Religious Blessings Ceremonies
Religious blessing ceremonies do NOT have legal validity and can be arranged with short notice everywhere in Tuscany. Whether in an intimate country chapel, a luxury suite facing the Ponte Vecchio or Duomo in Florence, a terrace with a view of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, a vineyard, sunflower fields in the Chianti hills, a Medieval castle courtyard, the Italian garden in a Reinassance villa, a frescoed hall of a famous city palace, a beach at sunset with a sea view…there are endless options for the most beautiful settings in Tuscany!
Planning a religious blessing ceremony is the perfect idea if you do not want to take care of legal aspects, if you are planning a destination wedding in Tuscany with short notice or if you have been already been married civilly in your country. It is also a great option if you eloped and would now like to to share your joy with family and friends or if you wish to celebrate your wedding anniversary with a romantic vow renewal ceremony.
We can arrange a religious blessing at an intimate country chapel or at any private location or reception venue. Tuscany is the perfect place to celebrate, walk down the aisle and exchange vows and rings under the Tuscan sun! Frescoed cloisters, Medieval palaces and historic castles will be the setting for your wedding in Tuscany and the perfect frame for breathtaking wedding pictures.
We will provide the officiant or priest to perform the blessing in your own language, we will arrange a parchment that you and your wedding party will sign, to be kept as special memory of your day. A blessing ceremony can also be personalized in any way you wish: you can add personal moments like unity candles, personal poems or special readings symbolizing of your love and union. You are also free to choose the music and songs that best represent your bond.
With a religious blessing, your options are endless in terms of locations. You can rent a private villa or a country farmhouse in one of the great cities of Tuscany like Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza or one of the wonderful Chianti towns. Or you can choose one of the daily reception villas or castles to held the ceremony surrounded by art and history and celebrate with your closest family and friends.
What we will do for your religious blessing:
- Book the ceremony and reception venues
- Arrange the officiant or priest to perform the blessing in your own language

A blessing ceremony is usually very simple, but we still arrange a rehearsal of the ceremony to review the schedule and make sure no detail has been overlooked!
