From Les Amis Photo…Country chic wedding of Claire and James in Tuscany. The couple chose Terre di Nano as their wedding venue: a country farmhouse located near Siena, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and woods, with a gorgeous outdoor garden and stunning panoramic views on the Val D’Orcia Valley and its magnificent natural scenery. This venue allows the couple to celebrate surrounded by family and friends, in fact all the guests were accommodated here. The event at Terre di Nano lasted three days, with a welcome dinner the day before the wedding, and a farewell brunch the day after.
The welcome dinner was a pizza party with traditional Italian bruschetta and crostini, and different types of pizza made on the spot in the pizza oven of the venue. On the wedding day, the symbolic ceremony was held in the panoramic area accompanied by a string quartet. The cocktail was served in the panoramic area together with local specialties: Tuscan salami, pecorino cheese from Pienza with mustards/jams, plums with crispy bacon, vegetarian rustic pizzas, mix of croutons, and breads/breadsticks and ciaccini. The string quartet played also during cocktail performing classic and modern songs.
The sit down dinner was served under the olive trees with lights placed on the branches. The simple and tasty dishes are full of flavors of Tuscany and are made with local produce.
• First courses: Risotto with pecorino and balsamic vinegar + Pasta with pesto of zucchini, leeks
and salty ricotta cheese
• Main course: Roast pig in sweet and sour sauce + Sliced beef
• Side dishes: White beans of Monticchiello with tomato sauce + Roast potatoes and rosemary
• Dessert buffet
• Wedding cake: 2-layered millefeuille cake with chantilly cream, covered with fresh strawberries
After the cake cutting the couple and guests moved to the cellar for the after party, where the dancing lasted until 2 pm. The next day the farewell brunch with cereals, yogurt, home-made cakes, home made bread, cold cuts (salame, ham), pecorino cheese, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, jams, honey, nutella…pasta and rice salad, cereals salad, cherry tomatoes, mozzarellas, cheeses, mixed salad and frittata. For the wedding favors the couple chose tiny elegant heart shaped bottles of olive oil, produced locally at Terre di Nano.
