A BEAUTIFUL DESTINATION WEDDING ON LAKE COMO AT VILLA BALBIANELLO AND VILLA REGINA TEODOLINDA

Gemma and Mike were joined in Lake Como by thirty five of their closest family and friends for their beautiful and intimate destination wedding celebration. Lake Como was always destined to be the location of their special day following Mike’s surprise wedding proposal here on the lake just a couple of years prior. The private lake side Villa Teodolinda hosted the couples sunny wedding afternoon and evening reception following an unforgettable wedding ceremony at Villa Balbianello. Gemma and her bridesmaids spent the morning relaxing by the lake at Villa Teodolinda before getting ready together in the villas rustic Italian bedrooms. Gemma, along with her parents and three bridesmaids were picked up and taken to the wedding ceremony villa in a beautiful Venetian speed boat. After arriving at the water gates of Villa Balbianello they made their way up through the villa’s gardens to the spectacular wedding ceremony terrace, and a very excited Mike. Following the ceremony there was plenty of time on the villas outdoor terraces for celebrations and wedding photographs before everyone made their way back down through the villas gardens and boarded a large boat for a refreshing cold Prosecco and slow cruise on the lake. A beautifully prepared rustic corner of fine Italian food and a live jazz band awaited everyones arrival at the reception villa where everyone relaxed in the sunshine before being called into the beautifully decorated dining room for dinner. Following the dinner Gemma and Mike disappeared off into the villa’s gardens with their wedding photographer for more photo’s whilst the guests socialised out on the terrace amongst lanterns and under a canopy of romantic twinkling fairy lights. An open bar and a delicious Italian buffet of freshly prepared deserts was served outside on the terrace whilst a DJ provided the entertainment inside the villa taking the wedding celebrations into the early hours of the morning.

Every single guest commented during the day about how they were absolutely thrilled to have had the chance to experience, and be apart of what was easily the most wonderful and unforgettable wedding they had ever attended” – Gemma & Mike

A REVIEW OF GEMMA AND MIKE’S UNFORGETTABLE DESTINATION WEDDING EXPERIENCE ON LAKE COMO

“Thank you Gemma. The whole experience was so wonderful and totally unforgettable, especially travelling to Villa Balbianello in a beautiful Venetian boat with my parents and bridesmaids whilst listening to Italian love songs playing and the feeling of nervous excitement as we approached. Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing each other for the first time. Our reception venue was unbelievably beautiful in so many ways and incredibly romantic, with so many pretty lanterns and fairly lights, it was totally magical! Dancing under the stars with the lake in front of us with all of our friends and family is just something we will never forget” – Gemma & Mike. Read more of their kind words here
