Natasha & Roustam
Wedding photographer in Como Lake.
Natasha & Roustam are a gourgeus Australian couple, who have decided to crown their italian dream, in the splendid setting of Lake Como, in a lovely villa in Viggiù, Villa Alceo.
Federica and I were with them the day before to photograph their engagement.
We spent a few hours together in Cernobbio on the shores of the lake. Engagement is always the right opportunity to make confident with them and get synergy so on the wedding day they do not perceive our presence, considering us part of the wedding.
Cernobbio was an amazing location. The day was perfect, sun and clouds, which allowed us to better tell a moment of intimacy, and the joy of waiting.
The following day, we reached them at Villa Alceo, a wonderful Villa from 1870, surrounded by nature, an oasis of peace.
We immediately started by telling their getting ready inside the Villa. Scenographic halls with Belle Epoque and Liberty ceilings, crystal chandeliers, parquet floors with marble details and a collection of 75 Russian paintings from the post-modernist era that can be found in the rooms or in the lounges.
The ceremony was celebrated in the park of the Villa. A park of about 11000mq adorned with statues and avenues in porphyry.
Following the reception on the terrace overlooking Viggiù. An imperial table hosted the intimate dinner with friends and relatives, to the sound of toasts and wild dancing. Emotions and fun is what came out of it and now we want to show you a small selection of their wedding.
