Civil Weddings at the Castle Brown in Portofino

Castello Brown in Portofino  

Portofino, little fishing village on the Italian Riviera, near Genoa, is now famous because of the long list of VIP people that has visited and still visits the town. The village is surrounded by colorful houses all built one near the other, narrow little streets take to the main square where in the summer visitors enjoy a drink surrounded by this fascinating setting. Portofino has an enchanting atmosphere, the name of the village dates back to the Roman Imperial ages, when it was called "Portus Delphini”.

Venue description

In Portofino civil wedding ceremonies are performed at the Brown Castle. The name "Brown" was given to the castle recalling the owner, Montague Yeats Brown, English Consul in Genoa, from 1867 to 1949. The Consul had two pines planted on the main terrace for him and his wife for their wedding day. What a nice setting for your civil wedding ceremony. The castle features enchanting gardens and amazing terraces – your wedding reception can take place at the Castle and a nice photo session is absolutely a must and will have incredible panoramas.

We would recommend to marry in this lovely location from April to October, to be able to enjoy at the very best the beautiful natural setting that the castle offers for a wedding ceremony and a wedding reception.
