Villa del Balbianello wedding
For some time now, Lake Como has been captivating millions of visitors including actors, singers and people from the jet set. It is increasingly chosen as a destination for fabulous weddings on the lake, in unique and dream settings. The married couple, from Great Britain, in this reportage, set their big day in some of the most famous locations on Lake Como. The basis for the preparations of the bride and bridesmaids was the village of Bellagio, known as La Perla del Lago: elegant hotels overlooking the lake and narrow alleys overflowing with typical shops, are the visiting card of this charming town. The bride wore a refined mermaid dress with lace details, paired with a long veil and a simple wave hairstyle to complete the outfit. To reach the place of the ceremony a motorboat, an ideal choice, for a truly spectacular entrance and to enjoy once again the breathtaking views that only the lake landscape can offer. The civil ceremony was celebrated in the magnificent Villa del Balbianello on the tip of Lavedo; one of the many historic residences that dot the banks of the Lario. The villa has an ancient history: in a bygone era it was the home of a bishop and later of a traveling explorer. From the Loggia Durini the panorama that opens up is magnificent; the perfect setting for the exchange of promises. While the splendid garden with terraces sloping down to the lake is the ideal setting for a photo shotting, enjoying an aperitif or simply walking. The evening reception was held at the Lido di Lenno, located in the Gulf of Venus, directly on the beach, for a dinner by the lake. Pastel colors in shades of antique pink and fuchsia and natural elements, such as intertwined branches, were used for the decorations of the tables and, to add atmosphere and give a romantic lighting, the candles in the glass jars transformed into lanterns. Let yourself be inspired by the photographic story of this wonderful wedding on Lake Como.
