If you want to officially register your marriage in one of the charming towns of Tuscany, we are pleased to offer you the option of holding your ceremony in one of Tuscany’s beautiful town halls – many of which are rich with history – in various locations. Your civil wedding in Tuscany will take place in one of the magnificent historical palaces that were once homes to rich noble families of the powerful Dukes of Tuscany. After all, every major Tuscan town had an autonomous center with its own government and its leader who sat in the most important building of the city, which are now used as city halls. With their high towers, proud facades, grand staircases, and originally frescoed halls, you will feel like the hero and heroine of of a film about medieval nobility. Such beauty and romance – this can only be a wedding in Tuscany.
Most of the town hall buildings are in the medieval style, made of stone, with a high central tower and, often, important family coats of arms on the facade. Inside, in the beautiful ceremonial hall, often with vaulted ceilings and frescoed walls, important meetings of the city council are often held as well as wedding ceremonies on certain days. Volterra, Pisa, Certaldo, Cortona, Arezzo and other towns of central Tuscany boast important historical buildings, which may be worthy of framing your wedding. Sometimes the town halls also have museums inside, such as the ones of Siena and San Gimignano. In others, such as the town hall of Lucca, the Municipality allocates wedding ceremonies in the graceful palaces of later periods. There is even the possibility to hold your civil wedding in a municipal garden or park dotted with elegant statues and picturesque fountains, accompanied by the sweet songs of birds.
Send us your inquiry and we will offer you a variety of wedding halls for the official wedding in Tuscany.
Having a wedding in a villa attracts many couples as it gives them the opportunity to organize everything in one place, from the ceremony to the banquet, from guest accommodation to active pastime, thus reducing the time and cost of travel. It should of course be noted that most of the villas can only hold symbolic ceremonies due to Italian law, but this option can still be very convenient for those looking to have their honeymoon at the site of their wedding. Some villas have been turned into small luxury boutique hotels whose rooms can be fully booked for weddings, providing an unforgettable, exclusive stay for you and your guests in the structure’s elegant surroundings. Some of the villas are owned by private families and offer several apartments, which are usually decorated in a typical Tuscan style. It is not uncommon that the owners produce their own wine or olive oil, or else have a home restaurant, where you can not only taste superb authentic Tuscan cuisine but also learn how to cook it, because often such places will happily organize cooking classes, a great way to have fun with your guests.
If you prefer to have a civil wedding, there are a number of villas in Tuscany that have signed agreements with their local town halls in order to officially register weddings held in their private villas. Please contact us, and we will be happy to help you choose the perfect villa for your wedding in Tuscany.
