The 10 best spots for wedding photos in Rome

An amazing wedding photoshoot might be one of the reasons why you have decided to get married in Rome. There’s no denying the Eternal City offers plenty of unique backdrops for some stunning wedding pictures. So apart from the ceremony venue and reception location where your wedding will take place, here are my top spots for taking unforgettable wedding pictures if you are getting married in Rome..

1. Villa Borghese park and Pincio

Villa Borghese is the largest park in Rome, offering various different spots for amazing wedding pictures, if you are a fan of a more countrystyle photoshoot and prefer secluded places. Stroll around its small paths, reach the lovely lake and finally take a few shots at the Pincio terrace with lovely views of the city.

2. Spanish Steps

You can’t miss this spot, especially if you are getting married in Rome in April or May when you’ll find a colourful flowers display on the famous stairs: the perfect backdrop for some stunning wedding pictures. Expect plenty of people here as well, who’ll probably ask you to have a picture taken with them like you were some famous stars. Yes! Apparently, this often happens in Rome when tourists see a couple of newlyweds walking down the streets for their wedding photoshoot. Don’t be shy and say yes!

3. Castel S. Angelo

One of my favourite monuments in Rome, the Saint Angel Castle is situated along the river Tiber and near the Vatican City. Walk the small pedestrian cobblestoned bridge crossing the river in front of it and get some beautiful wedding pictures with the Castle in the background.


4. St. Peter’s Basilica and the Colonnade

The Colonnade in St. Peter’s square is just spectacular. I love it also because it will most certainly put a smile on your face if the weather is not so nice. You’ll find plenty of covered space: the perfect spot for wedding pictures when it’s raining. Walk through the columns first for some romantic shots and then along the main street, Via della Conciliazione, for pictures with St. Peter’s Basilica in the distance.


5. Trevi Fountain

Throwing a coin into Trevi Fountain is many a wedding couple’s dream. Go ahead and don’t be scared of the crowd, they’ll surely make room for you, But remember no car can drive right up to the fountain, so be prepared to do just a bit of walking to get there. It’ll definitely be worth the short stroll through, and hey…don’t forget to bring a coin with you!

6. Campidoglio

Even if you’re not getting married at the Campidoglio, you can dare walk up the long stairs taking you to the Campidoglio square. From here, you’ll find a variety of different backgrounds for some amazing wedding pictures: the Roman Forum with the Colosseum in the distance, a lovely garden with views over the rooftops of Rome and the White Monument, and a lovely colonnade, just perfect in case of bad weather.

7. Colosseum

The Colosseum, with the Arch of Constantine nearby, is the place to go if you want to take pictures at possibly the most representative landmark of Rome. it is indeed a busy place, but a good wedding photographer, especially if locally based, will lead you to the best spots where he could take gorgeous photos with the Colosseum in the background and no people around. Yes, hard to believe, but that’s exactly what I’ve said: no people around!

8. Giardino degli Aranci

The Oranges Garden is just the right spot if you are getting married in Rome, but prefer a green garden surrounding you rather than the most iconic landmarks. You can stroll around the garden and reach the beautiful terrace which will offer you amazing views of Rome.!

9. Pantheon

Probably one of the most famous landmarks in Rome, the Pantheon is situated in a lovely square full of cafés and ice cream parlours, so why don’t you get a gelato and go for some fun, unusual wedding photos? The Pantheon also offers a refuge in case bad weather, so it’s definitely one of the places to remember if you need a back-up plan for your wedding photoshoot.

10. Piazza Navona

Last but not least, Piazza Navona is probably the most famous square in Rome. You’ll often find something going on there, such as musicians, caricaturists, acrobats, so be prepared for some fun wedding pictures.
