Glamorous Lake Como Wedding
Lake Como offered a warm welcome to our star couple of the year and also one of the loveliest to work with. Bride and groom traveled from Norway with 100 guests to celebrate a fantastic 3 day wedding in Lake Como!
Planning this wedding was an absolute pleasure. This couple was fun, energetic and as you will see from the photos, absolutely stunning.
The festivities kicked off with an informal get together at a charming restaurant allowing everyone to relax and mingle while enjoying local delights and wines.
The day prior to the wedding I organized a relaxing day at the Bellagio Lido for all of the guests with private boat transfers, ending with an exclusive party at the TBeach of the luxury Grand Hotel Tremezzo. Guests were served an extensive menu of finger foods and assorted grilled meats and delicacies, while Prosecco flowed throughout the evening.
The wedding theme was "Art Nouveau" in keeping with the venue, with unique touches such as bespoke passport Italian wedding invitations designed by our graphic artist to keep to the theme throughout the entire day along with matching menus and seating chart.
On the wedding day, the Lake Como wedding ceremony was held next door at the unique Villa Carlotta with its world famous botanical gardens, outdoors of course so guests could take in the incomparable views of the lake! String music accompanied the ceremony.
After a romantic boat ride on a vintage Ruy boat and photos, our bride and groom joined their guests on the lake view terrace of the Grand Hotel Tremezzo for cocktails. There is no more glamorous setting for a wedding reception in Lake Como! 100 guests enjoyed a banquet accompanied by music followed by cutting of the cake and a first dance on the Regina Terrace under the stars.
Later - guests kicked off their heels to dance until the early morning in the private Escale Wine bar that was turned into a private discotheque. Tramezzini and more Prosecco kept everyone refueled until 3:00am!

Sorry I can't give you more constructive criticism, but we can't put out finger on anything that could be done better from your side.
Same goes for all of the providers. Blunotte - fantastic performance of the ceremonial songs! Same goes for the DJ and sax - WOW! Everyone was dancing their socks off and commented of how great it all was. Didn't get to hear the pianist unfortunately, but my mother said it was wonderful.
GHT has been a pleasure staying at as always, and very accommodating to our big Scandinavian crowd - even if some of our guests tried to break into the pool for a night swim..:) Amazing experience!
Barbara was great to have around - could see at once that she knew what she was doing. Looking forward to swing the photos ALOT!
Rita, and the lovely helper I can't remember the name of, NO WORDS. Made my day stress-free.
And yes, of course you can use my email as a reference. Would be happy to strongly recommend you for anyone who wants their dream wedding come true.
Let me know if there is any thing else we can help with.
Best wishes - E & L
