For a fairytale wedding, one of the new hot places offered by Select Collection is a 16th century Palazzo in Florence, part of the fabulous Four Seasons Firenze. Brought into the 21st century with restored frescoes and luscious Rococo finesses, the palazzo is alive with romance.

Among glittering ballrooms and seductively gorgeous suites, the hotel also offers a tiny medieval chapel.

In this chapel you could say your vows, or maybe just have an intimate wedding dinner while 16th century angels hover over you. 

Two guests or a thousand?

As experts in couture travel, we have arranged intimate wedding celebrations here. But weddings of up to a thousand guests are not a problem. 

A big green park presents a romantic backdrop to Four Seasons Firenze,  with sculptures, fountains and giant trees, overlooked by al fresco restaurants and bars, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and garden spa.

This park comes in handy for marquees for large receptions or outdoor tables under the trees. 

Natural romance in abundance
For small weddings, you could dine romantically on a roof terrace overlooking the park. Menus can be drawn up under the guidance of a Michelin-star chef.

Couture wedding

Of course weddings are created by couture from an a la carte menu of possibilities. Select Collection will add on the details you want to make your own totally original wedding. Flowers, wedding cake, photographs, hairdos, and a big choice of live music forms from cello to harp, jazz to opera. Or of course a DJ. 

The couple’s room in the spa has a white and gold Rococo theme, where the couple can choose to prepare for (or recover from) the wedding with a ritual of treatments...

For sublime relaxation, rejuvenation and new life

When the prince met the princess…

What is more you would have to go very far to find more romantic fairytale suites for the newly weds. Or the entourage.

Tuscan honeymoon

And if you wish to escape to a more rustic Palazzo among Tuscan vineyards for your honeymoon, Select Collection offers a choice of romantic country hideaways. Tuscany was made for romance…
