Weddings at Lake Orta
Welcome to Lake Orta Weddings! We can help you with your plans and arrangements for a very special wedding in Italy. We aim to work for people with a modest budget - we work with medium priced hotels and restaurants - that would like a unique Italian wedding in this wonderful unspoilt area. Here, you can enjoy a wedding in a charming italian lakeside setting, and experience the excellent food and friendly service of some of the local hotels and restaurants on your special day - and perhaps for a few days before and afterwards. At Lake Orta, the local people have hospitality in their blood, and there is no better place to have your wedding reception!
What we offer. We will do as much as you want us to do. You may just want advice on venues, or we can help you organise any or all aspects of the arrangements, from choosing the location for the wedding ceremony and the venue for the reception, obtaining all necessary paperwork in Italy, with organising evenings or trips to local sites before or after the wedding, with the accommodation (we have up to 12 private apartments available for your use), with travel arrangements, with advice on any aspects of your wedding at Lake Orta, and with interpretting as necessary, including acting as the official interpretter on the day (necessary unless you speak fluent Italian).
What are our qualifications? We have known the area intimately for more than 25 years, we love Italy and Lake Orta in particular, and have many local contacts we can draw on to support your arrangements, speak fluent Italian, and also, we got married ourselves at Orta San Giulio (that's us in some of the pictures)!
Costs. We will be very happy to discuss your requirements, and to provide an estimate of costs at the earliest opportunity. With careful planning, taking advantage of the private apartments we can provide for some or all of your party if you wish, and the amazingly cheap flights now available from the U.K., we guarantee that the cost of your wedding will be less than a comparable wedding in the U.K., but for an event that will be quite incomparable!
Why us? We are specialists in Lake Orta, and don't claim to know anywhere else as well! Aside from having this local knowledge and local contacts, we offer the completely personalised service that you would expect from a small organisation. There are further savings too when you use us as your wedding consultants: we will not automatically push you towards a 'dream' hotel at Orta, because we believe you can eat as well, and in a warmer atmosphere and for less cost, in other local hotels and restaurants, if that is what you would prefer. And if you choose to stay in some of our self-catering apartments for yourselves or your guests, not only is there a cost saving - especially if you or some of your guests would like to stay for a week or two around the big day - but you and your guests can have that much more privacy and flexibility. And we can provide a private apartment for your use when you come to have a look at some of the venues, and to make your plans for your special day...
