The Forest of Enchantment

Italian Weddings by Coach
Organised by 'Beautiful Italian Weddings'

Loved for its stark contrasts, Malcesine is an ancient town filled with lush Mediterranean foilage and olive groves, as well as an alpine landscape at its uppermost end.  Originally a sleepy fishing village, it has evolved into a quaint resort with narrow cobbled streets and a small harbour where artists can be found selling their paintings and crafts.
Weddings in this town are ideal as the area has much to offer guests.

Civil Wedding Ceremonies by 'Beautiful Italian Weddings'

Civil weddings in Malcesine take place in its fairytale Scaligeri castle, a medieval fortress that dominates the town, with stunning views covering the entire lake, mountains and picturesque roofs of the town below.  This is definitely the most popular location for weddings on Lake Garda, as the Castle is very old and very well preserved.

There are two ceremony rooms in the castle; one for indoor ceremonies and a terrace on a tower with stunning lake views for outdoor ones.  The atmosphere is pure mediaeval, everything has been made out of local white stone.

General Information

Weddings in Malcesine can take place from Monday to Sunday three times a day:

  • At 11.00 am
  • At 2.00 pm
  • At 5.00 pm

There are CD players in both locations at no extra charge.

No impediment declaration must be signed at least the day before, but exceptions can be made on request.

A deposit of 30% of the price of the location must be paid to 'Beautiful Italian Weddings' to confirm your booking.

Wedding ceremony lasts approximately 30 minutes.

Rice or flower petals can be thrown outside the entrace of the castle.

The wedding location is reserved for the couple for 3 hours.  The castle is visited by tourists but you will be the only wedding couple in the Castle (and there will be plenty of time to take photographs).
