Ceremonies

Legal civil ceremonies can take place at one of the 3 places below:

    Capacity: ONLY B&G and 2 witnesses with translator and wedding planners. Just 2 chairs are included. (this is 10 minutes away - about 7 kilometers) followed by an aperitif back at Borghesi.
  • Abbadia Isola (a medieval Abbey along the via Francigena)
    Capacity: up to 80 guests with chairs - (this is 10 minutes - about 7 kilometers)
  • The Abbey of San Galgano (picturesque ruins of an ancient 13th century abbey)
    Capacity: up to 200 people but they only provide 60 chairs + a wood table for rings, bride's bouquet, etc. (this is about 30 minutes away - about 30 kilometers)


Blessings/Symbolic

Ceremonies without legal or civil restrictions, and therefore are performed by a Master of Ceremonies, rather than a clergyman or state official. The ceremony suits couples who have already had a civil or church ceremony, but is also perfect for those who wish to renew their wedding vows for an anniversary. Your blessing can be celebrated in various locations on the grounds.
  • In the gardens overlooking the hills - the grounds can be used for spectacular outdoor ceremonies with views over the Tuscan hills.
    Capacity: up to 100 chairs (white skirted chairs)
  • La Scuderia - in the event of bad weather, your ceremony can take place in the Scuderia room


Protestant ceremony

Without legal effects with English Speaking Minister (Church of England/CofE).

Note: This can take place at the Protestant Church in Siena or on the grounds of Estate Borghesi. In this case, you must do the legal civil wedding at the Town Hall prior to the religious ceremony. This can possibly be done in the morning of the same day as the religious ceremony or day(s) before. The church in Siena is a 45 min drive - about 40 kilometers.

Jewish ceremonies can take place at the Estate


Catholic weddings

Can take place in one of the churches in Abbadia Isola (this historical Borgo is part of commune di Monteriggioni). The churches are all a 10 minute drive - about 7 km away.
