The day was absolutely fantastic and everything went exactly as we wanted; you were so accommodating to all of our needs in the build up and Stephanie was fantastic on the day. As you can probably remember I was worried about whether there would be enough food and I am happy to say that this aspect was a resounding success - the food was plentiful, delicious and beautifully presented. In short, you and the team listened to all of our requests and quirks and delivered it perfectly.
Mr & Mrs D
We absolutely cannot thank you enough for everything you did with the lead up to the day. It has been an absolute pleasure from the moment we met Cait to view the Italian Villa until the end of our big day.
The venue looked stunning and I can’t believe how lucky we were with the weather! All the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was amazing and everything was so well organised.
Stephanie was fantastic on the day too!
Also, I must thank Lily as I also spoke with her several times leading up to the day and she was always so friendly and was always nice to have a little chat when I called to arrange payments.
It has been a real pleasure and I just couldn’t have wished for a better setting but most importantly we appreciate all the help and efforts of those involved, that is really what makes the day run smoothly and ultimately a day we won’t forget!
Our day was beyond perfect!
From the day we booked the Italian Villa to our big day, the communication and organisation has been amazing! Thank you for helping us plan such a magical day. Special thanks to Frankie, who always replied to our long lists of questions so efficiently and in great detail!
Also, a special thanks to Stephanie our events coordinator on the day. Stephanie ensured our day was ran as smooth as possible, guiding and helping us with the speech announcements and our chinese tea ceremony preparations.
We’ve received endless comments on how beautiful the garden was, and how amazing the food and service was. Our guests felt cared for and we all had a fantastic day!
We couldn't thank you all enough for creating our magical perfect day, it felt like a dream!
Mr & Mrs Ma.
I know this place wins 'Dorset Wedding venue of the Year' regularly, but it really should win 'UK Wedding venue of the Year'! I really can't recommend it enough or do justice to the place with a few words. It was perfect. The venue itself is perfectly set up as a physical and beautiful, practical and spacious building, the gardens are inspirational and our guests really appreciated the opportunity to walk round them as part of their experience that day, the food was absolutely amazing - gourmet catering for over 100 people, the management made it easy for us in the build up and on the day, the staff were professional, well trained, friendly and lovely... As a personal experience as the bride, it couldn't have gone better or easier. And as a wedding guest experience I have only had effusive positive praise about the place. Thank you Italian Villa and everyone - please do use this venue, it was all-round brilliant.
We are finally settling down from our beautiful weekend. We would like to let you and The Italian Villa team know how amazing our day was and just how special it was due to your professionalism, assistance, efforts and dedication. Your services was very well received, our food was amazing it was exactly if not more than we imagined. Our guests loved the venue and just how well the team worked together.
Thank you for helping us put our visions into reality and helping to create our dream wedding. Extra special thank you for Amanda she was amazing and nothing was too much of an ask.
Mr & Mrs S.
Chris and I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help in ensuring everything went to plan last Sunday; from replying to our many questions via email over the last three years, always being at the end of the phone, to ensuring the numerous dietary requirements our guests had would be catered for.
We can’t thank you and the villa team enough, our meal was beautiful and lots of people commented and said it was the best roast they’d ever had and that the dessert exceeded their expectations. We couldn’t have wished for a better day and we are so grateful to yourself and the team who always went the extra mile to ensure everything was perfect on the day.
