If you are considering a destination wedding or simply a celebration with European vibes, then this Italian shoot will totally seal the deal. Held at Villa Sola Cabiati on the shores of Lake Como, it pairs 18th century opulence with wildly romantic details planned by Italian Weddings and Events, lush florals by Dario Benvenuti and images captured by Jacqui Cole.
This editorial took place at the stunning Villa Sola Cabiati along the shores of Tremezzo, Lake Como. Stepping inside of the Villa truly takes you back in time as you glance around the original fresco covered walls and endless Italian art that lines the corridors. Unsurprisingly, the Villa was the main source of inspiration for this shoot. Dusty blues and soft peach tones were pulled from the fresco wall coverings and created a romantic setting for the shoot.
Original pieces were included in the tablescape: the stunning cream and blue upholstered chairs are original to the Villa and even the plates feature the Serbelloni family crest. Dario Benvenuti created a stunning scene with the floral design. Endless vines and florals drape over sheet music, candelabras and organic fruit. The couple spent the day getting ready together in a suite overlooking the Como waters, standing on the incredible floral-lined steps for the ceremony and sailing away on a vintage boat as Mr&Mrs.
The bride was wearing a beautiful lace applique wedding dress with an illusion neckline and a train. Her blush embellished shoes were amazing and chic ones, and an embellished headpiece added a refined touch to her look. The groom was rocking a classical black tuxedo.
