Couples usually start this journey similarly with the wonderful idea of a destination wedding and approach it with great excitement, enthusiasm, and a good amount of trepidation. Hopefully, this blog based on our experience filming destination weddings throughout Italy and seeing firsthand the magical wedding day unfold for couples will give you conclusive information to help you to commit to the destination wedding so many only dreams about.
It makes sense to think that a destination wedding is unaffordable and its probably less expensive to stay local.Well that is certainly not always the case, there can actually be a substantial savings when your wedding is abroad. Italy is an extremely popular destination for so many reasons and cost is one of them. Furthermore your wedding day does not have to be on a Saturday because everyone is working on weekdays. When you have a destination wedding, any day of the week is suitable and will prove far less expensive.
When it comes to videography and photography your film and photos will be elevated to a very different level, exotic sunsets, amazing beaches, rocky mountain outcrops, rustic villages and historic cities are just a few of the backdrops to choose from. Take advantage of being in this space and include a pre-wedding day film and photo shoot.
