A wedding in Italy can be whatever you wish to make it, but one thing is for certain; it will be a unique experience. Imagine an Italian wedding ceremony in a spectacular Renaissance setting and a wedding reception in a magnificent villa or a timeless palazzo, with the most exquisite wines and sumptuous food….Italy is the perfect location for a luxurious, stylish and unique wedding.From the rolling countryside in Tuscany to the splendour of the Lakes or the dramatic cliffs of the Amalfi Coast; each region has its own distinct character and flavour, which is evoked not only in the scenery, but in the architecture, gastronomy and traditions. Wherever you choose to get married in Italy, from the beautiful Palazzo Cavalli overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice, to the majestic Castle in Malcesine on the shores of Lake Garda, you can be assured of a sophisticated event in a picturesque and romantic setting. Our experienced Italian wedding planner works with the best luxury wedding venues throughout Italy, and specialises in creating tailor-made packages covering all aspects of your wedding.Your wedding in ItalyWe work with a wide range of exclusive wedding venues across Italy, including the following locations:The Amalfi Coast (Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano and Ravello)Florence and Tuscany The Italian Lakes (Lake Garda, Lake Como and Lake Maggiore)Venice and Verona As well as these destinations, we can also arrange weddings in Rome, Milan, Turin, Bologna, Palermo and really any town or city which will conduct a civil ceremony. Please do ask us for further information if you would like to get married in another location in Italy.Civil Wedding Ceremonies in ItalyCivil Weddings in Italy can only take place in locations authorised by the local authorities and are usually in specified rooms in a Town Hall. Rather than being rather austere, functional buildings as they can be in Britain, the local town hall is often the architectural centrepiece of the town: from the dramatic Palazzo Vecchio in the centre of Florence, to the ornate ‘Sala di Dante’ in the Palazzo Communale in the heart of medieaval San Gimignano. Italian Civil Weddings are non-religious, legally binding ceremonies and are carried out in Italian, with an interpreter present. You may either choose to have the ceremony as the main wedding, with all your guests present, or as a small, intimate legal service with your two witnesses present and perhaps close family, with a further symbolic ceremony in a separate location.

Wedding Receptions in ItalyThese can be simple affairs at a local restaurant with an intimate atmosphere for your wedding party with the finest food and wine, to a more grand event in a majestic hotel or a private Palazzo, with drinks and canapés, a formal sit down meal, music and entertainment. Expressions Holidays has a wealth of experience working with luxury wedding venues and can arrange whatever you wish before, during and after your wedding day.

We use these usually as a starting point and these can be tailored to your tastes, anything is possible! You will find many of the house wines offered with menus are usually excellent; this is a real benefit of getting married close to the finest vineyards in Europe.PricesPrices will of course vary for wedding receptions, depending on what you require and how many people you invite. Prices per head may be lower if the party is larger, but there may also be supplementary charges to use certain locations or if marquees, music and special decor are required. We will normally quote for the wedding ceremony itself including translation service and documentation, a wedding coordinator in Italy, the wedding reception including catering, decoration and photographer and the different travel and accommodation requirements for you and your guests separately.HoneymoonsWhether you choose to honeymoon in Italy, or to travel further afield, we have a wide range of spectacular options, from a tailor-made itinerary in Italy to a luxury retreat in the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean or French Polynesia.
