Getting married on Lake Como
Getting married on Lake Como is every couple’s dream. Lake Como or Lairo needs no introduction.
Just 80 kilometres from Milan, situated between the provinces of Como and Lecco, it is a magical and suggestive place. An immense lake, the third largest in Italy and with an unmistakable Y shape.
It is on the shores of the lake that unique wedding venues stand: villas and luxury hotels.
Weddings on Lake Como are the first choice of many Italian and foreign couples. The latter, attracted by the possibility of an exclusive and luxury wedding, book their wedding well in advance.
Foreigners come from Russia, the United States and the more affluent parts of the world, they are demanding and aware that the Lake can offer them everything they need.
It is not uncommon to hear of strictly private weddings organised by VIPs and celebrities.

Why a wedding on Lake Como
Magical atmosphere, luxurious villas surrounded by nature and manicured gardens.
The villas on Lake Como today have stood on the tranquil shores of the lake since the 16th century.
Lake Como is all that, but also more. The bride and groom find themselves immersed in one of the most artistically, historically and culturally preserved places in the world.
Villa d’Este, just to give a few examples, inspired Alfred Hitchcock. It was there that he shot the famous film “Pleasure Garden”.
But Lake Como is also literature, towards the south you will find Villa Manzoni. It is here that Alessandro Manzoni spent his youth and these are the places that inspired the author of “I promessi sposi” (The Betrothed).
Not to mention Ossuccio, famous for its Isola Comacina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Villa Passalacqua and Villa Balbianello. The latter are also famous for having hosted some scenes from: Agent 007 and Star Wars.
The entire lake coast is a succession of locations and villas. Many of them allow you to organise your wedding on Lake Como. Locations that can be reached directly by boat for a unique entrance to be immortalised in a videography service.
Couples from Italy and abroad dream of getting married on Lake Como, knowing that the organisation will be impeccable, the memories indelible and the cuisine delicious. How not to mention the dishes of perch from the lake seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, vegetables and berries typical of the area.VIPs and celebrities, Lake Como is a coveted location
Getting married on lake Como
Many celebrities have chosen to hold their wedding and reception on Lake Como, and are prepared to travel thousands of kilometres in order not to miss out on the locations.
This is the case of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. The couple fell in love on the lake and returned for their wedding. They decided on the enchanting Villa Pizzo.
Villa Pizzo is a noble residence built in the seventeenth century on the promontory of the Gulf of Cernobbio. The villa offers: a luxury catering service, beautiful gardens, centuries-old shrubs, original statues dating back to 1800, large interior rooms with frescoes in neoclassical style.
A wedding on Lake Como was also the choice of Daniel Ek, best known for having founded Spotify, and Sofia Lavender. Two locations were chosen: Villa Pliniana, located on the right bank of the lake for the morning ceremony and the 5-star Hotel Sereno for the evening.
The hotel is the ultimate expression of luxury. The modern design blends perfectly with the surroundings.
Couples are sure to find the ideal location, benefiting from an unforgettable experience thanks also to the 30 extra-luxury rooms.
The list of celebrities who have chosen Lake Como as their wedding venue is a long one. Martine McCutcheon and Jack McManus chose Villa del Balbianello, another historic building dating back to the late 1700s.
Villa del Balbianello has a large park, panoramic areas and direct access to the lake.
The internal structure will leave you spellbound: an imposing entrance and beautiful frescoes give the villa an even more magical appearance.
Continuing our journey along the shores of Lake Como, we suggest you take a look at the Lido di Lenno and the Menaggio suites.

Lido di Lenno and the Menaggio suites
Lido di Lenno, like the other villas and hotels described so far, will leave you speechless.
The bride and groom can enjoy a place nestled between the mountains and the Gulf of Venus.
The reception, obviously by the lake, is attended to in every detail. The kitchen offers selected, local food, and the lakeside shuttle service is a plus.
The flagship of the location are the Menaggio suites. They are all flats with a view of Lake Como, and are carefully designed and furnished.
The suites are located on two floors of a historic building in the centre of Menaggio.
The town is characterised by its lakeside promenade, the old town, typical boutiques and craft shops and well-kept flowerbeds and gardens.
A perfect location, in short, the bride and groom have the lake just a few metres away and all the main services of the place, and Bellagio and Varenna can be reached by boat.
Getting married on Lake Como, the winning partnership between wedding planner and videographer
Lake Como, as we have seen, is one of the best places in the world to get married.
It is here that actors and celebrities choose their ideal location from the many villas and hotels.
Working as a videographer, when I have the opportunity to return to these places, I immediately have the feeling that I have the perfect setting for a unique and spectacular piece of videography.
The organisation of a wedding requires perfect coordination between all the people involved in making sure the day is perfect, which is why wedding planners always envisage adding a videographer to the classic photography services. A professional who makes the wedding film, discreetly watching and capturing moments, smiles and emotions through a lens.
