Suggestive Churches and Intimate Chapels for your religious wedding ceremony in Lake Como
Either you are considering a Catholic ceremony or a Protestant blessing you will not be disappointed with the plenty of evocative churches and countryside chapels available in this stunning region of Italy.
Catholic weddings in Italy are legally binding and as the leading wedding planner in Lake Como, we will be delighted to assist you with the necessary paperwork.
The Anglican Church (a.k.a. Church of England), instead, is not authorized to perform legal marriage ceremonies. However, couples are welcome to have their civil marriages blessed in the church.
One of the most popular Catholic churches available in the region is located in Varenna, an attractive lakeside village with picturesque lanes and old fishermen's houses. Its main square is dominated by the majestic bell tower of the exquisite San Giorgio Church with a sober Medieval architecture. Impressive interiors with cylindrical pillars and sharped arches and an impressive historic pipe organ that perfectly suits the acoustic of the venue.
The enchanting hillside Church of Sant'Abbondio dates back to the 1600s. Its original Baroque façade, period furnishings, and beautifully crafted marble altar. We particularly love the plenty of sunlight inside the Church and the breathtaking view just outside the gate.
Protestant blessings can take place at the Church of Ascension in Cadenabbia. It was the first Anglican Church to be built in Italy, due to the popularity of Lake Como with British people who settled here. The stained glass windows in the nave and the gold mosaic in the apse are truly impressive. The temple is located right opposite the Cadenabbia ferry landing station.
