Your Wedding in a Castle

The Castle’s history is also a history of weddings, like the one of Lucrezia, daughter of Alberto Firidolfi or that of Elisabetta, in 1852, daughter of Baron Bettino: today it can also become the story of your own wedding in this breathtakingly beautiful setting. 

You can organize your Wedding reception in Meleto Castle: the Castle’s entire Piano Nobile (a series of furnished and frescoed rooms), the Garden, the enchanting terrace overlooking the lovely scenery of the Chianti hills, the Giardino delle Erbe, the Gardino della Villa and the Scuderia, where you can relax or dance.

The event can be organized in accordance with your wishes: the aperitif in the Giardino delle Erbe, lunch or dinner in the Castle, dancing in the Scuderia; or the aperitif in the Castle, lunch or dinner in the Scuderia and the garden to relax and enjoy the sunlight. 

A ballroom, in the case of foul weather, or the garden are at your disposal for a party that can go on until midnight, or even later should you decide to book all rooms in the Castle.
And after the party, for an unforgettable night, the Baron’s chamber awaits... for some well-deserved rest!

A small private chapel which faces the yard in front of the Castle and seats approximately 20 people, is at your disposal for a symbolic religious wedding.
There are other lovely Romanesque churches in the neighboring area: the Church of Rietine, the Parish of San Giusto in Salcio, the Parish of San Polo in Rosso, the Church of Vertine, the Parish of San Leolino in Panzano, the Commendam of Saint Euphrosynus.

Symbolic ceremonies may also take place in the Giardino delle Villa overlooking the Siena countryside, in the Giardino del Castello or the Castle’s entire Piano Nobile.

Those who desire a Civil ceremony may go to the City Halls of Gaiole in Chianti, only 2 km from the Castle, of Radda or Castellina in Chianti, respectively 10 and 20 km away and lastly Siena’s Town Hall Palazzo, in the extraordinary setting of the Piazza del Campo, 30 km away.
