An intimate spring wedding in Florence

My fiancé and I want to have a real, legal, marriage ceremony anywhere in Tuscany on May 20, 2017. We do not want a symbolic wedding. Could you please find out if it would be possible to organize for that on the desired day? We will be a group of 6-10 people, so we only need a small space. Let me know what you need from me to work on this.

Thank you, 

Jeannie"

Traditionally, in Italy, legally binding weddings must take place either inside a church or at the respective courthouse. This being the case, procuring the documentation compulsory in Italy along with the necessary paperwork via the US consulate required a bit of Bonartulia magic. That being said, the result was truly inspiring.

As desired, Jeannie and Thomas were married in front of their nearest-and-dearest, during a legally binding civil ceremony at Antico Spedale del Bigallo (a quaint, stone building dating back to 1245, surrounded by olive groves and a breathtaking panorama of Florence.)

Afterwards the intimate group enjoyed cocktails and a photoshoot in the Four Seasons’ Giardino delle Gherardesca, a hidden gem in downtown Florence.

The enchanted evening ended a sunset dinner along the river at Harry’s Bar: good food, warm spring air, wine, and so much laughter.
