Lake Orta Weddings

Your special wedding on Lake Orta

One of the prettiest lakes in northern Italy, intimate and romantic

Lake Orta is certalny the most romantic location in the Lake District.
Hills and mountains are very close to the Lake thus lending a fairy-tale atmosphere to the villages surrounding the water. Orta San Giulio is at the end of a small peninsula that juts out into Lake Orta.

Intricate wrought-iron balustrades and balconies adorn the 18th century buildings of this small, intimate and relaxing town. The main square of the town looks across the lake to the lovely island of San Giulio, which you can reach by boat.

This charming lake, surrounded by gentle hills, is the most enchanting and romantic of the Italian Lakes. Its romance has inspired artists, poets and writers from all over the world for century and for lovers it is hopelessly romantic.

Your Lake Orta Wedding will have the same atmosphere as in the ancient times and you will live and relive it as in a fairytale.

At only 45 minutes drive from Malpensa Airport, Lake Orta is the perfect choice for your fairy-tale wedding in Italy.
The area around Lake Orta has long been a favorite tourists, thanks to the quiet beauty of the landscape, its fascinating history and its wealth of artistic treasures, principally Romanesque and Baroque architecture.
Little but charming, Lake Orta lies to the west of Lake Maggiore, in Piedmont - Northen Italy. It is a minor star in the costellation of the subalpine lakes, but all the fascination and the history of the larger lakes seem to be concentrated in this short space.

The town of Orta San Giulio is also the only Italian lakes' car-free town.
Orta holds the visitors attention, with its houses roofed with thick slate tiles, it's lakeside Motta Square, called Il Palazzotto, with its garden cafés, ovelooked by the Palazzo della Comunità or Palazotto - a frescoed 16th century town hall. You can get married at the wedding hall in the town square, a 16th-century building with frescoed walls, an outside stairway and a tiny campanile breaking through the grey roof like a chimney.
