NKT Events Venue Guide 2020: France & Italy

We’ve been very busy here at NKT Events over the last few months planning for a big 2020. After lots of work, lots of planning and many great ideas from wonderful colleagues, we’ve relaunched NKT with new branding and a new website! We’re so grateful to everyone who helped us bring this vision to life and we’re so happy we can finally share it! We’re also hugely excited about something else we’ve been hard at work putting together…a little something for all of you, our Venue Guide 2020 for France and Italy!

In our 2020 Venue Guide, we list our top wedding venues in the two most requested regions for destination weddings, France / Italy. We’ve had the pleasure of working with all of them and they all have a great deal to offer. Our guide will take you through the important questions to ask, top tips for planning a destination wedding and what you absolutely need to be aware of when you begin that oh, so important wedding venue search! To give you a little taste of what our guide offers, here are the basics about our top wedding venues in France and Italy…

Located an hour outside of Paris, this destination wedding venue affords
you both rolling hills and a romantic French-country feel while still being close enough to the city for trips, shopping and a vibrant nightlife.

Château d’Estoublon

500 acres of Provence vines, parkland, olive groves and wooded beauty,
this venue is breathtaking and feels like a true escape. The fact that it’s so secluded also means there is no music time restriction, so the celebrations can last all night!

Les Domaines de Petras

Also in Provence, Les Domaines de Patras is family owned and allows more guests than some of our other top venues that made the list. Up to 300 guests can party the night away as there are no music restrictions at this venue, either.
