Villa d'Este, overlooking Lake Como, is a famous resort and a spectacular setting for a destination wedding. Kate and Ilya are Russian but based in London and they chose to host the beginning of their wedding celebrations in Italy. Following their ceremony in a local church they took a boat back to Villa d'Este where they were greeted by their guests. Russian weddings are always fabulously entertaining with a lot of guest participation. The day after the wedding we all flew to Saratov in Russia to continue the wedding celebrations at the bride's family home.
