Dolce Vita Wedding Lake Orta

A “Dolce Vita” elopement on Lake Orta

The encounter

Julie & Andrea contacted me for the first time in April 2020. They wanted to live their romantic “Dolce Vita” elopement by the most romantic lake in Italy, Lake Orta, a real crush for these lovers of Italy. Because of the pandemic as well as various family hardships, they decide to postpone their project, keeping it all the same in the back of their minds.
This is how at the beginning of 2021, our magnificent Franco-Italian couple contacted me and trusted me again to organize their romantic elopement at the start only the two of them…
Always Lake Orta, always love in the background but they decided to add their loved ones (not to mention their little dog Enzo!)… happy to live this special moment all together especially after difficult months that we all know!  

A ceremony rich in emotions

It was under a blazing sun that Julie and Andrea said “I do” civilly to the Town Hall of Orta San Giulio, a pretty town hall located directly on the shores of Lake Orta.

Andrea arrived by a vintage Vespa while Julie by boat directly from the pontoon of the “Municipio”.

Do you find civil ceremonies boring and formal?

It was without counting on the relatives of our two lovers who knew how to personalize it and give it emotion! After this anxiety period due to the pandemic, it was a real breath of fresh air! Tears of joy flowed but also lots of laughter!

After the ceremony, the couple and their guests threw balloons with their vows hanging from them.

Then they all embarked on a tour of Lake Orta on a typical “motoscafo” and toasted our newlyweds. They also did some group photos on Isola San Giulio. A beautiful memory for Julie and Andrea.

The romantic moment

After the boat tour, the guests were able to rest for a while while Julie and Andrea got on their Vespa for a “Dolce Vita” style couple shoot. An intimate moment in which our beautiful lovers were able to enjoy their new status as husband and wife.

The celebrations

At sunset, the guests were invited to an aperitif on the shores of Lake Orta where they were able to enjoy Spritz in good company. After that, they enjoyed a private terrace with a view of San Giulio Island where they tasted a gastronomic menu while enjoying the Jazzy music of our duo.
