Civil Weddings in Portofino
Pristine views, pastel colored houses, wonderful waterfront restaurants and luxury hotels. These are just some of the highlights for couples celebrating a wedding in Portofino.
Your Portofino civil wedding ceremony will be performed at the magnificent Castello Brown, perched high above the village enjoying spectacular views of the sea and Portofino.
The medieval castle is named after the English Consul, Montague Yeats Brown, who owned the structure from 1867 to 1949. Of particular note to couples is the romantic story of how the Consul planted two pine trees on the grounds to commemorate his wedding day. The interiors are filled with original furnishings and photos. The castle is noted for its astonishing terraced gardens which are ideal for an outside wedding reception and make an idyllic background for your wedding photos. The views are simply indescribable.
The castle is available for outdoor receptions and would be an unforgettable setting for your wedding banquet following the civil ceremony allowing you and your guests to fully appreciate the gardens and amazing views.
