Panoramic Lakeside Destination Wedding in Italy by Duepunti Photography
When you think of a wedding in Italy, the usual suspects come to mind . . . . Tuscany, Lake Como, Venice, Verona, Ravello, Rome . . . I could go on and on. And while they are jaw droppingly (yes, I made up that word . . .) spectacular locations, sometimes it pays to head slightly off the beaten path in order to find something just as breathtaking, yet blissfully undiscovered by most. One of my favourite parts of editing this blog is that, every so often, a tiny hidden gem of a destination appears, just like the location for today’s stunning lakeside Italian wedding.
Located just a kilometre from the renowned Lake Maggiore, Lake Mergozzo (or, Lago di Mergozzo as the locals know it) is one of the smaller alpine lakes in Northern Italy, but undeniably one of the most scenic. As luck would have it, Lake Mergozzo is also home to one of the finest restaurants in the Piedmont region, Piccolo Lago, set on the shore of the lake. This panoramic restaurant, with not one but two Michelin starts, recently played host to Valerio and Vanusa’s very elegant wedding day, complete with guests from as far away as the United States and Brazil.
A beautiful country, a breathtaking setting, amazing local food and wine, and the company of close family and great friends . . . isn’t that what destination weddings are all about??!
