Danny & Siobhan get married in Italy.

As wedding destinations go, Malcesine in Italy is a wonderful choice of location.

The old town of Malcesine is famous for the Scaglieri castle perched on a cliff overhanging the lake. Its the main feature here on the leading picture in this post.
The castle is believed to have been built in 568 ad. A maze of narrow, winding streets leads down to the water’s edge.
The focal point of Malcesine is the pretty port. Behind the town is Monte Baldo, which is the highest mountain in the Lake Garda area.

Danny and Siobhan’s wedding took place on the outside terrace of the Castle.  The terrace with its  breathtaking views over Lake Garda and the medieval town of Melcesine below were stunning to behold and to photograph.

When Siobhan first got in contact about the possibilty of me flying out from Belfast to this stunning location to photograph their wedding, I was, to say the least a little bit excited. Smug also, when sitting outside a restaurant on the balmy Friday evening before the wedding, eating pizza with a nice bottle of Soave and listening to a good friend on the phone from Belfast asking, where are you, what’s with the international dialing tone? then being able to reply, “ack , I’m just in Italy here, photographing a wedding” filled me with a great contentment about my choice of Job.

The sun shone and shone and shone the next day. Danny and Siobhan where as bright as buttons,  tears of joy were shed, the ramparts of the old castle tower echoed with the sound of laughter and in the evening we celebrated to very late. The next morning we departed with sore heads. Thank you Danny and Siobhan.
