Religious ceremony

Portofino – S. Margherita Ligure – Rapallo

A wedding ceremony is a moving affair, the moment that symbolises the start of your journey together as a couple. This is why it is important that you choose the right place and type of ceremony for you.


Church of San Giorgio

On the very top of the headland which dominates on one side the wonderful cliffs that lead to San Fruttuoso, and on the other the striking town of Portofino, the Church of San Giorgio is perfect for a uniquely panoramic wedding.

Church of San Martino

Church of San Lorenzo
Santa Margherita Ligure

The Church of San Lorenzo the Martyr is in the village of San Lorenzo della Costa in Santa Margherita Ligure. The church is made unique by the hilly area in which it stands, along a rocky spur surrounded by typical olive groves on characteristic Ligurian terraces.
