The natural beauty and stunning architecture of Lake Como were the backdrop for this intimate wedding desi


When they met in Mumbai through mutual friends in early 2020, businessman Aniket Shroff was based in the US and jeweler Mauni Shah was living in Belgium. But they knew this relationship was forever. They also knew they wanted to get married surrounded by natural beauty. “We are great nature lovers, and this was the starting point for the search for our dream destination,” reveals the bride. Taking inspiration from Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, they settled on Lake Como in Italy for their November 2021 nuptials.

“Pulling this off in a location that has limited experience with Indian weddings was a challenge, but we were determined to give our guests a memorable taste of Lake Como,” says the bride. The place was an integral part of this vision. When the couple saw Villa Balbiano, which dates back to the 16th century and even features in the movie House of Gucci, it was love at first sight. “Its history, antique furnishings and tasteful interiors lent themselves beautifully to the elegant and grand aesthetic we were looking for. The picturesque lake view was the icing on the cake,” the groom explains. 150 guests all stayed at the lake-facing Hotel Villa Flori.Making full advantage of the panoramic views was central to the planning, which is why the three-day celebrations were held entirely outdoors. Flamboyant personality, Shroff entered the wedding event in a helicopter.The varmala exchange was on a boat in the lake.
