Our fabulous wedding at the Castello di Montignano
If you are reading this review, you may be considering to get married at the Castello di Montignano. Then let us give you an advice based on our experience: stop thinking, just do it! We first visited the Castle in December 2013 and then visited several other places in Umbria. We liked the region and all places we visited were nice, but the castle of Montignano had something special... And we went for it. I am Italian and my wife is Hungarian, but we live in London, so we were quite nervous about the idea of organizing a wedding from abroad and on the top of that, 8 months before the wedding we had a baby... So we really needed help. When we visited Montignano, we met Claudia. She is the director and wedding planner at the castle. Must say that we both thought right away that she was good and could have helped us as we wanted, but back then we could not know that she would be far above our expectations. The wedding was a fabulous: 3 days of great party and Claudia helped us with every single detail until the last minute of our event. She was always there and made the all organization of the event quite smooth ( we met 3 times and had 5 or 6 calls). Claudia went the extra mile for every single request we had from the hairdresser to the videographer. She gave us few good options and guided us towards the best for us. No surprises, no panic. Claudia is THE best in her job. We would like to take this opportunity to thank her, Beatrice, Elena and all the amazing staff of Montignano for making our wedding such an incredible event that we will never forget.... Thank you so much for everything you did for us!!!!
The perfect wedding at Castello di Montignano
What can we say about this place? We visit Umbria at least twice a year to see friends and love the area so much we knew we had to get married here. Castello di Montignano was the first venue we visited and we fell in love straight away, no other venue came close. The Castello itself has been beautifully restored, by the talented Claudia, and looks almost as stunning as the views of the valleys and hills that surround you.
Claudia, Beatrice and the team could not be more helpful and managed to put together the wedding of our dreams after only a couple of face to face meetings and sharing ideas on dropbox. They know their business very well and gave us so many options of how best to use the Castello. We were struggling with what music should we have at the reception and Claudia pulled the most amazing band out of her contacts book and we have never seen our friends and family dance so much ever before.
Now the food, Italians love their food, but the spread they put on was amazing Fish, breads, meats, cheeses ( if you get the option choose the handmade mozzarella balls - biggest hit of the day) and that was just the entrees. The actual meal just kept on coming course after course all of it spectacular, make sure you have stretchy trousers.
We cannot thank Claudia and her team enough for giving us the perfect day and something all our friends can't stop talking about even 2 months afterwards.
Best wedding ever!
We got married here on the 2nd July 2015 and many of our guests said it was the best wedding they has ever been to! Claudia and Beatrice planned everything to perfection! Beatrice was on hand for the 3days and so many guests commented on how organised and helpful she was! The castle really felt like home and no one wanted to leave, the staff were lovely and the food was delicious-again our guests said it was the best wedding meal they had had! I couldn't recommend this venue enough, it's a perfect place to get married with a church on site, beautiful grounds and a fantastic view! Having Beatrice and Claudia as planners meant I didn't have to stress as they took care of everything-flowers, decoration, music etc and it all turned out perfect. I wish we could do it all again!!
