If you wish a religious wedding Maratea is the perfect location for the most important day of your life. Maratea is also well known for its 44 churches. Big churches and small chapels are found at sites with ancient religious origins. All the churches maintain outstanding works of art: from the Basilica of Saint Biagio at the top of Mount Biagio where the marble statue of Christ the Redeemer stands, to the wide and rich Rosario Church; from the Annunziata situated in the heart of the historical centre to the solemn Mother Church. If you have always dreamed of a church wedding on the Maratea coast, we can turn your dream into reality.
We will be able to advice on all the paperwork you will need to be able to marry in Italy. Destination weddings in Italy are legal in your home country. The Civil Wedding Ceremony, would be carried out at the Town Hall (Municipio) in the old historic centre of Maratea. This is mandatory under Italian law with a non Catholic church wedding if it is to be legally binding. However, the ceremony can then be repeated at any location of your choice, even on another day if you wish. The Civil Ceremony is conducted by the mayor in the Italian tradition and according to Italian law. If, for any reason, he is not available, his deputy will conduct this. You will also have two Italian witnesses and an interpreter who we are happy to arrange for you as part of the service. These would be local people including your local wedding organizer. The Civil Ceremony takes place in the mayor's office, an impressive room representing the centre of Maratea's civic establishment. The ceremony lasts approximately 10 to 15 minutes and the dress code can be smart or smart casual (as desired). Additionally we provide an Italian / English speaking personal wedding manager to oversee all aspects of your marriage, including the paperwork, who will always be on hand to help, both during the preparation and on the day itself.

Maratea is a unique place for couples who want to enjoy a spectacular coastal setting for their wedding. Situated on the Gulf of Policastro in the Tyrrhenian sea it is filled to capacity with historic buildings, churches and monuments and warm friendly people. You can enjoy the benefits of its rich local cuisine and the unspoiled atmosphere of a genuine Italian community which has not yet succumbed to the mixed blessings of mass tourism. It is the ideal venue for your dreams to come true. One of the few places in Italy where the Appenine mountains come down to meet the sea, its fertile valleys were chosen by ancient Greek settlers to found their colony. A true gem set on a blue, blue sea it has remained almost undiscovered by the global communtity ever since. It presents the opportunity of an ideal place for a romantic wedding and honeymoon with many things to do and sights to see. The pace here is slow with time to sit outside at a café table and watch the world go by. Maratea is also a vibrantly creative town represented by frequent exhibitions of artistic ingenuity. The 30 kilometers of coastline in which Maratea is set is full of creeks and inlets, beaches and caves with sweetly scented pine trees descending to the sea. Not far away to the east is a National Park where the natural world goes hand in hand with local agriculture, which carries on as it has done for centuries. There is always a warm welcome there for foreign visitors. It is a place just waiting to be discovered by those planning a wedding with a difference.
Thank you Gabriella and Ilaria! Thinking of marrying abroad, you imagine it will be stressful and difficult to arrange. With Maratea Weddings and Mondo Maratea, this couldn’t be further from the truth. From our initial enquiry through to the day itself, Gabriella and Ilaria responded to our requests quickly and professionally. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel as if we were their main priority. When we decided to marry, we both felt we wanted to elope somewhere romantic and friendly, in a way that was intimate and special. Maratea did not disappoint! Perched on a hillside between spectacular, verdant mountains and the almost deserted rocky coast with turquoise sea, the Old Town’s little streets and steps seemed magical. For us, it was also the perfect balance of being hidden away from the tourists, but with plenty of shops, restaurants and cafes to explore. We really felt welcomed there too. The people of Maratea are wonderfully warm and friendly. On the evening before, we were even greeted with “Domani sposato?” (Is it you marrying tomorrow?) by staff in one of the restaurants. Then on the day, as we walked to the Municipio we waved at Stella (who made the beautiful bouquet) and were met by Luigi (the photographer). Amongst this, locals in cars beeped their horns, waved and it seemed as if there was an almost constant chorus of “Congratulazioni!” and “Buono fortuna!”. Thank you and we look forward to returning for our anniversary!
Gabrielle & Hugh
Maratea and the Maratea coastline was the most perfect setting for our wedding, offering breathtaking views, dramatic landscape and a quintessentially Italian historic town to keep all our guests happily amused. Gabriella and Ilaria did an exceptional job of organising every single detail of our wedding, from all of our guest accommodation right through to the exact order of the events on the wedding day. They both catered to our many demands and responded cheerfully even when we changed our minds and then changed them back again. We were highly impressed with their attention to detail, they even picked up on things we had missed and made sure every detail of our wedding day was organised to perfection. Once in Maratea they made themselves completely at our disposal, even going above and beyond the call of duty by collecting Bec (the bride) from our hotel and returning her again just she could have a run-through with the hairdresser. We selected the Santavenere as our wedding venue and it truly provided the five star experience only a luxury hotel can. The food and the staff at the Santavenere were both outstanding, not to mention the beautiful grounds and private setting. Our wedding in Maratea went above and beyond our expectations and we have very fond memories that we will cherish forever. Happy newly-weds.”

