Wedding tourism: getting married in Italy

Wedding tourism, or rather the organisation of a wedding in a country other than one’s country of residence, is a growing phenomenon. In 2023, there were 13,600 weddings between foreign couples celebrated in Italy, around 2,000 more than in the previous year. The decision to celebrate weddings on the Peninsula depends on the rich artistic and cultural heritage, the beauty and variety of the territories, which offer unparalleled attractions. Among the destinations for wedding tourism, the Eternal City cannot be left out, a privileged base for an unforgettable honeymoon, which could include enchanting places such as Umbria, Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast.

Immersed in greenery and located 1 hour away from Rome, the Antiche Scuderie Odescalchi offers the perfect mix of history, nature and elegance. The structure, listed in the Italian Registry of Residences of Excellence and in the Golden Register of Historical Residences, is able to offer guests from beyond the borders an immersive experience in the landscapes and culture of a land that boasts millenary traditions, while guaranteeing comfort, entertainment and impeccable organisation.

A functional location with unquestionable charm

Surrounded by centuries-old woods and English-style gardens, our historic residence is the ideal location for foreign couples who choose Rome as their wedding destination, but wish to celebrate their wedding far from the chaos of the city. The admirable view of Lake Bracciano, the lush glades and cultivated fields offer a breathtaking backdrop in every season of the year, providing inspiration for original themed weddings in a classic, contemporary or natural chic mood.

The location, always granted on an exclusive basis, has large halls with fireplaces and vast green areas, which on mild days allow many stages of the event, including the ceremony, to be organised outdoors. Thanks to agreements with the Municipality of Bracciano, it is, in fact, possible to celebrate the authentic civil rite at the facility, which, unlike the symbolic rite, is valid before the law. A must, which allows one to enjoy the day to the full, avoiding any displacement. For couples who choose the religious rite, however, the structure can reserve one of the splendid local churches, including the Cathedral of Santo Stefano or the Renaissance era Santa Maria del Riposo, a small jewel only 3 km from the Scuderie. Transport can be provided by shuttle buses provided by the hotel, which can take guests back to nearby accommodation at the end of the reception. The surroundings of Bracciano, located in the heart of the Roman Tuscia and close to the Latium coastline, offer a wide choice of hotels and B&Bs, which we will be happy to book for your guests.
