From Super Tuscan Wedding Planners… I personally met with Rob and Becca for the first time in June 2013, and since the very beginning we discovered a strong feeling among me, my wife Arianna, Rebecca and Robert. They were enthusiastic about the town of Cortona — a real pearl of Tuscany — its sights and the villa for their wedding. And the wedding day absolutely reflected all their first excitement!!

The wedding started on a fresh morning, sunny as never before, and more than exciting for our Becca & Rob! The ladies started preparing in the early morning: the Bridesmaids with beautiful violet long dresses and the Bride with a stunning mermaid white lace wedding gown with a ribbon on the back. The colors chosen by the Bride and Groom for their wedding day were violet and yellow. The sunflowers for the Bridesmaids’ bouquets really seemed the best choice for a Tuscan wedding! The Groom had a blue suit and a violet color tie, in perfect style with the Bridesmaids’ dresses.

Ready for the ceremony, the guests and the Groom reached the town hall of Cortona for the most important moments of our Bride & Groom’s lives! The emotions were perceivable in the air and it couldn’t have been more magic with the string quartet and two beautiful souls happily in love and marrying once for a lifetime! The main square of Cortona then enjoyed their happiness along with their 180 guests.

It was amazing to see our lovely couple coming out into the sun at the top of the giant staircase of Cortona’s town hall, and see them enjoying their guests down until the last step. Moreover, it was a special day for the town as well, and as Becca & Rob reached the main square of the town, at the bottom of the staircase, a group of drums entered the square dressed with historic costumes. I admit, it was not planned, but a real wonderful soundtrack for such a moment!

Just one last detail I cannot forget about Becca & Rob’s wedding…their emotional speeches and those of their parents and guests. They included all those moments, emotions, troubles, efforts and deserved successes that this couple had in their last year and for me that year didn’t mean just wedding planning, but an important part of my life, made of lots of lessons.. and I’m proud of having been the wedding planners of Becca & Rob!

Rustic Italian Dream Wedding in Tuscany

A wedding in Tuscany planned by Italy Weddings? It sounds like a dream, and from the looks of David Bastianoni‘s stunning images below this couples’ big day was everything you could possible imagine and more. With a rustic yet elegant feel and pretty little details around every corner, this gallery is filled with too much pretty to count.

From Italy Weddings…As Stacey and Chris say, they did not have a totally clear idea, or a strong theme for their event, but communicating with them, we were able to understand their personal style, and get to know what were the important points essential to their wedding week in Tuscany. So often for a wedding in a land with so much character and personality as Tuscany, and with a villa such as this, it can be better to allow the location, the local cuisine and culture, and the architecture and style of the setting be the theme, rather them imposing anything more forceful on top of that. And Tuscany does this so well: simple but tasty food, welcoming people, stunning hilltop villages such as Volterra, where this lovely couple were married. We dipped in to the resources of the area, and created a special day for the couple never to forget. Marisa and Ben worked closely with the bride and groom on the floral design and the lighting project, to make the mood of the wedding day special, a strong belief for us, in a location where the guests are staying for a full week is to make the wedding event clearly a special, important and thought out day.

From the Bride…Both Chris and I are avid travelers so it was natural for us to get engaged in London and then, that same trip, while on a week-long cycling tour of Tuscany have the seed planted to actually get married in this beautiful part of Italy. We live in Canada but have family & friends spread all over (me being a native Canadian and Chris finding his way here via New Zealand and Australia) coast-to-coast across Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, England so we decided to make a week of it and invite our closest people to a villa just outside of Volterra in the stunning Tuscan country-side. Ben Singleton of Italyweddings was absolutely indispensable seeing as we planned and orchestrated the entire week from Vancouver, primarily via email and only had the luxury of meeting him in person for the first time once we arrived in Italy. We did not have crystal clear vision of our day, expect that we wanted to keep in natural, rustic but with a touch of whimsy and elegance so as not to take away from the unbelievable natural scenery – and it was all that and more! From the luxurious and comfortable family style accommodations, catered dinners followed by 4am dance parties (more than 1!) , a wedding that went off without a hitch in the jaw-dropping town hall of Volterra and many, many bottles of wine.  We could not have done it without Ben and his team. We thank David Bastianoni SO much for all he did for us. Everything was manic and amazingly crazy and David was able to shoot some absolutely beautiful shots we will adore forever. As our hashtag says, #IdoItaly — and we certainly did!

