From Enzo Miccio… Who doesn’t dream about a wedding in an enchanting forest where nature is the protagonist? For those who love natural greenery and the wild, the forest offers a unique and surreal atmosphere in which the architecture is determined by the nature, where timeless reigns.

This was the mood with which Anna and Philip united each other in marriage: he, a charming boy coming from South Africa, her, an English and sweet girl, who dreamed to reality of looking like a fairytale princess. Both of them wanted to be the protagonist of the fairytale atmosphere, where enchanted creatures, fairies and elves were the co-stars in this magical and enchanted wedding.

After long and careful research, the famous wedding planner Enzo Miccio, commissioned by the couple, found in Tuscany the ideal place to organize their special wedding. Moreover, Tuscany is a place of charm especially for British people.

Anna and Philip chose to celebrate their wedding in June 2014 with a fabulous 3-day outdoor wedding event in a elegantly-decorated area at the beautiful Borgo Pignano, a 750-acre country estate between Volterra and San Gimignano. The thoroughly enchanting Pignano estate features an elegant 18th Century manor house and surrounding stone farmhouses, gardens, meadows, pools, small lakes, orchards, woodlands and waterfalls.

Unfortunately the weather prediction of that weekend was disastrous. Luckily Enzo Miccio, knows how quickly Tuscany climate could change, therefore during the organization of the wedding event he prepared a plan B, C and D, too.

How could he realize the dream of Anna who looked at him with her big blue eyes, and to whom he had promised the staging of a fairytale? The dark clouds never left us, until 5pm, when a storm arrived which hit us with such violence that left us all in silence. The torchon of flowers, organza curtains, the little chairs in white wood decorated with wreaths of olive trees and ivy, the string ensemble, the bridesmaids with their wonderful dress in satin and chiffon, beautiful bouquet made with proteas (flower that Anna dedicated to Philip), peonies, roses and sand-colored sweet pea… everything seemed to have been broken.

Enzo ran to embrace and reassure Anna, everything would be just as well, that she would have this very special marriage, she only had to wait a while before marrying her Phil. A flute of champagne to make her smile return and then Enzo went into the forest with his gray soaked attire. He summoned Philip’s best men and his assistants under a weak but always relentless rain. So armed with rags they dried the chairs, created a makeshift gazebo to protect musicians, distributed 200 white umbrellas, and replaced the damaged flowers.

Finally, Enzo ran to Anne with the sealed wonderful Valentino white macramé wedding shoes and told to her that her wedding dream would become reality anyway, even with the weather.

And so it was… Anna and Philip had their enchanted fairytale and after the ceremony, the couple and their guests from the UK, South Africa and all around the world, enjoyed aperitifs on the pretty lawns overlooking the breathtaking Tuscan countryside views before the wedding banquet was served in a marquee in the gardens in front of the manor house.

After the wedding banquet and after cutting of the wedding cake – which had been delicately and beautifully decorated by the bride’s mum – the couple and their guests danced the night away on the dancefloor of an open marquee, decorated with chandeliers, pretty sofas and fabulous floral arrangements.

Romantic Italian Villa Boudoir Session

An ethereal boudoir session in a sixteenth century Italian villa? Seriously, is this real? Lucky for us it is and Greg Finck’s pics show in all their beyond beautiful glory that Italy is the place to be for such effortless beauty. Villa Buonaccorsi was the perfect backdrop for Honey and Cinnamon Italian Wedding Planners’ shoot, complete with a gown that makes me go gaga. See all this gorgeous goodness right here!

From Greg Finck PhotographyThe Marche Region in Italy is unknown to many. It is however breathtakingly beautiful thanks to a very rich artistic, cultural and culinary heritage. The region is full of amazing landscapes with vineyard-covered hills plunging into the sea, and wonderful venues such as Villa Buonaccorsi. This majestic venue located on the hills was the perfect backdrop to this shoot.

Designer Honeymoon and Cinnamon Italian Wedding Planner imagined this boudoir shoot, inspired by the architectural style of the venue, dating back from 1500. The interior design of the venue is indeed full of walls in neutral colors and empty rooms echoing of ancient splendors with frescoed ceilings and huge windows facing the interior patio.

We opted for a neutral color palette to highlight the effortless beauty of our bride. Floral design was perfectly nailed by Italian floral designer Isa Events and our bride evolved in a beautiful and fluid Cortana gown. The olive tree hair accessory, designed by The Wild Rose reminded of the Roman ancient Italian empire, and still echoes the ancient gloriousness of this Villa and region.

