Henrieta & Stuart | Villa Bologna
NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Wedding Accommodation: - The Palace Hotel
Wedding Ceremony & Reception: - Villa Bologna
Stunning couple Henrieta & Stuart that are currently living in Dubai, decided to host their dream destination wedding in sunny Malta so their wedding guests from all sides of the globe to join them in celebrating their special day.
This was also a dream wedding for me as it was one of the first 'Unplugged' wedding as Henrieta & Stuart has asked family, friends and guests to turn off their phones, iPads, cameras and other digital distractions during the ceremony and reception. Another thing that I loved about this particular wedding was that they didn't want any formal photo's at their wedding.
The wedding day started off with both parties preparations in the Palace Hotel in Sliema starting off with the ladies within 'The View Suite'. The Palace had many themed rooms but the View suite with it's clean lines and the interesting reflections from the many mirrors placed on the walls is very modern and elegant. The Palace is a great choice of Hotel which is nestled in heart of Sliema and one that many destination wedding couples like to stay.
The wedding ceremony was held within the Baroque gardens of the Villa Bologna which is a one of the best wedding venues on the island and one I never get tired of photographing. After the ceremony everyone made the way to the wedding reception that was set in the larger rear garden right next to the famous Dolphin fountain.
Thankfully the Villa does have a huge Marquee within it's garden which is an excellent option when mother nature mis-behaves, something that she did do that late on in the evening during the reception. The skies unexpectedly opened with a downpour, catching everyone by surprise including the band which had all their electronic equipment in the open air of the garden.
In some cultures, rain on your wedding day is considered very good luck. Here's to wishing both Henrieta & Stuart all the luck and happiness in the world for their new exciting adventure as husband & wife.
