One of our favourite wedding venues in Italy, Villa le Capanne is an idyllic setting to tie the knot. It also happens to be owned by a family who, first and foremost, own a catering company. In fact, the inspiration to purchase the property was to provide them with a venue where they could serve up their incredible wedding feasts so, opt for this villa for your celebrations and you can be assured that your guests will be in for a treat when it comes to the food! With stunning views over the surrounding countryside, it also provides the perfect back drop for your wedding photos.
For a much more intimate wedding venue in Italy, take a look at Caidominici 8 in Umbria. This 8 bedroom villa provides the perfect backdrop for a smaller wedding celebration. Outside, the grounds are immaculately presented and offer plenty of distractions to keep little ones entertained whilst the grown ups celebrate!
Antica Dimora is a stunning wedding venue in Tuscany, situated close to Anghiari. For those keen to enjoy a religious ceremony, just 600 metres from the villa is a delightful old stone church which can seat up to 50 guests but there are plenty of other churches within a kilometre radius if you’re intending a much larger event. The exterior space at the villa provides the capacity for up to 200 guests however it’s also possible to hold more intimate celebrations inside if you’re tying the knot in the cooler Winter months.
Whilst many Brits tying the knot in Italy may think first of wedding venues in Tuscany, in the Italian Lakes or on the Amalfi Coast, Puglia is an up and coming choice to find your Italian wedding venue. Corte dei Messapi is a stunning villa in Puglia. Made of limestone, the neutral interior with its focus on local, natural materials, provides a blank canvas from which to create a stylish and upmarket event. On a practical note, with the accommodation split into 4 separate buildings, it’s also a great option to allow the bride and groom to get ready without having to worry about being seen by each other! And for those who will be having children at the event, there is even a play area within the grounds to keep them entertained!
Originally a hunting lodge, Villa le Volpe is now a beautifully restored Tuscan villa, providing the perfect for a wedding venue in Tuscany. A large terrace in front of the house can be furnished with tables and chairs for an al fresco wedding breakfast and, as it always seems to attract a gentle afternoon breeze, it’s a lovely spot even on the hottest of Summer days. Surrounded by the beautiful Lucca countryside, the owners have a wealth of experience in creating the most magical weddings for their clients, so you’ll be in very safe hands if you choose Villa le Volpe for your wedding in Tuscany.
