A stunning wedding at Hotel Royal Victoria on Lake Como but the story of how Jen and Tom booked me to capture their Italy wedding started even before I started wedding photography. Jen even recommended my first wedding back in 2010! I worked in the local pub where they met and knew them both separately.

The ceremony was in Bellagio at the Town Hall followed by a wander through the backstreets of Bellagio before boarding the ferry to Varenna for the reception.

Drinks flowed on the banks of the river into the evening where Jen and Tom surprised everyone with a silent disco. Such a brilliant idea!!
We partied back in Bellagio till the small hours in a local restaurant drinking gin and feasting on fantastic local pizza!!
Jen and Tom have a few words on how they met and how Tom proposed.
Our paths crossed in our local, your old place of work, The 3 Stags on The Wirral.
I decided to ask the question during a surprise trip for Jens 30th birthday.
Having completed hours of research trying to find the perfect destination I finally decided on Bellagio, Lake Como, Italy.
On the second day of our trip and the day before Jens 30th birthday I had a day exploring the lake planned, finishing at Villa Melzi as Bellagio, which is situated with the most amazing views over the lake.
After a short walk admiring the gardens at Villa Melzi we found the perfect spot to take a few pictures or so Jen thought! So the GoPro was set up and with Jen completely unaware, enjoying the views, she turned to find me on one knee with a ring in hand!
We decided to return to the place of the proposal, Bellagio, Lake Como and found a venue which allowed our wedding party to enjoy the picturesque views over the lake from early afternoon till late at night.
