Get married in Venice, the capital of romance and beauty! Venice is referred to as La Serenissima (the Most Serene One) and no city in the world can match its beauty and uniqueness; built entirely on water. Venice is the city of gondolas, the Grand Canal, Vivaldi’s music and elegant palaces. It is a place to discover on foot, getting lost in the many “calle” or narrow lanes and streets that make Venice so distinctive. The magnificent Piazza San Marco with its Byzantine cathedral and covered archways may well be Italy’s most famous and most photographed square. In summertime, the orchestras of Caffe’ Quadri and Caffe’ Florian play beautiful music while you sip a glass of champagne watching the world go by.

During Carnival, in February, Venice is transformed into an amazing spectacle of costumes, music and celebrations. It is something to see at least once in your life. 

A Venice symbolic wedding offers options that are not available elsewhere. One of our favorite is the hidden garden of a private palace belonging to a countess.  Its sumptuous interiors are available for a formal Venice wedding reception. Several of the city’s finest luxury palace hotels offer amazing symbolic ceremony options. One of the 5 star hotels has its own enclosed garden while others offer huge terraces overlooking the Grand Canal. A romantic gondola symbolic ceremony at sunset floating down the Gran Canal would be an unforgettable memory. Exclusive venues on the nearby islands include gardens with views of the lagoon or the magical cloisters of a former convent. Imagine hosting your symbolic Venice ceremony and reception on a luxuriously furnished galleon, while sailing on your own private cruise along the lagoon. The views will amaze your guests! Our staff will present you with the perfect location and setting to match your wedding dreams.

About Symbolic Ceremonies in Venice
Symbolic weddings are not legally binding, have no restrictions and paperwork is not required. Your wedding designer can provide you with ideas, locations and personal vows or you can write your own. We will create a beautiful parchment wedding certificate written in calligraphy to bring home and frame.
