Venue: Villa del Balbianello

Videomaker: Valerio Casale

Wedding planner: Italian Lakes Wedding

A wedding on Lake Como, in an elegant and exclusive villa, a site of FAI – Italian Environmental Fund, visited by tourists from all over the world and chosen as the setting for some Hollywood movies. Villa del Balbianello is located on the tip of the Lavareddo peninsula directly overlooking Lake Como from which you can see enchanting views of the Lario.

The bride and groom got ready at Villa Mirabella in Cadenabbia overlooking the lake and reached Villa del Balbianello by boat and mooring in the beautiful park surrounding the house. Crossing the garden surrounded by statues and scenic terraces, the bride and groom reached the venue for the outdoor ceremony, the splendid Durini loggia. The arched building is clad in green ficus and decorated with a wind rose inlaid in the floor. The view of the lake and the careful setup by Italian Lakes’ wedding planners, specialising in weddings at Italian lakes, created a truly magical atmosphere.

After the outdoor ceremony with relatives and friends, the bride and groom took a romantic motorboat ride, where they shot the video in the gentle light of the sunset. The reception with excellent Italian food was held in the intimate Sagre loggia, but the day could only end with dancing and music on the wonderful terrace of Villa Balbianello, overlooking the lake by night and tastefully set up by the wedding planners.
