Pack your virtual suitcases readers because today we’re jetting off to one of the most romantic places in the world, VENICE.
Somerset Maugham once wrote of Venice that the strange thing about it is, however often you return, you are as staggered by its beauty as when you saw it for the first time. It is hard to disagree. Venice has remained timeless and unique, a city without wheels, a metropolis of waterways exuding an air of nostalgia, melancholy, richness and romance.
Venice is a true delight to discover. Little arched bridges connect a multitude of tiny winding lanes which in turn lead to charming piazzas, picturesque old churches, silent palazzos and fascinating old shops.
Getting married in Venice offers you many idyllic locations like the San Marco Square and the Rialto Bridge but it also has many other hidden angles and corners to discover and use as special locations for elopement.
A Gondola ride is a must for a bride to be as well as a grand intimate dinner, and a masquerade ball with your love. This stunning city is the perfect place for a celebration and has a magnetic appeal for visitors at any time of year and surely one of the most romantic places to plan a wedding. There is just something magical about it, the food , the culture, the atmosphere.
Is there a better place to exchange vows with your sweetheart ?
So then, come to the city of Casanova and have a Carnival-Inspired wedding following Venetian traditions, with footmen in crimson silk and a traditionally-outfitted doge welcoming guests.
Masquerade weddings in Venice are getting more and more popular. For more intimacy, you can also choose to have your ceremony on one of the small islands which nestle all around Venice . Hold your glamorous ceremony in the gardens where Casanova used to hold court, on the Giudecca Island, a 5-minute boat ride from St. Mark’s Square. It is also possible to have banquets with Michelin-starred gastronomy while your guests enjoy stunning views of Venice.
Wedding venues in Venice feature interiors decorated with original marble features, mosaics, Venetians style furnishings, precious Murano chandeliers and terraces with amazing view as a perfect setting for a welcome reception for your guests. Have a fabulous wedding dinner with a fairytale ambiance around you.
It is possible to observe all kinds of wedding celebrations in Venice: Catholic, Jewish, Protestant or symbolic rites. You can customize symbolic ceremonies in detail, like the length, the celebrant, the music and, finally, the setting and location.
Friends and families can actively be part of the rite, reading letters, poems or personal dedications to the newlyweds. Your celebrant might recommend to you the ritual of the sand, as well as the sealing of a box containing a bottle of wine with promises of opening it ten years later.

Options will be customised by her and her team to suit all the requirements and budget of the couple. Contact Stefania to discuss the options available to make your Wedding Day the most memorable time.
