Celebrate your wedding in Venice!

A wedding in Venice is possibly the most exclusive and spectacular option for those who desire to marry in Italy. Every couple dreams of being able to enjoy a gondola ride along the Grand Canal, taking in the magnificent Rialto Bridge and the palazzi and bridges that line Venice’s main thoroughfare.

 The Piazza San Marco and its Basilica with its Byzantine architecture provide the perfect setting for your wedding photos. The incomparable views of the bay and the Isle of San Giorgio will remain etched in your memory forever. Civil wedding ceremonies are celebrated in the superb Palazzo Cavalli which overlooks the Grand Canal, as well as several other superb Palace locations: a Ca’ Farsetti and Palazzo Vendramin Calergi.

The bride can arrive in a gondola! The most popular location is the Palazzo Cavalli with its formal and imposing grand staircase. A civil marriage in the elegant palace of the Island of Murano is another wonderful option. Murano is the enchanting island where the glass blowers create the famous exquisite Venetian glass. The wedding palazzo would be an memorable setting with its formal hall overlooking the waters; the interiors are furnished with original antiques. 

 Italy is a beautiful place to get married being the romantic capital of Europe, bringing plenty of sunshine and great value for money when compared with venues in the UK.

Celebrate your wedding in Verona!

Verona is among the most enchanting and picturesque cities in the North of Italy. It enjoys an ideal geographic position that makes it easy to explore the nearby Valpolicella vineyards and villages as well as the splendours of Venice.

Rome aside, it is the city that boasts the largest number of Roman ruins and antiquities.
