Monteriggioni wedding near Siena

stunning room at Borgo Stomennano

This couple from London decided to have a destination wedding in Italy at Borgo Stomennano. I love this venue as for me it is a venue with incredible atmosphere; the interiors, gardens, driveway, views and hospitality are nothing short of exceptional.

For those wishing to get married in a church, you can visit Monteriggioni and its Romanesque church, you can find it in the middle of the main square of the medieval walled town. You can arrive there in less than 5 minutes the villa. So for anyone wanting a religious church this could be an ideal solution.

If you prefer to have a garden wedding in Italy then Borgo Stomennano has plenty of beautiful locations in its gardens. As you stand in front of the villa and face it, the villa has two sides the left and right. In front of the left side, which is the main villa with the beautiful rooms and frescoes, period furnishings and rich interiors you will find a lovely lawn area with a fountain and a stone bench recessed into the wall as a focal point. This Borgo Stomennano wedding gallery below features a wedding ceremony in this particular garden.

The gardens are tiered and some people choose to have the ceremony on the upper level. More often than not on the right-hand side (as you look at the villa). Finally, you can also consider using the right side of the gardens (once again the right side as if you were standing in front of Borgo Stomennano), on the lower level there is a lawn and some couples choose to have their ceremony under the large oak tree. I have photographed weddings in each of these locations so I can explain to you the differences, benefits, and disadvantages of each one.
