Giulia and Nicola got married in the Mendicoli Church (Chiesa dei Mendicoli), in Venice a few week ends ago.
What I love about this wedding is the location in Venice and the bride’s veil which recalls the broidering tradition of Burano, a tiny lovely island in the Venetian lagoon, famous for its coloured houses and..for its hand-made laces!
Thank you Barbara for these inspiring photos! It’s the end of the week end, so I need some encouragement to start the week!
The fairytail about the Burano laces is quite romantic…
Once upon a time a fisherman…it was his wedding eve and he was fishing in the lagoon when a siren tried to seduce him with her enchanting music. He resisted her and while she was leaving she bit his boat with her tail and from the foam of the water a wonderful veil came out. The fisherman decided to give it to his bride and the day of the wedding she was so beautiful that from that day on all the girls of Burano tried to make a veil as beautif as it was, starting the well-know tradition of Burano embroidery…
After the cerimony, the bride and groome took a boat and went for a romantic trip along the Grand Canal! OMG!
After that they took a boat taxi and moved to Mazzorbo where the reception was held, and before that they stopped in Burano for some creative shoots!
