Palazzo Ducale Venturi in Italy’s charming Puglia is offering an unforgettable three-day destination wedding celebration like no other. Set in the enchanting region of Salento, the boutique hotel is offering engaged couples a new three-day experience to celebrate love in all its expressions, including a welcome reception at a nearby ancient castle, the wedding day at the palazzo itself and a post-event pizza and pool party to round off celebrations in true style.
The luxurious three-day Living History wedding package combines three stunning Puglian venues allowing engaged couples to celebrate with the best of Italian renaissance history and luxury hospitality. Couples can look forward to kicking off festivities with a welcome cocktail party at medieval castle, Castello di Casamessella. The beautiful setting gives the couple, their friends and family time to reunite, catch up and unwind over unlimited drinks and delicious food to a backdrop of striking Italian architecture.
After a romantic evening and sound night’s sleep at the hotel, the happy couple can look forward to getting ready in the Ducal suite, where their every need will be attended to, along with a constant supply of bubbles and five-star service. The special day itself is held at the elegant and beautifully restored Palazzo Ducale Venturi, one of the first noble houses in Salento to open itself to guests. Couples can celebrate their love surrounded by fragrant orange and lemon trees in the hotel’s garden. After walking down the aisle, and being escorted through a decadent rose covered archway, the magical ceremony will take place in the secret citrus grove, as they share their vows in front of an ancient stone fountain.
Following the al fresco ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests will be whisked off to the enchanted Castello al Borgo, a beautiful renaissance castle in the quaint medieval town of Alessano, a picturesque 30-minute drive away. Here couples can host their wedding reception, with an exquisite Italian meal and bespoke wedding cake to mark the beginning of their marriage. Following the traditional reception, families and friends can dance the night away in this unique location, with live music and a photo service available on request. Couples can also rent a vintage car to end their special night in style, making an exit to remember.
On the third and final day of celebrations, the wedding party will enjoy a relaxed pizza pool party at Palazzo Ducale Venturi. The lush grounds provide the perfect backdrop for guests to recover from celebrations the night before and an ideal spot for making handmade pizzas in the palazzo’s ancient salt ovens, with delicious fresh cocktails in hand.
Throughout the three-day celebration, couples and their loved ones can stay in Palazzo Ducale Venturi’s 20 luxury bedrooms, making the whole event as seamless as possible with everything they need being on site. Newlyweds will be welcomed to the Ducal Suite, which features romantic frescoes, a spacious living area and direct access to the pool through a private patio. The former 16th century palace is also home to a wellness area, which includes an underground heated pool with a jacuzzi, well-equipped gym, cryotherapy cabin and a massage room for couples to enjoy quiet, precious moments amidst or after all the excitement of their wedding. Following three unforgettable days in a traditional Italian village with their nearest and dearest, couples can of course carry on their stay at Palazzo Ducale Venturi to begin their honeymoon in style.
