Once you get to see Puglia with your own eyes you fall in love with this region forever.
Apulia, or Puglia in Italian, with it’s amazing sea-to- sky views:
clear blue water and stunning white-sand beaches is also rich in local flavour.
Scenic landscapes and pristine nature blend here with the
traces of beautiful baroque history and truly Italian spirit. Located at the heel of Italy’s boot, this
southern region is stretched along the Mediterranean sea. There are many comfortable villas
and hotels that can accommodate any number of guests. If you prefer celebrity-style chic
wedding, you may want to explore the Borgo Egnazia Resort, where Jessica Biel and Justin
Timberlake tied the knot. But no matter which venue you choose, your guests will remember
your wedding in Puglia as the wonderful vacation, the time for which they said goodbye to their
daily lives and dived into beautiful Italian culture and laid-back lifestyle.
There is a good chance you are already inspired by the romantic beach wedding photos, just
think for a moment that you and your fiancee could get even better ones. How beautiful would it
look and how incredible will you feel when repeating your vows standing so close to the sea!
Italian law requires couples to get married in church or in city hall, but because Puglia is not yet
crowded by tourists, you may be able to arrange an additional symbolic ceremony on the beach
after the official marriage procedure.
Another good reason to choose Puglia for your wedding is the weather. It gets warm early in the
southern part of Italy. The average temperature in March is around 20 degrees.
