This Palace is a design hotel. A suggestive and romantic residence where comfort, luxury and elegance complete the image of a splendid reality overlooking the Canal Grande through a rose garden. It is the quintessential expression of 18th century Venetian style and modern design that blend with refined oriental antique influences. Besides the furniture in Venetian style, there is a selection of design pieces, objects with oriental fascination, marble ornaments and lovely upholstery signed by Rubelli and Bevilacqua. For those that arrive by boat there is the exclusive cavana (a covered shelter for the boat, typical of the noble venetian palazzi). The Ambassador’s Palace, with the beauty of its frescoed rooms, the noble floor, its two flowering gardens, intimate and full of atmosphere, is the ideal location for a fairy-tale wedding.

Why you should choose this place to get married
This venue is one of the few venues in Venice which has a garden, not only that but the garden looks out directly onto the famous Grand Canal. This venue is particularly beautiful as many elements of the Venetian palace remain such as the internal décor with its mother of pearl designs in the elaborate dining room. This venue is only 15 minutes away by boat to the town hall making it easily accessible to small or large groups. Whether couples are eloping here or have a large wedding party this venue offers many ‘areas’ in which to celebrate various elements of the wedding day. This location is a four star hotel therefore it has accommodation. The family that own this building also have another hotel adjacent which is 3 star
This location has internal catering therefore a separate hire fee is not required
Maximum up to 80 people for the wedding reception
Perfect for small groups looking for a spectacular Venetian Palace without the feeling of ‘getting lost’ as there are also small rooms for up to 40 people
Fantastic location overlooking the Grand Canal
Taxi boats need to be organized to transport guests from the Palace to the town hall and back
As in all buildings in Venice dancing is not permitted on the ‘noble floor’ (the first floor) but there are other rooms available for ‘light entertainment’.

Services BWA can offer
Bestweddingaway can organise gondola rides to and/or from the town hall for the wedding couple or even taxi boats for the couple and their guests. Take a min-tour of Venice and stop off for photo opportunities on the way such as the Rialto Bridge, St Mark’s Square and the bridge of Sighs. For the welcome cocktail party or even for the wedding itself why not get dressed up in original Venetian costume in the same way as the locals do during carnival. Masked balls and detailed costumes will take your guests back in time to when Venice was the famous trade and cultural city of Mediterranean Europe.
