Destination wedding on Lake Orta

The charming beauty and fascinating peacefulness of nature: a splendid setting without equal for an unbelievably romantic wedding

Discover the marvelous Lake Orta: still very authentic and natural, the lake is located at the heart of the Italian Piedmont region, separated from the bigger Lake Maggiore by the imposing mountain Mottarone.

A wedding on Lake Orta will benefit from a marvelous, almost fairy-tale atmosphere… A peaceful, very romantic setting of breathtaking natural landscapes… charming views and a relaxing atmosphere… nothing but silence, quiet and your love… Absolutely charming, isn’t it?

The beauty of peacefulness and authenticity: live the wedding in Italy of your dreams

As the greatest majority of northern Italian lakes, the Lake Orta was created through Glacial Erosion at the end of the last Ice Age: because of its peculiarities, this fascinating lake could even be considered a “fjord-lake”.

With a romantic wedding on Lake Orta you will have the possibility of benefitting from a secluded, intimate location without giving up all modern comforts: enjoy the natural, unaltered beauty of the lake while being just an hour drive away from the liveliness of the big city of Milan and its international airport!

Charming history, breathtaking nature and fascinating legends

Surrounded by mountains, the lake looks like a precious jewel nestled in a rocky yet green environment… From the lake shores you will also have the possibility of spotting the majestic Mount Rosa (highest mountain of Italy) in the distance… Sheltered from the cold northern wind, for your wedding on Lake Orta you will have the possibility of benefitting of a pleasant, mild climate.

In the hearth of this splendid lake you will find a charming little isle, the so-called Isola San Giulio. According to tradition, the island was named after a Christian deacon who was converting this whole area to the Christianity during the 4th century. Legend has it, that the deacon had the very ambitious project of building 100 churches in northern Italy and that, when he was about to build his 100th church, he heard word of an impious island haunted by giant snakes and terrible dragons. Moved by his sacred duty he braved and killed all the monstrous creatures living on the island and built, at last, his 100th church on the isle to protect it from any other impious creature…

If you are dreaming of a big day worthy of a legend, why not choosing a wedding on Lake Orta?
