Faenza is the perfect marriage location for couples wanting to celebrate an affordable wedding in Italy, but maintain the finest surroundings and standards. Couples come to Faenza to celebrate an elegant and truly royal wedding ceremony at budget prices. This small jewel of a town is enclosed by majestic medieval walls and is world-renown for its beautiful ceramics. Faentine potters rose to fame during the Middle Ages and reached their apex during the Renaissance. This is where the manufacture of majolica was perfected and to this day it is possible to visit many noteworthy collections and present-day showrooms offering magnificent selections of ceramics and “faience”.

The Faentines are very proud of their beautiful palazzo where your destination civil wedding can be held. It rises on the main piazza and its exterior is decorated with Renaissance ceramic plaques, as are many of the house numbers and street signs.

The first and larger option is also known as the Red Hall and holds up to 100. Its interiors are exceptional, dating back from the Renaissance with gilding, silk furnishings, antiques and stunning chandelier. There is a second and smaller hall known as the Green Hall and it is decorated with golds and greens holding up to 60 guests.

Receptions in Emilia Romagna will reflect the exceptional cuisine and wines of the region; considered by many Italians to be the best in the country.

Very nearby you can explore the famous Adriatic coast and the resort town of Rimini, the spa town of Brisighella and the world famous city of Ravenna, noted for its superb Byzantine mosaics.
