Borgo Lucignanello hosts weddings and receptions for as many as 80 guests (40 of whom can be accommodated in the resort's apartments). Catholic marriage services can be celebrated in the hamlet's Church of San Biagio or in the equally enchanting Church of San Pietro in Villore, in nearby San Giovanni d'Asso.
For civil weddings, the mayor of San Giovanni d'Asso marries couples in a beautiful, frescoed room in the town hall. Symbolic ceremonies and simple blessings can be performed in the location of your choice: including Lucignano d'Asso's charming little private chapels.
