"Soaring out of the Tuscan hillside this regal medieval villa is surrounded by quintessentially Italian countryside and the allure of Florence nearby. Think sumptuous decor, domineering architecture and traditional artwork in abundance."
Soaring out of the Tuscan hillside with the purity of a dove and the majesty of a regal retreat this medieval villa is surrounded by quintessentially Italian countryside. The charming allure of Florence and its vibrancy is only a 15 minute complimentary shuttle ride away; but if you prefer to enjoy the seclusion of your venue, you can get lost amidst the majesty of the hotel’s extensive 12 acre landscaped parkland.
Il Salviatino oozes class and opulence from its 15th Century walls. If Downton Abbey ever took a turn in the Tuscan air, this would be the residence of choice. With sumptuous decor, domineering architecture and traditional artwork in abundance this is a wedding for those wanting to be waited on hand and foot in ultimate Tuscan luxury.
Embrace the safety and seclusion of the Fiesole hills as you enjoy a private wedding shared only with each other or take full advantage of the sumptuousness surroundings and host a lavish soiree for up to 200 guests. With the villa offering a range of settings for your nuptials, both inside and out, your wedding will be as beautiful as the lavender and rose gardens that frame it.
The hotel offers two venues for you to entertain your guests: the more relaxed La Terrazza is Il Salviatino’s alfresco wedding breakfast option with a view of Florence’s Duomo; whilst the grandeur of Le Serre might suit a more formal occasion. Both restaurants will delight your guests with traditional Tuscan gastronomy which you may wish to digest on the stunning balustraded balcony of the hotel bar as you toast to your future.
Sink into the leather sofas of the library as you delve further into a world of escapism or treat yourself to some Spa time as you prepare for your big day. A picturesque pool area (open April – October) and surrounding gardens provide the perfect excuse to laze under the Tuscan sun. With 61 rooms – each benefitting from sit down rain showers and Nespresso coffee machines – you can share the high life with up to 122 of your wedding guests.
Italy’s Tuscany region is beautiful in all four seasons, however many venues and hotels close during the winter months for yearly refurbishment works when tourism is particularly low. The spring months during April-May can offer pleasant temperatures in the low 20’s, blue skies and bountiful spring blooms, but rainy days are also inevitable. The summer months of June-August bring long hot summer days and warm evenings, perfect for al fresco dining. The autumn is the perfect time to host an intimate dinner celebration by open fires and views across the vineyards with their turning gold and red leaves.
Civil services and renewal of vows can be carried out in various locations at Il Salviatino. However, for couples requiring a religious ceremony then there are a number of churches located nearby. Namely San Martino a Maiano church approximately 3 minutes drive from the hotel and a host of churches in central Florence city.
For civil ceremonies Fiesole Town Hall located just 10 minutes away or Florence Town Hall approximately 20 minutes away are both possible options.
The following information is for guidance purposes only and will differ according to your nationality. To legally wed in Italy you will need to contact the local comune (town hall) before making any plans to find out about local marriage laws, including what documents you’ll need. You will need to get a certificate of no impediment (CNI) from the authorities in the UK to prove you’re allowed to marry. Your partner will need to follow the same process to get their own CNI. You can normally get a CNI by giving a notice of marriage at your local register office or registrar in the UK. A CNI issued in England, Wales or Northern Ireland is valid for 6 months. A CNI issued in Scotland is valid for 3 months. They’ll post your notice, and as long as nobody has registered an objection after a specified number of days (normally 15 or 21), they’ll issue your CNI.
While you’re waiting for your CNI, you and your partner will need to make a statutory declaration before a solicitor or public notary. The Italian authorities will need this in addition to your CNI.
You’ll need to get your statutory declaration and CNI ‘legalised’ (certified as genuine) by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO). You’ll also need to get your CNI translated and sworn before the Italian courts or an Italian Justice of the Peace.
The names on all documents you provide must appear exactly as they do on your passports - if not, the authorities may refuse to allow the marriage to go ahead. You may need to provide evidence if the name on your passport is different to your birth certificate (eg marriage certificate or deed poll).
You can deposit your marriage certificate at the General Register Office (GRO) in the UK for safe-keeping after your wedding - this isn’t a legal requirement. Check with the commune to see if they can issue a multilingual marriage certificate for you after the ceremony. If not, the certificate will have to be translated into English.
Please note that at the current time of writing same sex marriages are not officially recognized in Italy.
