A given, because Tuscany just so happens to be an uber-romantic spot for vow exchangin’ and a drop-dead gorgeous locale, to boot. Case in point?

From Cindy Salgado Wedding Design & Events… This wedding was full of magical touches and pretty details that charmed the guests from morning ’till evening. The first time that I got in touch with Lynda and James, they were concerned about not being able to find the venue of their dreams, but after their first visit to Tuscany, they turned back to the UK with different options. They were so excited because Tuscany is truly a magical place. They decided to get married in the grounds of Badia di Campoleone, an extremely secluded venue in Arezzo, with breathtaking surroundings. They really wanted all of their guests to the time of their lives and enjoy their four days staying at Badia, and they did!
The ceremony was as private and romantic as Lynda and James always imagined it to be; the flower arrangements from Franci’s Flowers were stunning and matched perfectly with the natural settings. After the ceremony, they had a cocktail reception at the Italian garden, where an amazing swing band played while the guests had wine, prosecco and delicious Italian appetizers. Then they had the wedding breakfast under a charming Italian gazebo, where they had the lovely speeches full of emotions and many tears! It was a moment that will cherish forever. After the wedding breakfast, they moved into the swimming pool area were we had a photo booth set up with a mythical Italian Vespa. Then, they had the first dance, and while they were dancing, nobody noticed that just behind them, something was lighting up the sky — a hot air balloon that took the guests up and down.
All these magical moments were captured by the lens of Emma Innocenti, Marika and Lucrezia from Studio Innocenti. The video was captured by Wedding Frames. Working with Lynda and James was an absolutely joy! It really was an honor being their wedding planner.
