Wedding photographer: Cadenabbia & Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, Bellagio, Lake Como, Italy: Pete & Simone

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at Lake Como in Cadenabbia & Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, Bellagio, Italy for the wedding of Pete & Simone.

OK – I’ve rummaged through our shots from Pete & Simone’s wedding and quickly selected a few that show a little of what their day entailed. I haven’t had time to work anything so they’re all pretty much as shot out of camera. The main venue for the day was the stunning, 5-star Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, Bellagio, Lake Como. Here’s a snap that I took just to show the main lounge area. My lens was no where near wide enough to show the full scale of this room – this is probably half of it at most.

So, some images from the day: firstly, as normal in pretty Italian villages, cobbles make walking in heels quite difficult. But as it’s so clean, the girls had the right idea.

Simone leaving her room – this is untouched straight from camera.

Once everyone was ready for the ceremony, it was time to jump on some private boats for the trip over to Cadenabbia where a gorgeous little church awaited. The guests & groom had the larger of the two boats and the bride followed on some 30 minutes later in something a little quicker :) Here we are now inside the church mid-ceremony.

After the service, the families & friends departed on their own boat for an hour’s tour of the lake.

Pete & Simone (along with Giselle & Matt to help) enjoyed a brief boat journey and then headed back to the Hotel for some photographs before meeting up with their family & friends again. That’s the Hotel again in the background.

I’ve fast-forwarded past the reception drinks, meal, speeches etc., to the end of the evening now! La Divina Commedia is a fabulous, quirky bar in the town which the couple hired to host their night party. I’ve quickly selected one image to give you an idea of how it’s a little differently decorated to most bars :)

We were shattered when we left at 1.30am but we had the most amazing time with an amazing group of people. Thank you all for your friendliness and hospitality. Can we do it all again? :) – Andy

  1. Pete and Simone, thanks so much for inviting us and making us feel special on your special day. We enjoyed every minute and I particularly liked the fact that once at the hotel, my glass never seemed to empty! Don Colleoni particularly enjoyed the food and, as is his custom, has been boring everyone with all the details ever since!! We hope to see you in Rome very soon, hope you had a good honeymoon – don’t forget to bring us the pics! Loads of love The Colleonis xxx
