Simple, Elegant Lake Como Wedding Inspiration

Inspired by minimalist fashion and elements of nature, Nienke van Denderen created this amazing destination wedding inspiration shoot on the banks of Lake Como, Italy. If you are thinking of getting married abroad, or having an elopement, then I’m sure a Lake Como wedding will be one of your top choices after seeing these ideas.

For the concept, Nienke and the team wanted to keep the styling simple, showing that sometimes less is more. In this shoot it’s all about the couple’s emotions.

I love the soft colour palette used, which works so well against the backdrop of the lake and mountainside. The bouquet of small thistles and eucalyptus looks so pretty against the bride’s stunning boho style Inmaculada Garcia wedding dress. The bride and groom have a real carefree style going on, particularly the groom is his tan suede jacket.

The relaxed, simple styling is all that’s needed against the breathtaking backdrop of Lake Como.

So, as I said, if you are dreaming of a lakeside elopement or wedding in the Italian countryside, how about a Lake Como wedding? Pure romance!

Simple and Elegant Theme

“I’m in love with Italy and minimalist fashion, so I combined this with my dream of doing a wedding shoot in the mountains – a perfect wish list moment. Inspired by elements of nature we created this concept where less was more – a comfortable wedding look with a modern flare, and a simple and elegant theme that would fit perfectly with weddings.

“The combination of geometric shapes, light grey and marble for the wedding stationery is elegant, feminine and simple.”

“Lake Como was the perfect location – elegant, feminine and simple. During this shoot, in collaboration with a team of talented Dutch creatives, everything came together perfectly, and by keeping it simple, all the focus was on the lovely couple and their emotions.”
