Como Wedding venue Not a palazzo

Find your luxury Lake Como Wedding Venue Style that’s not a Palazzo

A new Lake Como Wedding Venue option?

When looking for your Lake Como wedding venue, it’s easy to think the only choice you have are the grand palazzos. But what if you want an intimate wedding to enjoy all that the Lake Como area has to offer, without the grand palace or hotel feel? Is it doable? Of course it is, read on how to do it.

More Lake Como wedding venue choice than you think

It’s easy to think that Lake Como weddings only revolve around the Lake itself, yet if you dream of a micro wedding or elopement in Italy, you may think the area is not for you. Yet Lake Como is a magical area of Lombardy, so you needn’t limit yourself just because your guest numbers may be smaller. Tempted by the intimate farmhouse vibe of Tuscany weddings but want those killer wedding photos of you and your love on Lake Como in a traditional vaporina? This could be the ideal wedding venue plan for you.

Intimate Lake Como Wedding Venues

Search the independent wedding venues

With a little search, or better still, find a Lake Como wedding planner such as the team at Elleff to search for you, and you will find an array of wedding suitable AirBnb’s such as this one, found in the hills above the Lake in Tremezzo. You can look at independent holiday rentals and luxury villas, to create a more intimate vibe for your wedding. Just make sure they allow events and parties.

Lake Como Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

The intimate ceremony in the farmhouse garden was a true connection to nature not always seen in the glamourous wedding venues around Lake Como. By aiming for a private villa or farmhouse wedding venue, your Lake Como wedding can be the emotive and intimate experience in the garden surrounded by mountains and nature. It can also add an extra dimension to your wedding by having your loved ones staying with you for the ultimate house party – not to mention an exclusive feel if you want privacy away from the Lake Como tourists.

The party stops when you want it to

After your dreamy outdoor wedding ceremony in Italy, you can enjoy the finest al fresco dining that Italy has to offer. Exclusive and high end local restaurants may not offer wedding catering for higher guest numbers, but would be willing to provide a stunning Italian wedding meal for a handful of guests. If you had a memorable meal in a restaurant on a previous vacation to Lake Como, why not ask them if they would cater for a small party in a villa?

Small is beautiful

When choosing your intimate Lake Como Wedding Venue in the hills, don’t feel you have to play small with any of your other requirements. Having the best food, an abundance of beautiful flowers and amazing outfits can still be the norm, and we certainly still recommend having two photographers. When we photograph your Lake Como wedding, we can capture every angle, from every emotional tear to throwing shapes on the dancefloor. Less people doesn’t mean capturing it all means any less. We love shooting Italian weddings big or small, and as Lina is an Italian national, we can be of assistance in many other parts of your wedding planning in Italy too.

A hilltop Lake Como Wedding Venue means you can have privacy as well as your Lake wedding photos

When choosing your intimate wedding venue in Italy, you can look for opportunities for the best of both worlds. When photographing this AirBnB Lake Como wedding venue, we also arranged a post-wedding photoshoot on Lake Como itself. Hiring a beautiful vaporina for an hour, we were able to give our couple the true experience of a Lake Como wedding on the water, without compromising their desire to have an intimate wedding in a garden. Best of both worlds for your intimate Italian wedding? We think so!
