A Wedding in Tuscany

The perfect place for a certain kind of Tuscan wedding

Please note: the next available wedding at Patrignone is in 2015.

If you are looking to get married in Tuscany, then you might want to consider a wedding at Podere Patrignone. Patrignone weddings are generally relaxed affairs, with lots of good food and wine served al fresco, maybe some dancing under the stars, maybe even some fireworks...who knows? That really is up to you. In any case, we're not really suited to formal, choreographed events, so if that's your dream, then there are lots of lovely places around so much more glam than our humble 15th century peasant farm.

We usually have a couple of weddings here every year (we set a limit on how many we do), and although they are a lot of work for us, they are fantastic fun and we love doing them.

There are some of the basics:

Have you thought about...?

Here are some practical considerations:

A reasonable budget for a beautiful but simple wedding for 30 might be:

a simple but beautiful budget
OptionsEuros €
Cost of ceremony in Siena € 1000
Classical guitarist or disco € 250
Italian-side paperwork expenses € 200 *
Arrangement, liaison, translation € 700
Accommodation bride and groom € 1050 **
Hosting fee for reception €1 950
Reception meal (30 heads) €2 400
Additional wine/champagne budget € 300
TOTAL €7 850

 

* as the rules have changed for 2014, this is an estimate, and will hopefully be much lower than this
** other accommodation is usually paid for by the guests themselves

Now, of course, there may be additional things to consider, like a rehearsal dinner/pizza, an evening torch-lit party under the stars, the wedding clothes, fireworks, rings, hair, flowers, photographers, transport, a wedding cake (or two), decorations, and so on, but we can help you do as much or as little of these as you like, with no additional pressure from us.

The important thing is that you get the day you want, no more no less. And you know what? In our experience most couples married here believe they got all they ever wanted here, and more, and for a great deal less money than they would have paid at home.
