Same Sex Civil Partnerships

From May 2016 same-sex civil partnerships have been legal in Italy so we are delighted to be able to organise your ceremony in stunning Lake Garda. We can also organise symbolic ceremonies for you where you can say your own vows and personalise your ceremony to how you would like this to be. (no paperwork involved and you can look to organise your partnership in your own country if possible).

Please check the link on the government website and fill in your details to obtain the information.

We are very excited to offer 4 resorts where we can offer a same-sex ceremony, these resorts are all very different and offer something special for your Lake Garda wedding and we are here to guide you on the perfect venue for you both.

Same sex ceremony at Malcesine Castle
Ceremony at Malcesine Castle.


Ever dreamed of marrying at a Castle? Look no further as Malcesine Castle offers a terrace near the top of the Castle where you marry with stunning views over the lake and the impressive Monte Baldo Mountain on the other side. If you prefer to marry in the town then the Captains Palace offers a lovely indoor wedding room. Malcesine is suited to small and large wedding parties and also great for a winter wedding.

View from Riva del Garda beach.

Riva del Garda

Riva is the perfect location for your wedding with the choice of a lovely indoor wedding room situated in the square by the lake or an outdoor venue near the harbour. The local people and tourists in Riva often stand and cheer and engage with our weddings as they see our couples after marrying in the indoor wedding room and this creates such a memorable atmosphere. The outdoor venue offers beautiful views over the harbour and has an amazing position, you can also look to hold your wedding reception here too or if you prefer somewhere else then Riva has a fantastic choice of restaurants, not to mention the designer shops and hotels to cater for all budgets.

Torri del Benaco Castle view.

Torri del Benaco

For something a little different Torri offers you the opportunity to marry in the wonderful lemon groves situated within the Castle grounds, or the top of tower with amazing views over the lake and Torri perhaps? Depending on your wedding party size we can advise you on the options that Torri offers and guide you in the right direction. After your ceremony we can suggest a reception venue in Torri or how about in nearby Bardolino? We can organise a boat cruise for you and your wedding party after some refreshments from Torri to Bardolino where there is a great reception venue and a good choice of hotels and shops.

About Torri del Benaco


Situated on the north shore of Lake Garda and approx 5kms from Riva, Arco in Trentino is a region famous for the Dolomite mountains and its Castles. The symbol of ‘Arco’ is the tower ruins of the tower ‘Torre di Arco’ which is the medieval castle which is one of the locations in the garden where you can marry. There is an old town centre with many picturesque squares, wells and hidden alleys with some lovely shops and bars. There is also the 15th century Palazzo Giuliani, an impressive place to marry with its frescoed walls and ceilings and romantic balcony for the perfect photo opportunity overlooking the town square. Arco Casino is one of the other venues which is great for larger wedding parties and you can look to have your ceremony and wedding reception here, but because Riva is very close you may prefer to have your wedding reception in Riva del Garda where there is a great selection of restaurants to choose from for your wedding reception.
