Lake Maggiore, with its Borromean islands, its beautiful period villas or castles and its luxuriant vegetation is undoubtedly a romantic location that offers breathtaking landscapes for the newlyweds. For centuries it has been appreciated and endorsed by tourists from all over the world and it is also easy to reach for those who want to organize a “destination wedding”.
Some types of locations stand out, the beautiful “belle époque” style hotels and of course the beautiful Liberty style villas that are the symbol of our lakes. The difference is simple, those who get married in a private villa choose the luxury of having a privatized and exclusive wedding venue for their guests. Instead, those who prefer the hotel choose the convenience of having accommodation on site and can carry out all the moments of the wedding almost without moving and without having to think about any transport. They are two different and personal choices.
Getting married on Lake Maggiore offers many possibilities: I can organize your civil, symbolic or religious ceremony.
After the ceremony, reach one of the wedding venues that offers a unique setting for your guests who will be dazzled by the singular beauty.
All the wedding venues I offer have a view of the lake, beautiful outdoor spaces and are completely privatized for you: so are you and your family, the only owners of the place, in complete privacy. And why not fully enjoy the view by taking a tour of the lake with a welcome drink at sunset or a party boat?
For your wedding in the lakes area, I propose you all the most beautiful wedding venues on Lake Maggiore, Lake Como or Lake Orta.
