Perfect weekend!

La Tenuta di Papena really speaks for itself when it comes to the beauty of its setting and views, it's truly stunning. What sets it apart though really is the full planning service Ginevra provides. She was wonderful through the planning stage, but truly the weekend of the wedding went above and beyond to make it all go seamlessly. We knew everything was looked after and we could truly just enjoy ourselves without having to think of any of the logistical elements. She welcomed us into her family home with open arms, and made sure the most special weekend of our lives turned out exactly as we imagined, and for that we will forever be grateful.

Forever Grateful

It’s hard to put our experience into words. Tenuta Di papena is such a magical place and it has an energy that pictures just cannot fully capture. It felt like home as soon as we arrived and there was a peacefulness that helped calm any wedding nerves! Initially we had booked a third party wedding planner who unfortunately withdrew their services due to staff shortages. At the time we didn’t realise what a blessing in disguise this was as Gini quickly stepped in and took over for us. Our wedding would not have been possible without Gini, she was a huge support throughout the planning process and the week that we spent at Tenuta Di Papena. Our wedding morning was more stressful than usual due to extreme thunderstorms but Gini managed to organise everything around the weather, ensuring we could have our ceremony outside in San Galgano during a dry spell! Luck was definitely on our side but Gini’s flexibility and reassurance made sure we had the best chance of our dream wedding and a dream it was! Tenuta di Papena is a beautiful location with a magical vibe and it will always hold a special place in our heart.

The most amazing weekend

We got married in San Galgano and had our reception at Tenuta do Papena in August 2022. It was everything we had hoped and planned largely thanks to the wonderful Gini who helped us every step of the way. We had an early ceremony at 12 noon, we had our reception around the pool followed by live music in the courtyard to bridge the gap before sitting on the grass area for dinner which has the magnificent view and sunset. We couldn’t recommend all the suppliers highly enough and can’t thank Gini enough for all her help in making it the most incredible weekend.

Tenuta di Papena is the perfect place for a country yet stylish wedding in Tuscany. It is located few minutes from the famous Abbazia di San Galgano where you can solemnize a civil wedding in a roofless charming cathedral. The Tenuta is managed by the nicest people and can accommodate weddings regardless the weather for at least the capacity of the tenuta and up to around 50-60 people without need to rent a marquee in case of rain. The view from there is spectacular and the courtyard with the well is the perfect setting for the most typical wedding in Tuscany. I strongly recommend the Tenuta for intimate, classy and yet rustic weddings. Brava Ginevra!!!
