Many couples have opted to get married abroad in recent years. Instead of getting married in the local town hall, couples are marrying at an unforgettable location where they can offer guests a travel experience as well as a wedding celebration. However, with increasingly more couples choosing to get married in diverse, accommodating and beautiful countries such as Italy, it’s also important to find a spectacular venue that is packed with character and personality.
A wedding venue says a lot about the couple: it speaks of their style, their budget and their party size. This is why it’s important to find one that suits your individual personalities, rather than the first one you come across in your destination/location. That’s why we’ve scoured Italy for wedding venues that are a little different. Each of them are wonderfully unique in their own right, and are perfect for destination weddings. Which one is your favourite?
