The exquisite natural beauty of the Italian Lakes, framed by the snow-capped mountains of the Alps, is the ultimate romantic setting for a wedding in Italy. The cherished muse of the Romantic poets, the Italian lakes have been fashionable since Roman times and still attract an A-list clientele of celebrities and wealthy Milanese.
Quaint medieval fishing villages shelter along the shores with their pretty cobblestone streets, tiny harbors and ancient churches. Palatial lakeside villas with ornamental gardens full of hot pink oleanders and exotic palms dominate the water’s edge along with magnificent Belle Époque hotels.
Lake Como is by far the prettiest of the Northern Italian Lakes and an inspirational backdrop for our wedding photographers to work their magic. The lake takes the form of a “Y-shape” with the town of Bellagio sitting at the intersection of its three arms. Bellagio is certainly considered the “pearl” of Lake Como due to its unique position, but Varenna is equally as pretty and quieter. Walk along Varenna’s “Passeggiata degli Innamorati” (“Lovers’ Walkway”) which runs past the lake and leads to the center of this enchanting village with its colorful houses and stunning ornamental gardens.
Lake Maggiore and Lake Garda
Stresa is the main resort town of Lake Maggiore where luxury villas and elegant Liberty Style hotels line the waterfront. Dine alfresco and take in the panoramic views of the Borromean islands with the Alps as your backdrop beyond. Lake Garda’s Sirmione and Salo are lovely little resorts where you can take a romantic stroll along the lakeside of an evening, watching the twinkling lights of tiny villages across the lake and listening to the sound of the water lapping lazily at the shore.
Lake Como, Maggiore and Garda with their snow-capped mountains, clear blue water and warm sunny climate offer the perfect location for our photographer to create beautiful images of your wedding. Morlotti Studio’s Italian wedding photographers are looking forward to capturing the romance and elegance of your Italian Lake wedding.
