Hey Marco!

Barry took this shot of me, I love it for some reason....I can remember the fun I was feeling at the time it was taken, I also love the fact that it shows the location of our room in the Hotel. I loved listening to the Gondolas passing by our room every morning, some of them had accordians playing but my favourite was listening to the wonderful Italian male voices singing songs that I recognised. It was so very romantic.......

Meet Marco...after our amazing ride on a Gondola, we went to the nearby bridge and I called out 'Hey, Marco!' and our Gondolia turned and waved to us! He had told us so many interesting facts about Venice as we ambled our way around the narrow canals, not sure I could recall any now mind you!
The slideshow below is of all the photos I took on our very romantic, beautiful, interesting and VERY expensive ride on a Gondola....all but one shot, the penultimate was taken by Marco's colleague.

What lovely pics- you look so radiant and happy. Not surprising! I am really looking forward to more wedding shots - the dress is so beautifully made. Such talent. Was it silk - it looks like.

Glorious pictures (and I love the one in your sidebar, shwoing the detail of the dress: Wow!)

And it looks as if a gondola ride through Venice is far more exciting than a punt along the Cambridge backs...

That is a great shot! Gee, I thought driving on the capital Beltway was heavy traffic. the movies only show the one gondola, I never saw so many jockying for position.
Beautiful buildings

Oh, now you make me want to go to Venice -- I'd never really thought about it before. I LOVE that picture of you -- so wonderful and carefree. Your pictures are stunning, as always!

Wow - you look better than glamorous in that photo because it is so natural and full of life.
