Here you will see our final wedding of this fantastic 2015 wedding season.

We opened September with a special event: Jessica and Marisa’s wedding on Lake Orta on September 3rd. Our first same sex symbolic wedding on Lake Orta! Lake Orta was the great romantic scenario for these two lovely girls coming from South Africa. Marisa and Jess tied the knot in the garden of Villa Gippini at San Rocco hotel under a wonderful floral arch created by La Piccola Selva Floral Designer. The ceremony was officiated by our great celebrant Riccardo.
About 100 guests coming from different country joined this wonderful couple for the reception and party to follow at Hotel San Rocco.
Such an unique occasion for us to celebrate the first LGBT wedding on Lake Orta!
