The Italian Destination Wedding Show Report
Finally, a wedding show dedicated to Italy has arrived to London and we wouldn’t have missed it for the world! Last Sunday we attended the Italian Destination Wedding Show, hosted in the beautiful Sofitel St. James. New of its kind, this show is an answer to the growing success of Italy as a wedding destination. It was a small event with carefully selected venues. Moving away from the beaten track, it showcased upcoming locations such as Veneto, Apulia and Sicily.
At A Taste of Beauty we are committed to find unique venues for unique weddings. This is why we are constantly hunting for the best venues in Italy. So we could not pass on the opportunity to discover new amazing jewels to make our couples dreams come true! Here are 3 amazing venues that we discoverd at the Italian Destination Wedding Show and added to our recommended list:
This a one-of-a-kind, exclusive resort in the heart of Tuscany’s countryside offers a destination wedding experience like no other. Hidden in the idyllic scenery of Tuscan rolling plains, close to both Arezzo and Florence. This impressive estate includes an elegant country dwelling, an ancient church, its own vineyards, golf course, spa, swimming pools, hectares of parkland, and even a charming medieval village! Where else in the world would you find a venue like this?
The Resort offers stunning entertainment space, luxury accommodation and plenty of activities to choose from. Horse riding, golf, wine tasting, spa treatments, excursions, etc. All the villas and farmhouses of the estate, as well as the village houses, have been tastefully converted into guest accommodation.
If you are planning a grand event, then all of this could be yours and you and your guests could share the experience of a lifetime. And if you are planning a smaller wedding, you can hire just part of the estate. This way you will still take advantage of all the perks and activities the estate has to offer. The magic atmosphere of this place will make your special day unforgettable.
The sumptuous interiors and elegant Italian garden of this beautiful villa are the perfect setting for a fabulous wedding. This charming venue is trategically set between Venice, Veneto’s vineyards, and the Dolomites. It is immersed in a quiet corner of idyllic countryside and the perfect place for a gateway wedding. The impeccable hospitality of this romantic villa will make any event memorable and offer plenty of amenities for your guests.

Such as wine tastings in Valpollicella, gastronomical tours of the area, daily trips to Venice, shopping expeditions to the local fashion districts and amazing designer outlets!
Apulia is becoming one of the most sought after wedding destinations in Italy. With the likes of Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel choosing to get married there. This fabulous Masseria is located between Bari and Brindisi, in a small town by the sea and surrounded by a luxuriant Mediterranean garden. The manor farm boasts an elegant dwelling, four charming villas, two swimming pools and an ancient oil mill.
The gorgeous garden guarantees absolute privacy and is perfect for outdoor entertainment. Enclosed by walls, with its paths winding between colourful plants, as well as orange, lemon, olive and palm trees. The entire complex has been entirely renovated to high standards, with great attention to detail and all modern comforts. The venue provides stunning entertainment space and great accommodation for you and your wedding party. A dedicated staff will be at your disposal throughout your stay and during your event.
Furthermore, you and your guests will be able to enjoy all that hospitable Apulia has to offer and have a truly unforgettable destination wedding. The venue is close to several amazing tourist attractions and set between seaside and country. The area offers plenty of outdoor activities, cultural & gastronomical itineraries, and wildlife excursion. So, if you are planning a Mediterranean style wedding, then this unique slice of heaven is the ideal choice.
To conclude, the Italian Destination Wedding Show was a total success and we are so excited about these new amazing venues. We can’t wait to start planning a wedding there! This show was a good opportunity to make exciting new contacts. So we hope in time it will grow into a mainstream event to promote all that Italy has to offer.
