  • Italy

Italy as a location for destination weddings has been a consistent hit with couples from the UK and more globally. Time and time again it has topped the list for being the perfect location for those wanting to get married overseas. As many are aware, however, organising a destination wedding is logistically more difficult to plan than a wedding at home. For this reason, researching and organising as much as you can before leaving your home country is crucial, and this is where Zankyou fits in!

For the perfect venue:

Grand Hotel Portovenere


For a splendid trip to Italy, booking into the right venue is necessary. Portovenere and the Gulf of Poets offer a dream wedding venue near the Cinque Terre in the Italian Riviera. Here the vegetation and the bright turquoise waters on Palmaria Island are the backdrop to the unique and sophisticated style of Grand Hotel Portovenere.
