It’s a joy to watch the short highlights video of this elegant and much anticipated wedding in Italy filmed by Missing Piece Films at Villa Aura del Lago, on the shores of Lake Como. Gemma and Tom’s wedding was so full of joy as family and friends had finally been able to come together and celebrate this wonderful occasion after years of Covid induced separation. Guests flew in from all over to attend this wonderful wedding in Italy.
This still privately owned, exquisitely preserved Lake Como Villa breathes the elegance and glamour of generations that came before us. Located on the shores of the lake and nestled in a manicured botanical garden with eons-old cedars and cypress, this glamorous location was perfect for an elegant Italian inspired wedding. Our couple photo and video shoot took us exploring the extensive Italianate park, a perfect backdrop with its twinkling fountains, white marble statues and long staircases. These pretty features are very much what you’d expect to see at a wedding in Italy and immediately places this on the map at the spot that says “Italy”.
In the meantime guests mingled in the shade of the tall trees overlooking the twinkling lake on a hot, hot summer’s day as Andre and his group Entourage entertained them on the sax. An excellent vibe with the prosecco flowing, set the scene for a wonderful evening that was to follow. After the exceptional and heartfelt wedding speeches (which we are always thrilled to have for the all-important audio aspect of our wedding videos), the couple and their guests took to the dance floor under glittering antique crystal chandeliers which set the tone for the dance party that followed.
This wedding in Italy was planned to perfection. The villa is steeped in history and filled with stories of the past. The photos on the wall are a nod to the history of this family at its lakeside villa. Villa Aura del Lago oozes Italian style and elegance and must have hosted many beautiful family weddings in Italy in its day.
