Get Married on a Boat in Portofino with the Hotel Splendido

Hotel Splendido near Cinque Terre, Italy

As if a setting on Italy’s glamorous Ligurian Riviera wasn’t enough to dazzle wedding guests, the Hotel Splendido, an Orient-Express retreat in the hills above Portofino, can actually organize the nuptials on a yacht. Say your vows with all your loved ones onboard, while bobbing on the turquoise Mediterranean, surrounded by one of the prettiest panoramas in the world. Not far from Portofino, the Cinque Terre is a sight to behold: five lands (or villages) linked by a path that winds past terraced olive groves, beaches, and colorful houses. Gaze on the rocky seascape of the Cinque Terre while celebrating your marriage with bottles of bubbly.

The hotel is a pro at arranging the perfect “I Do.” Other memorable party idea: the bride can arrive at the ceremony on an original Vespa, decorated for the occasion, then fete the marriage with a garden party in Hotel Splendido’s flower-fragrant parkland. Not to mention the three-day pampering program for brides to be! Think make-up, manicures, and body and facial de-stressing treatments.
