Wedding venues in Siena Italy

If I had to list all the fantastic venues where I have had the honor of planning weddings, one article would not be enough. All of Tuscany, and in particular Siena and the Chianti area, is full of fantastic wedding venues: villas, mansions and farmhouses.

Below you will find a small selection of some wedding venues in and around Siena.


Villa Dino

Villa Dino is an exclusive country resort in close proximity to Siena.
This beautiful property is structured in different areas. Gardens with ancient trees, terraces, a relax area with two pools and a bar; a restaurant, a wine cantina, rooms, suites and apartments characterized by Tuscan furniture to welcome guests even after the ceremony. All rooms offer beautiful views of the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the estate.

The in-house restaurant offers delicious Tuscan dishes and uses seasonal ingredients from its own vegetable garden and local farms. The authentic and recently restored winery is also available for your wedding and creates an unforgettable experience with its historic atmosphere.

This beautiful farmhouse, once a monastery, is located not far from Siena and is surrounded by vineyards.

Every corner in this venue lends itself to a wedding shoot: the road lined with tall cypress trees leading up to the farmhouse, the infinity pool from which there are spectacular panoramic views of the hills in the distance.
The lawn next to the main building is perfect for an outdoor wedding reception.
The property consists of six modern, tastefully furnished apartments that can accommodate your destination wedding guests. The farmhouse offers guests wine tastings and a tour of the vineyards.

Villa Carlotta has been recently restored and is perfectly suited for a wedding reception. The interior halls with beamed ceilings and stone walls provide an elegant and contemporary setting. The panoramic terraces, courtyard or lemon house lend themselves to outdoor aperitifs.

Planning your wedding at this villa also means being able to taste the delicious cuisine of Carlotta, a chef renowned throughout Italy.


Villa Catignano

Villa Catignano was the venue for the marriage of Jade and Jamie, a wonderful couple who hired me for the entire planning of the most important day of their lives.

Read on, I will tell you about it in detail in the next paragraph.


Jade and Jamie’s wedding at Villa Catignano in Siena

When Jade and Jamie called me to organize their wedding in Tuscany I was aware that they had already booked one of the most wonderful villas in Tuscany, Villa Catignano.

Nestled in the heart of Chianti, Villa Catignano is a magnificent 17th-century villa. Its classic beauty creates the perfect setting for an exclusive Tuscan wedding.
Villa Catignano is framed by the Italian Garden and the so-called English Woods. And among the olive groves, the Viale dei Cipressi leads to the swimming pool area, from which there are breathtaking views of Siena and its surroundings.

As we started emailing more than two years before the wedding we had plenty of time to organize any detail of the different moments.

They wanted a big wedding with all their family and friends and the whole event lasted three days: all guests arrived at the Villa from Pisa and Florence airports with a private shuttel service and for their welcome dinner they had a nice pizza party in the cottages garden. Aurora catering prepared pizza from the oven in the garden while the guests enjoyed watching a movie on a screen in the garden.

On the wedding day the bridal party went to Jade’s suite to help her gettig ready for the big moment: it was a quite relaxed moment, they had breakfast delivered in the suite and there was also tiem for some glasses of Prosecco! Jamie and his bestmen went to take some pictures in the living rooms covered with frescoes, this is one of the rooms I like the most!

As the weather was perfect we were in time and the guests started sit down as planned: when Jade came off from the Villa she was stunning in her bridal dress.

The civil ceremoy held with th Pastor was very emotional and just after saying “I do” the couple was ready to go arond and take some pictures with the photographer Andre Corsi.



The aperitif was served in the Renaissance garden and all guests enjoyed the variety of Tuscan nibbles and the canapes served by the waiters.


But the time to sit down for dinner arrived and the couple wanted to start this special moment with a speech: the table and all the grounds were finely decorated from Agriflor. The palette of colors choosen by Jade went from white to beige and from light lilac to brownish with lots of roses and lysiantus matching perfectly with the long stem candles.


The dinner was served under a ceiling of string lights in the Villa courtyard but the best moment arrived when the bride changed her dress to get into the dancing area! The band started playing disco music and the open bar organized by Eventin provided great cocktails to keep all guests dancing. Bride and Groom asked specoifically to have a neon light in the dancing area with “The Beasons-Brown” written and it was really a nice touch added to the athmosphere. It was a really magical night and I am sure that not just Jade and Jamie but all the guests will rememebr it forever!
