The Italian Villa at Compton Acres

Set over three floors and styled like a grand Tuscan villa, The Italian Villa is located within manicured grounds at Compton Acres, renowned as one of the country’s finest privately owned gardens. The venue is large enough for 180 guests but equally suitable for more intimate weddings. Licensed for ceremonies you can host your whole day under one roof, including an evening party in the stunning Siena Suite on the lower ground floor. The balcony overlooks the breathtaking Italian Garden with its ornate fountain and themed sculptures; perfect for standout photos. You and your guests can enjoy full access to all 10 acres of glorious gardens at Compton Acres, so there’s no shortage of fabulous photo opportunities. The award-winning beaches at Sandbanks are only a two-minute drive away too, if you fancy a photo shoot by the sea.
