I’ve held back on posting Carolyn and Billy’s big day in Italy, mostly because I didn’t want to give away what Carolyn’s dress looked like before the wedding reception – but now that that has been and gone, I have been granted permission.
Many years back, Billy and I worked together. More often than not on a Friday night after work, Carolyn and I would meet in town and go for some light refreshments. On one of these said Fridays, Billy tagged along, and from then on in the pair were inseperable!
Here is what the couple have said about their wedding day;
“We chose Italy purely because we wanted to go abroad, we wanted our day to have something of a relaxed atmosphere, be intimate and with a nice sunny setting. We knew someone who had been married in Malcesine before, and having seen their wedding video – we knew it was what we wanted from our day. Lake Garda Weddings made it really easy too – from the initial planning stages to the final finer details – nothing was too much trouble for them and they always got back to us straight away when we emailed them any questions. Having a wedding planner in Italy made life so much easier. ”
And the best memory from the day?
“That’s a hard one, the whole day was absolutely fantastic and there is nothing we would change. I don’t think I can really pick out one part of the day as being better than the rest, although the boat trip on the lake seems to stand out in my head. The boat trip took place after the wedding ceremony and photos and I think everyone seemed to relax and enjoy themselves at that point (perhaps something to do with the cool sea air as it was a rather hot day!). ”
And the best present the couple recieved?
“We really didn’t expect much, we threw a massive party when we got back to Scotland to celebrate our marriage with friends and family, and were gobsmacked by their generosity, which consisted mostly of money and gift cards. The best man (Billy’s older brother) got us a Thai cooking class day – which will get us in the mood for our honeymoon in December.”
The best part about being married?
“Knowing that you have made the commitment to spend the rest of your life with the person you love – life couldn’t get any better.” (This was from the groom himself – how sweet!)
Carolyn and Billys wedding was planned and all photographs supplied through Lake Garda Weddings.
