Timeless beauty and modern minimalism are combined in this romantic Lake Como intimate wedding. Elena (Benevent Planner) and I wanted to create an inspirational design with a color scheme that could transfer to any season. The shoot took place at the stunning Villa Bianca Stucchi in Cernobbio. The Villa has recently opened its’ doors and offers the opportunity to couples to wed in the shores of Lake Como surrounded by beautiful ’19th century architecture and boiserie, with halls, terrace and garden that overlook the lake. Local dried flowers, lunaria, gypsophila, cotton flowers, twigs and greenery were used for the floral arrangements, creating romantic settings in the inside, framing architecture details in the halls where our couple and guests got ready and enjoyed their time together.
The symbolic ceremony took place inside and a beautiful spot with an organic flower arrangement was created around the main fireplace. Our bride Beatrice was absolutely flawless in her Tara Lauren Jolene gown and her look was completed with a beautiful and unconventional headpiece from Bridal Turban. Definitely a great choice for a modern bride attentive on fashion trends. For our groom Richard we opted for a tailored light-grey suit made by Linneo Archivable Clothing while the bridesmaids wore mismatched Jenny Yoo dresses. Figli dei Fiori – Como created a stunning scene with an hanging floral installation above the reception table in the main hall, overlooking the lake. The table design was kept simple and clean using lot of candles and a cascading silk runner with sewed flowers to add movement, combining neutral colors and DIY elements (hand dyed napkins and hand painted glasses). A touch of copper was added to the table with cutlery and foiled place cards designed by me (take a look at Camilla Anchisi Design) together with the bespoke invitations. Tables, dishes and chairs made available by Sunlake Catering, were chosen to evoke the boiserie and decor inside the villa. Everything was carefully studied to make this Lake Como intimate wedding a unique event. Couldn’t be more excited to have worked with this talented team of vendors to make this vision come to life! A special thanks goes to Elena of Benevent Planner and the amazing team of Sunlake Catering!
