Carinthia is a magical place of relaxing beauty.
It is the region of the lakes: blue gems set between pointed hills and soft hills, covered with luxuriant coniferous forests.
The Woerthersee is the largest lake on whose banks to the south lies Klagenfurt.
The boat that departs from Klagenfurt crosses the whole lake offering magnificent views; the arrival in Poertschach is announced by a siren whistle and just behind a promontory you can see Villa Miralago, built on a slight decline and sheltered by two large trees.
It is an old stately home that today hosts important events, such as weddings.
I was lucky enough to realize the photo shooting of a very special couple right here in May 2015. Trine, a Norwegian Soprano and Alex, an English Conductor, who have been living for years between Germany and Austria but here they decided to get married with a beautiful ceremony in the church, where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the mountain profiles, and then moved to the lake for the reception and lunch.
The day before they had held the civil service, because according to Austrian law, it cannot be done simultaneously with the religious one. The day was fresh with still snow on the mountain tops.
An ideal setting.
All the guests were impressed as we were familiar and by the fact that we spoke English (this cannot be taken for granted in Italy!) So they all enjoyed their time a lot. In the end, once the album was delivered… our relationship with Trine and Alex was not over: we stayed in touch, even friends one could say, and we met several times for lunch and dinner, as well as at the theater to enjoy some of their performances.
If you’re thinking: “Hey, I’d like to see many others!” Do not worry. I have put together for you specific photo galleries divided by marriage. To appreciate them click on the button below, you will be directed to shootproof.com.
