Weddings in Italy

Weddings in Italy, the Land of love, are popular for very good reason. Italy is famous for romance, just think, you could get married in elegant Rome with its wide boulevards, ancient buildings and stylish atmosphere. There are plenty of incredible wedding destinations here – from classy hotels to rustic villas overlooking the hills outside the city, and everything in between. read more

Or maybe you'd prefer to get married in the countryside around Florence? The city itself is incredible and remains a centre of art, as it has been since the time of Leonardo da Vinci and Michaelangelo – perfect if you'd like an Italy wedding with artistic flair!

However, the Tuscan countryside around Florence is equally amazing, with many picturesque towns set amongst rolling hills, which make ideal wedding locations. How about hiring a villa here to get married and then celebrate with your family and friends? It'd definitely be private and unique to you!

Further north, is unique and stunning Venice, with its hidden streets, intricate buildings lining the canal banks as gondolas glide by, and many secret venues for a magical wedding in Italy. From palaces to gardens, Venice really does live up to its romantic reputation and is ideal for a wedding.

Another popular Italy wedding choice is the Italian Lakes to the north of the country. Lakes Garda, Como and Maggiore are world-famous for their beauty and many couples, and indeed celebrities, have chosen to marry there. Lake Garda is the most popular and has plenty of wedding planners and venues around the lake which can help you decide where on the shores you'd like to exchange vows. Lake Como is quieter but equally pretty with villas peaking out of the hills around the lake, some of which can be hired out for weddings. Lake Maggiore actually goes over the border into Switzerland and is less well known by non Italians, but there are still many gorgeous wedding locations and venues here. Maggiore and its smaller neighbour Lake Orta are both perfect wedding locations for couples looking for the romance of the lakes but with more seclusion.

In southern Italy there is also a fabulously wide choice of wedding locations – how about the chic island of Capri off the world-renowned Amalfi coast? Popular with movie stars in the 1960s, Capri is stunningly pretty, just like the Amalfi coast itself, with its small roads winding through little fishing villages where boats bob about on turquoise blue seas and glamorous hotels overlook the sea – a great backdrop to your wedding in Italy, no?

Alternatively, try the southern beauty of Campania with its lemon and orange groves, or how about getting married in Sicily, an island of charming bays, ancient ruins, national parks and a mix of cultures, from Arabic to Greek to Norman.

Wherever you choose, getting married in Italy is an excellent choice, just ask our wedding providers below!
