Our dream wedding
My husband and I decided to get married in Italy about a year ago and we tied the knot in Tuscany in Sept 2018. I worked with a wedding planner throughout the process but selected the venue, Castello Vicchiomaggio, myself before we began working with her.Sent on 01/12/2019
I worked with Sandra, who oversees events at the Castello and she was so easy to work with, incredibly organized and accommodating when we arrived prior to the wedding.
The venue itself is a dream. The Castello sits up on a hill overlooking the surrounding vinyards and made for a breathtaking wedding location and fulfilled everything we had imagined. We hosted 50 guests and the castle had enough rooms to fully accommodate our immediate family and friends for 3 nights plus a great infinity pool to occupy them during the day. In addition to the space, the food was phenominal and all of our guests couldn’t stop talking about it throughout the weekend. The in-house chef was incredibly experienced and wow’d the entire party with everything from the dinner itself to the cake and wine.
It’s only been a few months and we are already dying to return. I would recommend Castello Vicchiomaggio to anyone who is looking for a charming, historic location for their dream wedding. We are based in NYC, admittedly selective and particular and we wouldn’t have changed a single element.

More than a dream wedding
Where do I begin? I cannot say enough amazing things about Castello Vicchiomaggio and all the staff. My now husband and I had our wedding at Castello Vicchiomaggio on August 18, 2018. We spent Thursday through Sunday at the Castle with 30 of our closest friends and family. From arrival to departure, Sandra and Delphine were so welcoming and accommodating- making everything so easy and relaxing. The rest of the staff, from chefs to our wedding servers, to the grounds crew, know exactly what they are doing. The castle itself is very well kept, the food is excellent, and the wine is truly award winning. It’s so good, we now buy cases to serve at our family restaurant in CT! And I can’t forget to mention the infinity pool that overlooks the beautiful hills of Tuscany. It provides the perfect spot for all to relax before the big day.Sent on 01/09/2019
The wedding itself was picture perfect. The venue provides a truly beautiful Tuscan setting, with historic touches. The castle comfortably fit all 30 guests, where each guest had a bed, but it could hold more if needed. We had a Catholic ceremony in the Church of Santa Maria. This church is a true historic gem! I was worried since it was hot outside, the church would be too hot for guests. It wasn’t. The church keeps quite cool. The bar and food service during cocktail hour and our reception was flawless. Everyone was professional and on top of it all. We held our cocktail hour in the garden, the reception outside on the main gravel patio, and dancing outside on the covered patio near the garden.
Castello Vicchiomaggio makes you feel like family. Did I mention my husband’s mother forgot a carry-on bag at the castle and they mailed it to us?! Bottom line, I would highly recommend this venue and tell you not to look anywhere else if planning a wedding in Tuscany!
