When Mediterranean meets exotic
Enchanting and vaguely exotic sceneries, a countryside dotted with white houses and dry-stone walls between expanses of olive groves, a crystal-clear sea and a long lasting summer, all combined with a superb food and wine tradition: Puglia has every reason to be one of the most popular destinations for couples who want to get married in Italy. The “heel of Italy” is the land of Salento with its stunning beaches, the rocky coast of Gargano, the bucolic countryside, the amazing “trulli” of Alberobello and the echo of the Magna Grecia that persists in cities like Lecce, Brindisi or Bari. It is also the land of beautiful churches and cathedrals such as the baroque Basilica of Santa Croce in Lecce or the Cathedral of Brindisi, but also the home of small churches that dot all the territory, simple, silent and magnificent. A wedding in Puglia means an immersion in beauty, in the pleasure of the senses and in the joy of life. If you want to make this dream come true, know that there are so many options for Puglia wedding locations, including luxury farms, hotels by the sea and dizzying castles. You will be spoiled for choice in organizing an unforgettable wedding!
The rediscovery of ancient “masserie”
A typical feature in southern Italy and particularly in Puglia wedding venues is the renovation of the old “masserie” (ancient farms) and their transformation in wonderful reception rooms. In these places ancient and new coexist in harmonious balance, with a charming atmosphere that satisfies the most refined tastes. Almost all these building were founded in the years between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century especially in the countryside of the Valle d'Itria, but some of them have also a privileged access to the beach. The masseria perfectly fits for weddings because it allows you to bring together in a single structure many different environments where to place the various moments of a wedding banquet and party. So, for example, the old barn is ready to host the wedding lunch or dinner, while the court is the suggestive scenery for the welcome cocktail or the toast. Don’t miss the chance to celebrate your special day in one of this jewels in the heart of Puglia!
Another strength of Puglia is its delicious cuisine, which gives the utmost importance to the quality of the typical products. Rediscovering the most authentic apulian food and wine vocation is a never ending pleasure, thanks to the local production that always ensures the presence of homemade bread and locally produced wine and oil. Among “orecchiette” (the most famous kind of pasta), cheeses and mouth-watering desserts you will be spoiled for choice for the creation of your bridal menu. When orecchiette meet turnip tops it doesn’t get any better! And what about the delicious “taralli”, crispy baked donuts famous all over the world? Or the rustic and tasty focaccia pugliese, the bread from Altamura, the delicious friselle or the burrata from Andria? Meat is not missing, with dishes such as the famous “capocollo” from Martina Franca, of course there are the flavors of the sea and also many products from the garden: in Puglia you have the chance to satisfy all tastes and make your guests enjoy an authentic wedding with all five senses.
