Villa San Michele

Directory of Services

The perfect “I do”    
Villa San Michele is positioned in beautiful gardens—a truly romantic setting. We have everything needed to make your wedding experience unique—exceptional cuisine, magnificent views and attentive service.

Bride and bridesmaid can prepare for the big event in their suite, relaxing with in-room spa treatments and taking full advantage of our beauty experts. Your marriage can be celebrated on the Villa's highest garden terrace, beside the infinity swimming pool, followed by a party in the beautiful Loggia with breathtaking views over Florence. A wedding to be remembered!

Flowers & Decorations

The manicured Italian Gardens at Villa San Michele bloom all year round and, together with the centenary wisteria that covers an entire side of the hotel, create wonderful backdrops to your photos. Our wedding experts will help you choose the perfect flowers to decorate the venue, the reception tables and for the bride’s bouquet.

Equally important are the decorations - our team of specialists will be glad to give you ideas on how to personalise the venue, with candles, balloons or fireworks in the garden - let your guests be totally amazed!

To record the best moments of your day we can organise a professional Photographer or Video-maker. From the bride's preparations to the ceremony itself, the photographer will capture every moment

Party Ideas
Reinaissance Wedding
Recreate the Renaissance atmosphere that still enlivens Florence, and celebrate a wedding in true Medici style. Our events team can dress the Villa with 16th-century-style decorations, organise costumes for your guests, devise a Renaissance menu and choose authentic music for a wedding with a difference!

Garden parties

Our beautiful Italian Gardens are the perfect setting for your marriage. We can organise an al fresco blessing, with the bride arriving directly from the Limonaia Suite, followed by cocktails by the spectacular infinity pool and the wedding dinner in the enchanting Loggia overlooking Florence.
