Every couple has their own personality, which comes through in their wedding choices. We spend a good deal of time talking to real brides and bridegrooms, attending real weddings and working with many photographers to capture the spirit and essence of these Italian Lakes celebrations. We think that it is important to feature weddings like these which show realism, inspiration and what's new in a very different way from our carefully planned and executed feature stories.
Let these real wedding success stories inspire your own!

We love Italy: we love its people, its language, its food, its culture, its nature, etc. Therefore, getting married in Italy was the obvious choice. But where? After thorough research and multiple research weekends in Italy (oh, the sacrifices one has to make…) we came to the conclusion that it would have to be in the picturesque Orta San Giulio.
This lovely town even has its town hall on the lake...
Our wedding was in spring which I thought should be reflected in the floral scheme. I had some very unique and specific ideas regarding what I wanted which unfortunately meant I couldn't simply show a florist a photograph and ask him to copy it.
I spent a lot of time with Monika explaining my vision and I think the challenge of trying out something new...
For our wedding in Stresa, Lake Maggiore we had special ideas of the art of photos. The photos should be taken very natural, many close-ups and moment-shoots from us but also from all our guests.
By good references we found Estella & Diego.
Young, very nice and friendly and all the time professional they accompanied us the whole day...
Words cannot fully explain how perfect our wedding day was, not just for us, but also for the rest of our family and friends who came out to Italy with us to share in our special day. The location was breath-taking, the weather was beautiful and the reception was extravagant, to say the least.
Lake Maggiore is the perfect wedding location. I am so pleased that we decided to get married in Italy....
Getting married on the Lake was my childhood dream. When the time for organization of the great day has come, I've tried to make my dream come true. Lake Orta was the instinctive choice. I've heard about it from friends who went there for a weekend and reported its beauty to me.
We went there too for an exploring weekend and seeing it with my eyes was even more beautiful!
