The Marriage of Art, History and Nature: Getting Married in Umbria

For couple who are looking for a unique wedding, getting married in Umbria is an experience they will never forget.
From the center of the broad and deep valley is an isolated hill, similar to a truncated cone; in the center of the scene there was the vast expanse of city emerging from the large fortress, surrounded by cliffs, and in the backdrop, the mountains that loom between the vapor and clouds, but not losing their height and sublimity.”

Oliver George Dennis (1842)

The ancient city of Orvieto was born on a plateau of volcanic rock, which makes the area rich in caves, wells, and man-made tunnels.


The undisputed star is the Cathedral of Orvieto. Gothic and monumental, with its gilded stucco and work of such great artists as Arnolfo di Cambio and Luca Signorelli, for the Brizio chapel. It is a place steeped in art and history, perfect for a refined wedding in Umbria.
Narni, in which sleeps, in Santo Giovenale,
the ark of Senator Pietro Cesi,
so you sleep on your craggy boulders
around your municipal palace.

So Gabriele d’Annunzio speaks of Narni, a city of Terni, erected on a 260 meter hill. The city boasts of being one of the most beautiful in all of Umbria. The medieval towers and battlements are a beautiful jewel of the region, but the thing that makes this place famous and mystical is the Speco of San Francesco, one of the most important Franciscan sanctuaries in the world. It is a destination to many people, not only pilgrims.
Couples may choose to be married in this chapel. Carved in an alcove, it is the best known place of meditation of Saint Francesco by the faithful of the world. This is a setting that can only be provided by Umbria: the perfect combination of the nature and love of God that was the inspiration for the saint throughout his humble life. The surrounding lawn is dominated by an ancient chestnut tree, which, with its grandeur, will make the perfect backdrop for photographs after the “I do.”
Meanwhile, dark clouds rolled
on the Apennines: grand, austere, verdant
flowing down from the mountains in a circle
the Umbria looks

img_love_2To be married in Umbria is to choose to be surrounded by the beauty of nature in all its forms. And thus, the Green Umbria was described by Carducci in these verses. Because of the inestimable value of its natural heritage, Umbria is a dream come true for couples that are married here in the green heights of Terni. Afterwards, declare your love admiring the spectacular leap of the Marmore Falls, inside the archaeological site of Carsulae, or the city of Piediluco.
