Being back in the relaxed atmosphere and enchanting scenery of Lake Como surrounded by mountains rolling down to the waters edge is always a special experience.
This wedding we shoot last summer took place at Villa del Balbianello, famous not only for it’s refined and sophisticated beauty but also for the James Bond movie Casino Royale was filmed there, and the same villa can also be seen in Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones. The Villa with its panoramic terraced garden dominated by the elegant “loggia”, and the view across the Lake Como are absolutely breathtaking. The ceremony took place in the loggia facing the lake. The bride reached Villa Balbianello by water taxi while her groom and guests were waiting for her at the Villa. After the ceremony we had a fascinating boat transfer sipping a glass of champagne while heading back to Villa Serbelloni where the reception was held. This location has something special that captures your heart, and…. If you want to enjoy a slice of the Bond lifestyle, this is highly recommended!
