Weddings in Italy
An Italian wedding is a thing of beauty. Italy is one of the most romantic countries in the world—and throughout the whole country, you will find places where there’s a mixture of old-world charm and modern sophistication. These venues are both rustic and forward-thinking, fashionable yet cozy, elegant and joy-filled at the same.
Italy has all the wonders of nature to ensure your wedding’s setting will be gorgeous indeed. Whether you love bodies of water or towering peaks, Italy has splendid lakes and majestic mountains for you. Not to mention villas, castles, churches and other amazing architectural wonders that will take your breath away.
The weather in Italy is also spectacular for weddings, being sunny in many places for months on end, or even all year round. You are sure to get lovely photographs of your special day. And we haven’t even begun to mention the cuisine. Italian food is famous all over the world, with culinary delights that will satisfy everyone.
And finally, there are the people. Italians are among the warmest, friendliest people you’ll ever meet. They’ll welcome you into their hearts, and help you have a wedding experience you’ll never forget.
A wedding in Rome guarantees a romantic and picturesque experience in the Eternal City. The wonderful thing about it is that you can have any sort of wedding that you wish for—church weddings, weddings in castles, rooftop weddings, and so on. For the faithful, there are so many beautiful churches to choose from, such as the Chiesa di Santa Caterina Martire, or the church of Santa Caterina the Martyr.
A beautiful Orthodox Church in Rome, the Chiesa di Santa Caterina Martire is just a stone’s throw away from one of the most important Roman landmarks, St. Peter’s Basilica. The Church Santa Caterina Martire can be found at Via del Lago Terrione, inside the park of Villa Abamelek, where the embassy of Russia is located. It is a fairly new church since construction finished only in 2009 and a beautiful and majestic structure that reaches almost 30 meters to the sky.
As a marvelous place for photographing the bride and groom, we’d like to suggest Civitavecchia, a seaport town on the Tyrrhenian Sea. The Comune di Civitavecchia is a historical city dating from Etruscan times. Visitors to the city will surely be impressed with the Forte Michelangelo, whose tower was designed by the master himself.
And for the wedding reception, look no further than Residenza Castelverde or Borgo di Tragliata. At Residenza Castelverde, the menu for the wedding feast can be prepared to the couples’ hearts’ delight. The venue comes with an open bar, and reception ceremonies such as cake-cutting or bouquet-throwing can be done besides one of the two pools.
On the other hand, the Borgo de Tragliata is found in Rome’s countryside, less than 30 kilometers from the city. It is a beautiful location for a rustic, yet sophisticated wedding reception and the sun-drenched countryside is particularly ideal for a summer wedding.

If you are looking for an Orthodox church at Lake Como, you’ll be glad to find the Chiesa Ortodossa Santi Apostoli Pietro e Paolo, the Orthodox Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul. The parish and community are warm, welcoming and friendly towards every visitor.
And for your reception, we highly recommend the very charming La Rizulin. Designed along the curved lines of a spiral, La Rizulin is an elegant and modern restaurant set in the heart of Brianza, Como.
