Italian Lakes Wedding Team worked serveral times at Hotel Villa Crespi on Lake Orta.
On our blog you can find dozens of posts telling about weddings we planned at this famous venue which has been included in Relais & Chateau circuit since 2012.
First of all let us tell you something about Villa Crespi. Villa Crespi is located in Orta San Giulio on Lake Orta one of the most fascinating lakes in Piemonte region.
This home was built by the end of 1800 from Beniamino Crespi, a rich Italian business man charmed by Bagdad appeal. It took 12 years to build this wonderful building and for its handcrafts he decided to use the most precious materials. Green marbled came from Polcevera, red one from Levanto, he wanted Sicily jaspers, Swedish, Spanish and French marbles.
As for stuccoes he wished for handmade embossed copper moulds. There were stalls for horses, a greenhouse, a dock a big wall with wonderful iron gates and a 48 meters minaret; all this was surrounded by terraced gardens toward the Lake.
After more than 100 years, after hosting princesses and queens, Villa Crespi is now an luxury hotel. Bridegrooms coming from all over the world simply love it. They choose it for an exclusive ceremony, a special wedding, a different reception, an important party or just for an unforgettable dinner.
If you are keen for a wedding at Villa Crespi you will find here many suggestions and ideas.
They are all part of our long experience on wedding planning in one of the most exclusive venue on Lake Orta. Enjoy it!
Wedding Ceremony at Villa Crespi
You could plan wonderful symbolic ceremonies or non-chatolic ceremonies at Villa Crespi.
An outdoor wedding ceremony can be planned in the park overlooking the villa that could be the prefect frame for your event.
You can see a little portion of the lake so if you are looking for a ceremony by the shores we rather suggest Villa Gippini in the historical centre of Orta. We cannot plan legal civil ceremonies at Villa Crespi, the only venue where you could have it, is Villa Bossi.
Wedding Reception at Villa Crespi
The main room where wedding receptions are held is precious and wonderful. It matches the style of the Villa… just like Arabian Nights. It is not very big it can host up to 30-40 guests.
If you are keen for an indoor reception and you are more than 30-40 guests you could use all other rooms and wonderful veranda, splitting the group.
If you are keen for an outdoor reception and you are more than 40 your wedding meal could be served under the wide marquee in the park.
Floral arrangements at Villa Crespi
Tables at Villa Crespi are not wide so Floral designer Monika suggest to go for medium centrepieces. They must be not too small and not too big. Too small centrepieces will be lost among glasses and bottles and too big centrepieces will make the table too busy.
As far as shades are concerned we can suggest light colours (white an pink in particular). Pale colours are the best to contrast golden and deep blue details and walls inside the villa. Monika suggests orchids, peonies, hydrangeas and roses for a reception to Villa Crespi. All images and floral arrangements above by La Piccola Selva floral designer.
