This article wants to be a small guide you can consult in case you want to organize your wedding in Venice.
Venice is home to many different religious cultures, in fact you can find both Orthodox churches, synagogues and of course a multitude of Catholic churches.
As a wedding photographer I must say that it's really hard to choose a favourite location because Venice offers so much, probably for me no location can exceed Ca' Sagredo Hotel.
Wedding venues in Venice
This hotel is near Rialto and you can reach it by foot, waterbus number 1 o 2 (ca' d'oro stop) or by watertaxi.
The music room with its frescoes will make you feel like were at the time of the Republic of Serenissina.
The ceremonial hall instead is located at the end of the main staircase and overlooks the Grand Canal, when the sun sets the light inside the hall will make all the colors shine giving your wedding- and the photographs of your wedding- a shine never seen before .
If you like a "green" atmospheres, I recommend Palazzo Palladio which is located in the Giudecca island, easily reachable by vaporetto number 2 or by taxi. This hotel that is part of the Bauer group. A beautiful building that manages to blend the modern with the classic.
I worked for many weddings in this hotel as a photographer and I must say that the garden is beautiful, spacious and it offers a series of outdoor tables where dinner or buffet will be served.
Obviously most of the marriages I photographed took place in the town hall.
Palazzo Cavalli is a building located near Rialto, you can reach it by foot, by vaporetto number 1 or number 2 or by taxi.
Once you get in you will go in the first room where the documents will be processed and read the various articles of the law.
Once the bureaucratic part is over, you will go to the main hall where the guests will sit down and where the wedding ceremony will take place.
Once the wedding is over, I always take my clients to the amazing terrace that overlooks the Gran Canal and the rialto bridge.
