Villa Balbiano in Lake Como

If you’re looking for the most exclusive venues for your luxury wedding, glamorous event or romantic engagement photoshoot, look no further.

The Heritage Collection has restored the most exceptional historical properties in Europe and I’m so proud to be one of their recommended wedding photographers.

Take a look at their stunning venues below:

Villa Balbiano in Lake Como

Villa Balbiano in Lake Como

Situated on the western shore of Lake Como, Villa Balbiano is an awe-inspiring Italian jewel, listed among the most prestigious venues on Lake Como by Harpers Bazaar and Vogue US. Villa Balbiano is a perfect choice for any event: from a destination wedding to a glamorous party, from a private photo session to an intimate elopement. With its charming views across Lake Como to the distant mountains, its immense Italian garden and a private pier, the Villa is a perfect backdrop for a fairytale wedding or celebration.

Villa Clara in Rome

A hidden jewel, located in the heart of Rome near Villa Borghese, Villa Clara is a sumptuous historic estate that sets a new standard for luxury accommodation in the city. Villa Clara is an ideal venue for small scale events, intimate weddings, engagement parties and elopements. The exquisite roof terrace with 360-degree panoramic views of Rome may also be used for dining under stars or a fancy cocktail after-party.

Villa Astor on the Amalfi Coast

Overlooking the Bay of Naples, this majestic property rises sheer above the sea on a cliff. With arguably one of the greatest views in the world, Villa Astor has quite rightfully been labelled “Paradise”. Named one of the trendiest Italian wedding venues by Brides Magazine, Villa Astor is a dream wedding venue. A unique and romantic spot perfect for elopements, wedding ceremonies and receptions. The stunning lush garden with panoramic views of the sea and Mount Vesuvius is a heavenly setting for romance and celebration. Dining can be enjoyed al fresco under the stars or inside one of the many salons.

Château de Villette near Paris

Located 40 minutes away from the centre of Paris, Château de Villette is one of the most remarkable châteaux in France, classified as a historical landmark since 1942 by the French government. Set in a 75ha woodland park, with two lakes, a magnificent cascade fountain, a glasshouse and orangery and lavish interiors, Chateau de Villette epitomizes elegance, luxury and the famous French expression “art de vivre”. It has earned the name Le Petit Versailles (the Little Versailles). Dreamy and refined, Château de Villette is a perfect choice for any event: from a destination wedding to a glamorous party, from a private photo session to an intimate elopement.

If you’re recently engaged and getting married in Italy or France at one of The Heritage Collection venues, do get in touch. I would absolutely love to chat with you and discuss your wedding photography requirements.
