Wedding location: superior style and elegance

Wedding in the city

If you dream of a glamorous, very stylish and, why not, slightly daring wedding, a ceremony in the city will fulfil your dream: a stylish metropolitan ceremony. The bride will wear a dress from the latest collection of her favourite young designer; she will dare to be different and have fun mixing the trends of the moment. No excess, except for the dizzy high heels, of course. Trendy and couture accessories will abound, worn with originality and confidence like a Hollywood star on the red carpet.

Wedding in the countryside

For those who are looking for a non traditional, informal and genuine location for their wedding, there is nothing better than an exclusive wedding in the countryside. Back in touch with nature, you will have the opportunity to enjoy breathtaking views and magnificent sunsets watching the sun disappear behind the hills. Lots of greenery and flocks of swallows in the sky that will greet you from afar. If you are dreaming of all this, then a wedding in the countryside is what you are looking for. A trend that in recent years has been spreading among art and entertainment celebrities as it gracefully combines elegance and simplicity. Romance, genuineness and simplicity are the key words that will make your wedding an unforgettable day; however, be careful in choosing an exclusive and stylish location, otherwise you will end up inviting all your guests in a “trattoria”! For this type of wedding the right venue is a medieval village with a characteristic church in which you may have a religious ceremony celebrated. The rural yet sophisticated atmosphere will depend on the choice of details: flower arrangements with poppies, daisies, ears, herbs and candles.

Snow-white fabrics for tablecloths and upholstery and light colours will enlighten and enhance the scenery through the natural light. The ideal place for a wedding, combining elegance with style, Borgo San Felice is a 5-star Relais Chateaux location that will meet and fulfill all your wishes and those of your guests. Immersed in the absolute beauty of the Sienese hills of Chianti, at Borgo San Felice you may choose to celebrate your wedding ceremony inside the eighth century Romanesque church or in the Cappella della Maddalena, a small church dating back to the 1700′s completely hand painted by Enzo Cini. The latter, overlooks the main square of the village and, especially at night, becomes a very charming place where striking plays of light may be achieved with lighting. For those who choose a civil ceremony, every place of Borgo San Felice is available for the ceremony. Just rely on the expert eye of Vanessa (the manager of the locations and the events); together you will choose the ideal location from among gardens, terraces with unique views and pergolas that will welcome the couple and their guests when wows are exchanged.

A rich buffet of the typical products from the region interpreted with a touch of class will offer a real treat for the eye and the palate. The dishes will be like artistic compositions in which the locally sourced products will combine with natural elements, fragrant spices and may be even flowers and herbs.

There will also be more simple dishes such as PDO cold cuts and meats provided by the ancient Macelleria Marini which, since 1904, has offered the best Cinta Senese products in Tuscany and the high quality cheeses from Caseificio Corbeddu Sabtino, a short walk from Borgo San Felice, served with jams and concentrates produced by the Agricola San Felice which will enhance their flavor and scent. Francesco Bracali, a Michelin-starred chef famous all over the world, will fine-tune every detail of the menu with the bride and the groom so that it will meet their wishes and be fully attuned with the concept of the event, providing the guarantee of an original, exclusive and refined menu. Stylish and elegant arrangements will lavishly adorn the table, with a wide range of exclusive and unique options to choose from, while buffets will be served in the restaurant area of the village, the Poggio Rosso, overlooking the pool, in the garden or under the pergola. Your wedding will also be an entertaining and fun party; you will have the full support of a highly qualified and professional staff that will promptly meet all your needs to ensure your guests enjoy the party and have fun. You will be able to organize concerts, events, fireworks and all that you have in mind for your special day.

A chic alternative: the Wedding Picnic

Do you want to impress your wedding guests with an absolutely alternative venue? If you wish your wedding to be a “casual” event and you feel like celebrating in a more relaxed and laid-back atmosphere while not renouncing the touch of elegance typical of a wedding party, Borgo San Felice offers an exclusive alternative to the traditional wedding. We are talking about the wedding picnic, in the style of “Le déjeuner sur l’herbe” by Manet. An original, casual and absolutely exclusive solution. If you like the idea but don’t know where to start, don’t worry, Borgo San Felice Realais Chateaux has been organizing picnics for years in the Chianti regions, including right in the middle of vineyards and olive trees.

You will find wide open spaces, a large lawn for laying out a Scottish plaid or linen covers and, why not, large pillows and beanbags. However, if you prefer that your guests are comfortably seated, you may choose to set up long tables on the grass with old-tavern style checkered linen tablecloths, and vintage silverware. For the menu you may arrange for some baskets in Little Red Riding Hood style or prepare a buffet at your choice. There will be plenty of treats and delicacies, like vegetable quiches, cheese, cold cuts, dips and timbales and all the finger food dishes that the chefs will create for you!

As an interesting alternative to the traditional cake you may offer cupcakes and fruit tarts with jam made by Agricola San Felice. In a relaxed and informal atmosphere you may also enjoy the barbecue area of Borgo San Felice and throw an original barbecue party later in the evening.

And when the party is over? 29 rooms and 17 suites will welcome your guests in a dream setting. For the first wedding night, the Prestige Suite is the ideal choice for the newly weds, who will enjoy the refined and romantic atmosphere of the magnificent private terrace overlooking the Chianti hills; here, the couple may also enjoy their first breakfast as husband and wife. It’s easy to fall in love with such a beautiful place where you can also pamper yourself with high quality spa treatments and a heated swimming pool. At Borgo San Felice you may offer your friends and family a unique experience far exceeding the one night wedding party. Horseback riding, biking, relaxing as well as a Ferrari tour or even a helicopter ride will add a touch of elegance and style and make your wedding day unique and memorable for everyone.
