Wedding Photographer at The Italian Villa in Poole
The Italian Villa in Poole is one of the most stunning and unique wedding venues in Dorset and indeed the Bournemouth area and I'm honoured to be a recommended wedding photographer there. Not only do local newly engaged couples book their wedding at the special venue, but many from London venture down to book their wedding there too as there is simply nothing else like it in the UK.
The Italian Villa is situated in the Sandbanks area of Poole, ranking fourth for the highest land value in the world and hosting some of the best beaches in Britain, named by national media as "Britain's Palm Beach". Couple's may look at this venue and think it will be way out of their budget, however the regularly booked Italian style venue is one of the most booked venues in Dorset and is surprisingly affordable.
The Italian Villa is set within the beautiful Compton Acres gardens, known as the South's Finest Privately Owned Historic Gardens, boasting 10 Acres of beautiful Victorian Mixed Style design with seven distinct gardens to wander around and enjoy, including the famous Italian and Japanese Gardens. Having undergone extensive refurbishment in the past 8 years, Compton Acres is now highly regarded as one of the most important historic gardens in England.
Compton Acres also hosts one of the South's fastest growing event catering companies, Beales Gourmet established and run by award winning chef Tony Beales. Beales Gourmet brings a modern and sophisticated approach to catering at the Italian Villa for your wedding and events. The venue accommodates for events and corporate functions as well, including business conferences, parties and more.
I have covered weddings and corporate events at The Italian Villa a number of times and I'm very honoured to be one of their recommended wedding photographers. I know the team there very well and work with them often as well as knowing the grounds very well and local area.
The Italian Villa is one of my favourite venues to capture weddings at. It has it all! 3 levels for all parts of your wedding day. Well lit ceremony room (Medici Suite), well lit reception room (Verona) and the Siena Suite on the lower floor for your evening reception celebrations. The gardens and beaches close by make it a photographers dream to photograph in as there are so many locations to photograph you on your beautiful wedding day.
The Verona Suite is licensed to hold up to 120 guests for your ceremony and the Medici Suite below can cater for up to 250 people which means The Italian Villa can cater for small or larger weddings, including Indian Weddings at The Italian Villa which I have had the absolute honour of covering before.
