Tips for a successful Wedding in Certaldo
For a start the hamlet can be reached via a Funicular which is something similar to a sky cab that goes on tracks. A good way to impress your guests right from the start. Kids love it and adults do too!
Pick a date in Spring or late Summer ( from April to Sep-Oct ) for your wedding when you have more chances to enjoy lovely sunny days.
Choose a good professional photographer. You do not want to miss out on the opportunity of having a professional photoshoot in Certaldo. Even if you are not so keen on pictures, you owe it this meaningful day and the place which frames it. You can always ask the photographer to do a reportage style photoshoot as opposed to a staged style one.
Recommend your guests to get to the Town Hall a bit in advance that they usually do when they are at weddings back home. In doing so they can enjoy a glass of local wine while waiting for the bride to arrive in one of the bars on the way to the Town Hall.
A Wedding in Certaldo is certainly an event to remember not just for you but also for your guests
Wedding in Certaldo and wedding planning
We always recommend to hire a local wedding planner as there are quite a few Italian red tapes that if you are not aware of could cause you some last minute panic which you want to avoid on your wedding day.
