Getting married in an Italian garden: ideas and advice

Getting married in an Italian garden, surrounded by nature is a wonderful experience. In this article we want to share some tips with all the couples about locations and settings that best suit a garden wedding in Florence.

Why organize an Italian garden wedding

The magic of an Italian garden, with its geometries of low buxus, roses and lemons, gives the right atmosphere to an event as special as marriage. It is an opportunity to offer your guests an outdoor day in a context of refined beauty.

Moreover, the gardens are easily customizable locations with decorations and fittings that reflect the taste of the couple and the style chosen for the wedding.

When to organize an Italian garden wedding

The best time to get married in an Italian garden, and therefore outdoors, is certainly spring, but also the early months of autumn. This is the moment when the Mediterranean climate can be more appreciated.

Our advice is to avoid the hot and stuffy summer days, but if you really don’t want to miss a wedding in the summer, better to have a ceremony in the late afternoon with sunset dinner and party in the night.

Florentine locations for marriage in an Italian garden

In the territory of Florence there are many locations with parks or green spaces perfect for getting married in an Italian garden.

We at Corsini Event.Group want to recommend two particularly suitable for this type of event and above all that we know well!

Wedding at the Corsini Gardens

It may seem strange to you, but, right in the center of Florence, there is a historic garden that is a real corner of peace. This is the Corsini Gardens, part of the larger complex of Palazzo Corsini al Prato.

Because of its location, this Renaissance garden is considered a true pearl of the city center.

The Corsini Garden is a very suggestive and exclusive wedding location. It is indeed a private place that is open to the public only on special occasions.

The garden of Palazzo Corsini offers several ideal areas for the organization of the various moments of marriage. For example it is possible to organize the wedding ceremony in the Italian garden, the reception in the limonaia and the cutting of the cake under the loggia.

Wedding in the gardens of Villa Corsini a Mezzomonte

The location of Villa Corsini a Mezzomonte makes available to couples many spaces both outdoors and inside the villa. In particular, couples wishing to get married in an Italian garden can count on two green areas: the Southern Italian Garden and the Pizzughe Garden.

The first one is perfect for hosting ceremonies or wedding aperitifs that also include a large number of guests.

It is adorned with a large fountain of water lilies in the center, with statues and handmade terracotta vases.

The second, smaller and more intimate, is located at the back of the villa, and enjoys a wonderful panoramic view. It is a beautiful example of the original Renaissance garden of the time and is a perfect setting for really evocative wedding photos. Nothing is missing: boxwood with geometric designs, fragrant roses, and romantic views of the Florentine hills.
