Zoe & AJ's wedding in St Paul's Cathedral & The Olive Gardens in Mdina, Malta.
Ceremony:- Mdina Cathedral
Reception: - Olive Gardens, Mdina
Zoe & AJ from Ireland chose Mdina as their dream wedding destination.
Mdina, also known as the 'Silent City' and used to be the old Maltese capital from the 8th century until it was changed to the now present day capital of Valletta in 1571.
Mdina is a small fortified city which is car free (well, apart for the small amount of resident's cars) that happens to be a favourite with 750,000 tourists a year as well as engaged couples wanting to their engagement session within it's walls. If you've not been and planning a visit to Malta, make sure that this is on you do see list. It is like stepping back in time wandering through the quiet narrow streets where you'll only hear the sound of horse's hooves on the stone streets and see stunning Norman and Baroque architecture.
Zoe & Paul wanted to take advantage of this amazing place after their wedding ceremony in St Paul's Cathedral which is in the heart of the city. We left their wedding party who headed off to the reception venue to give us a little time so I could capture some Bride & Groom portraits of the happy couple in Mdina before we joined their guests at the Olive Gardens. The Olive gardens is a wonderful wedding venue and is just outside the city which benefits from having beautiful Mdina as a backdrop especially at night when it's all light up.
The photos below are some of the highlights of Zoe and AJ's wedding day in Mdina. Enjoy.
