Lake Maggiore is the second largest lake in Italy and we consider it to be a beautiful jewel. With its Borromean islands, blue water and small villages, the lake is one of the most lovely locations for destination weddings in Italy.
The Grand Hotel des Iles Borromees is one of the most historic hotels in the pretty town of Stresa. It faces the lake and the charming Meazza Ballroom is the perfect setting if you are looking for a majestic event.
Alison and James, from Australia, chose this spectacular location for their big day. A Church few steps from the hotel was the touching spot for their ceremony and the elegant tall glass vases filled with summer flowers created a sweet atmosphere.
A really summer lake side Amore!
The wedding of Stephanie and Daniel is one of those perfect exclusive weddings on the Lake Como we really love to feature on our blog.
The very special luxury villa on the shores of the Lake was Stephanie’s chosen dramatic venue! There is no better choice on the Lake when seeking the Italian elegance, the exclusivity of luxury villa, the special atmosphere of large Italian gardens slowing reaching the Lake and the opportunity to host up to 40 guests in your mansion in Italy.
Step and Dan’s guests travelled all the way from USA, Belgium and Honk Kong where the couple works and lives to enjoy this special 3 days event: weddings on the Lake Como often include more than just the wedding day to let guests enjoy smaller events on the days before and discover the beauty of this Italian magical Lake.
On a sunny day of a Late September Saturday the light seems just perfect for wedding pictures!! Weddings on the Lake Como are always welcome throughout the year, but Spring, late summer and early Autumn are the perfect months to get married!
The wedding ceremony was held in the gardens of the with the extraordinary views of the Lake as a perfect romantic background. The gardens are so impressive and the large loan facing the lake seems ideal for a wedding reception or a welcome cocktail as Step and Dan did. The wedding reception was planned in the ground floor main hall with frescos on ceilings and the classical and elegant atmosphere made even more special with little stylish touches. After the cutting of the cake under the stars, we move upstairs
Green, nature, simple, among the tree and the whispering of the water nearby… this was their dream wedding in Italy and what a perfect location this beautiful villa on Lake Maggiore to accomplish Emily and Alex’s dream? The outdoor ceremony was so elegant in the simplicity of an arch made of natural branches and soft pale flowers? Baskets of seasonal country flowers together with candles, lanterns and petals made the final touches for such an exquisite and delicate theme wedding in Italy.
The Lake district is such an exclusive Italian destination and Lake Maggiore is among the lakes the location where extraordinary villas meet a very natural setting often surrounded by woods.
There are several venues for a wedding as charming as Alex and Emily’s, see some here:

A romantic small wedding in one of the most charming wedding venues on the Lake Como for Monique and Layne: VIlla del Balbianello.
A long flight from Mornington, Victoria, in Australia to celebrate an unique wedding day among a few very special friends. The villa is absolutely one of the most stunning and luxury venues for weddings in Italy and it is one of the most breathtaking Italian villas overlooking Lake Como. Monique was so beautiful in her stylish gown and the bouquet was all about her personality.
The ceremony was blessed by a wonderful weather and the outdoor reception with views was just the perfect event to end this romantic and intimate wedding in Lake Como.
Villa del Balbianello is one of the villas we love the most on the shores of Lake Como. We have a selected number of preferred venues we suggest even tough we are open to plan a wedding in every villa or venue around Lake Como.

A casual wedding for Tanja and Mark ended with a “all in” jump on Lake Garda.
It is difficult to imagine a wedding where all guests literally jump into the water to celebrate just after the ceremony. This is what happened last July 2013 at Tanja and Mark’s wedding in the fresh waters of the Italian Lake Garda!
The idea was to plan a very casual wedding in Italy. They felt in love with Lake Garda a long time ago and there was no other location more appropriate for them.
Tanja was looking for a very unique and special venue, somewhere out of the track, not too touristy and to be able to reach it by boat. The island we suggested was perfect for their vision: it took less than 1 minute to choose the venue!
Everything should have been organized as a “day out”: a boat ride along the lake with some cocktail and appetizers; a short and very emotional ceremony; time to discover this beautiful venue and why not a “swim on the Lake” to celebrate!
All guests were invited to join the ceremony prepared for this and they all had a great fun!
We do like to plan some less formal weddings, paying more attention on the fun of the day , the excursion, the feeling of such a “unusual” day. This is just a different way to be “exclusive” for Tanja and Mark. We do agree as what makes an Italian wedding exclusive is just the unique vision of the couple’s dream. And it is always different!
