The venue is great and you will agree after you see this sweet wedding.
Natasha was such a sweetheart to write about her wedding and to share it with us for inspiration. The pictures are beautiful, so is the view and the couple!
Many thanks, Natasha!
“Our wedding was on the 3rd June 2016. We are from the UK but decided on Italy for our wedding straight away. We then looked at many different locations around Italy but decided on Lake Como. I was adamant I did not want a hotel for my wedding venue and I didn’t want any other people other than my guests at the venue – exclusivity was a high priority for me.
I then found the castle online and instantly thought it would be perfect for my wedding. We then went to visit the castle in April 2015 and immediately booked it. We then visited again in September 2015 and took our parents to show them the venue.
We stayed in Bellagio with all 70 of our guests who all travelled from the UK. On the morning of the wedding, we had arranged boats to pick our guests up and the bridal party from Bellagio and dropped to Lecco. Transfers were then waiting for them at Lecco port to take them up to the castle.
The ceremony started at 12.30pm outside in the castle grounds. We had a string quartet for the ceremony and for 1 hour of the aperitif hour. We then had a jazz band for the rest of the aperitif until we moved into the castle for the dinner. After dinner, we moved back into the courtyard for dessert and the jazz band continued to play for a few more hours. The cutting of the cake then took place with the back drop of the lake. We then danced into the night with a DJ and a free bar for our guests which everyone loved!
The theme of my wedding was very neutral and rustic. Everything was white with lots of foliage and rustic pieces throughout. Our guest book was a vintage map of Italy and our theme for the dinner was travel as myself and my husband are well travelled. The table plan was a vintage map of the world and each table was a country we had visited together. We had vintage polaroid pictures of us in each country dotted around each of the tables.”
I hope you enjoyed every bit of it because we definitively did. And don’t hesitate to share, like or comment.
