Spectacular, Stunning and amazing are just some of the words I would use to describe this venue. My wife and I had our wedding here in June 2019 and it was the best decision we ever made. We are both from Ireland and so travelled to Italy one year before the date to look at venues. All in all we looked at 24 venues across all of Italy and La Badia was our final stop. We wanted a venue close to a town that could cater for over 100 travelling guests. As the venue itself is located less than five minute drive from the town, this meant that all out guests could experience an Italian wedding and an Umbrian town. The town itself has so much history, nice shops, narrow streets, churches, and fantastic restaurants.
As soon as we checked in for the first time and walked out to the courtyard, we knew we had found our venue. The venue overlooks the cliffs of Orvieto and the views across the valley are breath taking. This venue ticks all the boxes. Exclusive use, Rooms on site, Close to beautiful town, Church on the grounds and amazing food.
We didn’t have a wedding planner but Andreina, Tommaso, Rossella & team are all so helpful and accommodating. They helped us all along the way. We did travel to the venue once more to do a tasting and speak to a Florist.
The day of the wedding was perfect. After breakfast I was able to go for a swim to unwind while the bridal party got ready. We had a catholic ceremony in the church at 4 pm followed by an aperitif in the garden overlooking Orvieto. From there we moved to the Archway and had dinner while the sun set, followed by Dessert in the court yard. By this stage, our band Guty and Simone had already set up here and so we were able to dance into the night. The food on the day was incredible.
We can’t wait to celebrate future anniversaries at this venue.
