Today we’re going for a walk in Venice with Alberto and Lorenzo. Photographs shared with us by Duepunti Wedding Photography.
HOW DID YOU MEET?
Alberto: I live and work in Lugano in my hairdressing salon, and Lorenzo is from Parma, a city in the heart of Italy. We meet the fist time on September during a Disco party with friends in Verona (city of lovers… was it be a chance?).
I was a staff member and my rope was door selection. Lorenzo, after saw me nearby entrance, worked up the nerve and engaged me during party and so we spent together the rest of the night.
After a while without some together time for our respective work reasons, we had another meeting and we finally fall in love.
Now Lorenzo has came to live here in Lugano with me and we’re looking for a more spacious house where live with the our “furry sons”, two chihuahua dogs named Pedro and Oscar. Now our aim is to have their first holiday together, marked with relax.. but maybe not to much!
Planning a destination wedding can be very overwhelming and many couples decide not to follow their dreams of a wedding abroad purely because of the amount of work it may take to organise. But let’s remember you can delegate most of this work and enjoy a fun elopement or wedding in our dream place. That is what wedding planners are for! Author of our advice article today is Claire – a UK based wedding planner behind Wed in Central Park, who specialises in organising weddings and elopements in New York City’s iconic park.
For the past five years I have been planning weddings for couples who want to get married in New York’s Central Park. When couples make first contact with me, they can be anywhere in the range between knowing exactly what they want, and when and how, and really only being in the very first stages of considering a destination wedding. Many couples are just looking for advice on where to start. I have planned around one hundred and eighty destination weddings or elopements to date. Here is a brief overview of how I would guide a couple who were in the early stages of considering a destination wedding. Whether you think a Central Park wedding would suit you, or you are interested in marrying in another great city of the world, or you are considering getting married on a beach, or somewhere else outdoors I hope this will be of use to get you thinking.
There are a few really big questions that need to be answered early on. Firstly, is this a destination wedding with a group of friends and family, or is this an elopement for just the two of you? Either way, you should discuss your tentative plans or ideas with your loved ones. They may have been assuming you would get married at home, or they might not want to travel, or they may not be able to travel for various reasons. Also, they might have some great ideas themselves, and they might be able to help.
