There’s Fairytale Wedding & then there’s Italian Wedding
A Wedding in Italy often mean a choice between a Catholic church wedding and a civil service in a town hall. A few cities also have Protestant churches. In Italy, marriages are also often held in a private location, such as a villa or palazzo. A dedicated wedding planner will take the strain of coordinating the ceremony, reception, flowers, music, make-up artist, hairdressing, photography and even the love nest.
They will help you create your vision and allow you to follow your heart. If that means getting married in a Sicilian castle or celebrating in a conical trullo in Puglia, so be it. The trend for quirky locations is in your favour. A classical Venetian wedding followed by traditional Dolomiti ski break for a honeymoon is a case in point.
A wedding in Italy conjures up romance and passion and captures the imagination of many. Remember Tom Cruise’s last wedding? If you want to follow in such famous footsteps, you could opt for a wedding in a floodlit medieval castle overlooking Lake Bracciano, outside Rome. It was here, showbiz stars, including Jennifer Lopez and John Travolta, watched Katie Holmes become a fairytale princess. Owned since the 15th century by the Odescalchi family, the castle can cater for 1,400 of your closest friends. We said Italian weddings are a big deal!
A wedding in Rome is a magical event. The Eternal City boasts not just three town halls but also the right to stage civil ceremonies in the ancient Caracalla Baths or at the Campidoglio, overlooking the Roman Forum. Tying the knot in the city’s lovely Villa Borghese Gardens is also an option.
For loves of sun and sea the chic island of Capri makes a great choice. Civil ceremonies take place overlooking the picturesque Piazzetta, or even under the shimmering emerald light of the Blue Grotto, reached only by boat.
Sardinia also has charming location, as well as incredible food and wine for your guests. Weddings can be held in the quaint walled city of Alghero. Naturally, all your wedding arrangements can be dealt with by a wedding planner, who will help with everything from the ceremony and legal side to the reception, flowers, photographer, and even the cake.

If you decide on a bespoke honeymoo, the locations can be as wild as your wildest dreams. Start off in a Gothic palazzo in Venice then move to a Renaissance villa a stone’s throw from Florence, finishing off in a Mediterranean-style villa on the Amalfi coast, overlooking the island of Capri.
