Chiesa di San Giacomo di Rialto bride & groom

Bride & Groom resting under the historic portico's of the Chiesa di San Giacomo di Rialto

The 11th Century historic Gothic church Chiesa di San Giacomo di Rialto stands above an empty square as a bride & groom sit under its portico in the very early hours during their sunrise photo session.


If you are looking for wonderful locations to be pictured in Venice, there are a lot of lcoations you can choose from. Most of the ones I love are featured in this section. But keep in mind as Venice is one of Europe's top 10 travel destinations you will not have photos such as this unless you begin your session very early in the am and in the summer time.

The reason why I love this square is due to its proximity to the Rialto bridge and of coruse the stunning architecture of the square itself. The church has a large 15th-century clock above the entrance, a useful item in the Venetian business district but regarded as a joke for its inaccuracy. The Gothic portico where our bride and groom are resting is one of the last surviving examples in Venice. It has a Latin cross plan with a central dome. Inside, the Veneto-Byzantine capitals on the six columns of ancient Greek marble date from the 11th century.

This square is one of my favorites in Venice, picture perfect for couples wishing to soak up the historic ambiance of a bygone era.
