There can surely
be few places in the world which can offer a more exciting,
scenic and idyllic setting to tie the knot than in Venice.
The famous island lagoon provides a fascinating and adventurous
alternative to a more local or traditional style wedding,
with a stunning backdrop and atmosphere to be relived over
and over again.
Many couples choose to marry in Venice for exactly these
reasons. The city is synonymous with love and romance of course
and with its intimate and enticing aura and setting, Venice
will easily ensure that the old proverb of the day being the
happiest of your life is realised in full. Allow yourself
to imagine snaking your way down the Grand Canal in a gondola,
dressed in your finest, with perhaps even the added touch
of being serenaded by your gondolier! Throw in the surroundings
of the ancient and historic living work of art which is Venice
and you could be forgiven for being swept along at the thought
of an unforgettable day.
Many places specialise in arranging your big day for you
and offer a wide range of venues, accommodations, themes and
cater for all groups of people. Palazzo Cavalli near
the Rialto Bridge is the wedding centre for civil ceremonies
in Venice. The famous building overlooking the Grand Canal
was bought by the city specifically for this purpose.
As with any marriage, the legalities must be gone through
and one such hiccup with wedding abroad, including Venice,
is the bureaucracy involved. It is better do have done your
homework in advance and engage a professional or even wedding
planner to ensure your big day is all taken care of so you
need only worry about the important stuff.
