A BEAUTIFUL DESTINATION WEDDING ON LAKE COMO AT VILLA BALBIANELLO AND GRAND HOTEL TREMEZZO
Yulia and Neil’s outdoor destination wedding ceremony took place at one of Lake Como’s most iconic wedding venues, Villa Balbianello. Their close friends and family travelled from all over the world to be with them and take part in what was to be an extremely beautiful Italian destination wedding celebration. Yulia and Neil, and their visiting guests stayed in the quiet and picturesque town of Tremezzo for the duration of their Lake Como stay, and experienced the luxury delights of the Grand Hotel Tremezzo for their accommodation and wedding day evening reception. On the morning of the wedding Yulia got ready with her bridesmaids in the hotel’s bridal suite before making their way to Villa Balbianello in a traditional Venetian speed boat. On her arrival at the villa Yulia’s father proudly walked her up through the gardens from the boat port and out onto the sunny ceremony terrace, to the sound of gasps from the guests and an adoring gaze from Neil. Following the ceremony the guests congratulated the newly married couple before slowly making their way back down through the villa’s gardens to the lakeside where a large boat was waiting to take them on a relaxing cruise back to the Grand Hotel Tremezzo for a refreshing food and drinks aperitivo. Whilst the guests were enjoying their cruise, Yulia and Neil explored Villa Balbianello’s vast manicured gardens with their wedding photographer before speeding off in an Italian wood mahogany speed boat to make and capture even more truly fabulous memories and photographs. They then arrived at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo to be met with a glass of chilled Champagne before making their grand entrance into the hotels decorated dining room to join their guest for the delicious Italian reception dinner. Following dinner Yulia disappeared only to return and make another huge entrance wearing the most fabulous evening dress, before taking part in traditional wedding games and the couple’s first dance as newly weds. A large wedding cake was arranged outside on the terrace in front of the lake, and as Yulia and Neil’s cake knife cut into the cake for the first time a spectacular display of fireworks erupted behind them, choreographed perfectly to one of their favourite songs. The wedding evening then continued at a private lakeside lido, Lido di Lenno, where the celebrations continued well into the early hours of the morning.
“The wedding was a fairytale in one of the most beautiful places on the planet, Lake Como. Our original plan was to have a destination wedding on a beach in the Maldives, and all was going according to plan until Yulia stumbled upon Lake Como. We stayed faithful to the Maldives and went there for our honeymoon instead.” – Neil
A REVIEW OF YULIA AND NEIL’S DESTINATION WEDDING EXPERIENCE ON LAKE COMO
“We had never been to Lake Como but from our first conversation with Gemma we knew that the wedding would be perfect. Our wedding was planned across three venues which meant that there was a lot of coordination involved, timings, transport and also ensuring everyone was where they had to be, when they had to be. Every little detail was thought out and perfectly planned which ensured that nothing could go wrong. Gemma is highly professional, supportive and understanding on what could be a very stressful day, she is friendly, caring and made us feel that our wedding was always going to be everything we wanted it to be. We would highly recommend Gemma and her team to anyone who wants to experience an amazing destination wedding on Lake Como.”
IT’S ALWAYS A PLEASURE PLANNING A LAKE COMO WEDDING, AND AN HONOUR TO BE A PART OF SUCH A MILESTONE IN SOMEONE’S LIFE JOURNEY
I would like to personally thank Yulia and Neil for letting myself and my team be a part of their Lake Como wedding. It was a wonderful wedding planning journey which led to the most special and unforgettable wedding day filled with memories that will last a lifetime. I would personally also like to take this opportunity to thank and credit everyone who was involved in making this day so very special for Yulia and Neil.
