Romantic Destination Engagement in Verona, Italy | Lauren & Jack

Holding hands on the Ponte Scaligero in Verona, Italy

 

I remember opening a message from Lauren one morning asking me whether I would be interested in travelling to Italy for a destination engagement in Verona.  “Oh, yes please!”   The thought of spending the day with Lauren and Jack around this historic Italian city was such an exciting prospect.

I had never visited before but it’s now firmly one of my favourite Italian cities.  The Verona old quarter turned out to be perfect for a destination engagement photoshoot.  Lots of quiet backstreets, varied sights and certainly not overcrowded with tourists.

Our first stop just had to be at the Casa di Giulietta.  The whole passageway and courtyard is plastered in messages from romantic lovers from all over the world.  Right there, in front of the growing tourist crowds, Jack went down on one knee.  Underneath the infamous Romeo and Juliet balcony he professed his love and proposed to Lauren.  How romantic!  Afterwards, they made their way up to Juliet’s balcony to share a kiss and seal the moment.  It was such a thoughtful idea for Jack to consider this as the place to ask for Lauren’s hand.

After a refreshing cappuccino we headed through the streets to the banks of the River Adige and eventually on to Ponte Scaligero.  This is the bridge where Lauren and Jack had placed their own love lock on a previous visit.  After some searching, it was with great relief that they eventually rediscovered it!

It was such a privilege, and a lot of fun, to spend a few hours on this special day with Jack and Lauren on their destination engagement.  There’s just so much love between these two.  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in a few weeks time at Oakley Court in Windsor.
