More and more couples are choosing to elope. An intimate, personal and touching wedding just about the two of you and Lake Como has many wonderful venues that are perfect for a wedding elopement.
Lake Como has long been considered a breathtaking and romantic wedding destination with historical villas, rustic restaurants and wonderful mountain views but soon-to-be weds are choosing to go smaller and smaller making their Lake Como wedding more intimate and memorable.
The first step is to choose from one of the many magical wedding venues that Lake Como has to offer. You could choose to get married back home and have a symbolic ceremony here in Lake Como or have a civil ceremony where you’ll be legally married on the shores of Lake Como.
Villa Balbianello is a breathtaking Lake Como wedding location. The ceremony is held under the loggia wonderful arches which are just for you during the ceremony with sweeping lake views both up and down Lake Como making it stunning for photos. After the ceremony, the well cared for gardens make a wonderful backdrop for more snaps before sailing off to an evening dinner venue, just the two of you.
Villa Cipressi, an elegant villa in the quaint Lake Como Town of Varenna has an intimate wedding terrace overlooking the lake. Long stretching gardens are perfect for photos and perfect for gazing at the views (and each other) with a glass of prosecco in hand. You could have a romantic candle light evening in the romantic villa courtyard, under the vine covered pergola watching the sun go down across the lake or opt for a rustic local restaurant after a trip out on a boat.
Villa Monastero has some of the most beautiful kept gardens in Lake Como and this could be the backdrop of your own Lake Como elopement. A small covered terrace with views across Lake Como, Varenna and stunning villas is the perfect spot of an elopement. After the ceremony, hop on a boat and head for a wonderful restaurant for a magical wedding dinner.
Once you have decided on the venue, we can start organising the rest of your elopement. Eloping is just about the two of you, but your friends and family at home love to see your wedding photos. There are many Lake Como wedding photographers who offer shorter elopement services, snapping those special moments you don’t want to forget. We’ll help you with all the other details and suppliers, too.
There are stunning lake side wedding reception venues as well in small villages or larger towns, right by the lake or up in the hills. We will help you choose just what you’d like and add those little extras like flowers or candles to make it magical and romantic.
