Here is one of many, recently arrived…
“Ciao Marco,
Please pass my thanks onto Ina, Alex and the rest of your team – it wouldn’t have been perfect without your tireless efforts.
On the answers below, I presume you use these for learning and marketing. If you need me to clarify anything or expand on any details, I’d be more than happy to do so.
Thanks again
Daniel and Emma”

Describe your wedding and holiday experience at our Italian villa

The experience began in April 2016 when we were invited to stay at Villa Baroncino for 3 days to see the location for ourselves. The grounds were so beautiful that we had decided to book the villa for our wedding before we had even got out of the car. We didn’t tell Marco at the time but after one night’s stay, we had decided to cancel the viewings we had booked at other venues so that we could enjoy more time in the villa and the locale.

We were greeted by Marco and Ina who showed us around the grounds and explained about the villa’s history and how our wedding day would progress. At this point, we’d fallen in love with the villa so quickly, we soon progressed into how we would go about booking and organising our wedding.

Between our first meeting in April 2016 and our wedding in May 2018, the experience and organisation were exemplary. Throughout the planning stage, Alex and Marco were in constant communication and quickly earned our confidence that the planning was in safe hands, every detail was considered and that no request was too large. Almost to our disbelief (and to Marco and Alex’s credit), the planning phase was smooth and stress-free. It certainly made our friends who were also planning weddings at the same time quite jealous. Marco and I have joked about how “precise” (Diplomatic Italian for ‘demanding’) I could be but every request was catered for and our wedding day was meticulously planned. At every stage, Marco, Alex and Ina made the effort to make us feel like VIPs.

As May arrived we were again greeted at the Villa by Marco and Ina who spent an entire afternoon doing a final run-through of every single detail of our wedding; Timings, guests, weather, seating plans, preferences, hairstyles, playlists – literally everything. What really impressed me was that Marco conference called every one of our suppliers in front of us to confirm timings and clarify details. On that day, he ensured that everybody understood exactly what we wanted and how it would happen on the day.

We then had three days to enjoy the pool in 30-degree sunshine.

The day before our wedding, Marco and Ina conducted our wedding rehearsal. A genuinely enjoyable experience and what impressed us most was how well-oiled the whole process was. The entire operation benefits from being a dedicated wedding venue having catered to multiple couples before us and the rehearsal is the first chance you get to see Marco truly in action. The wedding day is choreographed superbly and the transition from the ceremony to photos to speeches and dinner is seamless.

Our wedding day was perfect.

Why would you recommend Italy to your best friend and especially our villas the perfect location for an incredibly romantic wedding?

Being at the wedding, they saw it for themselves. The fact that we had the villa for the week with all of our friends and family made the experience something far more special than we could have ever imagined.

The photos online do not prepare you for how beautiful the Villa and the location is.

Share with us your experience about our “Wine Wedding Italy” offer

Amongst the food, the weather and the scenery, the wine was one of many reasons for us to marry in Italy. The villa’s wine was truly excellent and the inclusion of wine as part of the whole package certainly made the planning process far easier.

The wine provided was sufficient to enjoy during the week we were there, our wedding day and still have enough to ship some back – something we can enjoy for our future together.

On reflection, it is quite a special thing to get married amongst the vines that then provided the wine for our wedding day.
