Elopement at Villa Balbiano

Elopement on Lake Como

Our elopement inspirational shoot by Koman Photography took place on the breath-taking shores of Lake Como, Italy at the exquisite Villa Balbiano. Creatively directed and planned by Rossini Weddings and styled by Saint and Sage., this shoot was the epitome of all that is beautiful and glamourous about Italian lakefront weddings.

Unsurprisingly, the Villa was the main source of inspiration for this shoot; we wanted to create ethereal imagery that is light, airy and mixed with an opulent palette of rich textures which we pulled from the fresco wall coverings.

Chiara Sperti created a stunning scene for the tablescape centerpiece with delicate shades of pink and pops of bright fuscia. The table was draped with a silk runner by Allegoria Textile Delightsand the candlelight offset the muted colours of the stone fresco walls and architectural elegance. The Elegance tableware range, paired with gold flatware and the pink Rosealine glassware from Table Set Rentals.were the perfect companions to the table design.

The bride started the day in delicate French lingerie by The Lace Atelier, and her stunning gown by Musat Brides was accessorised with Bella Belle Shoes, Karlin Anderson Rings and beautiful earrings by Lindsay Marie Designs. Her hair was gracefully styled by the ever-talented Frank Giacone and her make-up perfected by Veronica Tavella. The groom wore a classically sleek black suit by Isaia Menswear.

The three-tiered cake from Qualcosa diDolce was a masterful combination of modern design and romantic imagination, the ornate gold detail complimented the textures of the venue. And providing the perfect addition to any wedding - the prosecco reception was provided by the iconic little pop up prosecco van Bubble Bar Italia.

Complimenting the venue’s inspiration, a beautiful stationery suite was designed by NicNillas Ink., with a hand-drawn illustration of the Villa, produced on soft handmade paper with bronze envelopes.

Finally, as every Lake Como wedding must soak in the full expanse of the lake’s to-die-for views, our couple sailed away on a luxury Riva boat by Erio Lario, wearing swimwear by JETS.and resort wear by Isaia Menswear., with chic sunglasses by Finlay London,
