Destination Wedding in Lugano Switzerland: from California to Ticino for a very romantic and intimate wedding

Imagine celebrating your wedding on a private villa by a Swiss Italian Lake. Doesn’t it sound like the most romantic celebration? This was the mood for this very beautiful and intimate wedding in Lugano, Ticino, Switzerland. My wonderful clients, who came from California, decided to tie the knot in this beautiful place, and surrounded themselves with their closest friends and family. The party was fun and filled with emotions. The dance floor was prepared in an outdoor terrace with the gorgeous view of lake Lugano and the flower decorations were simple and stunning: just like good italian food!.

Wedding photographer Lugano, Tessin: lovers dancing under the Swiss rain

What a fun way to start my weekend. I had the pleasure today to meet an amazing couple who’s wedding in Lugano at Principe Leopoldo I have the honor to photograph later this year. We planned our shooting months in advance thinking about a sunny shoot (because of course, it is always sunny in Tessin! LOL), but the sky gave us this romantic rain as a gift and I could not thank enough for it. It was a while since my last rainy shoot so I could not wait for the next.

As a wedding photographer, I feel very blessed when couples like them choose me to tell their love story. And I feel very inspired when I feel like being around friends, just playing with light and moments, and telling love stories in between.

Engagement sessions are a fun way to meet my clients before their wedding. We meet, we share our stories, laugh, and in this occasion even dance under the rain!

Can’t wait to be their wedding photographer in Lugano this May! It’ll be an amazingly romantic event, with their family and friends coming from different parts of the world and mostly from Australia. This got me even more excited, since I loved the first Australian wedding I photographed. So, I can reassure you that this wedding will be amazingly beautiful!

Thank you so much Monica and Lachlan for the amazing time today!

Enjoy a small preview from our fun session,

XO and much love,

A Swiss-Canadian Destination wedding in Ascona full of sun, fun, emotions and much much love!

I had the honor to document the wedding of a super sweet and amazing Swiss-Canadian couple at the marvelous Eden Roc hotel in Ascona, Switzerland last year.

It was such a warm sunny day and the wedding was so much fun. The groom started the day with a ski session by the lake followed by a nice lunch with all his friends, while the bride enjoyed her getting ready and an emotional toast with tasty-looking hours d’oeuvres at The Eden Roc in Ascona. The beautiful couple celebrated their ecclesiastic wedding at the beautiful San Pietro e Paolo church and then walked to enjoy a relaxing aperitivo at the hotel’s deck with the view of Lake Maggiore.

The party was full of dancing, and the crowd was very interesting since their friends joined from different corners of the world. It was so amazing to meet their families and friends and they made us feel like family too, which was very touching. We really enjoyed shooting this romantic Swiss wedding!

Enjoy the photos, XO,
