To make a short introduction, imagine Hubby and I, all dressed up as Bride and Groom, wandering around Venice in the early morning with a tripod and a camera. Yes, we did the After Wedding Photo Shooting by ourselves and we were so satisfied with the result.
As you are going to see, we skipped the majority of popular, yet overcrowded places in the city because of this reason: It was not as easy as it seems to go around in my wedding dress even though I was wearing sneakers underneath. As a plus, the weather was not as friendly as we would have wanted. We were not lucky enough to have a gondola ride photo session, plus we had to end the photo shooting sooner than we hoped because it started raining heavily (as you will see in the pictures we took in front of Hotel Cavaletto).
I have already given all the details in my previous post, but to be sure, my Wedding Gown is from Privato Dress and the Boho Hats we are wearing are from Palaria Dadarlat. PS: You have to see the cutest painted details on the hats!
All in all, it was totally worth it and we will keep these memories in our hearts (and laptop/phones) forever!

I would recommend spending 3 days in Venice so you can take all the pictures you want and also enjoy the magic of the city. If you have more time at your disposal, there are many places around Venice that are picture perfect.
There are never quiet days in Venice, not even in winter time, but you will definitely see a difference if you visit during week days. For example, we’ve arrived during the weekend and we’ve used it just to enjoy the city, eat good food and drink Aperol Spritz. We’ve scheduled the photo session on Monday which meant less people to avoid for our pictures. Win-Win!
