Your Perfect Swiss Destination Wedding in Ticino

Your host region: Ticino

The Italian flair of Switzerland. The Mediterranean region seems to begin on the southern side of the Alps. There is a feel of Italy, with palm trees at clean beaches and lanes and alleyways leading to piazzas and churches. But the Alps are always close by. Mountain tours that start in snow, ice and rock, end in balmy chestnut forests. Gentian blooming on Alpine pastures and wooded hills rising to high peaks on the shores of Ticino's lakes contrast with rich camellia on lakeshore promenades.

Your host city: Ascona Locarno

Ascona is Switzerland's lowest lying town and is famous for its mild climate, its Old Town and a lake promenade which is dotted with street cafés and boasts a Latin ambience.

Locarno: 2,300 hours of sunshine per year and a church established after an appearance of the Virgin Mary. The town with the warmest climate in Switzerland.

Welcome reception: Giardino Lago

In fact, it isn’t really a hotel at all. It is more of a palazzo – at the same time, Giardino Lago is likely the most charming restaurant with rooms overlooking Lago Maggiore. A spacious outdoor terrace, the stunningly beautiful Roof Lounge or the modern restaurant are perfect to celebrate and relax in contemporary style.
