Amey & Naz eloped in Italy, getting married in the old stone arches of Ossuccio Town Hall with just 2 witnesses & riding around the lake on a beautiful Venetian boat. We stopped for gelato at their favourite place in Lenno, took photos outside Villa del Balbianello  and then took some relaxed portraits in the grounds of Villa Carlotta, one of the most stunning gardens in Italy, before they ended the day with a romantic private dinner in the grounds of the Grand Hotel Tremezzo. Amey looked amazing in a gown by Grace Loves Lace with her hair out & simple bouquet of white flowers & greenery.

“When we decided to elope we knew Lake Como was the only place we wanted to go. It’s so beautiful, we love it there and it was where Naz proposed.”

In the morning we took the ferry to Bellagio to pick up flowers & choose a cheap & cheerful wedding ring for Naz & my sewing skills were put to good use when the strap on Amey’s dress broke! I loved every second of this magical day, it was such an honour to witness these two souls get married in this amazing place and to capture their relaxed elopement for them. Lake Como is definitely one of my favourite places too. I can’t think of a much better day, enjoying the lake in the sun, the sweeping mountain views, eating gelato & wandering around beautiful gardens. This is what wedding dreams are made of.

I can’t wait to share more from this day but for now, here are a few previews from Amey & Naz’s relaxed, romantic elopement in Lake Como, Italy.
