Over the many years of wedding planning, the Italyweddings team have accumulated a vast knowledge of the best local suppliers, a thorough understanding of all legal and religious aspects, a love and involvement in local traditions and customs, and a passion for Italy’s enormous culinary and cultural heritage.

We have nurtured solid relationships with the top photographers, florists, and catering firms, that guarantee a first class service; along with a knowledge of the important villas, restaurants and hotels in the area.


But more than this, Italywedding’s driving passion is the aesthetic and visual nature of event planning. We love to see your Pinterest pages, mood-boards, hear your particular dreams, loves and hates, ideas and vision for your your wedding, and work with you on even the smallest detail to make that as real as possible!
