I was extremely honored to be flown to Lake Como, Italy for my first ever destination wedding.

I flew out the day before the wedding from Manchester… after a much needed full english and of course a breakfast mimosa at the airport.

I was greeted by a private transfer and escorted to Il Grifo in Lenno where I was staying.

Once I was unpacked I went for a short walk around the Lake and out for dinner… and obviously had to sample a couple of cocktails!

Prior to my trip everyone I spoke to said how lovely it was and I thought, aren’t most sunny countries lovely?… but all i can say is WOW, Lake Como is absolutely breath taking, the views are just incredible it truly is a beautiful place.

On the morning of the wedding I was taken to the villa where the bridal party were getting ready, I think its safe to say the view from my window at work had never looked so good, I had to pinch myself.

After the bridal prep I decided to catch the ferry over to Bellagio and take in the sights along the way.

Once in Bellagio it was tapas and cocktail time, I was served a platter of delicious meats, melon, bruscetta and freshly made bread with oils and balsamic, all washed down with a very delicious (and very strong) strawberry daquiri.


Back to the accommodation to pack my case and get an early night for the flight home, bye Como hope to visit again soon.
