When you walk down the world-famous Ponte di Rialto (Rialto Bridge), among a crowd of tourists taking pictures and enjoying the market specialities, you will enter the main St Mark’s island, the heart of Venice. Just a few steps along the Gran Canal, a 17th-century elegant palace lies facing the bridge and large water channel with its lovely gondolas and "traghetti". Palazzo Cavalli is the venue for civil weddings in Venice: simple and elegant with its Venetian decors, period furniture, Murano glass chandeliers and the small balcony with wonderful views of the Grand Canal and the Rialto's bridge.
Although located in the heart of the town this palace offers privacy from the world outside. The marriage hall allows about 80 guests inside. It is possible in case of more guests attending the event to get married in the Council Room, in the nearby palace, which is also very nice and intimate.
The Mayor never celebrates weddings, unless personally requested and he is usually available for celebrities. It is possible to add personal vows, readings and poems to the ceremony. Civil weddings in Venice can be celebrated from Monday to Sunday at any hour of the day
Just a little surcharge will allow you to broadcast your wedding online, live, filming the whole event. Your family can watch your wedding from their sitting room everywhere in the world.
Spouses have the unique opportunity to reach the wedding venue on a gondola or enjoy a romantic ride just after the ceremony.
