PUGLIA WEDDING VENUES
A Masseria wedding in Puglia comes with all the benefits of an exclusive luxury hotel and reception venue, and in my experience as a Puglia photographer it reflects all the beauty and charm of the region. Masseria weddings may remind you a lot of Greece destination weddings and that is hardly an accident as Puglia is also known as Magna Grecia (great Greece). White washed structures, olive groves and sparkling water beaches only with an Italian twist. Specialists at hosting Italy wedding celebrations with many parties the best venues in Puglia are naturally talented at creating an ambiance with their traditional tarandtella dances and creamy light. My advice? Do not miss the chance to have a 3-day Puglia affair for a wedding in Puglia, packed with a rehearsal dinner in a rustic villa, to hold a gorgeous olive grove ceremony in Puglia, or an after the wedding Slim Aarons style pool party. The Puglia wedding tradition of a “Festa in Piazza” where various local specialties are presented on islands in the Masseria while guests taste, try and celebrate – is a total win.
