I wrote many posts on our blog but I recently realised that we never wrote a full post telling you about all weddings we planned there and all the secrets VILLA BOSSI hide!
Do not worry some will be well kept for the couples who are coming over to tie the knot in this special corner of our Italian Lakes.
As many of you know Villa Bossi is Orta town hall.
It is a wonderful 1700 villa overlooking the lake and St. Julius Island.
The villa has a stunning garden with private jetty.
This is the corner of heaven where you can celebrate your legal civil ceremony in Orta.
An outdoor civil ceremony by the shores… a dream!
The garden is simple yet very elegant and charming. It is always embellished with local flowers and a scented wisteria gallery on its left.
The bride is coming from the waters… by rowing boat
As you saw in many posts bride can reach the town hall by rowing boat.
She can be accompanied by her father, bothers or even bridesmaids!
This makes bridal arrival even more romantic. She walks down the natural aisle of the garden to reach groom and guests waiting for her!

Large groups or even very intimate weddings
It could be the perfect setting for large groups or even very intimate weddings just little elopes!
Readings, poems and live music
Civil ceremony can be enriched with readings, poems, live music and even blessings!
We could suggest many options for all kind of ceremonies.
Flowers and decorations
Villa Bossi can be decorated with flowers and all decorations you may prefer. We will be pleased to help you creating the best atmosphere for your wedding ceremony according your colour preferences and theme.
Indoor ceremonies at Villa Bossi
If you are planning an off season wedding or in case of bad weather Villa Bossi gives you the opportunity to use their indoor room which is not a B plan but a wonderful other solution!
We can help you in the whole paperwork process but in case you want to avoid it, you can simply rent the area and plan your blessing or symbolic ceremony here.
We will be happy to suggest best celebrants that can tailor your blessing ceremony according your tastes.
Just few words for Orta mayor’s delegate Ms. Roberta.
She is the lady who usually perform all civil ceremonies at Villa Bossi. She is simply great! Kind, helpful and very friendly!
A big thank to Roberta for her big help!

Before being a wedding planner and coordinator I worked for an American company planning events. I turned into wedding planning for SposiamoVi group, more than 5 years ago. Since Italian Lakes Wedding was founded I work with them to make bride and groom’s dreams come true on this wonderful Lakes of North West Italy and Piemonte region.
l love creating with my couples the perfect event for them following their wishes and needs, helping to find the best solution for their ideas and budget.
I like meeting people talking with them and know more about their cultures and traditions. I do like sharing Italian customs with them and working in team with couples to let them experience a real and dreamy Italian wedding!
I will be pleased to guide couples along lovely traditional and pedestrian roads of Orta village discovering the beauty of this romantic Lake between villas, traditional restaurants wonderful churches and enchanting St. Julius Island.
I will be happy to let couples discover bigger and charming Lake Maggiore with its Borromeo Islands, wonderful hotels and villas overlooking the waters.
