Nicola and Chris arrived from England to Venice, a wonderful city they chose to celebrate their wedding with around 30 guests. The chosen place for the wedding is one of the most beautiful and evocative places in Venice, the historic Palazzo di Cà Sagredo, a national monument dating back to the fifteenth century. Needless to say, upon entering this luxurious hotel, it seems to enter history, you can even admire paintings by Tiepolo and the view of the Grand Canal is priceless.

Chris got ready in one of the suites of Palazzo Cà Sagredo and the ceremony took place on the noble floor of the hotel, impeccably set up for the event. The wedding lunch was instead held in the Sala Della Musica, a golden and precious room, where there are many frescoes by Gaspare Diziani and which completely cover the walls and ceiling.

Nicola and Chris, after the exciting ceremony, wanted to take an intimate gondola ride for the first portraits as husband and wife. For the few guests, they then prepared a beautiful surprise, the party was organized onboard a vintage galleon that would have gently sailed through the Venice Lagoon with dancing, music, beer, and much more! Surprised guests were brought in taxis aboard the Venetian Galleon! Navigating the lagoon gently for hours at sunset, Nicola and Chris celebrated their wedding with all their loved ones. To cut the cake, the galleon then stopped in front of Piazza San Marco illuminated by the evening lights, in a dream atmosphere!
