Wedding venues in Umbria: focus on La Badia di Orvieto
Umbria, a small region located in the very heart of Italy, filled with hidden gems and wedding venues to discover.
Today I would like to introduce an original venue that has a special place in my heart: La Badia di Orvieto.
La Badia di Orvieto is the perfect spot for a romantic wedding. You can celebrate your Catholic wedding in the XI century Church, embellished with precious marble floor.
You will just fall in love with ist marble mosaic floors, arched porticos, frescoed vaulted ceilings. And let us mention the 12-sided tower that dates back to 1103!
If you wish for a civil ceremony the magnificent Gothic stone arch, framing the view to the tufa rock of Orvieto, will suit as an unblemished location. If that’s a summer wedding in Umbria you’re are opting for, then the reception can take place in the beautiful outdoor spaces. There are some solutions for the indoor options, too.
Destination Wedding: the dream of getting married in Italy
Italy as a destination wedding holds a special place in the heart of many couples. Some have family there, some have met there, whether on holiday or business trip, some others simply love the idea of getting married in Italy for its culture, colors, fun and tasty food and wine.
Wedding celebrations are taken seriously in Italy, so choosing to get married in Italy it’s only a natural one!
Destination wedding in Umbria: hospitality solutions at La Badia di Orvieto
La Badia di Orvieto, besides being a very romantic wedding venue in Umbria, is also a four-star hotel with 22 rooms and 5 suites. When travelling with a small-medium group of guests it could be the ideal venute for your destination wedding.
Do you know that La Badia di Orvieto can be qualified as the oldest hotel in Italy? In the past centuries it offered hospitality to saints and prelates who searched for tranquility for meditation and spiritual retreats.
The wedding venue lays in the green Umbria countryside, overlooking Todi and its tufa rock. La Badia di Orvieto also offers a marvellous and spacious park, hills covered with olive trees and rows of grapevines and, as told just above, a stunning Cathedral. The restaurant, swimming pool and tennis court complete the offer.
During your stay you could organize a day out, visiting Todi or the nearby Civita di Bagnoregio (half an hour to go) or even Siena (one hour and a half) or Florence (two hours).
A perfect destination wedding, indeed!
La Badia di Orvieto: a wedding venue I enjoyed myself
When speaking about wedding venues we sometimes make a classical mistake: we talk about it as an impersonal venue.
But since I received these beautiful pictures from the renowned wedding photographer Chelsea Mason, Ottawa’s Best Wedding Photographer for five years in a row, I decided to tell you about La Badia di Orvieto through her lens.
Kaitlyn and Mitch tied the knot in an intimate ceremony, forerun by an engagement session in Rome (two hours drive from La Badia).
They decided to exchange their vows under the arch overlooking Todi and the ceremony continued with an elegant, luxury family dinner for the reception in the abbey old refectory.
The couple chose this wedding venue in Umbria because of the love of the Bride for olive leaves and because this location epitomizes Italian charm and romance.
The Bride is very keen on details, as you can see looking at the pictures. The couple’s son looked utterly adorable in his suit and bowtie.
