We had the most incredible wedding day and are still pinching ourselves that it has now been and gone! Our day was designed to be elegant, timeless, romantic, full of love and fun; and that is exactly what it was! We woke to bright sunshine and birds chirping on a beautiful spring day. After spending the morning with our bridal party, we shared personalised vows we had written for each other in the stunning glass chapel. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed champagne and canapes in the garden and were surprised by a magician while we spent some quality time with our bridal party taking photos. The reception was an absolute blast and all the guests were on the dancefloor! It was such a fun and emotional day, we couldn’t stop smiling and wish we could do it again 🙂
If we could do it all again, we’d tell ourselves…
Don’t leave any tasks for the week before the wedding which can be done earlier. We were finalising our speech for the reception and perfecting our first dance on the night before the wedding. The few days prior to the wedding are very busy with appointments and so doing these things in advance would have helped us to feel a little bit more relaxed right before the big day! We otherwise wouldn’t change anything about our day, we were so lucky to have such a perfect wedding.
If we could offer any advice to future couples it would be…
Make sure you select a killer bridal party! You don’t realize until the big day arrives how much you need them. We both had so much fun with our bridal party and they provided outstanding support.
We would love to hear about your experience with Mario Colli Photography
Mario, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being our wedding photographer. To everyone out there looking for a photographer who takes AMAZING photos, is professional, very friendly and will be your right-hand man all through your wedding day, then Mario is your pick. When first looking for a wedding photographer we looked at many portfolios, but kept going back to Mario’s page. His photos are absolutely stunning and we knew we wanted him to photograph our day. Communication with Mario was fantastic from the first few emails, to our initial meeting, a check-in call before the big day and then correspondence afterward. When we met Mario in person we immediately realized how passionate he is about his work and he wasn’t pushy at all but wanted to make sure we picked the perfect photographer for our special day. Mario was such fun to have on the day and helped all of the bridal party feel at ease and kept us smiling and laughing to produce genuine photos all day. Mario was also there to help in any way he could all through the day (he even helped put my veil in!). He was organized and great at making sure we captured our key photos even with some time restraints. Mario was with us for 12 hours and maintained a fantastic energy all day with a smile on his face. All in all, it was a 10 out of 10 experience and the photos are definitely a 10 out of 10 too! We cannot recommend a better photographer; even our guests were raving about the amazing Mario! Thank you Mario, we will forever be grateful.
