Choose the Tuscan village of Montalcino as your special wedding destination. Situated at less than one hour from Siena and just above 1,5 hours from Florence, Montalcino is an antique medieval village, surrounded by vineyards (the famous Brunello wine), olive trees, thick forests, that give to the entire area that typical Tuscan look.
Wandering along the streets of the little town, you can admire many medieval architectural monuments, starting from the city walls that still have their original gates and part of the great towers, then coming across you will see the Palazzo Comunale (Wedding hall), the Cathedral and many other historical buildings. Photos of your Wedding day around the small streets of town are a must after the ceremony, little workshops with handcrafted products and specialty stores will sure attract your attention.
In Montalcino, civil weddings are performed inside the 13th century Palazzo Comunale, an ancient building overlooking Piazza del Popolo, its façade adorned with coats of arms and with a clock tower joint to a lovely loggia with arches from XIV-XV century.
The Wedding Hall is still decorated with its original frescos and a table of XIX century is used for the celebrations.
For your civil wedding in Montalcino, a sworn declaration is required 2 days prior to your Wedding date. Wedding ceremonies are held from Monday to Friday mornings and Tuesday and Thursday in the afternoons.
During the ceremony music entertainment can be organized to your choice. Your civil wedding ceremony can be personalized with your own vows and eventually readings after the standard civil rite.
