For centuries, Italy’s suggestive landscapes, spectacular coastline, castled villages and immortal cities have been the setting of international literature, theatre and cinema. Quite like no other place in the world, Italy’s unique combination of natural beauty and artistic wealth have captivated collective imagination and charmed artists, poets and international jet set alike.
In recent years, Italy has become the most popular wedding destination among foreign couples and celebrities alike, outclassing by far its neighbouring competitor, France. Last month’s lavish wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is just the tip of the iceberg. Tom Cruise & Kathie Holmes, Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel, Emily Blunt & John Krasinsky, John Legend & Chrissy Teigen… The list of illustrious couples tying the knot in Italy seems to be going on and on, especially among the big names of Hollywood show business.
This trend among famous couples has now reached impressive proportions and, while Italy certainly has a lot to offer, the main reason for such a phenomena can be found in one of this country’s greatest peculiarities: the ease with which every event is suddenly transformed in a magnificent spectacle, capable of captivating the whole world in an instant.
Italy has always been synonymous with elegance and romanticism. This magical country, where past and present harmoniously blend, and where beauty and refinement rule every aspect of life, is the perfect setting for a fairy-tale wedding. With its breath taking sceneries and elegant venues still immersed in an aura of ancient splendour, nothing speaks exclusive and glamorous like an Italian location.
Whether in a magnificent private castle near Rome, like Tom & Katie, a 16th century fortress in Florence, like Kim & Kanye, an aristocratic villa on Lake Como, like John & Chrissy, or a rustic country dwelling among Apulian hills, like Justin & Jessica, Italy offers a unique variety of scenery guaranteed to satisfy every taste and make any event absolutely unforgettable.
