Yael + Micha | Jewish Wedding in Venice

Jewish weddings are not very common in Italy – especially such lovely couples and such breath-taking venues!

Yael and Micha came from Tel Aviv to celebrate their wedding in the amazing city of Venice. They rent a typical Venetian mansard flat in Campo Santa Margherita – notice the beautiful small terrace on the roof! Yael and Micha got ready separately, and met on the terrace once they were both dressed for the wedding. That moment was absolutely lovely – the emotion and excitement the spouses were feeling was spread in the air!

Yael and Micha walked to the Synagogue passing the smallest calles of Venice. They had the chance to admire the beauty of the city from the eye of a native, because we led them through the most unknown venues to show them the hidden pearls of the Lagoon City, while having a small photo session.

Once we arrived at the small Campo before the Synagogue, the spouses and their guests had a small apéritif.
Yael entered the Synagogue first, and waited for Micha in the Kallah, the Bride’s Room, where her groom came to see her before the ceremony started – this is an ancient Jewish tradition based on the Byblical episode of Jacob the Patriarch, who married the wrong woman for her face was covered by a thick veil.

The ceremony took place in the wonderful Spanish Synagogue, built in the mid-500s. There, Micha and Yael recieved the blessing under the Huppah, a decorated canopy which stands for the couple’s future home. After breaking the glass – representing the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem and the subsequent diaspora – they were finally husband and wife!

After the ceremony, we had a small gondola ride that led us to the beautiful Cà Nigra Lagoon Resort, the chosen place for the reception, where the guests could enjoy the typical Venetian dishes in a beautiful terrace in front of the Canal. All the best to this beautiful couple!

Stephanie + Marc | Wedding in the Amalfi Coast

A beautiful Wedding in the amazing location of the Amalfi Coast by Mauro Pozzer Photographer

A gorgeous couple, a hot summer day, a stunning location facing the Mediterranean sea: what else can a wedding photographer ask?
From the U.S. to Ravello, one of the pearls of the Amalfi Coast: this was the trip that Stephanie, Marc and all their friends and families did to celebrate the couple’s wedding in the most romantic way ever. This special location was the wonderful Villa Cimbrone, once an aristocratic residence, now one of the best Hotel de Charme of the Mediterranean area. Stephanie, the wonderful bride, wore her wedding gown in one of the frescoed rooms of the villa, where the Norman-Arabic imprinting is still alive and perceptible. Along with her father, she reached her husband-to-be through the amazing gardens of the villa up to the so-called Tea Room, a wonderful porch among the trees and flowers. There the celebration took place: a civil ceremony surrounded by friends and family in a fairy-tale atmosphere. The shooting proceeded among the gardens of the villa, where the wild untouchable nature mixes itself to the highest of the human arts. The destination of the shooting was the Terrace to the Infinity, a small marble terrace facing the sea, characterized by its where the sight loses itself in what Gore Vidal defined “the most beautiful panorama of the world”. The result? A dreamy atmosphere which is hard to describe!

The reception started in a reserved area of the gardens, and continued in the Crypt – an amazing hall, characterized by rib vaults, facing the sea and the nature nearby.

What else to say – a stunning wedding in a stunning location!

Kerry & Chris | Wedding in Venice

An Alternative Wedding in Venice by Mauro Pozzer Photographer

Kerry and Chris – a beautiful couple from Boston who chose to celebrate their wedding in Venice, one of the most romantic cities of the world. Though the location is very typical for a wedding, the couple was definitely not! Chris, the groom, is keen on Street Photography, and the best way for us to homage his passion was to add a little spice to their wedding photos, playing with unconventional framings, different lenses (as you can see, we used a lot of Fish Eye in this wedding) and stronger filters for the post-production. Chris and Kerry lodged at the beautiful Best Western Hotel Sant’Elena, a few steps away from San Marco Square. Kerry and Chris got ready separately in their hotel suites; Kerry put on her wedding gown along with her friends and her mother, while Chris was enjoying a glass of whiskey with the boys… Without forgetting to photograph the photographers!

Chris’s outfit for the wedding was dark and unconventional – he and his best men looked like some secret agents on a Wedding mission! Kerry reached the wedding location after her husband-to-be, along with her beautiful blue-dressed bridesmaids. The Catholic ceremony took place in the outstanding marble Church of Santa Maria della Salute, and was led by the resident priest. It was touchy, intimate and as beautiful as the couple! After the wedding, it was the time for the couple shooting.  This photo session was particularly interesting, because the situation allowed us to mix between the Street Photography genre and our typical fashionable style.

We left from the Church on a water taxi – enjoying Venice from its canals is absolutely amazing! Then we moved to the Old Fish Market area, where Kerry and Chris could enjoy a Spritz, the typical aperitif in Veneto. After that we moved to San Marco – shooting a kiss in Saint Marco’s square with a Fish Eye was absolutely great! After the photographic service, we got back to the hotel where a wonderful outdoor reception was prepared for the newlyweds. The party went on with music, dances and great Italian food, ending with an unforgettable fire of golden Chinese Lanterns, amazingly mirroring in the black waters of the lagoon. You can see the full wedding there, or on our Vimeo Channel!
