Are you dreaming of a classically romantic wedding? Of raising flutes of bubbly on a sun-splashed terrace with sensational views? Or perhaps you envisaged a more offbeat event...
Whatever it is that fires your imagination, our six hotels in Italy are world leaders in the art of romance. All have experts at the ready to create an event unlike any you'll experience elsewhere.
Tiziana Laterza at Hotel Caruso, for instance, was once asked to organise an array of street-food stalls serving local delicacies such as fried pizza, while Hotel Cipriani's Marco dalla Via arranged for 5m-high cypress trees to be brought from Florence to Venice to create a 'garden' in the hotel's banqueting venue. And what else to stage at Villa Sant'Andrea in Sicily, but a Godfather-themed wedding? For expert Marilisa Bagnato, it was all part of the service.
Other magical weddings with Orient-Express...Our hotels in Italy are just six of our collection's many magical retreats in which to begin married life.
The Inn at Perry Cabin in Maryland, USA is so romantic that it has starred as a wedding venue in many Hollywood films. Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons in Oxfordshire, England is another amazing venue in which to tie the knot. Raymond Blanc's magical country house provides the perfect setting for his Michelin-starred cuisine.
