If you have your heart set on a romantic wedding in Italy, making your choice of venues will be no small decision. Italy is home to 20 diverse and rich regions, each offering luscious local produce, spectacular scenery and incredible weather. Come with us around the country of love and explore our top locations for your Italian wedding.
Find glittering vistas on the Amalfi Coast
The Amalfi Coast is an ideal choice for a wedding of any size. You and your guests can explore the colourful fishing villages and hidden beaches, take a boat cruise along the rugged coastline and sip Prosecco at a private beach club. There’s also a variety of fresh local seafood and produce to choose from for a simple and completely delicious wedding feast. Our top Amalfi Coast locations are Positano, Capri or Ravello for an event that’s exclusive and glamorous, or Sorrento for a range of excellent venue options with sweeping water views.
Choose a Tuscan wedding for an exuberant celebration
Big and beautiful weddings in Tuscany make for an unforgettable event. Picture your ceremony in a beautiful Italian garden, your aperitif in a secret courtyard, your wedding dinner under a canopy of fairy lights, then dancing until the early hours of the morning in the Limonaia. Tuscany offers ideal hotels and venues that you can hire out privately and enjoy with your family and friends for a week-long holiday. Fresh vegetables, cheeses, wild game and steak make for delectable meals, plus of course the local unsalted bread and that famous Tuscan wine…Our top spots for weddings in Tuscany include Florence and the surrounding areas, Siena, the Chianti Region, Lucca and San Gimignano and the areas near Certaldo.
Choose an elegant Venice wedding
For the most jaw-dropping wedding photos in Italy, look to a Venice wedding. This area of Italy is steeped in history and romance with the perfect environment to say, “I do”. We can help you to plan it all, from your ceremony overlooking the Grand Canal to breathtaking wedding portraits in St Mark’s Square. The central Piazza and the picturesque St. Mark’s Basilica are common requests for a wedding ceremony with significance, or you could marry in the heart of love itself on Juliet’s Balcony, just a stone’s throw from Venice.
Indulge in romantic Rome
Rome is made for lovers with its fast paced energy and decadent venue options. You might choose the lush red interior of the Campidiglio Town Hall as your ceremony setting, or travel out of the busy streets to celebrate in a historic castle such as Castello Di Brancaccio. The city’s iconic historical landmarks and cobblestone alleys make for unexpected yet incredible wedding photo backdrops, plus you’ll be able to indulge with traditional Roman cuisine or a multitude of tasty international options at your wedding table.
Live it up at Lake Como
Lake Como is a renowned holiday destination for the rich and famous, and for good reason. Gorgeous Mediterranean weather means outside celebrations are a must, so enjoy your ceremony in front of the spectacular mountain ranges, then take your guests on a private lake cruise before beginning your reception amongst vine-covered archways. Some of our favourite areas in the Lakes region include Bellagio, Cernobbio, Vareena, and the stunning Lake Garda.
For something a little different
We are often asked to find something unique for an Italian wedding destination, and this vibrant country offers something in every corner. Our favourites include Puglia, which is where Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel famously tied the knot; Sicily, offering beautiful seaside towns and incredible food; and Umbria, offering the historic castles and villas of Tuscany for your private use with the serenity of a spot off the tourist map.
