LAKE COMO

LAKESIDE VILLA

 

F&P’s destination wedding took place in Lake Como, Italy, hosting approximately 110 guests. The three day event took place at a private villa on the lake which created a beautiful setting for an unforgettable few days.

On the first day we arranged a rehearsal dinner, which took place in the Italian gardens along the front of the Villa for 50 guests. Lemons and herbs were used as the table centrepieces here with natural style candles and a family style Italian dining experience. The following day was the wedding day, their symbolic ceremony was held in front of the lake framed by a beautiful, timeless flower filled arch. A piano and singer played our bride down the aisle.

The drinks reception was held within the villa gardens, with lounge seating and areas for guests to explore. Italian style canapés were served on trays, along with a choice of Italian style drinks. Our bride and groom took a traditional lake boat out during this time to get some beautiful photos against the stunning backdrop that Lake Como provides.

Our colour scheme for this day was white and green, so for the dinner we had a transparent marquee with three long tables. A floral runner of beautiful white florals adorned the tables with dinner candles in ivory and olive green. On each plate setting was a gold foiled menu, a personalised name card with a wax seal, gold edged crystal glassware and a linen napkin tied with a white chiffon bow. Classic Italian music was played during the dinner to really set the scene.

Following dinner everyone made their way into the dancefloor area, which felt like a magnificent elegant ballroom with chandeliers. Here we had a DJ where musicians played alongside (percussionist and a saxophonist). Everyone partied the night away whilst sipping their hand-crafted cocktails.

The day after the wedding a pool party took place, keeping the guests fed and watered with an Italian vintage pizza truck and a Prosecco and Aperol Spritz truck under the warm sunshine. The DJ and saxophonist played the beats across the afternoon whilst guests had a dip in the pool or chilled on their sunbeds.
