Armenian weddings in Venice are celebrated on the Saint Lazarus island (isola di San Lazzaro), one of the worldwide most important religious place for the Armenian religion, a small island 10mn away from San Marco square and shorter distance from Lido, where a small religious Armenian community still lives.
Once you cross the entrance of the old monastery (mother-house of the Mekhitarist order), you will be amazed by the beauty of the cloister and the garden, a sense of peace and spirituality you are literally surrounded by. The small intimate church with its direct access on the cloister so to preserve your intimacy is simply magnificent with its blue and gold painted ceiling! A unique and breathless atmosphere for your Armenian ceremony.
Couples need to be legally married before the ceremony.
