An original idea for

your wedding in Puglia

Together with my staff of wedding planners, we look after all aspects of your wedding reception, parties and events that go well beyond the actual wedding ceremony itself. 

We work with both Italian and foreign couples, offering a diversified range of services and fully embracing the “Wedding Vacation” concept.

For us, organising the perfect wedding in Apulia means looking after every last detail of the wedding event, making sure it completely reflects the future spouses’ desires, proposing unconventional locations in addition to menus and wine lists that transform into unique visual and tasting experiences, but above all it means combining your “yes” day with an unforgettable holiday in Italy’s beautiful Apulia.

“With elegance, creativity and experience, at Emotions in Puglia we guide our future spouses toward the perfect organisation of their nuptials, reception and everything in between

A Destination Wedding is organized abroad, far away from the spouses’ and the hosts’ home. Viola Tarantino and the Emotions in Puglia staff organize Destination Weddings anywhere in Italy and in Apulia. Foreigners who are choosing Apulia and other Italian spots are a growing number. 

Why a Destination Wedding?

Because foreigners love such a rich country, in terms of beauty, history and arts. Apulia is a mix of these features and, for this reason, it is the perfect destination for an amazing wedding.

Viola Tarantino


I'm the boss! A mother of two beautiful young girls, an inveterate traveller, a lover of art and beautiful things, a trend setter, serial organiser, network generator among people with differing interests... a real ball of fire! A party organiser for as long as I can remember, my happenings during my adolescence are now part of a collective memory...

After completing my high-school diploma in languages, in parallel with my studies in tourism sciences, I was the first in Apulia to delve into the world of incoming tourism and events. After working for both local and national tourism organisations, focusing primarily on territorial development and the organisation of team building events, I went on to specialise in private event and wedding planning. 

In 2008 Emotions in Puglia was founded, a project I initially shared with other partners before fully taking over the reins in 2015 and becoming the sole owner. I specialise in destination weddings but am also actively involved in the study and development of “wedding tourism” in Apulia.

 “the bride and groom’s best friend”

My vital goal is to make my couples happy! My greatest pleasure is organising the perfect wedding and finding all the best Apulia and Italy have to offer my clients: a love for art, authentic food and excellent wine, history, romantic cities, small villages and boundless landscapes... without a doubt the perfect ingredients for a truly unforgettable wedding in Apulia! Not only do I organise weddings, I am also a consultant for the development of Apulia as a wedding destination, working with numerous wedding venues and suppliers in the wedding industry. 

In 2018 I founded the Associazione Wedding Planner Puglia together with 15 other colleagues, of which I am currently the president.

In 2019 I created #btminlove, the first b2b dedicated to wedding tourism, with a dedicated space inside the  BTM tourism fair.

Since 2020 I have been one of the founding partners and a member of the steering committee of the  Puglia Wedding Production Association, the first association to represent the Apulian wedding industry.


Emotions in Puglia is not only Viola Tarantino: it is a team of professional staff who are ready to arrange everything an engaged couple dream for their wedding day.
