One of the most exclusive venues of Lake Como, Villa La Cassinella, for an unforgettable Editorial Wedding
Sometimes, it is incredibly refreshing and inspirational to gather around some of your favorite wedding vendors and start imagining: if we had to choose all the minor details, the plan, and the style of a wedding, how would we do that?
Inspiration Weddings are always an interesting way to create magic with your own hands and put your creative muscles to work!
Imagining and shooting this elopement-style inspiration wedding at villa La Cassinella, Lake Como was an absolute pleasure. You can see it for yourself!
Everything started with the choice of the venue – the majestic, private Villa La Cassinella, the only villa on the lake that is only accessible via its waters. Villa La Cassinella shares the same peninsula as Villa del Balbianello, and similarly to the latter, its luxurious architecture perfectly blends with the nature of Lake Como. Its seclusion and exclusiveness make it perfect for any couple looking for an intimate and luxurious wedding in one of the most spectacular venues on the Lake.
All the vendors taking part in this shooting were Italian: we wanted to celebrate our long history of artisanship and we built every detail of it by selecting the most suitable artists.
Being respectful of the environment of the Lake and having an eco-friendly shooting were also central to this inspirational wedding. The stationery was made using handmade, recycled paper and we chose to use the classic Lake Como rowboats instead of motorboats or water taxis.
We got the inspiration for the color palette from the Villa itself: soft orange, green, and peach pink designed to match and blend with the beauty of the Villa and the lake.
Both the bride and groom’s outfits are made by Italian manufacturers – the bride’s dress, specifically, was designed for this shoot and it’s a first model. The soft, pink fabric of the dress moved perfectly with the wind of Lake Como, and the handmade Italian flower lace wrapped perfectly around Beatrice’s body.
The models – a real couple, Beatrice and Paolo – shared their vows under a moon-shaped flower arch, and exchanged a diamond heirloom ring belonging to her grandmother.
As for every other detail, the floral design was heavily inspired by the Villa and by Lake Como: a cascade of colorful flowers framed the couple’s ceremony so perfectly. We chose a colorful table set for the wedding dinner, matching the beautiful color of the porch. A peach-pink embroidered tablecloth, hand-painted plates, and colorful flowers did the rest!
After the ceremony, we had a ride with the couple on a Lucia, a classic Lake Como rowing boat decorated with blackberry branches. A stunning shoot that was meant to celebrate the eternal beauty of Lake Como in all its uniqueness.
