Getting married in Ticino - with a touch of Italianità

The Sonnenstube of Switzerland is predestined for dreamlike wedding celebrations – not only because of the beautiful landscapes and the weather. No sooner have you left the Gotthard tunnel behind you than you are greeted by a Switzerland of a different kind. Palm trees and charming alpine valleys with their traditional granite houses, blue lakes on which pretty ships glide, and in the larger towns, interesting boulevards with colorful house fronts invite you to stroll. 

On the Brissago Islands in Lake Maggiore, the bridal couple can enjoy the unique setting of the Botanical Garden, which provides a magnificent backdrop for a wedding reception. Getting married amidst exotic flowers and plants such as lotus, bamboo and palm trees must be a delightful experience for every couple. In the enchanting garden there are various possibilities to arrange the celebration or an aperitif. Furthermore, the Roman Bath can be rented exclusively for wedding ceremonies. Those who want to get married outdoors can also choose to lawn under the mighty eucalyptus trees, or anywhere else in the Botanical Garden. A civil wedding ceremony can be organized in Villa Emden, upon request and in collaboration with the Municipality of Brissago. The restaurant of the Brissago Islands provides for the physical well-being. Villa Emden is also available for overnight stays in 9 rooms and a wedding suite. 

On the Monte Verit√† above Ascona, with a beautiful park and view of the lake, there are also various rooms with restaurant available for celebrations and weddings. In the Castello, 200 m above the village of Morcote, you can celebrate in medieval style. It is a fortress that has been preserved to the Sottoceneri from ancient times. The location – exclusive and unique – consists of an elegant 200 m2 panoramic tent with teak floor and breathtaking views. Until the end of October, weddings for up to 160 people can be held here in absolute privacy. 

For fairy-tale celebrations the castle Castelgrande near Bellinzona is also a good place to visit. 

Also the beautiful Parco Scherrer in the municipality of Morcote on the Lago di Lugano is a wonderful place for your most beautiful day. The park with the paradisiacal gardens, fountains, columns, the enchanting Temple of the Sun, the Thai tea house or the Arabic house and pavilions invites you to linger. In collaboration with the Municipality of Morcote, your civil wedding ceremony can take place directly in Parco Scherrer. All this can take place in a wonderful setting with a fantastic view of Lake Lugano. In addition to all these atmospheric locations, Ticino and the neighbouring regions in Italy have numerous hotels that are suitable for extraordinary wedding celebrations in a southern ambience. In addition count not only the many luxury hotels and impressively beautiful villas, but also the multiplicity of smaller maintained restaurants.
