Venice has always been a crossroad of people, cultures, religions, traditions.
This fabulous melting pot has created over the years an amazing mix of artistic and architectural styles that are one of the main features of this beautiful and unique city. No wonder weddings in Venice are so requested!
Orthodox ceremonies in Italy are becoming increasingly popular especially in Venice where a sweet little Orthodox church stands in a small “campo” with no tourist shops in the surroundings. In Venetian-Byzantine style the church has a plain brick facade, bell-tower and simple yet ancient interiors with perhaps the oldest frescoes of the city. Ksenia and Lucio, in respect of their traditions chose to hold here their Russian Orthodox wedding in Venice.
It’s not a mystery that here at Italian Wedding Planners we love multicultural weddings!
