21 Jan 2019
Situated in south west Italy, Calabria offers beautiful beaches, charming villages and rugged terrain - presenting a stunning wedding setting
The team at Calabria Weddings & Events are experts in planning weddings in Calabria. Here, they share their top reasons to get married in the Italian region.
Italy is the place. The old towns and cities full of breath-taking architecture, the walks through the traditional narrow dimly lit ancient streets, the old folks passing the time of day in the piazza, the church bells ringing and everywhere you look you live and breathe 'amore'… what more could you want for your special day?
2. Venue choices
There is a venue to suit everyone; options are limitless and can accommodate every style, reflect any personality, and allow for every budget, while making your wedding unique to you. From historic castles and quaint churches to intimate restaurants and large modern hotels, no matter what your tastes are your wishes can be fulfilled when you chose Calabria as a wedding destination.
Breath-taking splendor, Italy is uniquely beautiful. It has an unparalleled mixture of the loveliness of nature, organically blended with the beauty of centuries-old culture and traditions. The result is an incredible backdrop for your wedding. Calabria is located on the tip of Italy's 'boot' and offers the best of both worlds; spectacular mountain views create a backdrop for long stretches of coastline with both sandy and pebbly beaches and crystal-clear waters. Traditional historic centres with narrow streets, stunning coastlines with clear waters or hillside and mountain settings – Calabria has it all.
4. Spectacular food
The Calabrese are also incredibly proud of their local cuisine and there are many dishes created to tempt and seduce your tastebuds; quality ingredients elegantly presented with evocative aromas. A lot of the venues customise their menus to the bride and groom’s individual tastes so you can ensure you and your guests are well catered for. Obviously, Italy is not just famous for its fresh, locally sourced food, but also the wine that complements it so well.
5. Quality services offered by our carefully selected partners
Venues, florists, photographers, musicians, decorations... the list goes on. The vistas are truly breath-taking and extraordinary in their variety, all inviting you to celebrate in a style that is reflective of you.
6. Perfect setting for a gathering of family and friends
Calabrese are, by nature, friendly people who nurture their traditions. Within the setting of your wedding they will be eager to please and will want to make your day as special as it can be – our specially selected partners are tasked with this aim.
7. Activities for guests
Your guests will be having a holiday when they attend your wedding and will be in full holiday spirit. Calabria has lots of activities on offer to entertain your guests during their time here. Excursions can be organised to suit every taste from relaxing at the rejuvenating Thermal Springs, to kite-surfing, scuba diving for the more energetic, as well as visiting local wineries and cooking lessons. Therefore, as well as enjoying your wedding day, you can truly make it a wedding holiday to remember.
8. The weather is delightful
Warm to hot weather for approximately nine months a year, this allows you to have a wonderful time out in the sun, under the stars in a beautiful garden, or on a swimming pool terrace for your wedding reception. Your guests can enjoy the balmy warm evenings watching the spectacular sunsets on this very special occasion.
Most couples choose to holiday in Italy after the wedding and from Calabria, most destinations are easily accessible: The Amalfi Coast, Venice, Sicily, or Rome. No need to take another long flight or adapt to a different timezone. Enjoy your precious time together as you take in the culture, shopping, sun, food, and wine, all while interacting with exceptionally hospitable and friendly people.
