Getting married in Puglia

Villas for weddings in Puglia

A wedding in Puglia? A great idea! Especially if you choose the right venue...

Several of our villas lend themselves to wedding day festivities, offering space, a beautiful setting, a touch of luxury and a highly professional level of service.

The company's London offices work hand in hand with its on-the-spot concierge who will be there on the day to ensure that everything runs smoothly and according to plan.

Apart from sublime venues, The Thinking Traveller can also arrange a variety of essential services, including help with the formalities of getting married in Italy, catering, flowers, accommodation for extra guests in other The Thinking Traveller properties nearby, airport transfers, live music and much, much more.

In accordance with Italian law, official wedding ceremonies can only take place in a church (for Catholic Weddings) or in a town hall (for Civil Weddings). Should you choose the second option, we can also arrange a supplementary symbolic ceremony at your villa, giving you the opportunity to share your vows with your family and friends.

There are a number of bureaucratic requirements that you will need to fulfill to get married in Italy.  These differ depending on your nationality and where you want to get married (i.e. in a church or in a town hall).  We will be happy to provide you with a detailed list of the documentation you need, but we also recommend you contact your government’s Foreign Office and / or an Italian Embassy or Consulate.

Please find below some detailed information on pricing. For further information and assistance in planning your dream wedding in Puglia, please write to or give us a call on +44 (0)20 7377 8518 or 1-800-490-1107 (toll-free from the US and Canada).

Terms and conditions

Think Experiences are provided by independent local companies which are neither owned not controlled by The Thinking Traveller and for whom we act only as an agent. Whilst every effort is made to keep the description of every Think Experience up to date, the provider may cancel or amend your experience at their discretion for many reasons including where it considers that there may be a risk to your comfort, health or safety. Some excursions/activities (i.e. helicopter rides, excursions on Mount Etna, boat charter, etc.) may contain an element of risk or require a good level of physical fitness, and, if in doubt, you should contact us so we can put you in contact directly with the local provider before deciding to buy. Please also check that you are covered for the activity(ies) in question by your travel insurance policy.

In acting in the capacity of an agent on behalf of the provider, your contract will be with that provider and will be subject to their standard terms and conditions, and it will not form part of your contracted holiday arrangements with us. Any complaint (including any allegation of breach of contract or negligence) should be taken up with the excursion/activity provider directly. We will do our best to assist you, but will have no liability in relation to the performance of that contract.
