Castello di Celsa weddings are ideal for anyone that likes the idea of getting married in a stunning castle in Tuscany. The castle lies not far from Siena and offers seclusion and privacy without being remote. This really is a fairy tale castle fit for a princess.
The castle offers stunning architecture with immaculate gardens, together these make it a truly impressive venue for your wedding in Tuscany.
Our Castello di Celsa wedding takes place in early October. You can tell it's fall as the ivy that covers the castle is turning red. The temperature during the day is very pleasant with cooler temperatures in the evenings. The bride and groom prepare in the two separate wings of the castle. They have some of their friends and family staying with them and the other guests will arrive later in the day for the ceremony and reception.
A wedding at Castello di Celsa embraces the beauty and atmosphere of the location. Most wedding ceremonies take place in the Italian gardens. These make for an unforgettable backdrop to your intimate Tuscany castle wedding ceremony.
After the wedding ceremony there is a drinks reception accompanied by a jazz trio, everyone loves the location and is having a wonderful time. The exquisite fresh local produce is presented in an elegant way with waiters and staff looking after any special requests. At the bar there's prosecco or you can order a cocktail from one of the barmen.
With the family photos taken the photographer takes the couple for some portraits around the gardens. A Castello di Celsa wedding is an incredible opportunity for any photographer and it's also so convenient as a venue as you can find so many beautiful spots without having to leave the property.
Just after sunset the wedding reception starts. We have a transparent marquee with fairy lights and heating elements as at this time of year the temperature drops in the evenings and it also becomes humid. The food is served quickly, the speeches are short but heartfelt and entertaining making for amusing interludes between courses of deliciously authentic Italian food.
After the dinner we all move inside the castle to the courtyard. This is a suggestive location that adapts very well for the party. First we have the cutting of the traditional Italian wedding cake. The guests all have sparklers and after cutting the cake there's more prosecco for everyone.
The first dances that follow are all emotional and there are many tears from guests and parents, but these are all tears of joy!
To liven up the evening as well as an excellent DJ they have a live drummer and saxophonist that interact with guests and get everyone on the dance floor.
