Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

Here the couple is celebrating the ceremony in the panoramic terrace called Rivellino.  The panorama is breathtaking, only the sky and the lake that merge into a single color, the blue.

Gabriela and Martin chose the Scaliger Castle of Malcesine for their wedding, a wonderful castle with a breathtaking view of the lake. Gabriela and Martin got ready at the Wellness Hotel Casa Barca in Malcesine.

The wedding took place on a cloudy and very windy day in late September. It was a very intimate and exciting ceremony, without guests, only the two of them and the wonder of the place to accompany this intimate moment. Gabriela and Martin reached the foot of the castle with a beautiful blue Ape Calessino, as much as the road, and very uphill to reach the top of the castle!

After the ceremony, the couple wanted portraits in the Scaligero Di Malcesine Castle and then we walked through the streets of the center of Malcesine, crowded with many tourists given the season. Having a castle and Lake Garda all by itself was certainly wonderful!
