An Exclusive Venetian Wedding Venue
For the ultimate exclusivity for your special event, the beautiful Hotel Cipriani offers a five-star experience for your guests. Situated on the Island of Giudecca across the lagoon from Piazza San Marco, Hotel Cipriani is one of the most expensive hotels in the world and only accessible by boat. This kind of calm and seclusion is usually unheard of in a European city - the combination of utmost exclusivity and privacy in the city of love is a must have if you are keen to avoid the public eye.
Plan a Wedding in Italy Your Guests Will Never Forget
The Belmond Hotel Cipriani offers excellent dining options for your guests. Oro restaurant boasts a Michelin star and is ran by chef Davide Bisetto. Cips Club is perfect for an informal dining experience and offers an incredible view of the lagoon. There is also a poolside restaurant open in the autumn and the Gabbiano bar offers plenty of choice. Luxury boutiques are plenty in the hotel for guests looking to shop.
Luxury weddings and parties at Hotel Cipriani are out of this world; you’ll have your choice from a number of event spaces available. Should you take exclusive hire of the entire hotel then it’s yours to do as you please.
Two large adjacent brick like rooms called ‘The Granaries’ and now officially the ‘Longhi Ballroom’, were formerly used to store merchandise from across the world. Now, they are spectacularly refurbished to their original Venetian architecture albeit with beautiful Murano glass chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. If your guest numbers total 150 or more, then this is definitely the right space for you. The Longhi Ballroom can be configured to a wide variety of specifications including round tables for a wedding dinner or long tables for a banquet.
Discover a Magical Part of Venice
The Fondamenta terrace sits immediately outside of The Granaries and is perfect for drinks receptions with a view. The terrace has a private entrance away from the hotel complex, and guests can get to this room via a private boat. The terrace has the most amazing views of the lagoon and looks idyllic during sunset. Definitely a firm favourite for a reception, imagine sipping champagne from a crystal flute as you watch the sky melt into the water. Add poseur tables with beautifully draped brocade linen and soft lighting for a stunning setting before heading into the Granaries.
Adjoining the famous ‘Casanova Gardens’, The Antique Garden and terrace offer panoramic views of the beautiful Venetian lagoon with plenty of sunshine guaranteed. The location would be the perfect space for a wedding lunch or dinner with the cool breeze blowing gently from the east. A great option for a meal after a tour of the lagoon on a yacht.
For a ‘hotel within a hotel’ experience, Hotel Cipriani also has a secret suite and complex which is available to hire exclusively and has a number of rooms which can be used as accommodation or for a private event.
