Lake Como Wedding photographer Villa Balbianello
Which is one of the most beautiful wedding locations on Lake Como?
The Lake Como area is well known for the wonderful villas used as wedding locations. It is certainly known for its beauty, its wonderful views with its sunsets in the middle of the mountains.
History of the Villa del Balbianello
There are many historic villas but one of our favorites if not the favorite is villa del Balbianello. Villa del Balbianello is a historic building located in Lenno. The villa of Balbianello was built in 1787 then abandoned until an American officer decided to restore it and then it was sold to Guido Monzino who furnished it and finally left it to the FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano). Many television commercials and famous films such as Star Wars have been shot in the spaces of the villa.
Having said that, the villa is not only objectively beautiful and well cared for but has a lot of history within its walls. Religious
Wedding Ceremony Church of Sant’Antonio Morcote.
Changing the subject, today we tell you about Lilia and Giorgio’s wedding which took place half in Switzerland and the other half on Lake Como.
The religious ceremony was celebrated inside the small and wonderful church of Sant’Antonio in Morcote. This small church is located next to the larger church of Santa Maria del Sasso with an incredible view of Lake Lugano.
To start the day, an incredible rain storm arrived but in the early afternoon when the bride arrived, not only did the rain stop but the sun also came out. In the small church of Sant’Antonio, Lilia and Giorgio joined in marriage surrounded by about sixty friends and relatives.
Wedding Reception in Villa Del Balbianello – Lenno
The wedding reception took place on Italian soil in the beautiful villa of Balbianello.
Reaching the villa can be done easily with boats and so it has been done. The guests arrived at the villa from its pier and the newlyweds arrived last on a beautiful wooden Riva.
The location is beautiful in itself even without many decorations with a balcony overlooking the lake of a unique elegance. Despite this, the bride did not miss anything and made some incredible decorations. The most beautiful we have ever seen so far. Two imperial tables covered with a Gucci tablecloth were created, all decorated with many candles, flowers and 8 crystal chandeliers. The whole thing was a feast for the eyes that left everyone speechless. Lake Como is ideal for weddings of destiny In recent years, Lake Como has increasingly become a popular destination for weddings celebrated in Italy. The reasons are obvious, in the past even before the Romans it was inhabited and wonderful architectural beauties were created.
Another interesting fact is that Lake Como has been called the most beautiful lake in the world seven years ago. Not only for its microclimate but also for its wonderful villas and villages.
We are really happy to have photographed this wedding in Villa del Balbianello, the couple were really wonderful. It was a real honor for us to photograph their emotions on such an important day.
