Inspirational Italian Wedding Venues
If you are thinking about a wedding abroad and are unsure on which location to choose then you should definitely consider Italy’s beautiful Amalfi Coast! Made famous in the 1960s, this coastline was known for attracting Hollywood movie stars and few places in the world can exceed its spectacular charm with quiet bays, magnificent scenery and crystal blue seas. It really is easy to see why this setting is an increasingly popular wedding destination year on year!
We've put three of our popular wedding venues in the spotlight in three incredibly beautiful locations:
Situated on a terrace overlooking the breath-taking Amalfi coastline, Sorrento is overflowing with charm. Pavement cafés and tucked-away antique and craft shops, boutique clothes shops, bustling piazzas; together with the fresh scent of orange and lemon trees have ensured a steady stream of visitors to the town throughout the year and over the centuries. Sorrento typifies Italy’s ‘La Dolce Vita’ and many people fall in love with its sun-drenched, rustic charm, bringing them back time and time again!
Villa Antiche Mura, Sorrento:
Offering a private, exclusive setting, with the most spectacular view of Vesuvius and the bay of Naples, Villa Antiche Mura offers a wedding venue that can be customised to suit your every need! Once a private residence, the Villa opened its doors in 2003 to the public and soon became an incredibly fashionable and popular choice for either an intimate wedding of a small group of friends and family, or a gala dinner for more than 100 guests!
