Country romance: real wedding on Lake Garda


Located in the North East corner of Italy, Veneto region offers so many wedding destinations among cities of art and full of charm like Venice and Verona, great hill views and small towns where time stands still, memorable Alpine settings for wonderful Winter Weddings and spectacular Lake sceneries framed by mountains and lush greenery.

Lake Garda is definitely one of the best known and appreciated destinations for a wedding in Italy. What is amazing is that, in addition to the most vacationer locations on the coast, it still offers unexpected glimpses and cosy and romantic settings where relaxing and fine weddings may take place.

On top of one of the hills facing the lake you can find small perched churches with stunning views on the deep blue waters; as in ancient times you will walk along the narrow cobbled streets to reach your guests for the most intimate and romantic ceremony.

One of these minor villages overlooking the eastern shore of Lake Garda is Pai, a small hamlet known since the beginning of X century.

This village is divided in two locations: the oldest part is perched on the side of Baldo Mount and still has the remains of ancient fortifications.

Wedding in Torri del Benaco Lake Garda

The old chapel of the original castle is the current parish church dedicated to St Mark and preserves a beautiful baptistery of the 16th century and frescoes from the 13th and 14th century.

The modern nucleus of the village is directly on the lakeside.

The little old church of Pai offers an ideal venue for couples looking for an intimate ceremony in the mood of simple Italian lifestyle.

Inside just a few decorations helped to create a simple and evocative atmosphere delighting bride and groom and all friends and family members who came to be there with them!

After the ceremony we always suggest taking a pleasant intimate walk on the lake and having some special moments just for the two of you.

Torri del Benaco, its ancient castle, its relaxing lake promenade offer amazing corners for your wedding photos in the simple atmosphere characterized by old walls of the castle overlooking the small harbour.

It still reveals its nature of fishing village and grants to those who visit charming scenes of everyday life.

From the lake we recommend to reach a very special venue that is ideal for a refined but also relaxed wedding reception.

It is a cozy home of the end of 1700 recently renewed to be an enchanting place to enjoy the discreet charm of an incomparable nature and the unique pleasure of an exquisite hospitality, enchanted by a breathtaking view of Lake Garda.

A wonderful aperitif will be served on the terraces and wide open spaces; Relaxing sofas and corners arranged on the lawn are at your disposal to enjoy the beauty of the lake throughout the evening.

Outside spaces blend with the elegant dining room seamlessly guaranteeing a wonderful view even in case of poor weather. A magical frame for a wedding on lake Garda!

Be ready to taste delicious food and the best wines of the area well known all over the country.

The Wedding dinner provides a rich welcome cocktail, a three courses dinner followed by a buffet of desserts and wedding cake served in the garden.
But the chef is at your disposal to create the best solution for you according to your specific request!

Moreover this location offers various services like children menu, babysitter and the possibility of fireworks and sky lanterns.

Dances and party may go on until late and for your accommodation in the surroundings there are plenty of elegant and comfortable hotels where you can also enjoy the days leading to the wedding.
