Getting married in Tuscany at Christmas

Organising your wedding during the Christmas holidays means combining the best of local traditions, landscapes and gastronomy with the joyful emotions of the most magical time of the year.

Valdichiana Senese and its characteristic villages are transformed, decorated with many illuminations and flooded with the scent of cinnamon and mulled wine, the atmosphere is intimate and warm, and in every corner you feel pampered.

Everyone is excited about the arrival of the New Year and wishes to spend these special moments with their sweetheart and family. December is the month of peace and love and will certainly be perfect for celebrating your wedding!

Winter is also appreciated for the uniqueness and wide choice of fabrics, both for the bride and groom’s and the guests’ outfits. In short, the watchword for this time of year is elegance, even in the decorations for the setting: gold and silver details, lights and garlands to customise…

Of course, there will be no need to worry about bad weather, because the event will take place inside the selected location, allowing you the safety and romance of taking advantage of the view of the Tuscan hills, illuminated by Christmas lights.

Christmas weddings are also particularly appreciated for the palate. During this time of year, you have the opportunity to choose a menu characterised by rich local dishes, such as creams with seasonal vegetables, fine meats and traditional sweets: panforte, ricciarelli and cavallucci!The organisation of a Christmas Wedding, although so magical and special, is also very demanding, which is why you will need to
rely on a team of professionals who are able to support you in every choice and satisfy your every request, so that the most important day of your life will be as you have always dreamed it
would be!

From this need, Wedding in Valdichiana’s customised packages are born, complete or partial proposals for the organisation of your super event in Tuscany. Contact us now: hello@weddinginvaldichiana.com

2. Sharing experiences

The Tuscan villa is the ideal location and the most suitable for holding numerous ceremonies and receptions, as well as for hosting your closest guests in the days leading up to and after the wedding, offering them the opportunity not only to stay in super characteristic villas, but also to share with the bride and groom unrepeatable life experiences, discovering the territory of the Valdichiana Senese and its incredible beauty: medieval villages, natural landscapes, spas and museums… to name but a few.

Getting married in a castle: in Tuscany you can live the Fairytale

Every self-respecting married couple wants their wedding day to be perfect and unforgettable. For this reason, the choice of location must not only respect their tastes, but also be original and therefore unique!

If what you dream of for your day is to live a Fairy Tale, you have no choice but to choose a Castle as the location. Tuscany is teeming with similar locations and offers many different styles of castle, which is why we at Wedding in Valdichiana offer our knowledge to help you find the one best suited to you! …. here are some good reasons that will convince you!

1. Beauty and romance
Magical, solemn and romantic, a castle has always been considered the most exclusive place to get married and certainly the most loved by those couples who live their love like a fairytale! So, if you are looking for a location from another era in which to feel like a king and queen for a day, the castle is just right for you!

2. History and myth
Many castles in Tuscany have been inhabited by noble families, such as the Bandinelli family, and then over the years have been transformed into true luxury resorts in unique settings that still retain original frescoes and historical relics as testimony to the history and traditions of these aristocratic families.
For this reason, getting married in a castle in Tuscany means letting yourself be enveloped in the dreamlike atmosphere of the most beautiful fairytales made in Tuscany and breathing in a glorious past that has never faded.

3. Grandeur and practicality
Among the merits of castles, in addition to their history and majesty, there is certainly their practicality, given by the size of the many rooms of which they are composed, making them perfect and practical for organising numerous ceremonies. Moreover, most of the castles in the Valdichiana Senese area have bedrooms where both the bride and groom and their guests can stay overnight. Another reason why castles are practical is the presence of small churches, perfect for performing the religious rite.

4. Variety of styles
Tuscan castles are an ideal location for every type of wedding and every couple, because there are so many styles. There are more rustic stone castles, for the simpler and more traditional bridal couples, baroque and elaborate ones, for those who love glitz, and finally those immersed in nature for those who love the wide open spaces of the Tuscan hills.

5. Versatility of the seasons
There is no perfect season for getting married in a castle because all seasons are perfect. For those who prefer the colder seasons, castles have many indoor rooms, also equipped with large fireplaces for warmth. For those who prefer the warmer seasons, on the other hand, there are castles with outdoor courtyards and large gardens, ideal for celebrating outdoors.

These are just some of the reasons why it will be wonderful to choose a castle as your wedding venue, but if you are curious to learn more, let our experts guide you by sending an e-mail to: hello@weddinginvaldichiana.com.

Valdichiana Senese, the wedding destination in Tuscany you are looking for

o you want to give a touch of authenticity and uniqueness to your wedding? Come and discover Valdichiana Senese.

Known for its typical products such as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, pecorino cheese, aglione and much more, Valdichiana Senese has a lot to offer its guests. We will not dwell on the beauty of this land, the breathtaking views, the mild climate and the surprising colors in every season: we let you imagine them.
We want to give you 5 practical reasons why Valdichiana Senese is the wedding destination in Tuscany you are looking for.

We are all experiencing a period of great uncertainty. The Covid-19 emergency has taken away most of our security, especially in terms of travel and weddings.
Planning a wedding in the middle of a pandemic is daring, we know, but choosing the right staff makes everything much easier and less insane than it seems.
In Valdichiana we juggle well with cooking and art but what makes everything special is the love for hospitality that unites every single operator in tourism.
Everyone armed themselves with good will to redesign itineraries and programs to offer couples an equally exciting and authentic wedding, as well as in complete safety according to the regulations of the period.
The fact that it is a niche destination and the low population density have certainly made success easier; in fact, in summer 2020 several weddings have been celebrated despite the challenges that Italy was facing.
Therefore, by choosing the Valdichiana Senese, you will find full authenticity and extra flexibility.


In Valdichiana Senese we are spoiled for choice: Tuscan villas, farmhouses, historic buildings, castles, and much more.
The territory lends itself to the most disparate styles: do you have a very formal and elegant reception in mind? Well, you can choose between villas with unique gardens and historic buildings where you can breathe history and art.
Do you prefer something more country? There are farmhouses with breathtaking views and the atmosphere of an authentic Tuscany ready to be savored.
This versatility is also present in the suppliers of the area, each operator in the wedding industry has its own uniqueness that goes well with one of the many faces of Valdichiana Senese.


Valdichiana Senese offers entertainment 365 days a year. Each town has its own folkloristic manifestations spread throughout the 12 months. In addition, each season brings with it typical traditional products that are celebrated in the festivals organized precisely to let you taste the harvest or the production of that particular product.
From truffles in November, to new oil in October, the harvest, mushrooms, the Bravio delle Botti in Montepulciano in August, the Palio dei Somari in Torrita di Siena in March.
Every month in Valdichiana the villages are colored with flags, the drums resound and the alleys smell of delicious traditional recipes.
Getting married here means giving you and your guests a 360 ° experience of what Tuscany is all about.

The position of Valdichiana Senese is very strategic. It is an area in the open countryside yet not far from the cities of Siena, Arezzo, Florence, Perugia and Rome. The geographical position of Valdichiana, located right in the center of Italy, allows anyone to be able to reach it without too much effort. It is also well connected with Umbria and the Grosseto area.
It is very easy to reach it from the Milan, Rome, Pisa and Florence airports by car and along the A1 motorway or by train, since the Trenitalia Freccia Rossa high-speed train passes in the Chiusi-Chianciano Terme station.
When it comes to planning, we must also evaluate the logistics, and the Valdichiana Senese is just the destination you are looking for!
