Have your wedding photographs taken in the gorgeous surroundings of one of Lake Como’s most elegant hotels. The Villa d’Este is consistently bracketed among the world’s elite luxury hotels, thanks to its exquisite interior decorations, waterfront location and 25 acres of gardens. Built in 1568 as a palace for one of the most powerful cardinals in Italy, it has served as a playground for aristocrats from all over the world.
When you choose the Villa d’Este for your Lake Como wedding photographs, we will be able to create some unforgettable images. Be captured in your wedding outfits in front of 16th century mosaics, among the hotel’s beautiful flower gardens, or with the hotel’s statue of Hercules and the lion as a backdrop. Or walk arm-in-arm in front of the lake, with the mountains as a background as we find the perfect setup to memorialise your special day.
Inside the hotel, the photo opportunities continue. In the Colonne Room, the walls are covered in impressive paintings showing biblical scenes. The Flora Room includes a stunning image of Eros and Psyche – one of the greatest love affairs of Greek mythology. And the Canova Bar hosts statues of Adam and Eve by Renaissance master Marco Antonio Prestinari.
Clients can build a collection of wedding shots which capture every stage of their day. From preparation in the bridal suite to the arrival of guests, the ceremony, the throwing of the bouquet and the first dance, every moment can be captured and cherished forever.
And when we’ve taken a portfolio of shots and packed away our cameras, you will be able to spend some time in an incredible location. With plenty of sports facilities, exceptional scenery, fine dining and opulent bars on-site, the Villa d’Este also offers a fantastic place to unwind and enjoy your wedding beside Lake Como.
