Luisa Lepore, 30, married Geraint Christiaan Steyn, 27, on 14 July 2014. She says:

"Since I was a little girl, it's been my dream to get married in Italy. My father's family are Italian, so it felt like a natural choice. Venue-hunting in Lake Como was incredible, and we saw six venues in total, but the minute we arrived here, we knew it was the one.

THE BEST VILLAS AND CHATEAUS TO WED IN

"Villa del Balbianello is on a peninsula and reachable only by boat, so it's a secluded paradise. We fell in love with the spectacular views of the lake and landscaped gardens. It has the perfect mix of romance, history and glamour - Casino Royale and Star Wars are among a number of films that have been shot here!"
