In spite of this we can say that Lake Maggiore could be a fantastic idea for your elope in Italy!
Lake Maggiore is charming, luxury and enchanting. But it can be also incredibly romantic and intimate without considering the great views it can offer to your eyes!
Eloping on Lake Maggiore is pamper you with a luxury staying. Stresa will let you feel like living in Belle Epoque time just elegant and fine.Villa Giulia, a Catholic ceremony in the church of Sacro Monte in Ghiffa or even a romantic symbolic blessing in one of the most beautiful hotels in Stresa such as Grand Hotel des Iles Borromées, Regina Palace Hotel or even on the top of a stunning skybar overlooking a magnificent view!Yingying and Matt chose something different though but still very romantic.
They opted for a simple and charming staying in Stresa. They rented a private villa on the hills over Stresa and spent some days over there. They stayed there with their very close family coming from US. They were 6 in total.
A wonderful way spend a summer vacation in Italy. With such a fantastic view!
On the day of the wedding they all got ready at the villa where also photographers reach them for some very first photos before the ceremony.
Yingying wanted a pretty bouquet made with white and light pink English roses, lavender and some Mediterranean herbs. The centrepiece for the table of the reception and buttonhole had the same romantic style.
A simple civil ceremony with a real Italian flair
For their civil ceremony they chose the town hall of Stresa.
It is a charming villa owned by Stresa municipality in the very center of the village facing the main harbour.
They wanted a simple ceremony with a real Italian flair. Civil ceremony room is one of the most beautiful of the villa and it is furnished with antiques and tapestry.
After the ceremony and some photos in front of the town hall, Matt and Yingying took the chance to have a lovely walk on Stresa promenade. You can see some lovely shots taken by Independent Pictures team. They even decided to refresh a little in the blue waters of the lake!
They got back to the villa where they stayed for their Italian elope. A personal chef prepared a gourmand dinner for the small group. What a great idea!
Cake was delivered to follow a romantic white cake with themed flowers on top.
We left the group there enjoying a fantastic summer evening overlooking the lake under a sky dotted of thousand of stars.
What a great romantic way to celebrate a special day… a special elopement on Lake Maggiore.
