ELegant locations for a lake garda wedding

The western side of the lake is so aristocratic and refined, with its Art Nouveau villas, lush lakefront gardens and a luxurious and worldly lifestyle, making it a brilliant location for a wedding, with a refined and sophisticated style. 

The ceremony can take place in an elegant garden with a view of the lake, or in one of the historic palazzi of Salò or Gardone Riviera; whose interior rooms are precious places, thanks to their pictorial decorations and spectacular coffered wooden ceilings. 

Isola del Garda really is such a rare place and one of the most extraordinary in Italy. It is a private island on which you will find neo-Gothic Venetian-style villa, the centuries-old gardens, and the ancient greenhouse, with its plants and aromatic essences. Imagine exchanging vows on the loggia of the ancient villa, surrounded by majestic architecture and nature, full of creative vitality… all this is a fairy tale that can come true.

castles and medioeval villages for a lake garda wedding

The eastern side of Lake Garda expresses a rather rustic and traditional mountainous landscape, with ancient villages and medieval castles. A landscape within which your wedding takes on an unmistakable traditional touch. It is worth treating your guests to an experience in an iconic place, whose image is unlikely to fade over time. 

Located in the heart of the village, Malcesine Castle is the most famous. The wedding ceremony can take place on the terrace, known as the ‘Rivellino’, where the breathtaking view of the lake makes your most important moment truly memorable. 

The ancient lemon house of the Castle of Torri del Benaco is an extraordinary, historical place to exchange vows, amidst the centuries-old lemon trees and ancient stone walls. The castle, of Roman origin, has an impressive tower from which you can admire the beauty of the lake, making it a unique setting for your wedding. 

There is also the ancient Lonato Castle, which is located south of Lake Garda and is enclosed by ancient walls with Guelph-style battlements; which allow a glimpse of the lake. Inside, a marvellous garden, laid out on two levels, can host the ceremony and wedding reception. Can you imagine the majestic impact Lake Garda could have on your wedding?

Situated south of the lake, the village of Sirmione hosts two ancient churches set in a historical context of great value. Here it is possible to celebrate a Catholic religious ceremony in very emotionally impactful setting. 

Santa Maria della Neve is Sirmione’s main church. Its gabled façade, portico with round arches and interior decorated with frescoes give the ceremony a solemn and majestic touch. After the ceremony, at the back of the church the secret garden awaits you. What better place to capture the images of your big day together with your guests, than with a dynamic experience in the heart of the lively village of Sirmione? 

San Pietro in Mavino is the oldest church in Sirmione, a jewel surrounded by gardens and olive trees. Its gabled façade expresses simplicity and tradition while the interior exudes a great sense of intimacy. To get married in this extraordinary place is to live an authentic experience, in an oasis of peace, far from the tumultuous lifestyle in this day and age.

A RELIGIOUS CEREMONY IN THE HILLS OF LAKE GARDA, AMONGST THE VINEYARDS AND OLIVE TREES

 

Situated in the eastern hills of Lake Garda, and surrounded by prestigious vineyards, San Giorgio in Valpolicella is one of the most beautiful ancient villages in Italy. 

 

Here stands the Pieve di San Giorgio, a great example of a Romanesque church, built entirely of exposed stone, that emphasises the expressive function of the material. 

 

The religious ceremony takes place in a context of elegant sobriety, a true immersion in authentic values, that search for the roots of the local culture.
