Marriage in Venice
Civil weddings in Venice are often celebrated in the superb Palazzo Cavalli which overlooks the Grand Canal. The bride can arrive at the venue in a gondola. With its formal and imposing grand staircase, the Palazzo Cavalli is the most popular venue for civil ceremonies.

No wonder, this stunning city of marble palaces, ancient churches, canals, and waterways is a magnet for those in love. Venice is your way to get a taste of ‘La Dolce Vita’ Clooney-style, as the city provided the beautiful backdrops for their wedding celebrations.
We receive requests for weddings on a gondola with impressive regularity. However, we strongly recommend not to do this kind of ceremony. Gondolas are a rather small type of boats not convenient for a wedding ceremony. Considering that the waters of canals can get rather rough due to a large number of vessels cruising them, there is always a risk of your officiant or yourselves losing balance and falling into the water. Not the best way to remember your wedding in Venice.
