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

Luckily, Lisa Poggi and Mattello Trombello shared the whole weekend with us in the gallery here!

From the beautiful bride… Tarek and I had our wedding weekend in Florence Italy. We both live in Miami, Florida. My parents immigrated to the Bahamas in the 70′s but my extended family still lives in Italy. Tarek was born and raised in Toronto, Canada but his parents immigrated from Pakistan. We decided to have a destination wedding in Italy. However, we wanted to also incorporate Tarek’s culture into the weekend activities. Instead of having a regular welcome party or rehearsal dinner we decided to have a Mehndi Party for all the wedding guests. Let me tell you — this was not an easy task! Bringing this type party to a rustic Tuscan city was pretty hard!!

Daniela, at The Tuscan Wedding, took on the task and I think did a pretty fantastic job. The location was at an agritourism of all places! This location has a few apartments and a restaurant on a farm. It took us months to find a location that would fit what we needed. We needed a large enough space to hold 115 people and have enough room for dancers. We found a talented group of Indian dancers from Rome who came and did a few dancing shows for us. The place was beautifully decorated with colorful drapes, ethnic decorations and lighting. Most guests participated and dressed up. It was definitely a cultural experience for many of the guests, who living in Italy, have never had the opportunity to see. This was a fantastic way to start off the wedding weekend.

Rustic Norwegian Wedding in Tuscany

Can we just agree that getting married in Tuscany is what wedding dreams are made of? Surrounded by olive groves, the authenticity of this affair is overwhelmingly breathtaking. From their garden ceremony to the courtyard reception, Facibeni Fotografia shared every darling detail with us here!

From Photographer Facibeni FotografiaCatherine and Nils chose to celebrate their wedding on an estate in the pristine Tuscan countryside. Along with their families and their close friends, they chose an old village to spend a few days relaxing with their loved ones due to the good food and the many experiences that the region offers to visitors.



The estate “ Quercia al Poggio” is the place they chose to celebrate the ceremony and organize the reception. The estate is an ancient Tuscan village surrounded by olive groves; completely built in stone, it is one of those authentic places where you can still feel the atmosphere of a few years ago. There are no ultra sharp TVs, and it is more likely to meet a donkey that a Wi-Fi signal. Well … a place of those where you leave heart and spirit!



The ceremony took place in the garden. A short but very intense rite, in which families and guests attended moved, in an almost surreal silence, interrupted only by birdsongs.

 In a place so beautiful and romantic, the photo shoot could not but be exciting. I chose to portray the couple simply, during a walk on the dirt road that winds through the property.



The dinner was held in the courtyard, between the ancient stone walls of the village. The T table has been prepared in a simple way, with flowers of the territory. Dinner was delicious, with delicious dishes of meat and mushrooms, and the inevitable red wine produced on the estate of Quercia al Poggio.



The speeches were endless! The Norwegian tradition in fact wants, in addition to the wedding party, that even friends say a few words to wish good luck to the marriage.

From Facibeni FotografiaIf we talk about weddings and elopements, Tuscany is one of the most beautiful destinations. Florence is the most popular location for weddings between art, history and secular Italian culture.

For those who are looking for something rustic, the beautiful colored hills and dirt roads surrounded by cypress trees are ideal for intimate elopements in the midst of pristine nature: moving celebrations, amid the noise of the cicadas and the rustling of the wind.



Borgo Santo Pietro is one of the most beautiful resorts in the entire region. It is two steps away from the secular Abbey of San Galgano, in a pristine natural area. The village consists of a central structure that houses the reception hall and the restaurant, around which stand many villas surrounded by flower gardens, olive groves and cypress trees.

The villas are fully built of stone, and refurbished by the European property respecting the old architectural standards of the old village. A timeless place to relax and spend the days in luxury and relaxation.

Jenny and Michael celebrated an intimate wedding under a weeping willow in front of a lake. It was a moving ceremony, interrupted only by bird songs.



After the ceremony, I took some relaxed pictures of them, as they walked smiling among the flower gardens with the sun behind them, just before sunset. Given the beauty of the place, it was not that difficult. Borgo Santo Pietro is a dreamy location for any wedding photographer. The photo shoot could not be more fascinating and complete.



Borgo Santo Pietro also contains within it a fabulous restaurant, famous throughout Tuscany. There could be no better time for a romantic dinner at dusk: dishes of meat and mushrooms of the territory and a great wine to toast to this fabulous elopement.



No, there’s no better place to get married in than Tuscany. Don’t you think so?
