Cortona: an authentic and entertaining “Village Wedding”!

wedding in tuscany: a dream

Getting married in Tuscany is a dream!
Is there someone who would ever state the contrary?

Tuscany offers an amazing range of venues to cater for any taste, style, budget and destination.
Thanks to our company offices located in Florence and Cortona, we have hand-picked over the years many stunning wedding reception venues all over the region with special attention to those where couples have also the possibility of performing the legal religious or civil ceremony on site.
However this is possible only in a restricted number of locations so in case the venue doesn’t offer this option, we rather opt
for a different type of ceremony preferring a blessing or a symbolic ceremony instead.
As a matter of fact these types of ceremonies can take place nearly in any venue with available space and possibly scenographic areas.

For those couples who want to incorporate the true essence of the Italian town they are getting married in, we suggest to go for a “Village Wedding” formula, a very authentic and entertaining way to celebrate the wedding savoring the real Italy!

This is a natural choice when you decide to hold your wedding in a town like Cortona!
Gently placed in a dominant hilly position and surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, Cortona is a well preserved medieval hamlet with walls dating back to the 5th century B.C. that recently became famous with the publication of “Under the Tuscan Sun” of Frances Mayes.
The views of the Valdichiana plain and of Lake Trasimeno from the town are just spectacular.

A wedding in Cortona has a unique feeling and it is simply beautiful!

The wedding hall in Cortona is really romantic; the ancient Palazzo Comunale in the main square hosts the town council since the 12th century.
Cortona has also some really beautiful churches where Catholic weddings can be performed; medieval, roman, gothic and renaissance styles to suit any taste!

Cortona is fond of weddings, from the mayor who often joins bride and groom in a wedding toast after the ceremony to locals who can’t do without cheering and clapping when a bride is in town.
Before heading to the reception venue enjoy a Prosecco in the main square, the perfect frame for memorable and vintage style pictures and then a walk in the winding medieval streets paved with large cobblestones up to the medieval walls to have some dreamy pictures in front of the great Tuscan landscape! It will be an experience you’ll never forget!

Food lovers will be spoilt for choice; whether you are fancying a fine top restaurant or on the contrary, a rustic traditional taverna then Cortona has an unbelievable array of indoor and outdoor options. Whatever style you’ll go for the cuisine is always based on genuine local ingredients: mouthwatering cheese and Tuscan salami and ham, home made fresh pasta, roasted meat, fish, grilled vegetables and of course amazing local wines like Montepulciano or Brunello Montalcino.

         Luxury hotels, charming B&Bs or panoramic estates to cherish your first night as husband and wife, Cortona offers just about anything!

Incredibly all roads are pedestrian, forget about the car and busy cities you can come here and just relax, living and enjoying the real Bella Italia!
