Catherine and Dario are perhaps the luckiest couple I have had the pleasure to photograph this year. Although you can select everything for your Wedding day so that it's just perfect, there's one thing that you can't choose and that's the weather. Unfortunately on the morning of Catherine and Dario's wedding it was quite literally raining cats and dogs, it was thick black clouds as far as the eye could see. Of course we were all staying positive and it paid off, as miraculously by the time we left for the ceremony at 1pm the skies were filled with blazing autumn sunshine.
After the ceremony, the guests and happy couple enjoyed a delightful aperitif on the stunning terrace amongst the vines at Bellevue Wine Estate. Again just as we left for the reception the heavens opened, it was as if the weather was aware of the day's timetable! The reception at the Casino de Morges was beautiful, full of games designed by the best men and bridesmaids who had made such a great effort.
There was one final piece of luck for the day, as with the weather's impeccable timing, the night skies cleared just long enough for a final hour at midnight to allow the wedding party to participate in a majestic lantern release on the pier over the moonlit lakeside. Now that's what I call luck!
