We tailor all our wedding packages to suit our clients, and can research and scout venues according to what you're looking for.
Puglia has so many beautiful venues to offer and we don't like to start out by setting limitations. Below, you'll find some examples of the different types of wedding venues we work with in Puglia, to give you a sense of the kind of wedding celebration we can create for you.
These stone roofs have become an iconic symbol of Puglia and make for a wedding celebration right out of a storybook. Found in the Itria valley (concentrated around the towns of Alberobello and Locorotondo), venues with trulli houses create such a unique setting that you can't find anywhere else in the world. They are often clustered together around a central courtyard, where we can set up ambient dinners under twinkling lights. Historically, trulli were used to house farm labourers and animals, so you'll often see them clustered together in tiny villages as part of a larger estate. They also make cozy retreats for you and your guests to stay in.
A masseria is a traditional Apulian farmhouse, usually set on acres of land with olive trees, vineyards and citrus groves. The chic, whitewashed exterior and minimalist architecture make them a beautiful blank canvas for whatever you would like your wedding day to be. They also offer varying backdrops for different parts of the celebration, allowing you and your guests to move around and creating a relaxed atmosphere. They are typically rented exclusively with accommodation and appeal to couples who would like to stay together with their guests and prolong the celebrations over a few days. Many of the venues we work with also have a licence to perform civil wedding ceremonies on-site too.
Whether it's an intimate cliffside dinner in the centre of Polignano a Mare, or a relaxed beach party on the white sands of the Salento coast, we have lots of options for couples who want to breathe that fresh sea breeze on their wedding day. The calming turquoise waters of the Adriatic sets the tone and keeps everyone in the right frame of mind. Our position in the heel of Italy's boot blesses us with a longer Summer than the rest of Italy and outdoor weddings are very common here from April through October. Ask us about these venues if you want a wedding that feels like a vacation too!
For elopements and micro weddings, it often makes sense to book a table at a fantastic local restaurant and enjoy the atmosphere that surrounds you. For these kind of events, we have an insider's knowledge to give you lots of recommendations and suggestions to make sure your day still feels extra special. We work with only the best local chefs and restauranteurs to offer our clients and their guests a true taste of Puglia. Farm-to-table (or sea-to-table) methods are inherent to the Apulian way of life and this is never more apparent than in their approach to celebrations around the dinner table.
For the ultimate in privacy and exclusivity, you might want to consider the option of renting a villa for your wedding celebrations and hiring an external caterer for the banqueting. We can guide you through this process, make suggestions, advise on budget and ultimately create a wedding that is as unique as you are. The flexibility that this allows in terms of wedding styling means that every detail is made to measure. It is also a nice option for very small weddings (of less than 15 people) since the venue doubles as lodging and you can really get settled in and relaxed before your big day.
