For a couple of years there have been more and more couples who want a more intimate, reserved and extremely romantic party by opting for an elopement or a micro wedding, especially in this period dominated by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Micro wedding in Italy

Among the most popular destinations in the world for a romantic getaway, Italy is certainly the favorite of many couples who dream of an elopement or a micro wedding. The Bel Paese offers a great variety of settings that are perfect backgrounds for romantic events, such as its amazing cities of art, the lovely countryside or its wonderful beaches. You are spoiled for choice! In addition, it is also perfect as a honeymoon destination or to allow your guests to spend some unforgettable days.

Eloping in Italy you will be the absolute protagonist of your wedding day! Just the two of you and a few selected guests, only the people you love the most. It will be a small and intimate ceremony followed by a relaxing reception, perhaps just like a normal family dinner, but much more fun and with attention to every detail!

Elope in Italy

You can choose to get married in Italy without guests. If your idea is to celebrate the love of your life by organizing a very special day, you can think of a symbolic ceremony on a hill in the countryside, in an original Tuscan village, on the romantic shore of a lake, on a private beach or in a natural cave… the possibilities are practically endless. Escaping to Italy gives you a lot of freedom and I will make sure that you can enjoy your stay and spend the wedding day you’ve always dreamed of. Let me help you with planning a unique experience!

Plan your romantic getaway in Italy

Although elopements are usually small and intimate weddings, they require a careful planning. To ensure a successful event, there are many things to consider. First of all, the wedding venue. I usually suggest choosing villas or resorts where it is possible to set up both the ceremony and the reception, as well as enjoying the stay exclusively. In this way, once you arrive, you don’t have to plan any further transfer for you or your guests.

Since elopements usually include no more than 10 people, there will be no need for a large venue and all the focus will be on high-end services.

My experience and knowledge of the most exclusive wedding venues in Italy allows me to suggest the best solution according to your needs and desires. If you’d choose an elopement in northern Italy, for example on Lake Como or the Dolomites, or in southern Italy such as Sicily or the Amalfi Coast, I can offer you many venues options from my highly selected portfolio.

Some of the best are no doubt found in Tuscany, the iconic region in central Italy famous all over the world. In my selection of favorite venues you will find options for every style, from Villa La Vedetta, a boutique hotel with a wonderful terrace overlooking Florence, to Borgo Santo Pietro, a luxury resort organized just like a Tuscan village. All over Italy there are, of course, many fabulous options, such as the Raya Hotel, an exclusive holiday resort in Sicily on the island of Panarea!
