Sophie and Fabien’s wedding at Villa Pizzo was a dream. The venue chosen is one of the most beautiful and amazing on Lake Como, needless to say, one of my favourites. Not only because of the place but also because of the atmosphere and authenticity historical villa, beautiful gardens and its fascinating terrace with 180 degree view on the lake and mountains. It easy to understand why John Legend and Chrissy Teigen chosen exactly this place for their wedding some years ago… We started the day at the nearest Villa Gesumin for bride and groom preparations and later reach Villa Pizzo for a welcome aperitivo before celebrations start. Sophie was a stunning vision in her Riki Dalal gown, a modern yet timeless dress with hand sewn floral accents, while Fabien was dapper in his blue tailored suit by Les Nouveaux Ateliers. The beautiful outdoor ceremony on the terrace was full of heartfelt moments and speeches from the two families which left few guests with dry eyes. After they were officially announced husband and wife, we took advantage of the beautiful spots the villa offers for some portrait while guests were enjoying cocktails and music in the Italian Garden.
Because of the unpredictable weather on that week, the original plan of a totally al fresco dinner changed and the couple opted for a covered tent structure in the courtyard. Even so, the reception area looked gorgeous with lovely decor and details. There were beautiful florals and greenery, and tons of candles featured throughout the room, set up by the amazing and talented team of Figli dei Fiori Como.
The rest of the night was spent dining with delicious food from AFM Banqueting, celebrating with speeches, toasts, and a serious dance party which started with a surprising Bulgarian dance group, in honour of the bride’s family background. The whole day was perfect and it was such a pleasure to be a part of it all.
