacro Monte for fantastic photos.
Autumn leaves on the floor and colourful trees and bushes made the atmosphere just dreamy!
They got back to the village for some other enchanting photos with a very special light you can only get in an Autumn afternoon.
They enjoyed a lovely boat trip afterwards to reach their celebratory meal restaurant to enjoy a wonderful meal with a view. Weather was good enough in Autumn to let them enjoy an outdoor celebratory meal!
Lake Orta is beautiful all year and it is the ideal destination for a fun wedding but even for a very romantic elope like the one Lisa and Joe chose.
