Whatever type of Italian wedding you are dreaming of we, at Casal dei Fichi, can help you make it a reality. We have organised weddings and civil partnership celebrations* for between 2 and 100 people. Whether you want a simple ceremony followed by an intimate meal in  an atmospheric restaurant or your wedding in a 16th century palazzo with a banquet in a formal dining room we can arrange it for you. If you have definite plans for your dream wedding we will help you to realise them and we are equally happy to offer ideas and suggestions based on our experience and your wishes.

How it works:

We always think it's best if we can meet each other first to talk through exactly what you want, show you the facilities and options available and to give you an opportunity to decide whether this is the place for you. We will gladly provide you with 2 or 3 nights accommodation, free of charge, in the mid or low season, so that you can get to know us and the area and meet some of the people who'll help create your special day.

What we do:

We will organise everything you need to make your day run like clockwork, including, but not restricted to:

  • Making all of the arrangements with the Comune (town hall).
  • Providing information and guidance so that you can obtain the correct documentation to get married in Italy.
  • Liaising with the British Consulate to deal with any queries or issues.
  • Work with all the local suppliers on your behalf.

And the fun things:

We'll show you the facilities we have on site for your reception, beautiful gardens for a buffet, a room for a more formal meal. If your group is larger you may prefer a bigger venue and we can introduce you to rustic rural locations with stunning views or elaborate venues with all the elegance you can imagine.

Many couples enjoy a pizza making party before the wedding, a great way to introduce people and catch up with everybody.


  • Flowers - simple, formal, exotic or pick you own wild poppies, sunflowers...
  • Transport - Of course we'll make sure you both get there on time. We can also organise a minibus for your guests, also airport collections etc.
  • Photographer - Do you want a luxury album or a CD to print yourselves.
  • Entertainment - Grand Opera, Italian folk, or an ipod connection - fireworks.
  • Beauty - Hairdresser, facials, nails, massage...
  • Cake - 3 tier, chocolate, fruit - you name it.

The list needn't stop there. If you want a bouncy castle or children's entertainer, a wine tasting for your guests, a balloon ride, whatever it is we'll organise it for you.

What will it cost?

Obviously that will depend on how many guests you have and how elaborate your wedding. We charge a fixed fee and having discussed your requirements we will provide you with an estimate of all of the costs, we don't mark up any of the prices so you simply pay for what you decide you want. We find that most people are pleasantly surprised with the cost, particularly when compared with the price of a wedding in the UK.

Our Philosophy:

We hope you have realised that our ambition is to provide the wedding or celebration of your dreams. We will happily give ideas and suggestions but will never interfere. We only organise a relatively small number of weddings so you will receive our personal attention and we still get a thrill from helping to make your day magical for you. If you think that Casal dei Fichi might be the place for your special day, please contact Bob or Ian.

* Unfortunately Italian law does not yet allow Civil Partnerships to be carried out here but that doesn't stop this being a great place to come and celebrate your union.