Dear Gabriella & Ilaria, We just wanted to thank you for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. You gave us and our families a day to cherish for the rest of our lives. We knew from the day we decided to do a destination wedding, that a lot of work would be involved. You both made planning a wedding effortless and stress free. Every step of the planning process you answered our questions and our concerns so quickly, it felt as if you both were here talking to us face to face. Every request we made for our wedding, even last minute things, you handled without any worries. The flowers were spectacular and were an exact replica of a picture I had sent you. The Church, Priest and choir were picture perfect. The food was amazing - our guests are still talking about the food! And The Santavenere was the perfect venue with its luxurious and breathtaking grounds. The staff were so friendly and entertaining. We were so warmly welcomed by everyone in Maratea, it really felt like we were family. We really appreciate you taking us to the venues and a tour around town the day before. It helped ease any worries we had about making such big decisions without ever having been to Maratea. Our photographer, Kristen as well as us are forever grateful for you personally taking us to the town square for pictures after the ceremony. We have pictures that we never would have gotten had you not made time for us to do so. We will definitely come back to Maratea in the near future! We cannot even begin to express how grateful we are for giving us the wedding people dream of. It really was better than a fairytale. We highly recommend Maratea Weddings for all of your wedding day needs! Thank you so much

Aysha and I had a truly unforgettable day which was just perfect. Everything worked like clockwork which would not have been possible without the diligent assistance from both Gabriella and Ilaria. Fantastic - the best day of our lives!
Aysha & Grant
We decided to get married in Maratea after a visit to that lovely town last year. In search for help arranging this we came across Maratea Wedding. During the hole process they have never been more than an e-mail away helping us and guiding us through. Thanx for making our dream come true.
Filip & Lina
We feel that Ilaria and Gabriella provided us with a first class and professional wedding service,it was truly a day to remember. The planning of the wedding was stress free due to their hard work and friendly service. The area of Maratea with its beauty and its romance and friendly people it is a must for any couple looking to get married in italy. We both will never forget our time here in Maratea. Many thanks to Ilaria and Gabriella.
Love Scott and Elisa
Riana and I knew from the start that our wedding had to be something very special. We both agreed that it should be in Italy and so the search for a small, intimate church started. Riana surfed the internet relentlessly, and she was astounded at how many automated replies she received from wedding planners in Europe (...)
Piet and Riana
We used Gabriella and MondoMaratea Wedding Services to plan our wedding in Maratea in June 2010. They were really helpful throughout the process, taking time to show us the venue, and taking us to meet local photographers, florist and hairdresser. Unfortunately there was a landslide that occurred a couple of months before the wedding, which meant that the villa was unable to be used. Gabriella was great - and had organised us a back up venue, before we even heard about the landslide, which helped reduce stress levels significantly. The backup venue - Hotel Santavenere - was beautiful! The day turned out perfectly, the photos capture the mood and the day, the food was great and the setting was stunning. All our guests commented on what a beautiful spot Santavenere & Maratea is, and they really appreciated the help from MondoMaratea with their hotel and travel arrangements. We would warmly recommend using MondoMaratea to plan your wedding or your trip to Maratea!

Italy feels like a second home to Mark & me, which is why we chose to marry there. Planning a destination wedding can be very stressful, but Maratea weddings was the best thing that could have ever happened to us. We chose Maratea for its beautiful coastlines and undiscovered territory. Gabriella & Ilaria were there for us for every step of our journey. Living in the United States made it very difficult for us to do our own wedding planning and we would have never have completed all the necessary paperwork correctly without their help. They made everything feel so effortless and stress free. They answered all of our questions and concerns promptly. Gabriella and Ilaria were very organized and professional. From the wedding venue, to the rehearsal dinner, menus, flowers, hairstylists, photographer, and even train schedules, the list is endless and they do it al! They made our wedding day unforgetable! We plan to return to the beautiful and quaint town of Maratea in the years to come.
Mark & Tricia
Gabriella and Ilaria will be constantly on hand to ensure that everything runs smoothly
We will ensure we offer venues and suppliers that reflect the type of celebration you require and within your budget. Once the venue is secured we will together fill in the details: from the ceremony and reception design, flowers, stationery, food and photography, to your wedding day attire, entertainment, the cake, transport and the honeymoon.
