Tuscany is definitely one of the most beautiful places to get married in: its stunning scenery and breathtaking views are a wonderful marriage setting and will make those magic moments even more unforgettable.
Three towns in particular stand out as the most exclusive places for a wedding ceremony: Certaldo, Pienza and Montalcino.
Getting married in Certaldo
Certaldo is one of Tuscany's best preserved villages, with wonderful barley fields, cypresses trees and olive groves: the word "cerrus", in fact, meant "hill sorrounded by oaks" in Latin. The town is divided in two parts and the most picturesque between the two is Certaldo Alto, birthplace of Giovanni Bocaccio and made of medieval houses and palaces. Different wedding ceremonies are available: it's possible to choose between civil, symbolic or catholic marriage in one of the many reception venues available. Couples who get married in Certaldo experience an authentic medieval atmosphere since the Wedding Hall is located in the medieval walled town on a hill. This charming upper town can be reached on foot or by cable car anyway we always provide complete info on the upper town, the Old Certaldo, to have everything: accommodations, wedding hall and restaurant on hand.
Weddings in Pienza
Pienza is a Renaissance town from the 15th century: its buildings are symmetrically located around the central piazza and for centuries it has represented the Ideal City, being taken as a model all around Italy. Nowadays it represents one of the best settings for wedding pictures since no traffic is allowed in the city historical center. The civil wedding ceremonies are performed in the small city hall, furnished with Gothic elements and wonderful frescoes, able to hold up to 40 guests. We love to recommend Pienza for the special atmosphere, an ideal city to celebrate your romantic and Italian Wedding immersed in the most stunning and unforgettable Tuscan Countryside. Formalities before the wedding are not requested, wedding ceremonies are celebrated in Italian and then translated by an official interpreter.
Marriage Ceremony in Montalcino
The village of Montalcino is definitely a special location for Italian weddings. The town is surrounded by vineyards, thick forests and olive trees which give her the typical Tuscan look. There are many medieval original buildings that can be seen walking along the narrow streets of Montalcino, among which the Cathedral and the Palazzo Comunale stand out for their beauty. Civil weddings are performed in the 13th century town hall, located in Piazza del Popolo, still decorated with its original frescoes. After the celebration a nice photographic session around Montalcino will be a lovely memory to take back home with you and to show to all your relatives and guests that weren't present in your very special day. Before leaving, visit all the little workshops and buy some of their handcrafted items, we are sure you will find something special to bring back home with you, reminding of your unforgettable wedding in Montalcino.
