Castello di Vincigliata Weddings

The Castello di Vincigliata is one of the most popular wedding venues of Florence. Besides the chance to have garden ceremonies with a view, the castle can host parties worthy of a king in the suggestive courtyard. Impossible not to fall in love with it if you’re planning a destination wedding in Florence.

Among the mild hills of the Fiesole countryside, a few minutes from the centre, you might see a tower plunged into beech trees. It’s the old castle still in a perfect shape nowadays. The building has all the features that you might expect: thick wood doors, stone walls covered by ivy, a vast inner courtyard and a beautiful park at the bottom.

Your wedding photos couldn’t be more enchanting here. The rooftop and the cloister look like they had built for wedding photographers only, and your portraits might benefit from the magic light of Tuscany, always enchanting!
