……Coming soon to Wanderlust Weddings – another stunning Algarve wedding which we are really looking forward to sharing!
Located in the heart of Rome’s historical Appia Antica Park on the road that once connected Rome to Brindisi, Villa Dino sits amongst botanical gardens surrounded by trees, flowers and extensive meadows – perfect for a romantic and elegant destination wedding in Italy.
Villa Dino has two exquisite and spacious living rooms with large windows offering an elegant atmosphere for a wedding with a maximum capacity of approximately 250 people for the hall on the first floor, and 200 on the ground floor. Both rooms are air conditioned, making it an ideal location for summer weddings too. A magnificent outdoor ceremony and reception can also be arranged at this breathtaking venue.
A beautiful fountain welcomes guests to the stunning venue and family and friends can enjoy elegant cocktails under the stars in the fragrant citrus grove. Historical artefacts embellish the garden making each wedding at Villa Dino truly unique. Strolling along the boulevard entrance, a monumental Roman colonnade can be seen with a magnificent backdrop for scenic outdoor wedding ceremonies.

A really interesting post on getting married in Lucca, Italy….Definitely worth a read if you are considering having an Italian destination wedding…..

Lucca is probably less known than some of the other tuscan towns but it is certainly worth a visit and it is a great location to hold a destination wedding. Since it is located close to Pisa, Florence as well as the tuscan seaside it provides the opportunity to explore both cities and the coastal towns. And I can’t forget to mention its proximity to Pisa and Florence airport.
One of the most charming characteristics of Lucca are the renaissance era walls. These walls enclose the city and are still surprisingly intact. Along the wall is a lovely pedestrian promenade where you can take a casual stroll around the city, run, bike or even have a picnic.
You can plan an intimate celebration in the medieval town however the surrounding countryside in Lucca offers a spectacular backdrop to a wedding celebration. In fact there is a number of Monumental villas in the Lucca countryside that were built by wealthy merchants in the mid 16th century. Today you can rent these spectacular monumental villas for weddings. Here is just one example of a monumental villa in Lucca available for weddings (although there are many to choose from).

The Limonaia or “Lemon tree” house available to hold wedding receptions as well. Can you picture your wedding here???
If you are looking for a more casual and rustic location there are many ‘agriturismi’ or farmhouse stays that allow you to stay on site and hold a wedding reception. Farmhouse Lucca 2 is a perfect example of a beautiful rustic setting where you can sleep, hold a civil ceremony and have a wedding reception all on site.
Getting married in Lucca
One of the advantages of getting married in Lucca is that the town hall gives permission to selected locations the possibility to hold an outdoor civil ceremony on site. Generally civil ceremonies must be held in a town hall so the possibility to hold a civil ceremony outside the town hall is certainly a plus. For more information on specific locations that allow on site civil ceremonies please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Holding a catholic ceremony in Lucca can be tricky so it is a good idea to have Tuscania events assist you with this type of ceremony as the Archdiocese of Lucca generally does not permit foreign couples to marry in Lucca. However there is always a way to make an alternative plan. Here is an example of a church that is available for catholic weddings in the nearby area.
Chiesa di San Marco a Rigoli
In the end there are truly many advantages to choosing Lucca for your destination wedding in Italy. A wedding celebrated here will truly be unforgettable. For more information about a wedding in Lucca or for a personalised proposal please contact us at email@example.com
Let the dream begin!!!!
A romantic destination wedding villa in Rome……..Coming soon to Wanderlust Weddings!!
An interesting read for destination brides……

Wedding websites allow your guests one-stop shopping when it comes time for them to arrange their travel plans as well as other details. You can be as specific as you wish and link your website directly to the hotel reservation pages that you would like to recommend to your guests.
You will find that having a website is not only a time-saver but a budget-saver as well. The multiple mailings that can sometimes become necessary to communicate with your guests can easily eat up a good portion of any wedding budget. Allowing your guests to RSVP online will also cut down on your wedding expenses. No need for RSVP cards! However, you can always order just enough for those guests who may not be web savvy.
Destination weddings have definitely become a way for couples to express their style in a less traditional way. If you choose to have your wedding in a destination location, try to make it a fun experience for you and your fiancé as well as for your guests.
Destination Wedding Tips
1. Location, Location, Location. When selecting a location, choose one that appeals to your tastes and wedding style. Keep in mind, however, that because it won’t be as easy as going down the street to the local church to attend your wedding, you’ll have to assume that your guest list may be smaller. You’ll need to get a good sense about the number of attendees you wish to have before selecting your event facility so you can be confident that it will be appropriate for the crowd.
