Elegant Wedding at 18th Century Villa on Lake Como

Lovely outdoor wedding ceremony in Italy held on the edge of iconic Lake Como. Simple decor give way to stunning views, punctuated by a blushing bride and handsome groom.

Photographer’s Comments: “Hilde and Yngve are a Norwegian couple who said I do during a wedding on Lake Como, northern Italy close to Switzerland. They chose the 18th century Villa built by the lake with an amazing view of the Italian Alps surrounding the lake.

“Hilde, our beautiful bride, got ready with her bridesmaids at the Villa. Yngve (the groom) got ready at Bellagio – a very famous town close to the villa – with his best man. He left the town with all the guests and reached the villa by boat.

“The ceremony was held on the villa terrace looking the breathtaking view of the lake while a harp was playing. Everything was very romantic with clouds floating slowly reaching the lake through the hills.”

“After ceremony they had aperitif with prosecco and canapés on the outdoor terrace, and then moved inside the villa for a traditional Italian dinner. As is typical of Norwegian weddings the couple had many speeches and some of them were very touching.
