Teresa+Alex | The most romantic elopement on the shore of Lake Como


There is a reason why I think this Elopement on Lake Como is the most romantic story I have had the pleasure of witnessing, but before that, here is some introduction to what you’ll see below. So, here is the ingredients list for this perfect recipe. 

  • A romantic, small luxury villa in a peaceful oasis nestled in an ancient quarry on the shores of Lake Como. If you’re searching for a peaceful retreat with a garden overlooking the Lake, Villa Torno is the ideal place to celebrate your love. 
  • A gloomy, rainy day with nobody around. It could be the perfect scenario if you care about intimacy the most. Even if you were hoping for a sunny day, celebrating your elopement with such a vibe is honestly priceless, and it will definitely be a story that needs to be told. 
  • A private cruise on the most classic boat, while the rain ripples the surface of the desert Lake.
  • A private dinner for two, carefully organized by an Italian chef and his team.
  • Last but not least – the most romantic man you could ever meet. When Teresa and Alex decided to elope – three years before – Alex had secretly started to learn to play the piano. As the wedding day approached, in agreement with the villa’s owner, he bought a piano and had it shipped to the villa itself so that he could play for Teresa immediately after the ceremony. 

And – trust me – I never saw anything more romantic than this in my years as a photographer.  The whole day was like something out of a fairy tale—just pure magic. They had the most intimate ceremony in the villa’s garden—the rain just stopped for a bit while many tears started falling—surrounded by lush greenery and the sounds of nature. It was so romantic and unique that I couldn’t help but get swept up in the moment.
My advice:
If you’re looking for a unique and unforgettable way to tie the knot, I highly recommend a Lake Como elopement. The beauty of the surroundings merged with the private atmosphere of the early spring is something you can’t find anywhere else. Moments like these make me fall in love with my job all over again, sometimes making me forget I’m working. And if you’d like to have me there as your Lake Como Elopement Photographer, or even for your micro wedding or intimate celebration, let’s connect!

Cheers to love and adventure!
