Enchanting: that’s the word that best describes Villa del Balbianello, a wedding venue like no other. Although, to be honest, words don’t do justice to this splendid palace, that decorates Lake Como like a precious crown studded with gems. If you want to feel like royalty on your wedding day, this is the place for you.
Villa del Balbianello wedding: unparalleled allure on Lake Como
The first thing you should know about Villa del Balbianello – and that makes it more exclusive and romantic than any other wedding venue on Lake Como – is that the only way to get there is from the water. You and your guests will arrive by boat – a water taxi, or maybe a vintage motorboat – and, after docking, will walk the beautiful terraces up to the villa.
Usually, at Villa del Balbianello, the wedding ceremony takes place inside Loggia Durini, with its iconic three-arched structure whose columns are decorated by a vine that looks like a work of art. And the view over the lake, from there, is glorious.
After promising eternal love to your spouse, you could have a cocktail in the finely landscaped, amazing gardens, caressed by the warm sunset light. Followed by a delicious dinner inside Loggia Segré – for intimate parties with a maximum of fifty guests – or in the garden, with a marquee placed next to the unique umbrella-shaped tree that became sort of a symbol of Villa del Balbianello.
Just imagine the experience that you and your guests will live, and the unforgettable memories you will keep and cherish forever.
Live your dream wedding at Villa del Balbianello
In this 18th Century abode, currently owned and protected by FAI (the Italian National Trust), your eyes will fill with beauty and wonder wherever you look.
It shouldn’t surprise you that, over time, it became a must-see for tourists and one of the most sought-for wedding venues in the world. And that it was chosen not only as a backdrop for classy and exclusive events, but also as a movie setting – for James Bond’s Casino Royale and Star Wars, just to name a couple.
