Getting married on Lake Como
Great food, magnificent views, suggestive nature, are just a few of the reasons that make Lake Como the perfect destination for a wedding.
There are so many attractive places and venues, rich in charm and beauty, such as Villa del Balbianello, set on a rock at the end of a wooded promontory.
This sumptuous villa is surrounded by a wonderful flower garden and it’s an exclusive, yet intimate and familiar place, finely furnished, with a terrace dedicated to the civil rites, which overlooks the wonderful landscape of the Alps and the lake.
The ideal place where to spend those unforgettable moments, together with your guests and the person you chose to have at your side for the rest of your life.
Another villa worth mentioning is certainly Villa d’Este, a true architectural jewel on the shores of the lake, a historic palace that gives a truly impressive atmosphere.
On the other hand, this villa is known as the
quintessence of romance and many famous couples loved to stay here (including Aristotle Onassis and Maria Callas, Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Elizabeth Taylor and Nick Hilton, Rita Hayworth and Orson Welles, Clark Gable And Carol Lombard, to name just a few).
Villa d’Este is one of the most sought after wedding venues in the world.
The service is punctual and impeccable, the elegant and refined decor is the perfect place to celebrate your wedding as you always dreamed of.
Speaking of romantic venues, we cannot forget to mention Villa Pizzo.
Facing directly on the lake, with its beautiful terraces and stone balustrades, its gardens and baroque fountains, it has that perfect lingering romantic mood for the most moving outdoor ceremony and the most sumptuous an plain air banquet.
We conclude this overview on the most impressive venues on Lake Como with the superb Villa Erba, a noble and aristocratic mansion, with a cozy and luxurious five-stair atrium, meeting point of famous artists, painters, politicians and literate.
Villa Erba is located right in front of Lake Como, not far from the city and it’s been the selected wedding scenery for so many couple for more than two centuries, due to its elegant style and its airy spaces.
Como Lake is the right place for you if you are looking for a refined and elegant location for your wedding, if you have always dreamed of a great style but at the same time intimate and familiar, if you love having a natural landscape that is delicate and romantic.
Lake Como has always been one of the favorite destinations for marriages: it offers wonderful landscapes, unspoiled nature and places that are authentic artwork.
There could be no better place for a dream wedding.
Lake Como wedding photographer
Lake Como is perfect if a romantic and “refined” luxury style is what you want for your wedding.
You will find here a very special care to details, which returns also in the pictures: nothing is loose and everything harmonizes perfectly.
An example is the Grand Hotel Tremezzo which, together with Villa Sola Cabiati, stands up as one of the gems of the elegant mood of the area of the lake.
The Grand Hotel offers the utmost comfort, with its SPA and facilities, still retaining that beautiful mood from the early 1900.
Entering Villa Sola Cabiati instead will bring you directly in the eighteenth century.
Its clear architecture, its Italian garden, the sumptuous halls with their magnificent frescos, the precious collections…
…everything makes it perfect for weddings or intimate events as romantic dinners, engagements and elopements.
Another special place for your photo shoot is Varenna: a small hamlet overlooking the banks of the Lario and offering unique and special locations such as Villa Cipressi and Villa Monastero.
Villa Cipressi is a complex of gardens and buildings built between 1400 and 1800, home to several noble families.
Today it offers itself as dreamy romantic place for private events and weddings.
You can have the most pleasant outdoor dinner on its beautiful ancient terrace overlooking the lake, and take a relaxing walk up and down its lush gardens, through the narrow lanes, surrounded by bushes and trees.
It is really an intimate place where you can get in contact with nature, an oasis of tranquility worthy of the most impressionist picture.
Finally, Villa Monastero, one of the my favourite places.
It is full of romantic and delicate atmospheres, blended with rocky suggestions.
The magnificent cypresses’ landscape you can see from their gardens is the quintessence of what I feel is the lake mood iteself, which inspired for centuries artists, poets, writers.
Every time I find myself on Lake Como, either as wedding photographer or to take engagement pictures or just romantic photographs for people in love, I can’t help but being inspired by those ancient atmospheres, those curated details and the awesome natural beauty that surround me and my clients and get framed in every picture.
