When choosing a civil ceremony for your wedding in Pordenone, a small city an hour far from Venice, you are given different venue options. La Loggia of the city hall, an ancient open gallery dated back to medieval times, is one of these alternatives.
The gothic style city hall stands in the most ancient area of Pordenone, the heart of the medieval city, close to what was once the city’s harbour connected with the Noncello river.
La Loggia is an open-sided roofed gallery, with some arches surrounding it, which stands along the front of the city hall. Local historians say that this is the place where local market, justice and charlatans performances were taking place in medieval times.
This venue is in our view the best symbol of the city, and when walking by the building at night and day it always inspires us respect and pride for being Pordenone citizens. This is the simple reason why we made the decision to have our ceremony there!
We felt the Loggia would be elegant and informal at the same time, from the mere fact it’s an open place in the city where people pass-by, and also would bring some nice class touch to the ceremony as opposed with many modern style city halls. It is also surrounded by some fantastic buildings of ancient medieval times, like Palazzo Ricchieri and the Campanile, the bell tower, which both make this corner of Pordenone even more magic and charming.
