Amy was the wedding photographer at Villa Balbianello & Lido di Lenno, Lake Como, Italy for Toni & Justine’s wedding.
Lucky old me – back to Lake Como again just a week after the wedding of Dick & Shia. This time it was for the beautiful wedding of Toni & Justine and was at two of my all-time favourite venues – Villa Balbianello and Lido di Lenno. Told you I was lucky!
Both Toni & Justine got ready at Albergo Lenno, just across the bay from the Lido di Lenno. Lenno’s a great little town as it allows you to get onto the Lake front and away from the main road. Villa Balbianello is only accessible by boat and so whilst Toni and the guests enjoyed their boat-ride, half an hour later, Justine, her Mum and I enjoyed our trip on a lovely speed boat. The climb to the Loggia at Villa Balbianello is quite steep but so worth it. This is one of the most spectacular spots to get married in the world – it must be! The immaculate surroundings of the Villa and the incredible blossoming flowers add to the 360 degree views over Lake Como. Stunning.
Boats took us back around the bay to the Lido di Lenno. A funky little place with a really chilled-out atmosphere. Confetti and aperitivi were enjoyed by all but unfortunately, Justine’s Nan wasn’t too well during the meal and had to take a trip to hospital. A worry for all involved but just a few hours later Nan came back with a big smile on her face and the evening could continue with vigour.

Love this one of Toni with his Mum & Dad.
Really love this one.
Justine and her Mum wandered along the Lake front to meet the speed boat.

Villa Balbianello – breathtaking.
An emotional ceremony.
What a place to say ‘I do!’
The guests went for a tour of the Lake whilst we stayed at Villa Balbianello for photographs.
Not set-up – promise! Too cool.
Confetti was launched as Toni & Justine got off the boat.
Such a laugh!
Fair to say the Italians know how to make things look pretty!
Stunning setting at the Lido di Lenno.
Eventful and stunning all rolled into one. Thank you for being fabulous and for looking after me so attentively. I’ll be in touch VERY soon!! – Amyx
