These words, belonging to one of the country’s greatest composers, perfectly encapsulate Italy for me: all you could possibly want, in one country. Italy, in all its variety and variations, does not disappoint. It is a country of wonderful contradictions: vibrantly urban and yet blissfully rural, charmingly classical yet stylishly modern, reverently traditional yet creatively avant-garde, elegantly understated yet proudly passionate…conflicting existences in perfect harmony.
Your personal love affair with Italy may very possibly begin without your even knowing where you wish to host your wedding. This is where we at Accent Events can help…we get to know you, your tastes, your wishes and your aspirations and we offer you options perfectly tailored to you!
We want to know what you want from your wedding day and we want to make those wants a reality against one of the beautiful backdrops that Italy offers.
Our weddings have no boundaries – as an independent and owner-led company our portfolio is forever expanding thanks to our weddings and to our own passion for finding the as-yet-undiscovered secret wonders of Italy.
We fall in love with each of our venues….each one has its own special memory or story for us: a cup of espresso shared with our host in an old kitchen of a Duke’s villa set among Europe’s largest lemon grove; sampling homemade delicacies lovingly-baked each morning at a private villa residence on the Sorrento Peninsula; sun, laughter and delicious aperitifs in one of George Clooney’s Lake Como haunts.
Begin your love affair with Italy by finding the perfect “I do” location. Be it in città (in town) in campagna (in the countryside) or sulla costiera (on the coast) we know we have just the perfect place for you and your wedding in Italy!
Imagine exchanging your vows at a lakeside villa, in a secret lemon grove, in an enchanting forest, on a breathtaking terrace perched above the sea, in an ancient courtyard or majestic hall, rich with history and opulence…
Dream of celebrating with those you love in the characteristic salons and grounds of a Medieval castle or an ancient noble home, a historic hotel or a farmhouse estate
Evoke the blissful surroundings of lush countryside plains, a patchwork of greens and yellows, of wheat fields, sunflowers, vineyards and lemon and olive groves stretching as far as the eye can see and broken only by lines of cypress trees
Or the vibrant colours of a seaside setting, sun-drenched sands and crystalline waters blending from azure to emerald, fishing boats rocking gently with the tide, brightly-hued houses, trailing flowers blooming unexpectedly and delightfully to create an artist’s dream palette
We can’t wait to introduce you to ‘your Italy’…those perfect places and propositions to perfectly suit you – but in the meantime, just to whet your appetite…
From the humblest and most ancient Medieval dwellings to the grandest regal abodes, Italy offers charming and characteristic castle and noble homes evoking the architectural splendour and ambient elegance of different historic periods.
Villas, residences, farmhouses and Medieval hamlets are sprinkled throughout Italy’s verdant countryside settings, commanding breathtaking views whether strewn across rolling hills or nestled among chestnut trees, apple orchards, lemon and olive groves, lavender and orange blossoms, and many other wonderful varieties of flora and fauna that add to their appeal.
From the rugged, natural beauty of undiscovered Italian coastal regions to the tamer, perfected appeal of more popular holiday destinations, Italy’s coastal paradises offer everything from 5-star luxury hotels to tiny family run restaurants set against sparkling clear waters and enviable panoramas. Bask in the sunshine and live life as a VIP or make Italy your own.
From the magnificence of the Verona, Florence and Siena, and the distinctiveness of Venice, to the stylish modernity of Milan, the majesty of Rome and the audaciousness of Naples, Italy’s cities are utterly diverse and utterly unique – each with its own inimitable style and character and each offering a wonderful array of venues to suit every wish and want.
Capri is utterly exclusive and one of a kind – so much so that it deserves its own category. There is nowhere else on Earth like this tiny little island that has commanded the attention and awe of Roman statesmen, Hollywood heroes and heroines, artists, poets, politicians and philosophers alike. It truly is a jewel with so many wonders and so many wonderful venues packed into one small and enchanting bundle.