From Greg Finck Ciara and Mark are an Irish couple from Belfast, Ireland, and had chosen sunny Tuscany for their wedding. When you’re used to grey sky and pouring rain, it’s hard not to totally fall for Tuscany, that fabulous part of Italy calling for bathing sun, easy lifestyle and awesome food and wine.

At the very first contact, Ciara and Mark explained me that they wanted a very intimate wedding, with just forty guests, to focus on the essential, and enjoy their loved ones. They had chosen a magnificent historical Villa – Villa Piaggia – in the heart of Tuscany, to tie the knot. This venue is ideally located, surrounded by square miles of Chianti vineyards and breath-taking landscapes. All of their forty guests had met there for 4 days of celebration, and spend time together.

The d-day has been perfectly planned and designed by Ben Singleton, from Italy Weddings, an American who has been based in Tuscany for years, organizing weddings there. A simple table enhanced by a giant flower garland and fairy lights created a very charming and warm atmosphere. Floral design made of pastel peonies was everywhere, from the Bride’s bouquet to the church decoration.

To keep on that pastel theme, we decided to do the couple session in the middle of olive trees, surrounded by tall grass and a magnificent sun. The couple and their guests then enjoyed a typical Italian meal made of handmade pasta with figs, beef with brunello sauce and rosemary roast potatoes. This beautiful summer day ended with the cutting of a giant millefoglie wedding cake.

From the Bride and Groom…Several months have passed, but we are still thinking about it every day, seriously! It was such a beautiful day, we just can’t stop talking about it. Especially now we’ve received the photo’s and made the album, we get a lot of oohs and ahs. The photo’s are, beside the rings, the only tangible memory that remains after such a special day and boy are they beautiful. Such an eye for detail and the Tuscan sun really shines it’s magic light. We are so happy with the results!

We want to thank you so much for all you’ve done to make sure this was the best day of our lives. We had an instant positive feeling with Trouwen in Toscane right from the moment we visited the locations and were sure that this was going to be the best day ever, just like we dreamed. There were sò many emails with some impossible requests from our part, but you still managed to arrange it all!

Your creativity, professionalism and relaxed attitude were key to everything, we could never have accomplished this by ourselves. As far as we are concerned, you are the perfect team.

From Trouwen In ToscaneOn a sunny day Willeke and Rutger came to Tuscany to find a venue and church for their wedding. I remember taking them to one of my favourite wedding locations, a romantic chapel surrounded by vineyards. Exactly as one would expect when coming to Tuscany. Upon arrival Willeke and Rutger looked at each other and knew right there and then that it was the perfect place for them.

From where we were standing I pointed to the castle where we would go right after. Standing on a hilltop this castle is everything a couple might want, and after we visited it together they absolutely agreed! They wanted both the civil and religious ceremony and right next to the castle stands a romanesque church built in 1000 a.d. Perfect!

It didn’t take long for them to decide and very soon after their visit we received the Save the Date and started planning their Tuscan wedding weekend with lots of personalised details such as the Alfa Romeo Spider 1600 with their wedding date on the license plate. The wedding date was also sewn into the suit of the groom and of course we hàd to play around with sparklers at night to make sure none of the guests would forget 20-06-2014.

From FunkyBird Wedding DesignFor the church decoration we decided to go with lots of peach coloured avalanche roses and babies breath. The bouquet was a mix of peach, grey and white and looked beautiful together with the brides delicate but stunning lace wedding dress. Of course we did not forget the little flower girls and made wreaths of babies breath for them and little flower baskets to carry as they walked down the aisle.

On the dinner table we decided to add some DIY elements and sprayed tin cans and prosecco bottles in gold and copper tones. All of this filled with Sweet pea, peach coloured stock flowers, hypericum berries and white lisianthus. Instead of going with the usual white candles we preferred grey ones and peach paper lanterns were hanging down from the balcony.

We really enjoyed working with Willeke and Rutger and FunkyBird Photography captured the whole day perfectly. The delicate colours and beautiful surroundings shine through on all the images.
