At The Italian Villa we love to create the perfect setting for a wedding day at our charming venue and gardens. Our trusted suppliers help us to make that day extra special and for flowers one of our preferred florists are Parkwood Florists. For over five years Mike, Neil and the team at Parkwood have added their magic touch to numerous occasions with us. They also exhibit at our Wedding Shows three times a year. Grateful to have them as a partner, their outstanding service has contributed to The Italian Villa’s reputation as one of Dorset’s premier wedding venues. 

Parkwood are experienced in creating large themed displays through to simple and stylish bouquets. Able to interpret your ideas or guide you towards a fantastic design, they consistently supply stunning and creative flower arrangements to suit any event. Your personalised flowers are delivered pre-chilled and considerately packed to ensure everything is perfect for the big day. Accessories including lanterns, vases, mirrors and vintage table centres are available to help create the perfect look.
