Elopement on the Italian Riviera

With its wonderful beaches, the Italian Riviera is the perfect location for all couples who wish to get married at the seaside. Picturesque towns and villages like Portofino, Lerici, Portovenere, Santa Margherita or the Cinque Terre rank among the most beautiful and most popular travel destinations in Italy.

Therefore, it is not surprising that also weddings on the Italian Riviera become more and more popular. Apart from symbolic, catholic or protestant wedding ceremonies and receptions, the small towns along the Italian Riviera are perfectly suited for elopements and spontaneous civil weddings with only a few guests. Portofino and the Gulf of Tigulio area provide the most elegant backdrop for weddings, featuring beautiful elegant yachts, stylish private villas and luxury hotels. Whereas, the Cinque Terre, Lerici & the Gulf of Poets region provides a more laid-back atmosphere with a breathtaking Mediterranean backdrop.

Elopement on the Italian Riviera

Anita and Karl decided to get married in one of the fantastic villages of the Italian Riviera. With their family and closest friends they celebrated a small and intimate civil wedding at one of the most beautiful locations of the Italian Riviera. The civil wedding ceremony itself was followed by a nice boat trip with all their guests. On the boat they organized a little champagne reception and a typical Italian Aperitif with specialties such as pizza or focaccia. Afterwards they went on to various little idyllic bays along the Riviera which are located away from the tourist regions and mostly can only be reached by boat. At those wonderful, white beaches they enjoyed a relaxed day at the seaside. So with its crystal-clear water, Mediterranean climate and fantastic beaches, the Italian Riviera does not only provide wonderful wedding venues – it also offers perfect opportunities for a great framework programme. In the evening – in order to round off their wedding in Italy – the bridal couple and its guests went to a nice Italian restaurant at the seaside and enjoyed a delicious fish-meal in a nice and cozy atmosphere.
