Cristiano ostinelli - villa-balbiano-wedding-photo-shoot

Like a dream: a wedding at Villa Balbiano is an amazing event and this historical palazzo situated in the small town of Ossuccio on the western part of Lake Como is the perfect stage of a perfect day to remember.

Villa Balbiano is one of the best venue for breathtaking weddings on Lake Como, and it was built by Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio at the end of the 16th century, and was enlarged and embellished by Cardinal Durini in the 18th century.

Villa Balbiano is a combination of extreme comfort and luxury and offers indoor endless swimming pool and an outdoor swimming pool facing the lake.

This luxury wedding venue on Lake Como was the perfect choice for a beautiful couple from Hong Kong, China: an amazing wedding after a typical “Italian style” pre-wedding in Milan on the day before.
