Gardone Church - the traditional style

Situated not far from the lakeside of Gardone is the Lutheran Church. This utterly charming church offers the possibility to have a symbolic church ceremony in very traditional surroundings. With stained glass windows and wooden pews the atmosphere is one of cool calm, perhaps the perfect antidote to the emotions of the day and the warm Italian climate. The church can seat around 150 guests so is perfectly suited to larger wedding parties but at the same time it has an intimacy about it that will suit smaller, more private parties.

As the ceremony can only be symbolic (only a Roman Catholic church wedding is legally recognised here in Italy) the couple will have to have a civil ceremony either in the UK before their arrival in Italy or otherwise in the nearby Gardone town hall. It is also possible to celebrate a blessing here in this church for couples who perhaps wish to re-new their vows for a special anniversary.


Gardone is on the western shores on Lake Garda, a 40 minute drive from the A4 motorway which conveniently leads directly to Bergamo and Verona airports in an hour and the Milan airports (Linate and Malpensa) in 1h50mins. The airport at Montichiari (Verona/Brescia) is only 50 minutes from the resort. For more information go to Travel.

As well as Gardone itself the local town of Salò is also within close proximity (10 mins) and so between them there is a wide range of accommodation on offer that can suit all tastes and budgets. For more information go to Accommodation.