From Super Tuscan Wedding PlannersThis romantic couple traveled to Italy with their entire family for their blessing. This is Ingrid and Jeroen’s special wedding in Tuscany! Ingrid and Jeroen decided that pure nature would be the key player for their big day! The wedding ceremony was held in a wheat field set within the Tuscan countryside with olive groves in the background. Bales of straw decorated with pretty white fabric and cushions were used for seating instead of the classical benches or chairs…can you imagine anything more country? Simplicity was the keyword to their union but the details were what made this country wedding in Tuscany special!

The morning started with the ladies getting ready in a venue near the beautiful Tuscan town of Cortona. The bride and the little bridesmaids decorated their heads with braids, flowers and colorful ribbons and a red Fiat 500 car took them to the ceremony location. The bride’s white gown and the bridesmaids’ white dresses were the perfect contrast with the rural Tuscan landscape and the symbolic wedding ceremony began with the best premises! And it seemed that not only Ingrid and Jeroen were going to get married but that their three daughters would join in as they sat with their parents in front of the celebrant! As unusual as the bride’s orange shoes and the handmade wedding rings were, the ceremony was touching as well as amusing! And all those present that day would surely agree!

This couple requested an eco & country wedding and that’s exactly what they got! The ring cushion was pure country style: a bunch of straw nicely tied up with string, with two white roses as decoration. The dominating color was white with pink details here and there, in places such as the bouquets hanging from the trees, all the details at the wedding reception table and the wedding cake that was tastefully decorated with edible rose colored flowers! Well, even the champagne was rose & pink!

The great Tuscan sun shining bright in the sky and the joy of this happy day made this country wedding in Tuscany perfect in its simplicity! The couple then decided to have a religious blessing, this was very important for them and the three little bridesmaids. And now this story ends..well, at least their wedding day does, ‘cause this couple started their new life together by taking a journey through the Tuscan countryside and its most beautiful cities like Cortona, on board a vintage & country red Fiat 500 car!

Romantic Jewish Terrace Wedding in Tuscany

When your venue happens to be a villa owned by an Italian designer (ever heard of the Ferragamo family?) your wedding is guaranteed to have style. David Bastianoni was behind the lens of this country-chic affair with an imperial twist, Italia Celebrations created a picturesque day complete with L’Arte Della Torta Di Melanie Secciani cakes and endless romance.

From David BastianoniIn the heart of Tuscany lies Il Borro , a spectacular Relais and Chateaux owned by the Ferragamo family perfect for a wedding with big style!

The ceremony was held in the big space near the Villa, where the Groom arrived with all their friends, and the Bride (lovely in her dress) with her mum.

Bridesmaids in their beautiful dresses — pastel blue and bouquets in pale pink, create an atmosphere of fairy tale. The Groomsmen in a country-chic style, make it even more impressive ceremony.

All the emotions are read on the faces of the two mothers … and you know … the mother is always the mother!!!

Everything was continued in the wonderful Italian garden and guests were entertained by the typical Italian products and sparkling wine, between song and typical Jewish dance.

The two imperial tables in the terrace of the Villa created a picturesque view and warm color where everyone enjoyed the delicious dinner, while the gorgeous flower arrangements created a friendly and romantic atmosphere for all.

From the Melanie NedelkoMyself and the Event Designer and Planner, Elisabeth & Lorinda, from A Very Beloved Wedding, produced and creatively directed a Styled Shoot called “Toscana Nascosta” based on Goethe’s Italian journey. This shoot is about slipping away from duties, trying to discover yourself through the things you see, finding a meaning to words, learning to know yourself by and through objects of beauty, getting inspired, feeling free, happy and in love… unconditional love. Goethe was seeking paradise, just as we do, and he found it in Italy, just as we did.

Tuscany, Italy is near my base in Austria, so I love to spend holidays there from time to time. The unique nature, pine trees, olive trees, good red wine, lemons and delicious food – there is no more delightful spot to celebrate “la dolce vita” than in Tuscany! It was like a dream come true capturing this delicate wedding inspiration on film. The light is very special – it’s a perfect destination for photographers and of course for a wedding! I hope you all feel inspired when watching our vision of a perfect wedding in Tuscany!

From A Very Beloved WeddingThe Design and Styling was all about lemons and olive trees, spring and summer, white sculptures and forbidden gardens. The color palette was lemon yellow, olive green, off-white and beige and gold accents, the atmosphere and experience was Mediterranean, the materials were organic, woody and silky, the stationery was soft and natural, the flowers fresh and free and the couple elegant, agile and in love. We were so inspired by the place and setting that we even wrote a poem. There is no doubt: Italy surprises us and makes us even more creative.

Spring under my feet
Summer in my heart
It is because of you, I can feel the perfumes of blossoming spring flowers
Because of you I love the fresh lemons in my mouth
Because of you I see white sculptures in forbidden gardens
Because of you I feel this moment
