If you are planning your wedding in Italy, but want to avoid crowded places and cities or if you would like to have your wedding day celebrated in a very special place, we have the ideal location the Marche region!
Le Marche is a region of Central Italy, set between Adriatic coast and Apennine mountains. You will be amazed by the landscape: an endless variety of cliffs overlooking emerald beaches, countryside hills rich in amazing historical villages, where art, tradition and beauty are jealously guarded as a priceless treasure.
Why choose Le Marche for your wedding in Italy?
Maybe you have never heard about Le Marche before (unless you have already read this article by “The Guardian” from January 2016), so the reason why you should consider this amazing region for your Wedding Destination, is that this is one of those places that will leave you with a question “Why didn’t I visit it sooner?”
The most popular description of le Marche is “ Italy in one region” and this is simply true, as you will find nature, mountains, countryside, rocky and sandy beaches, art, traditions, religion, stunning landscapes for every taste: we have a beautiful coast - with idyllic beaches where you will be able to set your wedding day as in a movie, or maybe you would prefer to say “I do” looking at the emerald sea from the top of stunning cliff of Monte Conero. If you love art and history, you can choose to travel through time from Roman amphitheatres and ancient walled fortifications to medieval villages over the hills, churches rich in art works by Raffaello, Gentile da Fabriano, Bramante, Piero della Francesca, Lorenzo Lotto and much more!
If you would love to say “I do” in Italy it is probably due to the fact that in Italy you will find poetic sunny landscapes together with art and culture and the “wedding trip” would be also a “family trip”, as says The Knot, one of the reasons why people choose destination wedding is that it is a good occasion for family reunion, and maybe your honeymoon, too.
In Le Marche you can find the ideal setting, for each part of your adventure: you can rent a villa in the countryside to stay with your family and friends, then have your wedding day in a special venue you will choose amongst historic churches, exclusive beaches, ancient palaces, medieval castles or romantic countryside, have a traditional Italian wedding reception and party, to celebrate with your guests savouring the authentic cuisine in a familiar and intimate atmosphere and then spend some days in discovering all the beauty Le Marche can offer in terms of typical landscapes, nature and history.
