There is an even more charming choice than getting married in Venice, which is to marry on one of its islands. More private and unique, far removed from the bustle of the city centre, these islands can hold special surprises for you.
If you have never had the chance, my advice is that you organise a tour (Yep, I can help you there too) to find out about their true beauty.
In this case, though, you have to be prepared to organise a wedding away from the area of the Grand Canal and the classic Venetian settings, far from palaces with their frescoes and hotels with stupendous panoramic terraces.
The islands surrounding Venice are something completely different. They are right for a more intimate and sweet wedding. They will suit you if you love the more original aspects of Venice that are off the beaten track, if you’re looking for an unconventional side even of the world’s best-known city.
The distinctive character of the Isle of Burano, for example, lies in its houses, each painted a completely different garish colour: a potpourri of nuances, and something to choose if you want to give your marriage a lively and bracing feel. You can also choose a walk here to take some unforgettable photos, provided this is in keeping with the style of your wedding.
If you prefer a more intimate and refined style, while still in contact with green natural spaces, I would like to suggest to you the Isle of Torcello. This island of the Venetian Lagoon can also accommodate religious ceremonies (in the church of Santa Fosca). In addition, the Cipriani Inn offers a beautiful location for your reception, or you could organise your symbolic rite there. Does the idea appeal to you?
If this is the case, I would advise that you ask yourselves precisely what it was that made you fall in love with Venice so much that you wanted to choose it as the destination for your marriage. Doing this should help you to answer the question about what kind of wedding you are dreaming of.
Scenic, unique, as unforgettable as a vision of your dreams, or intimate, confidential, sealed with an embrace: your reply will guide you in choosing the best destination, whether it be in Venice or on one of its islands.
