Celebrate Under the Stars: Top 3 Venues for an Alfresco Wedding in Italy

There are many reasons to have a destination wedding in Italy, but the country’s dreamy climate is one of the main ones. Having the security of good weather (not too hot, too dry, too wet or too cold) takes a lot of stress away from the lead up to the big day, and makes for incredible photos. Everyone is happier with a bit of sun, an evening breeze, and incredible outdoor views, right?

With this in mind, we’ve selected the top three wedding venues with terraces or gardens that make for the most spectacular alfresco celebration and ceremony. With panoramic views of beautiful Italy and the chance to party with your loved ones under the stars, your destination wedding really will be unforgettable for everyone involved.

1. Tenuta Re Ferdinando

This luxury estate has a charming garden and poolside terrace, nestled in a landscape of citrus groves, olive groves and natural springs. Located in Caserta, just 30 minutes from Naples, Tenuta Re Ferdinando is a tranquil harmony that blends its natural landscape with contemporary architecture and modern luxuries. The gardens here flourish with the typical flora and fauna of the Mediterranean, coupled with a serene pool and enchanting fountain that reflect the twinkling lights of the venue.

In the green of the San Prisco archaeological park, this hotel venue is spread over 1 million square meters, offering four soccer fields and tennis courts as well as a golf driving range, so your guests can indulge in a truly fun-filled trip. The chefs here will work with you to design a delicious menu to your taste, with seasonal and local ingredients, while their wedding and event planning service will work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure your destination wedding dreams come true.

2. Villa Pocci

On the glistening Lake Albano, just outside of Rome, Villa Pocci is an oasis of beauty and charm in the heart of the Castelli Romani regional park. Lakeside luxury at its finest, the large terrace at Villa Pocci can host up to 200 guests, surrounded by panoramic views.

Couples from all over the world dream of marrying here, and its not hard to see why. The estate has a park of 15,000 meters, inhabited by vibrant plants and offering two romantic swimming pools. The villa’s interior consists of elegant ballrooms and antique furnishings, capable of hosting up to 200 guests. But the real attraction, as we’ve said, is the incredible view, and this could be the backdrop to your alfresco vows and reception.

3. Baglio Regia Corte

In the beautiful location of Palermo, you’ll love Baglio Regia Corte, a breathtaking nineteenth century structure with a courtyard that’s simple perfect for your alfresco wedding. This is the ideal setting for a rustic-chic/ country elegance wedding theme, since the venue is completely immersed in the enchanting countryside, surrounded by hay, wildflowers and woods.

This venue also has a poolside space for your evening celebrations, meaning you can choose between two incredibly romantic outdoor spaces, or even have one spot for your ceremony and the other for the reception! There is also a lovely Winter Garden for cooler months, an indoor dinner venue that is made of glass so as not to loose the impressive beauty of the outside views.
