Are you looking for a picturesque destination wedding that perfectly blends romance, adventure, and vibrant Italian culture?

Look no further than the enchanting shores of Lake Como. Chevonne and Guido, an adventurous couple whose love story blossomed in the UK and found its ultimate celebration near to Guido's hometown at the picturesque Villa Giulia - Alterrazzo on the stunning Lake Como.

The morning started off with Chevonne getting ready in the bridal suite on the top floor, Chev's romantic hair was put together by Hairbooth 72 and flawless make-up by Lomardi Makeup. Her dress hung beautifully between the white rustic shutters of the suite, flown in from the UK from luxury boutique The Dress Teddington by gown designer Stephanie Allin.

Meanwhile, Guido arrived to the venue and finished getting ready with his Mum and Dad on the back terrace, he then drove his beloved baby blue Vespa down the road to be greeted by his hyped best friends all cheering him in to the courtyard of Villa Giulia in true Italian style.

Their wedding day was a fusion of elegance and joy, with their ceremony, spoken in both Italian and English was set against the backdrop of the Villa's lush gardens filled with vibrant local florals by Carolina Stefanonia. As the sun dips over the mountains, guests indulged in an abundance of canapés, freshly cut cured meats, and fun cocktails on the terrace overlooking the enchanting view of Lake Como.

Meanwhile, Chevonne and Guido stole away for intimate couples' photos aboard a boat gliding across the glistening waters of Lake Como with champagne in hand. The result? Breathtaking images capturing the essence of their love and happiness against the backdrop of one of Italy's most iconic sceneries.

The celebrations continued, their epic entrance was a roar of cheers and napkins twirling in the air. Each course of the indulgent meal was enhanced by heartfelt toasts and laughter, creating an atmosphere of warmth and togetherness. The speeches were delivered in both English and Italian, weaving together the couple's backgrounds and honouring their union in a celebration that broke language barriers.

Adding to the Italian wedding festivities, an awesome saxophonist filled the air with epic dance tunes, igniting the terrace with good vibes and fun energy. The evening antics evolved with glow sticks and non-stop dancing all to a brilliant local band who kept the party going until late.

From the first dance to the last, Chev and Guido's wedding was a day filled of laughter, love, and unforgettable moments.

Capturing the magic of this extraordinary day was a truly incredible experience as a destination wedding photographer. Everything from the tender exchange of vows to the jubilant cheers of loved ones, I feel every frame tells a story of love, adventure, and the timeless beauty of Lake Como.
