The elegant rooms, the stuccos and the large windows make Villa Heleneum the ideal venue for your wedding banquet. The terrace facing the lake and the rooms on three floors are suitable for the reception and the dinner.

An amazing planner, so important
This was the first time we worked with the amazing planner team of Eventoile. Eventoile Wedding Design is a luxury wedding planner atelier that has built a global reputation for its sophisticated style and outstanding world-class tailored weddings. From small intimate gatherings to large and lavish affairs, they offer exclusive services and strive to ensure all the client celebrations are exceptional. As a photography team, we see a lot of different wedding planners. The team of Eventoile did an incredible job during this weekend. When the guests were coming by boat to the venue, it started to rain. But the team of Eventoile managed to made everything set up in a beautiful way, inside of the villa. The couple did not even noticed.
The wedding day
The first part of the day was celebrated at Chiesa Santa Maria del Sasso. This stunning church is on top of a hill nearby Lugano. Although this church probably dates back to the 13th century, it was rebuilt in 1462, and its orientation was also later changed in 1758. The church is beautiful from the in and outside.
After the church, the guests were picked up and brought to the harbour. One of the advantages of Villa Heleneum is that you can arrive by boat.
The weather started to change while the guests were on the boat. In the meantime the team of Eventoile moved everything which they build up outside, to the inside. Before the couple and their guests arrived, it was all set up perfectly.
The rest of the evening was celebrated inside, with some intimate speeches and a great dinner. All of this was followed by a great party! Everyone was dancing and enjoying. Of course the band by Blunotte Events, made a great difference. Live music, we love it!
