The mystery of the canals, the ornate facades of buildings being gently lapped by waves, the endless wandering that can leave you lost for hours and the Italian culture which appears around every corner. Venice is a city for the romantics and if you’re heading to Europe on a honeymoon, it’s a must see! I recently flew to Venice to photograph a bride and groom against the stunning backdrops and at the same time, couldn’t help pretending I was on honeymoon! I was lucky enough to stay at the incredibly ritzy The Westin Europa & Regina Hotel which is housed in a combination of 18th and 19th century palaces and sits perched overlooking the Grand Canal of Venice. Opening the curtains of my room (which I’m positive was meant for royalty rather than me!) each morning I could see Gondolas floating past, the immense dome of St Maria of Salute Basilica and fancy little speed boats zooming along the canal. It was a view that begged to be explored. Venice is a maze of little bridges, narrow alleys and historic landmarks which you can either plan to visit or do what most people prefer…get wonderfully lost. Here are my images. I hope you enjoy them!
