Italy is known the world over for it’s rustic charm and romantic feel, making it one of the most popular destinations for destination weddings for couples from all over the world.
Whether it’s rugged mountains, serene alpine lakes, ancient cities or picturesque villas, Italy can offer it all. And of course it’s home to some of the most incredible foods in the world – hello pizza, pasta and gelato!
Planning a destination wedding in Italy is also much easier than many other mediterranean countries, as there is no residency requirement for civil ceremonies and even catholic ceremonies are legally binding in Italy. Civil ceremonies need to take place in a town hall approved venue, but thankfully there are so many to choose from, that you’ll find that your biggest challenge will be to decide whether you want to get married on a castle, by the ocean or in a private villa!
Whilst there are many stunning regions across Italy to get married, below are links to the most popular destination wedding regions with more detailed information on wedding venues and locations:
