Wedding in Zurich – Switzerland

Zurich

When Daniele and Philomila asked me to shoot their wedding in Zurich, my first reaction was to grin from ear to ear; I was so thrilled! Especially when I found out that Philomla and her sister, Natasha, are the two founders of excitemelove, one of the sweetest blogs about weddings!
Every time I have the chance to travel abroad for a photoshoot I am reminded how lucky I am. The excitement of visiting a new place combined with the pleasure of capturing some of the best moments of a couple in love can turn a destination wedding photoshoot into a magical experience. And these feelings never seem to fade away. It’s always like the first time!
Zurich is a gorgeous city, straight out of a fairy tale. Its natural beauty and tranquil, idyllic environment and its impressive architecture, which I absolutely adore, make it one of the world’s best places to live in. (And an ideal place to take wedding photos too, I should add!) Daniele & Philomila’s wedding was a perfect combination of Italian and Greek traditions in romantic Switzerland. The couple’s families and friends were so warm and enthusiastic that the whole experience felt like a wonderful, endless celebration.
It all started with the pre-wedding dinner at Birchegg, a famous Italian restaurant in Zurich. Believe it or not, there is no menu at this amazing restaurant! Its owner, the friendliest and sweetest host you could hope for, decides on the dishes to serve, always depending on the customers and, of course, on his own mood and creativity! This incredibly original idea created a unique atmosphere of freedom. But there was more. After dinner, a friend of the couple played his piccolo accordion and the air was filled with traditional Italian music. The wonderful melodies made everybody smile. I didn’t know if I should shoot or videotape those scenes. Fortunately, the videographer Kostas Kastanakis was with us and my wish was granted…
The wedding took place at the Church of Saint Dimitrios. And it would be an unforgivable omission not to mention that the bride was radiant in her Liluca wedding dress combined with the most beautiful Jimmy Choo bridal shoes I have ever seen. After the ceremony there was a wedding cocktail party at Schober café, one of the most stylish cafés in Zurich, while the wedding reception was held in Zunfthaus zur Saffran, a magnificent 18th-century building right in the heart of Zurich. The architecture and the interior of both places were fascinating. I felt like I had stepped into another era!
Daniele and Philomila, thank you both for your kind hospitality and all the marvellous moments I shared with you and your friends and families. It was an unforgettable experience! Next time we’ll go boating in the lake – this is a promise!
