The Italian Villa

If you’re dreaming of lush gardens, water features and a riot of summer-bright blooms for your big day, this stunning venue ticks all the boxes. The Italian Villa is set against 10 acres of breathtaking manicured gardens within the renowned Compton Acres; the only dilemma is deciding which picture-perfect spot to choose for the just-wed shots. You and your guests can enjoy access to all the spectacular themed gardens and the picturesque courtyard, ensuring plenty of stop-stare moments.

Inside the venue boasts three stylish suites, set over three floors and styled like a grand Tuscan villa. Big enough to host up to 180 guests, the balcony overlooks the Italian Garden with its ornate fountain and themed sculptures adding to the opulent feel. Ceremonies for up to 120 loved ones are held in the Verona Suite on the first floor, or in the grand Medici Suite, for those with a bigger guest list.
