San Galgano Abbey weddings are special. This is a wedding location that really is unique, getting married at the abbey is an experience that you and your guests will always remember. The abbey is located in the Val di Merse and lies on flat ground surrounded by low hills. In April and May it isn’t uncommon to see the abbey surrounded by lush green fields perhaps full with poppies, these then turn to more golden hues in June. In late July and August you may be able to see the abbey surrounded by sunflowers. There is also a vineyard that overlooks the abbey and of course you don’t have to go far to find an olive grove.
San Galgano Abbey weddings are growing in popularity and it’s east to see why. The massive abbey allows you to get married in a church but still be outdoors.
Most people choose to get married in the main part of the abbey under the beautiful blue skies and shimmering Tuscan sun. Here is an example of an outdoor San Galgano Abbey wedding.
If you are unlucky enough to get rain on your wedding day there is still the possibility to get married at the abbey as the wedding could then held in The Chapter House which is a large covered side room overlooking the cloisters that still has its roof probably due to the fact that it’s ceiling is beautifully vaulted.
