This November in Como Italy, Vanessa Van Wieren from Alchemy Fine Events is hosting a Luxury Wedding Photography and Design Workshop with other experts in the industry entitled L’ Arte Del Matrimonio, or The Art of the Wedding.

This workshop is open to photographers and planners/designers alike to offer them the training in how to approach their events as an art director, crafting each detail and capturing it, shooting side by side, planner/photographer, to improve each others work synergistically as well as an individual artist.

Together with photographers Jana Williams, Mike Larson, florist Krista Jon, and wedding photo director Rebecca Crumley of The Knot, they aim to teach wedding planners and photographers the lesser known tools of the trade to bring their careers to the next level, how to get the shots they need, how to craft the perfect submission as well as specific features like Boudoir session with Jana Williams, Portraits with Mike Larson and Tablescape Styling with Krista Jon and Vanessa Van Wieren.

The workshop will take place at a 4 star luxury hotel on the shores of Lake Como and include gourmet meals and special social events nightly including a black tie gala the last evening.

There will be shootings in the grandious Villa Passalaqua, holiday home to Elton John and the likes, as well as a stunning wooden Italian yacht, a la Lake Como, and other picturesque locations.
