After we got all the photo and video shots of the Villa Giuseppina, the wedding props and the bride and groom, it was time for us to head over for the ceremony at the Villa Balbianello. The Villa del Balbianello is a villa in the comune of Lenno (province of Como), Italy, overlooking Lake Como dating from the second part of 18th century. It is located on the tip of the small wooded peninsula of Dosso d’Avedo on the western shore of the south-west branch of Lake Como, not far from the Isola Comacina and is famous for its elaborate terraced gardens.
We scouted the location day before the wedding and we knew if it’s going to be sunny sky the light was going to be amazing. And amazing it was!
We took a boat ride along with other guests to the Villa Balbianello and the welcome drink in the shades of beautiful arboretum of this peninsula was waiting for us. After all the guests gathered, Mostafa arrived with his best man and brother in a speed boat. But only when all the guest and Mostafa took their place Anastasia arrived with her girls, coordinator from Forever Amore Wedding agency and MUA artist Fabio Lo Coco to make sure all the details were perfect. Everything was ready for the WOW moment when Mostafa will see Anastasia’s in a wedding dress for the first time.
