ABOUT

The First Glance

Owned by the same family since the 1970s, this castle from the 11th century is one of Tuscany’s best kept secrets. Situated halfway between Rome and Florence, this boutique stone castle has been decorated with contemporary design artefacts gathered from travels by the owners across exotic locations. This venue has seven guestrooms, two infinity pools, and a spa, sleeping 22 individuals and hosting up to 180.

Here, weddings generally last for 3 days, each day a different event in a different location. Starting with a welcome BBQ by the infinity pool, ceremony by the vegetable garden followed by dinner in the olive courtyard offering 360 degrees views of Renaissance fresco hills and valleys. Delectable home-style Tuscan cuisine is prepared on-site, picked directly from the estate’s organic garden. For the celebratory party, the grand fields are a phenomenal option, followed by brunch by the olive grove pool.

You will love the original stone and brick walls, vaulted ceilings, huge fireplaces, and the graceful mix of antique and modern furniture. There is even a Balinese hut with floor to ceiling windows overlooking olive trees and a separate indoor hammam and sauna room.

The onsite team has over 15 years of experience in wedding organization, from planning to catering and flower arrangements. At the moment there are only a few dates available in 2021 and many open dates in 2022.

However, if you would like to process the legal paperwork in Italy, you will need to be slightly more organised (or get support from a local planner!). For Europeans and UK citizens, it is often recommended to contact the local Italian town hall 6-12 months before your ideal wedding date to find out about local civil partnership laws, including what documents you and your partner will need .

Typically, you must bring the “Certificate of Non Impediment” and “Statutory Declaration” translated in Italian and legalised with a Hague Apostille in the UK. Once you have decided your wedding date and venue, email these documents to the venue owner, wedding planner or go directly to the local town hall in Italy to register your civil partnership. The local town hall with arrange for the local mayor or representative to conduct a 20 minute ceremony for you in Italian. This is often held in the Town Hall or in a villa with a wedding permit.

You are required to have 2 witnesses and 1 interpreter during the ceremony. At the end of the ceremony, you will sign the Ceremony Act which is translated into multiple languages and recognised as a legal wedding certificate all over the world. Once you are back in your country of residence, you may bring this to your local council to have it registered as well.
