Luciana and Antonio is a lovely couple from northern Italy deeply in love with Tuscany where they have funds memories.
They decided to tie the knot surrounded by the whole family at the end of July, first with a civil ceremony in Siena in the beautiful Sala del Concistoro in the Palazzo Pubblico museum then having a party in a hamlet they reserved for the day, Borgo Vescine, a lovely borgo between Radda and Castellina in Chianti, surrounded by typical Tuscan woods, olive trees, vineyards and quietness.
Luciana and Antonio have already four children so it really was a family affair, moreover half of the family live in Sicily and the two days wedding party was also a way to stay with them and enjoy each other company. Luciana and Antonio wanted to have a party, elegant, but still a countryside wedding.
Borgo Vescine ‘s choice came after looking for many locations (almost six months around Tuscany looking for the best spot) and they won. They had the all family gathered there for the night then with two mini vans my assistants brought them to Siena for the ceremony.
Aperitif before, in splendid terrace surrounded by candles, music, laughs, dinner, cheers and dance: for decoration we opted for a series of bouquets on the table with chandeliers all along the table. Flowers were white roses, white hydrangea, and ivy.

San Vincenzo (St Vincent) is in the etruscan costa, below Livorno, in High Maremma. This is a historical village thanks to its closeness to Populonia and the gulf of Baratti.
This was the site where the misteriuos people of the Etruscan lived. The territory of San Vincenzo is a perfect beach spot for families, due to its long and white beaches but also because there are several natural park: it means that beside a beach vacation, there many archeological sites to see, such as Populonia, the ancient mines and few organic farmouses where they produce excellent extra virgin olive oil, honey and wine.
Where to marry
Rimigliano park with its long and dramatic beach which goes until the gulf of Baratti could be one of the location if you think about a blessing on the beach. For civil ceremony the town of San Vincenzo will be more than happy to celebrate the wedding (for civil weddings on the beach a special permission is to be asked).
Where is the party?
The Mistral is for infomal wedding and it will be completed renovated for next year, instead the first one, the Mariva a more formal and elegant but equally romantic and on the beach.
The Mistral is literally on the beach, you can sink your feet on the sand while you sip a glass of prosecco and eat some deliciuos local delicatessen while the photographer is busy to take as many pictures possible at the sunset. The sunset in Tuscany is amazing because you actually sea the sun going into the sea and it’s where the party start.
The Mariva is still close to the beach but it is the pinewood: cool air in the evening, few romantic and private spot to say “I do” while the cocktail can be served along the swimming pool and the dinner or lunch in their elegant restaurant.
If even the Kardashian’s clan decided to come to marry in Florence, there will be a reason. A thousand of reason, I should say. If you look at the picture posted on internet of Kim looking at the stunning view of Florence, you understand that people come here because Florence is the most beautiful town in Europe as Kanye West said in a recent interview.
Nothing or almost nothing came out for the ceremony: we only know that the guests were not that 600 something, but less, that Andrea Bocelli (he sang) and Ermanno Scervino were the only italians and that the wine was from tuscany and that lucky them, the days was gorgeous!
You can rent almost all the amazing sites of Florence according to a new policy of the town hall. The money will go for restauration of the historical buildings.
Eloping is the new trend in weddings and I am doing a lot! A couple who want to escape from the tourbillion of having a wedding in thier country decide to marry during honey moon and Italy is the first choice, even because form Italy you can go to Greece or malta or other european country.
As I said I did a lot in the past and I am doing this year and next year too. Its is not as hard as wedding planning a wedding with 100 guests but it is equally challenging and extremely romantic both for the couple and me that I have to plan it.
Often a couple decide to marry in the town hall or in church, sometimes they don’t even have two witness. They just need a nice place to have an intimate reception, flowers (you cannot do without them), a photographer and of course make up and hair.
Plan your eloping, I have some dates available in September and October too, for info please email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are looking for an intimate wedding, just the tow of you and few others people more, this is the perfect set. Not only because you have the possibility to rent the 5 rooms of the house, but becasue you can enjoy a typical italian wedding!
The house is situated only 20 minutes from Florence, we are in the countryside but surrounded by beautiful houses. A house full of details where the owner is an avid interior designer that develop the house and it surrounding every single year. Now, they are re-designed the garden and the parking for the guests.
As everyone know “The Great beauty” directed by Paolo Sorrentino won the Oscar as the best foregner movie just last Sunday.
If you did not watch the movie I suggest to do it not because the movie is beautiful but for the alle beauties of Rome! Do you know that you can use as a location for your wedding some of the location used in the movie?
Villa medici is the marvellous villa on the top of Trinità dei Monti where it is possible to rent the space for the reception of your wedding as well as sleep in the rooms of the villa, only in that way your wedding will be a royal style wedding!
UPDATES: If you plan a religiuos wedding in Rome, please be sure to reserve at leat one year ahead. Major churches in Rome during peack season such as June-July, end of August and September have lots of requests. This is not applicable if you think on marrying civilly.
