They chose Lake Como as the perfect set for their romantic day in Italy. In a sunny and lovely summer day they said Yes, I do in a beautiful catholic church in Varenna. Then they got a long party with live music in a wonderful beach club they chose for their reception venue.
Getting ready on Lake Como shores
Marie and her bridesmaids spent few days in a beautiful house overlooking Lake Como. They enjoyed wonderful landscapes and lake life to be confident and relaxed for the wedding day. Marie designed by herself her wedding gown: a gorgeous fairy tale dress. She looked like a real princess!
Marie chose a lovely bouquet with white daisies, lavender and delicate baby’s breath.
In the meantime Sebastian got ready in another stunning historical house overlooking Lake Como. He wore a lovely light blue suit, a sort of homage to his and Marie’s eyes!
An Italian catholic wedding ceremony
Varenna is one of the most beautiful villages on Lake Como shores. It is cozy, traditional and picturesque. It is a real pleasure for all guests’ eyes who came there by boat. They walked along beautiful ancient roads to reach the pretty catholic church where wedding ceremony was planned. The beauty of the church was enhanced by delicate and refined floral decorations. On every pew and on the altar and balusters we placed elegant bunches of baby’s breath, white roses and hydrangeas.
Furthermore, waiting for the bride, there were five sweet little ladies in white dresses, with romantic floral crowns.
Our lovely couple and their families and friends were really moved to bless their love with an Italian catholic wedding ceremony, accompanied the sound of an organ of 1800.
After the morning ceremony, Marie and Sebastian got out the church under a shower of lavender flowers and seeds, a very funny and joyful moment for them and all guests!
On the church yard our bride and groom had some lovely wedding shots taken by great photographer Cristiano Ostinelli. After that bride groom and all guests had a pleasant cocktail before going back to the boats leading to reception venue.
A long party at Lake Como Beach Club!
Even if Marie and Sebastian had a very traditional wedding ceremony, they wanted a special, casual and funny reception giving their guests the possibility to enjoy a day on Lake Como. What a beautiful idea! A wedding reception on a Beach club!
A perfect aperitif buffet with delicious Italian food and wines, tables set under beach umbrellas to eat and relax, the possibility to dive into the lake and a traditional old italian ice-cream cart for ice cream lovers! All was accompanied by great live music to dance the night way!
Even dinner was really unforgettable! Under an elegant marquee, in another part of the beach club, guests and our bride and groom e had a delicious meal overlooking the lake. Beautiful tables with white tablecloths, refined floral centrepieces and original Italian oil bottles, personalised with the menu printed on them. Just perfect!
Marie and Sebastian had the cake cutting in the beach club garden: another special moment. All guests were clapping and smiling at them!
The night of this perfect day went on dancing in the beach club disco.
All guests had a great Italian experience and Marie and Sebastian blessed their love with a wonderful wedding and presence of beloved family and friends!
