Always & Forever – An Italian Romance

If you want to know what Italian wedding dreams are made of, have a look at Melissa and Clayton’s intimate wedding ceremony in Lake Como, Italy. The venue Villa Aura del Lago (Bellagio), is simply beautiful and of course, Lake Como itself needs no introduction!

Because of the date (3rd October 2019), Bespoke Unique Weddings & Events wanted to give an Indian summer/autumnal feel, so they used a lot of copper and cinnamon type colors, lots of warm tones, and antiques where appropriate.

The bride was looking ethereal in a stunning Le Spose di Giò gown along with hair accessory from Tocados Le Touquet, and the groom wore a burgundy dress which is emerging as a trendy color by Area 2 Rezzonico. The ceremony was organized by the lake where the guests enjoyed a joyous violin performance along with classical mocktails.

Lake Italian aperitivo

As the sun began to set the charm of the outdoor dining terrace came to life, with lanterns, candles and twinkling fairy lights in the trees above the dining tables. A rustic Italian aperitivo was then enjoyed on the terrace, and later dinner was served in the beautifully decorated orangery dining room providing the magical wedding reception atmosphere for Melissa and Clayton.
