This is our first wedding video made at Lake Garda. We were very excited by this opportunity because every environment creates a different inspiration for us. Our work and main objective is making the wedding video which always requires a new concept and inspiration of the location.
To see this location and get to know the couple before the wedding we left very early. I was in the city of Sirmione few years ago but I didn`t remember that it was such a picturesque location. This castle is very fascinating and it extends out in this strip of land that enters into Lake Garda.
The whole event was followed by Victoria Donkina, a talented wedding planner of Russian origin who organizes fairytale weddings throughout Italy and abroad. It ‘s always a pleasure to work with her because of the serenity with which she faces every event and all the possible problems that may occur during the day. She’s very professional and always ready to solve any problem calmly and with a nice smile.
After having examined the location during a beautiful sunny day, we went to our hotel to get some rest as the day of the filming was supposed to be very long.
When we woke up in the morning an unexpected surprise was waiting for us. The fog filled up the sky and the visibility of the previous day was reduced by 95%. It was impossible to distinguish the horizon and the grayish color of the lake from the grayish color of the sky. We felt very bad about it thinking that this was unlucky for us as we wouldn’t be able to exploit the potential of this exclusive location, but we were wrong. The light rain and the grayish colors actually began to offer us some very interesting and unexpected colors that created a charm of rays of the light and the gray colors which inspired us all in a completely unexpected way.
We saw that the bride stood out beautifully and the fog worked like a soft box photo inside the apartment creating a soft and gentle light that brought out the beauty of the couple.
All the specific details from the bride and the groom were very elegant in style and you could see the delicacy of their feelings to each other. It was a very intimate event with about 15 guests and the preparation of the couple took place in a very picturesque location called Villa Pioppi Sirmione from where we moved by boat driven by a very nice boatman toward the location of the ceremony.
I think it is one of the most beautiful locations we have ever been to. We liked working there very much at the famous Villa Borghese located on the Island of Garda. The Villa is very particular and unique because of the its architecture and gardens which creates an excellent place for a fairytale wedding. When we arrived to the island the sky was clear and allowed the sun to make us a beautiful gift showing us all the colors that this location has to offer.
We are very happy that the wedding video turned out the way it did and got the quality that it deserved. We made a video highlights as we usually do and this time it’s a trailer. We wanted to show only the emotions and the beauty of the place leaving behind some details of the event and the guests. We also made a complete video of the wedding where all the details of the wedding day were included.
