Wedding venues: getting married at the museum

Wedding among art and history

You may be passionate or not about art history, but it is impossible not to be inspired by the rooms and atmosphere of a museum. The high ceilings, the walls covered with ancient paintings and the long corridors decorated by statues and sculptures can be an ideal setting for those who want to be surrounded by art to celebrate their wedding.
A museum is a magical place, where you can breathe history, what we have been and how we were. To celebrate in this enchanted place the “official” beginning of your future together, and of what you will be, means give even more magic to this day!

Wedding ceremony at the museum

Based on the latest trends, today there are many couples who choose to organize their wedding in the rooms of a museum. Organizing a reception in a museum means giving yourself and your guests an unforgettable experience, and to make your wedding a real immersion into art. It is indeed important to choose the right settings, which must be in line with a location already rich in itself, and the right colors to enhance them.

On the other hand, if you do not want to renounce to art and open air spaces, there are real en plain air museums that can become the perfect location for your wedding. Gardens adorned with statues and fountains, as well as historic amphitheaters and ancient parks, are well suited to ceremonies and receptions.

Museum locations in Florence

Our Florence, as the cradle of the Renaissance, can offer a great variety of options! For the civil ceremony, the City of Florence makes available to couples some of the wonderful halls of Palazzo Vecchio, former residence of the Medici and now the Town Hall: you can choose between the Sala Rossa, the Sala di Lorenzo il Magnifico, and the evocative Salone dei Cinquecento. This impressive salon in particular, can also host elegant and luxurious receptions, with the background of Vasari’s paintings and Michelangelo’s statues.

Getting married in a historic garden

Not only the Palazzo Vecchio, but also the Sala della Carità of the Bardini Museum offers the couples a valid alternative to celebrate a civil wedding immersed in the numerous paints on the blue walls. The Stibbert Museum instead, located outside the historic center and housing weapons and antiques, offers its space for sumptuous receptions, and provides in addition to the Salone delle Feste, also a Limonaia and the park outside, real open air museum! The Rose Garden, which provides the Municipality, is a valid alternative for those who want to enjoy a spectacular view of the city. But there are other possibilities liek the Giardino di Boboli, one of the major historical parks in Italy, or the Garden of Villa Bardini and the Torrigiani Gardens.
