Massive congratulations go to Carine and Dez on their wedding celebrations at the Italian Villa!
For those of you that don’t know, the Italian Villa is a wedding venue is part of Compton Acres in Poole, Dorset. They are award winners (regional winners for the 2019 Wedding Industry Awards) and their service is second to none. It is exclusively managed by multi award-winning caterers Beales Gourmet, - and the food is fantastic!
Dez organised our participation inside of a month which was very brave. Brave? Well mostly because it’s cutting it fine if you are in competition with Christmas bookings. Luckily we have quite a few photo booths ready to hire out so it wasn’t a problem. We have several Mirror booths and this is what Dez chose, along with a backdrop. This was for our Gold package which includes video and green screens. In the end it was pretty much too noisy to get any decent video footage.
The Italian Villa has to be one of our favourite Poole venues - even if there are rather more stairs than we’d like. Parking is very easy and the main meal and activities are all held upstairs. After that the guests make their way downstairs to the bar and disco area - which is where they’ll find us! We are almost always placed opposite the bar but around the corner from the disco (so no interference from their lights). As you can see from the image below, there isn’t a lot of room = the room itself can probably fit about 100 people in total. Naturally people will be in and out of that room during the evening.
