AN IDYLLIC ELOPEMENT IN SAN GALGANO/BORGO SANTO PIETRO: DONNA & DAVID

This wedding has blown us away! We barely choke back tears when we heard the moving words that Donna and David said to each other during their wedding ceremony. 
Donna and David are from Melbourne, Australia; for their small celebration they chose Borgo Santo Pietro, a luxurious Realais in Tuscany placed just 30 km outside Siena and nestled in the heart of Tuscan countryside.
It was just the two of them  pronouncing their wedding vows on a small lake surrounded by willows, immersed in an intimate and suggestive garden: so touching!
The video shooting was set in the most incredible and impressive wedding location in Tuscany: the Romanesque San Galgano Abbey, an Abbey without the roof that began to ruin in the 15th century. Nowadays its external walls still stand in and  the floor is completely covered by grass. 
It’s this timeless atmosphere that makes this Abbey so special and unique!

A GLAMOROUS WEDDING VIDEO AT CASTELLO DI MODANELLA: CAROLINE & HENRY

When you adorn a perfect beauty with a romantic lace dress, a pair of Louboutin shoes and a silk pink and purple flowers bouquet - the result leaves everyone speechless!

Caroline and Henry from England chose for their destination wedding the small village of Modanella, dominated by the well-preserved 12th century castle. Situated in the Tuscan countryside, close to Rapolano Terme, Siena and Arezzo, this village is reknown for retaining the appearance of the real fortress.

The surrounding is no less spectacular: the landscape is dotted with typical Tuscan farmhouses, while rows of verdant vines stretch out as far as the eye can see.

The love of the young couple was celebrated with a simple but touching religious ceremony, in the charming 16th Century church next to the castle. Then, a mandolin player led all the guests to the beautiful garden where aperitivo was served.

The video and photo session took place in the castle as well - where else? No location could be more inspirational.

For the wedding dinner and party the castle was magically illuminated with a vivid pink light matching all the decor. The oval tables were topped with clusters of candles that enhanced the dreamy atmosphere of this timeless venue. The party was overwhelming! The first part of the evening was livened up by live music; later, when the DJ kicked off the dance party, everybody embarked on the dance floor.

AN INTIMATE SPRING WEDDING AT HOTEL TORRE DI BELLOSGUARDO, FLORENCE: APRIL & ANDY

Let’s start the new season with a very special wedding: a romantic elopement in a magical city, Florence!

April & Andy decided to skip the big celebration choosing to get married in the middle of their holiday in Italy. Their first aim was to celebrate their love with a more personal and intimate ceremony rather than traditional and, of course, to enjoy themselves! 

Hotel Torre di Bellosguardo in Florence was an incredible location not only for its perfect position that offers a stunning view on Florence but also for the variety of spots it provided: a lemon house for the bride and groom’s first look, a water-lily lake, a huge meadow and gardens of all kinds!

The first part of their celebration took place with Florence in the background while the rings were exchanged in a cosy small garden:
Isn’t it deeply romantic to say “I do”in front of a wonderful cherry blossom tree?

The video session was nothing but fun: look at how comfortable and relaxed they feel!

A destination wedding in Italy: what a great way to bring together family and friends from Japan, US and Singapore!
John and Chisato chose Villa Il Poggiale for their wedding: an authentic Reinassance mansion located in the heart of the Chianti wine-growing area, just a few Km from Florence; the perfect combination of historical charm and rustic heartwarming surroundings.
The ceremony was held in the fabulous garden just in front of the Villa -you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful setting- and ended with bride and groom walking down the aisle surrounded by soap bubbles blown by all their guests!
Chisato went for a mermaid lace gown with minimal accessories and white blooms, all to appraise her delicate oriental beauty;
the table decor was characterized by little olive branches, white bellflowers and rosemary branches on the napkins.
The videoshoot was set amongst olive groves trees and, of course, in the amazing garden: what a mesmerizing effect when the light seeped in through the trees at sunset! It was an intense magical moment!
The party, under the loggia of the Villa, kept people on their feet celebrating all night long.

Catherine & Philip from Melbourne were inspired to create a wedding imbued with warmth, sentimentality and fun. They fell in love with the typical rustic style of Tenuta di Corsignano, suggested by the wondeful wedding planners ann e elizabeth from Original Tuscan Wedding who worked hard to design an event infused with elegance and ease.

The ceremony was held in Radda in Chianti Town Hall; the videoshoot  partly occurred in the historical centre of Radda; after that it was great fun to see the couple riding in their vintage car around the most peculiar tuscan landscapes  near Radda and Castellina in Chianti.
Items added warmth to the reception: the wooded table covered just with moss and flowers, the lights onto the ceiling, the family polaroids.  
Everything about the day was so beautiful, but there was nothing more beautiful than Catherine’s radiant smile.

AN INFORMAL WEDDING IN PINK & GREEN: SERENA & FRANCESCO, SAN MINIATO, PISA, TUSCANY, 29.06.2013

Serena and Francesco wanted their wedding to be colourful, fun and playful.

Just get a look at their wedding video: it can prove they definetely reached their goal!

They wanted their guests to have a great time and feel the essence of this special day, so they organized games and tricks to get them involved, including a fantastic photobooth. It was a touch of genius to provide every table with disposable cameras: friends and relatives all left their mark flooding the couple with their priceless shots!

For the decòr they went for vivid colours - a strict pink and green theme for menus, centrepieces, invitations, flowers - combined with stripes and geometrical elements. A final hint of peach was added to the bouquet matching Serena’s shoes.

It’s no wonder the tableau marriage decorated with candies has totally blown us out! …and so did Serena’s fascinator, of course!

Enjoy!

A CLASSY CHEERFUL WEDDING IN A CHIANTI CASTLE: LUIZA & MARCO, CASTELLO IL PALAGIO, SAN CASCIANO VAL DI PESA, TUSCANY, 01.09.2013

Another wonderful castle in Tuscany, another sweet lovely couple, another dream wedding!

Cheerful, smiling and so beautiful: this is how we can describe Luiza and Marco…it was such a pleasure working with them!

They organized a big wedding party in the courtyard of Castello il Palagio, an ancient military stronghold in the heart of the Chianti district surrounded by olive trees and vineyards,  just 17 km from Florence, near Mercatale. 

The location was a magical backdrop for this bright sunny day at the beginning of September and the floral design work just enhanced the natural beauty of the place.

What impressed us the most was the immense amount of love and sweetness this charming couple had for each other and  in the videoshooting we just tried to stay true to the real feeling of the day. Happiness level was at its peak: we simply had to show it!

The dancing was totally fun and the wedding video speak for itself!

Just look!
