“Lake Como in Italy is my hometown. The lake sits on the Italy-Swiss border, dotted with small, idyllic towns and villas along the coast and throughout the surrounding mountains. Alessia, a very talented baker from Como, contacted me becuase she was putting together a team of creatives for a wedding inspiration shoot amd she wanted to do at a lovely villa on Como Lake. One of my big dreams is to be able to photograph a wedding on Como Lake, to be able to show people the beauty of where I come from and it just so happened that I was going to be in Italy for MY wedding at the same time so it was perfect! Our wedding planner, Leandra, is from Lugano, Switzerland, another idyllic city along the lake and she was able to truly understand the soul of our inspiration session: elegant, timeless, almost from another era, with a touch of luxury that brings out the character of Lake Como and of our historical villa.

We concentrated mainly on shades of nude and natural tones with a touch of light blue, copper and gold and green. A neutral colour palette with a touch of a vintage light blue was the perfect compliment to the historical architecture and refined finish of Villa Geno.

The bride wore a long dress with lace on the bodice and tulle along the skirt. It had a beautiful transparent back that gave femininity to her figure. She waited for her handsome groom on the pier, outstretched to the lake.

The table setting has a modern champagne sequin tablecloth and was designed to match with the vintage glasses and plates. Light blue, porcelain dishes with gold cutlery accompanied by old chandeliers and gold rose prisms gave the table a unique touch.

The stationery was written on handmade Italian recycled paper with touches of gold on an ivory paper. The flowers provided a romantic touch and colourful frame for the photos. Roses were coupled with different types of eucalyptus to provide contrast. The bouquet was wrapped in a long piece of light blue velvet that swayed in the breeze from the lake. The wedding cake and dessert display was stunning with soft golds merging into the light blue, surrounded by green leaves and the handmade roses on top illustrated Alessias true skill and passion.

We worked hard to make this inspiration a reality and during that incredible day, even the rain contributed to the atmosphere of the day. The delicate decorations and soft colours, together with floral hints on the pier and overlooking the magnificent Como Lake from this historical villa, all created our modern yet timeless wedding inspiration shoot.”
