Modern Italy blends with rustic chic to mould a wedding venue fit for the glitterati in this reconstructed convent. Take your Prada to the poolside to feel like you are on a stylish photo shoot or languish in the decadently appointed bar, where you can call for cocktails until midnight like a film star. If you are looking for a spacious Italian Villa which personifies elegance and luxury then Villa Arcadio is the perfect place for you to say, “I do.”

Allow your guests to indulge in Italy’s finest produce as you host a wedding reception in the hotel’s stylish restaurant. Why not start with drinks on the terrace before sampling fresh fish from Lake Garda, complimented with local seasonal produce? As your evening spills into the pool or bar areas, punctuate the lacustrine breeze with the gentle sounds of music and laughter.
Villa Arcadio has 18 rooms and suites, perfect for a wedding of modest size yet extravagant celebration. Views of the luscious landscape add a special touch to the rustically chic accommodation; whilst a well-being programme complete with Finnish sauna, yoga and Oriental massage can help you to relax before the big day and a motorboat tour of Lake Garda could keep your adrenaline pumping after!
Italy's Lake Garda is best visited from the late spring months of May & June and during the warm summer months of July-mid September. Outside of Spring and Summer winds can pick up across the lake making outdoor celebrations difficult and rainfall can be a regular occurance.
Villa Arcadio Hotel & Resort is permitted to carry out Symbolic ceremonies only.

The following information is for guidance purposes only and will differ according to your nationality. To legally wed in Italy you will need to contact the local comune (town hall) before making any plans to find out about local marriage laws, including what documents you’ll need. You will need to get a certificate of no impediment (CNI) from the authorities in the UK to prove you’re allowed to marry. Your partner will need to follow the same process to get their own CNI. You can normally get a CNI by giving a notice of marriage at your local register office or registrar in the UK. A CNI issued in England, Wales or Northern Ireland is valid for 6 months. A CNI issued in Scotland is valid for 3 months. They’ll post your notice, and as long as nobody has registered an objection after a specified number of days (normally 15 or 21), they’ll issue your CNI.
While you’re waiting for your CNI, you and your partner will need to make a statutory declaration before a solicitor or public notary. The Italian authorities will need this in addition to your CNI.
You’ll need to get your statutory declaration and CNI ‘legalised’ (certified as genuine) by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO). You’ll also need to get your CNI translated and sworn before the Italian courts or an Italian Justice of the Peace.
The names on all documents you provide must appear exactly as they do on your passports - if not, the authorities may refuse to allow the marriage to go ahead. You may need to provide evidence if the name on your passport is different to your birth certificate (eg marriage certificate or deed poll).
You can deposit your marriage certificate at the General Register Office (GRO) in the UK for safe-keeping after your wedding - this isn’t a legal requirement. Check with the commune to see if they can issue a multilingual marriage certificate for you after the ceremony. If not, the certificate will have to be translated into English.
Please note that at the current time of writing same sex marriages are not officially recognized in Italy.
