How can we Help?
We are fast approaching that “Love Actually” time of year…once this film hits the screens we know we are heading to that special moment in the year that belongs to those who are thinking of proposing or are about to make plans for their wedding.
We think of it as the 5th season – the Romance Season! It begins about now, in the winter weeks leading up to Christmas and the New Year and then continues towards the eagerly-awaited Spring, with Valentine’s Day and Easter.
These are, traditionally, popular proposal moments and, for us, it’s the perfect time to think about how, when and where – in Italy – to ask that all important question or to say “I Do”.
We have been organising special events and weddings in Italy for many years and we think we have the best job in the world – we help couples to take the next step in their relationship, so, to help all of you who are about to do just that (and because at Christmas time everyone loves making a list) we have swapped our Christmas present wish-list for a love-list of Italy proposal and wedding locations which we hope will inspire you during these important months of the wedding calendar year. Not only are they sizzling summer wedding locations over the Christmas and New Year period they become romantic getaways perfect proposal places!
Typically, the Sorrento Peninsula and Amalfi Coast are considered seasonal – Summer – locations for a wedding… however now is the perfect time to think about about these well-known destinations and swap sunshine for some Christmas sparkle or a little Spring time delight! You will find the traditional, and the not so traditional, the well-known, and some hidden gems – all inspired to meet the ever-increasing demand for tailored wedding options.
These charming coastal towns do Christmas in style – almost all will have a full schedule of Christmas festivities and events. All you need do is pick a location, seasonal decoration in place – the only additional sparkle you will need to bring is going to be in the little box!
Christmas and New Year in Italy is a magical time – everything that can be trimmed with fairy lights will be – Santa may be persuaded to relocate! If you love Christmas, then why not book your tickets for the Amalfi Coast out-of-season? The skies will likely still be blue and the crisp coastal air is perfect for seeking out the cosy corners and a romantic table for two.Piazza Tasso, Sorrento’s bustling town square, is transformed into the most spectacular Christmas grotto – the twinkling lights – and there are many – could be the perfect setting for a winter proposal. Create your own magic, beneath Sorrento’s shimmering Christmas tree, surrounded by happy revellers. Or for a more intimate and extra-special ambience, opt for one of the luxury hotels – a suite with heavenly seaview balcony some candlelight, a bit of bubbly and a little moonlight.
We have put together a mini photo montage for each of our locations if you see something you like then please get in touch you’ll find our email after you have visited the lst location.
