“What an amazing day. From booking our wedding to the end of the actual day, we couldn't fault a single thing. Frankie was absolutely amazing, answering all our emails and queries we had before the day and nothing was ever too much to ask. On the day itself, Nikki was incredible; the day ran like clockwork. We have had endless compliments from our guests on the day, the food, staff and the venue itself. Thank you to everyone at The Italian Villa for making our wedding everything that we had dreamed of and more. It was truly unforgettable." Sam & Emma Scott
