Lake Orta is, without a doubt, one of the most romantic lakes in Italy. This is why it is highly coveted by the newlyweds from all over the world. Its characteristic narrow streets, the historic charm of an antiquity still intact, the beauty of its frescoes combined with the natural spectacle that the lake and the island of San Giulio give us, make it the ideal place for elegant and refined weddings.

The picturesque village of Orta San Giulio, known as “one of the most beautiful villages in Italy”, has kept intact the architectural and natural beauty of its past wrapped in an aura of mystery which, merging with the spirituality of its “soul”, gives a so singular and irresistibly poetic atmosphere, difficult to describe with only words.

The ceremony

Getting married on Lake Orta offers many possibilities: civil marriage in the Town Hall, religious in one of the magnificent churches of the town or symbolic. The advantage of Orta San Giulio is that everything is within walking distance, which facilitates the organization of the day for the guests and the newlyweds themselves.

The celebrations

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 lakebeautiful 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.

The wedding venues

Among my proposals you will find some of the venues with which I collaborate.

Of course, the list is not exhaustive, the regions of Piedmont and Lombardy have thousands of villas or wedding venues.

I am willing to work anywhere (in northern Italy) as long as it is in your place of the heart.

Villa Bonola

«A classy location perfect for intimate weddings»

Villa Bonola is located on Lake Orta, in the village of Corconio, just before Orta San Giulio.

It is a beautiful period villa (from the late 1700s) that enjoys beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces overlooking the lake.

The owner has recently renovated the whole villa in its smallest details to give it back all the beauty of the past years and make it a classy location.

Villa Bonola is perfect for intimate, exclusive weddings and certainly for “destination weddings” as it is rented only per week with accommodation possible for up to 14 people.


Luci sul lago

«How to feel at home surrounded by the lake»

If you want to find an intimate, romantic location, surrounded by the lake, Luci sul lago is the ideal place.

You will feel in harmony with nature, for any type of event. With a romantic view of the lake, Luci sul lago is the ideal location for your dream wedding on Lake Orta. The private beach allows a beautiful symbolic ceremony “les pieds dans l’eau”. You can also arrive with your guests by the lake, to surprise them

Palazzo Penotti-Ubertini

“A century palace just few steps from Lake Orta”

The Penotti Ubertini is located in the center of the village of Orta San Giulio.

It has a large door through which could pass horses. The construction of the palace, built by Paolo Gemelli, began in the early eighteenth century and was completed in 1747.

Its garden overlooking the lake and the typical roofs of stone houses and its pretty old rooms make this a unique place for a wedding, just a few walk from the lake and the amazing yellow Church of “Santa Maria Assunta”.

Villa Crespi

“Become the Prince and Princess of this fabulous palace outside the world”

Great industrialist in the textile sector, Cristoforo Benigno Crespi realized his dream when he built in 1879, this villa in Moorish style, by love for his wife Pia.

The Crespi family was the owners until 1929. After that date, many poets, industrialists and aristocrats succeeded each other until King Umberto I of Savoy.

Today, Villa Crespi is a luxury hotel with a prestigious starred restaurant. The noble materials such as the typical stucco of Islamic Art, the many columns built of precious marble… make this an Eastern paradise, with wonderful views of Lake Orta.

Palazzo Gemelli

“Palazzo Gemelli, a historic jewel in the center of Orta San Giulio”

Located to the left of the Parish Church of Santa Maria Assunta, along the slope of the Motta, the Palazzo Gemelli is a late Renaissance building which preserves, on the cornice of the facade, fresco decorations (probably by the Flemings) inspired by mythology.

The building has a splendid example of an Italian garden where it will be possible to have an aperitif with a view of the island of San Giulio.
