Ying and Billy chose to have their dream Italian Wedding at Villa Sola Cabiati on Lake Como. Lake Como the chosen retreat of the rich and famous, where A-listers like George Clooney, Madonna, and Richard Branson have taken up residence. All hoping to enjoy that la dolce vita. Chosen for its more relaxed way of life and beautiful scenery. It isn’t hard to see why our couple would plan their three-day wedding here. 3 days and 3 dresses in high-end luxury locations. This wedding was a visual feast from beginning to end. Scroll down to read more about their big day.
Situated at the foot of the Alps, Lake Como is surrounded by roaming mountains and lush, towering hills, making it one of the most picturesque landscapes. Ying and Billy decided to cross the lake in a private boat, with the warm Italian sun reflected beautifully on the bride-to-be’s glittering dress by Berta and the groom-to-be also looked handsome in his tux. After the photoshoot, the couple sailed across the lake to their reception dinner at the luxury 5-star Grand Hotel Tremezzo, where they were joined by their close friends and family.
Ying and Billy chose to say their vows at the Villa Sola Cabiati. Constructed in the 16th century by the Duke of Serbelloni, in the neoclassical style, complete with marble balconies. The villa was built in a time of decadence where no expense was spared in making it the most spectacular villa on the lake. With interiors that captivate with elaborate frescoes by renowned artists of the day, and priceless collections of tapestries, paintings, and Chinese vases. Villa Sola Cabiati is an artistic masterpiece. Every corner of this villa and its perfectly manicured Italian garden was a photographer’s feast.
Ying and Billy decided on the front of the villa as the place for their ceremony, under an arch of delicate pink roses in front of the grand lake. Our couple fitted right in with Billy’s white suit and Ying’s fishtail dress by Galia Lahav, echoing the colours of the villa. After a day of love and sentiment, there was still time to party, which our couple did throughout the night, making new memories that their guests soon won’t forget.
The next day the celebrations were not over, as a farewell party was organised for guests. So our couple could say goodbye to all those they hold dear. The party was held at the pool of the Villa Sola Cabiati. Here the guests were treated to food prepared by an Italian chef.
