In the Villa Merlo Nero, the elegant Red Banquet Lounge, immersed in art and history,  offers the perfect atmosphere for a special dinner or a wedding celebration.

The handcrafted Chinese Room creates a romantic backdrop for unique photos and memories, while the Piano Lounge, with its antique and artistic furnishings offers a space for the ceremony or the dinner, in case of rain.

A covered Terrace overlooking the Maze Garden can host dinners for up to 40 guests or cozy aperitifs.

The Park surrounding the villa, offers different areas for symbolic ceremonies such as Giardino Fortuny, a very spacious lawn area with Tuscan steps which seem to be the favourite spot among our couples. A more intimate ceremony can be arranged under the Olive trees next to the swimming pool.

Religious ceremonies can be organized in one of the Florentine Catholic Churches.

For Civil ceremonies highly recommended is the Oratorio di Santa Caterina in Bagno a Ripoli which is located just a few km from our Estate  (among others).

Aperitives after the Ceremony, can be arranged either by the Pool or in the Maze Garden.

At Villa Merlo Nero, we recommend Boutique weddings up to 60/65 guests especially with regard to Plan B, or up to 80 guests if a Tent is booked.

Assistance can be provided throughout the organisation of the Event, with names of recommended vendors or names of professional wedding/event planners or coordinators.
