In addition to the traditional farmhouses one expects, there are many monasteries and castles that have been converted into villa style hotels for a more majestic experience. A symbolic, Jewish, Hindu, or non-denominational Christian ceremony can be held anywhere on site. Some locations will have a private Catholic church on the villa grounds where the wedding can be celebrated, but for most there will be a charming country church or a spectacular cathedral in the near vicinity for the celebration of the wedding. Most civil ceremonies would need to take place in the designated civil hall of a small, historic town nearby and not at the villa itself. But there are some exceptions.
The season in Tuscany is from April 1 through October 31 and most villas are only open during that time although there are some exceptions. While it’s true that the summer months will be hot in the afternoons, they will have ideal weather in the evenings for the dinners outside. The solution to a hot day is an afternoon pool party! September is generally warm and sunny and when the grapes are harvested. October is considered off season and it is unlikely that the dinners can be held outside unless arrangements are made for a tent with heat lamps.
