Islands always have a peculiar charm and the magic of a wedding in Elba Island is matchless. Tuscany is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful regions of Italy: it’s full of history, art, amazing views and food and wine delights. All of this makes it one of the most popular holiday destination in the world and encourages many out-of-town couples – including foreigners – to choose it as their wedding location. Of the many gems of the region Elba is one of the most precious, thanks to its beaches and its transparent waters, which reflect the glare of the sun and the moon, its villages on the hills and its rocky costs, its olive trees and vineyards and its typically Mediterranean vegetation.
Reasons to celebrate your wedding in Elba Island
There is nothing like an island. Nowhere else you can at once feel like you are far from everything and fully part of a community. Both removed and “protected”. Islands are almost places of the soul, where time and space don’t have the same meaning as elsewhere. An island is not just a physical place, it’s an experience. And Elba is no exception to this. Actually, this pearl of the Mediterranean Sea always seduces precisely thanks to its timeless dimension, with little houses climbing up the hills and the fortress and a lush nature, which includes all shades of color. Not to mention its well-known beaches, some of which can only be reached by water. Sandy shores alternate with rocky ones and all of them win you over with deep turquoise waters and wonderful sea-floors. Considering all of this, a wedding in Elba Island can be nothing but romantic and unforgettable.
Where to get married
Couples who decide to have their wedding in Elba Island can choose a religious ceremony, that will be celebrated at one of the churches in the many residential areas scattered on the territory. A wedding in Elba Island can also be non-religious. It is possible to celebrate a civil ceremony at one of the eight town halls of the island, located in Campo nell’Elba, Capoliveri, Marciana, Marciana Marina, Porto Azzurro, Portoferraio, Rio Marina and Rio nell’Elba. Moreover, if you want to surprise your friends and relatives, you shouldn’t overlook the chance to get married on one of the amazing beaches of the island. Those who are really unconventional can even emulate the couple who opted for an underwater wedding in Elba Island and was listed in the Guinness World Records.
When to get married
Our suggestion is to choose your wedding date in spring, early summer or in autumn. Those are the times of the year when you can enjoy the beauty of Elba and the good weather, protecting yourselves from the tourist overcrowding that is the rule in the most famous seaside resorts in August.
The wedding reception
There are virtually endless exclusive venues where you can hold the reception of your wedding in Elba Island. Indeed, being a very popular tourist destination, Elba has a lot of them. But this is not the only choice. You can also opt for a catering service and organize an outdoor country reception or book a villa on the coast.
