Located at the foot of the Alps in Italy, Lake Como is one of the most stunning wedding locations in the world. It’s not surprising that many famous actors and VIPs own property on the lake in Italy’s Lombardy region, and that every year couples flock to tie the knot on its stunning shores.
To the north lie the Alps, which are snow-dusted for much of the year, while the lakeshore is lined with cypress trees and ornate villas that date as far back as the 16th century. Villa Balbiano is one such venue and the scene of this blush rose wedding that was created by Janna Brown Design.
Fluffy blush David Austin Wedding Roses play a big part in the wedding decor, perfectly complementing the sumptuous historical surroundings of Villa Balbiano. The outdoor wedding reception in the villa grounds is absolutely spectacular, with a luxurious rose-filled centerpiece running the length of the table, made up of Eugenie, Charity, Purity and Keira, and interspersed with pale pink taper candles.
The manicured trees and stately facade of the iconic villa provided the perfect backdrop for the romantic early evening event, with the fragrant roses and twinkling candles all adding to the soft ambiance. Villa Balbiano is the ideal location for a glamorous fairytale wedding, with its spectacular mountain views, immense Italian gardens, outdoor swimming pool and private pier. Inside, its historic interiors have been filled with the finest objets d’art and furniture of past centuries, sourced from Sotheby’s and Christie’s. Spectacular 17th-century frescoes painted by the Recchi brothers and Agostino Silva still decorate the walls, untouched by time.
“As the night drew to a close, the newlyweds made a stylish exit in a vintage Porsche, leaving guests in awe of the fashion-forward affair they had just witnessed,” explains Janna Brown. “From the divine wardrobe to the custom cocktails sipped on the shore of Lake Como, every detail was carefully curated to create a truly memorable wedding. The event was truly a celebration of love and style, set against the backdrop of one of the most iconic villas in the world.”
