by Specialo on September 7, 2017

Planning a wedding can be tricky. Every decision made opens up 10 other questions you need to answer before you can move forward. One of the biggest decisions is where to hold your wedding – somewhere fun, fresh, and inviting?

You could be forgiven for first looking towards your local community for ideas, but why limit yourself to a town hall and a church? We believe that the beautiful region of Bologna has everything you need and more for your perfect wedding weekend.

Lovely Sunny Weather

The first very good reason is that the beautiful area of Bologna has some of the best weather in all of Northern Italy. On average, Bologna receives over 8 hours of sunshine a day from May to September. No grey British weather with threats of rain to spoil photo shoots, hair dos or wedding outfits.

Average temperatures in Bologna between May and September also range from 17°C to 24°C, allowing for outdoor ceremonies framed by spectacular views and al-fresco celebrations that can last long into the evening.

Exceptional Views & Atmosphere

The countryside surrounding Bologna is an enticing mix of roaming mountains, beautiful vineyards, and ancient castles. The air itself is filled with a richness that is made up of smiling faces and the smells of traditional Italy. When you stop to drink in our surroundings, you will be amazed by the sights that greet you. The rustic architecture, cobbled streets and clay roofs of the tiny villages peppered throughout gorgeous hills and valleys will make you feel live you’ve travelled back in time to a romantic bygone era. The perfect backdrop to any wedding.

Easy Access From Popular UK Airports

Transporting wedding guests to and from any wedding can turn into a logistical nightmare. In comparison, getting your whole wedding party to and from Bologna is easy. There are eight flights a day from the UK, flying from airports that include Heathrow, Gatwick, Stanstead, Manchester, and Dublin.

Local vineyard open their doors to visitors, proud to show off some of Italy’s finest wines. The city of Bologna is a must for foodies, whilst a short drive or train journey can take you to romantic Venice, historic Rome, cultural Florence and so many more.
