Dinner on Lake Como at Villa Regina Teodolinda wedding

Villa Regina Teodolinda wedding lake Como

This is a lovely Villa Regina Teodolinda wedding on the shores of Lake Como. Lake Como has a unique feel and charm and it is easy to see why the area is always a popular wedding destination.

Villa Regina Teodolinda wedding – The Location

The villa lies on the shores of Lake Como in Laglio. The quiet road outside gives away little idea of the beautiful location. Through the gates, you enter into the private car park and then walk a few seconds to the villa. The first thing you notice is the lovely terraces and levels of gardens that connect the vila to the lake. The boat dock is impressive with its stairs and stone walls that lead the eye towards the main villa that lies in the background.

Vila Regina Teodolinda is an elegant villa with simple but tasteful furnishings. The bride and groom prepare separately but are both at the villa. The groom gets ready alone and will be leaving in advance as he is driving a classic Mercedes to the church. The bride gets ready with some help from her mother, Once ready, she meets her father and her parents accompany her to the church.

The Anglican Church of the Ascension, Cadenabbia

The wedding ceremony itself takes place at the Anglican Church of the Ascension in Cadenabbia. The small town of Cadennabia is about 30 minutes further north of Laglio. The ceremony is an incredibly emotional experience for all present. The Anglican Church of Ascension in Cadennabbia is a simple but beautiful church, the gold mosaic tiles at the altar create a lovely warm backdrop to the couple.

After the tears of joy and excitement at the start of the ceremony, there are tender vows. Once the ceremony concludes they newlyweds exit to romantic soap bubbles and cheers. Whilst we return to the villa we stop briefly to take a few photos but soon we are back at Villa Regina Teodolinda. There are cocktails and nibbles and everyone enjoys lovely views and atmosphere as they celebrate.

Villa Regina Teodolinda wedding reception

During the cocktails, there is time for some family photos and for another short photo session with the couple in the grounds of the villa. The dinner reception is on the gravel area in front of the villa. The views are perfect and the fairy lights in the trees and candles create a magical atmosphere. There are some funny speeches and everyone enjoys delicious food and wine. This Villa Regina Teodolinda wedding concludes with a traditional cake cutting accompanied by sparklers and then a lot of dancing! I like this villa a lot for smaller weddings and if you are a small group you may also want to consider this famous Lake Como wedding venue.
