A BEAUTIFUL DESTINATION WEDDING ON LAKE COMO AT VILLA CARLOTTA AND VILLA CIPRESSI
Lucia got ready at Villa Cipressi in the villas large bridal suite, before cruising with her father, mother and bridesmaids over to Villa Carlotta for the ceremony in a traditional Venetian limousine. Ceremony details included a string duo, beautiful ceremony chair bouquets and two large flower arrangements either side of the alter. Boats then transported their guests back across the lake to Villa Cipressi, whilst the bride and groom enjoyed time alone with their photographer on a separate speed boat before catching them up. A delicious Italian aperitivo awaited everyones arrival, served on the terrace over looking the lake and accompanied by an Italian folk band. Dinner was served outside in the villas intimate walled courtyard under a canopy of romantic festival lighting. Cutting of the wedding cake took place on the terrace under the stars before everyone entered the villa for the couples first dance and live DJ set.
“Wow, just wow! Words cannot describe just how amazing our Lake Como wedding was. From the very beginning of the day until the very end it was a rush of pure emotion and excitement” – Lucia & Dan
A REVIEW OF LUCIA AND DAN’S DESTINATION WEDDING CELEBRATION ON LAKE COMO
“My Lake Como Wedding literally made our dreams come true, and our wedding vision soon became reality. We had a very clear vision of what we wanted from the very beginning of considering a destination wedding, and Gemma made everything come together so perfectly. Gemma guided us through every aspect of arranging the wedding, from the initial legalities and paperwork processes to providing that creative eye for those all important finishing touches. Gemma is very approachable and always quick to respond to emails which is comforting especially when I occasionally had a little worry! Being a bit of a perfectionist, I have extremely high expectations and the fact that she is always smiling, positive and approachable is very reassuring. On the wedding day we felt so relaxed simply because everything had been planned so meticulously, and her team were set up in all of the different locations, subtly coordinating every little detail. Gemma also only offers and works with the very best local service providers which again eliminates any worries, especially when visiting the area prior to our wedding wasn’t an option for us. Understandably I was a little worried about my hair and make up prior to the day as I had not had a trial, but Gemma’s hair and make up stylists were amazing and relaxed me straight away. The flowers provided on the day were beautiful, so elegant and exactly what I had dreamt of! The musicians for the ceremony, aperitivo and dinner were amazing and provided that beautiful Italian atmosphere that I had always wanted to experience. I find it so hard to find words to describe my overall wedding experience with My Lake Como Wedding when someone asks me, however the word wow comes out a lot. If I can offer advice to anyone when considering a destination wedding it would be to simply share your vision with Gemma and the My Lake Como Wedding team, and trust that they will listen and transform your dream wedding into reality. The day was everything we had imagined and more, and that is simply down to their creativity and organisation. Grazie mille My Lake Como Wedding”
