Lake Como Engagement Boat Ride from Tremezzo to Bellagio
Lake Como is one the most romantic destinations for an engagement photoshoot in Italy. While Venice is of course, where my heart and my home is, Lake Como offers the kind of privacy, luxury and natural landscape you really want when you are planning a marriage proposal and you want to truly amaze your partner.
Lake Como is a sought after destination for all kind of events, vacations, honeymoons and weddings as well. This magnificent lake embraced by towering awe-inspiring mountains, offers the best variety of luxury hotels, history, sporting activities and exquisite cuisine you can find in Italy.
Some of the best locations for a marriage proposal in Lake Como
When planning a marriage proposal in Lake Como there are a few things to consider, and one is certainly the location: where to propose?
Most villas offer the option to rent after opening hours. Or they allow you to have a photoshoot during opening times, at a price. Contact me to learn more about this process and the pricing. This doesn’t work for last minute photoshoots, because the waitlist can be extremely long.
Another great idea is a private boat ride along the lake. This give you the opportunity to see more of the area, and use these stunning villas as a background for your images. This is what Daniel decided to do, and it was a lot of fun.
A boat ride from Tremezzo to Bellagio and an intimate proposal
Daniel and Paulina live in London. They had been dating for a while, when they planned a summer trip to Italy, on the occasion of a friend’s wedding. Daniel thought it was his chance for a romantic Italian proposal. He booked a morning boat ride from Tremezzo to Bellagio, with a stop at the iconic Villa del Balbianello.
Tremezzina is located on the western banks of Lake Como, just opposite Bellagio, and is the result of a recent merger of the municipalities of Lenno, Mezzegra, Ossuccio and Tremezzo. Among the main must-sees, in fact, Tremezzina is home to two of the most beautiful villas on Lake Como: Villa Balbianello and Villa Carlotta, a museum and botanical garden. Villa Balbianello will probably look familiar because some scenes from Star Wars were filmed there, but also 007 Casino Royale.
Our boat tour was the place where Daniel asked Paulina to marry him, and it was the most magical and intimate moment. We headed to the small town of Bellagio afterwards, to take a walk and eat a gelato.
