Dorset’s most prestigious wedding venue, The Italian Villa, is set against a divine 10 acres of manicured gardens within the renowned Compton Acres and is the perfect setting for that magical day when you say “I do”.
The multi award-winning wedding venue - recently receiving the National Wedding Industry Award for Best Venue (Town/City) - provides Bridal couples with 3 floors of unrivalled elegance to lay on their dream wedding. It features a balcony overlooking the breath-taking Italian Garden to ensure that wedding photos will be truly unforgettable.
When you book The Italian Villa, the multi-award winning venue becomes yours alone for the entire event. With over three floors, the grand Villa gives couples a true fairy-tale wedding venue, never having to worry about seeing “other guests at a hotel”, or have “staff attending to other matters”... When at The Italian Villa, YOU are their ONLY priority. The team’s impeccable standards ensure that the entire wedding party feel like VIPs.
Along with direct access into the phenomenal Italian Garden, the Villa can cater for small, intimate wedding receptions for 60, or can provide a relaxed setting for up to 250 guests when using the Italian Garden. Well-appointed with lifts to all three floors, air conditioning, built in sound systems and speakers, a stage, and audio-visual screens, The Villa’s superb facilities enable couples to theme or create the most memorable occasion.
The Italian Villa is a stone’s throw from the beautiful golden beaches at Sandbanks in Poole, and easily accessible from surrounding areas of Dorset. A wide range of accommodation is available at nearby hotels and guest houses, with plenty within walking distance.
