An Unforgettable Wedding at the Abbazia di San Giusto – Tuscania
Alexandra and Lorenzo, a delightful couple from France and Italy, fell in love with Tuscania. This charming historic town surrounded by ancient walls is only a few kilometres south of Tuscany and close to the Argentario towards Rome. Tuscania was for a long time their secret getaway until they decided to make it the venue of their wedding ceremony. The Abbazia di San Giusto for the wedding reception was incredible, adding a touch of magic to the festive event. Their guests from all over the world, the Italian countryside, the lovely weather and the lavender fields created just the right atmosphere for this joyful weekend.
The Bride and Groom got ready for the ceremony in the spacious ancient rooms of the Abbazia. They arrived at the Cattedrale di San Giacomo in the cobbled centro storico of Tuscania in a 1962 Alfa Romeo (one of the groom’s passions). Here they found their guests and the wonderful World Spirit Orchestra, a Gospel Choir (one of the bride’s passions), already waiting for them.
Musicarancio, a superb live band, set a perfect atmosphere at the reception and party with their music. They were also responsible for the installation of ambient lighting and the charming play of lights which added extra magic to the wedding celebration after sunset.
The Bride and the Groom wish to thank their parents for all the love and patience that went into the preparation of the wedding. They are the very best thing that could have happened to their daughter and son. Without them nothing of all this would have been possible. Particular thanks go to Padre Gabriele for organising such an inspiring and energetic Mass in French and Italian. And very special thanks indeed go to all their guests for being there and making their wedding day truly unforgettable.
Dear friends, please enjoy the video of the wedding highlights of the wonderful wedding weekend shared with Alexandra and Lorenzo in June.
Stunning wedding at Villa La Foce near Montepulciano
Just in this wedding season we’ve discovered Villa La Foce, we’ve never been there and the place it’s really incredible. So this wedding at Villa la Foce it has been for us a great occasion for new inspirations, both for the amazing location but especially for having met a really nice couple: S. and S. come from Brazil and Holland and they were really attracted from beauty of Tuscany when they chose where to celebrate their wedding.
The whole event took place in Villa La Foce, treasuring all the beauties and corners of the villa. After the getting ready of bride and groom, in two elegant suites inside, we had the ceremony in the stunning italian garden in front of the building: it’s one of the most beautiful garden we’ve ever seen with his colors, scents, lines and perfect geometry…really a gem!
Then after the aperitif and the dinner, for cutting the cake and dancing, we moved to another characteristic spot: the ancient limonaia.
The whole day was amazing and perfectly organized by the wedding planner Cecilia Righini
Jennifer and Jesse are a beautiful young couple from New York, and so in love. Their love for travel and for Italy inspired them to marry in Florence, one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
The entire event was held in Villa la Vedetta, a unique location with picturesque scenery which set the stage for a day full of great memories and emotions.
While the bride and groom got ready, we were really touched by the first look between Jennifer and her father. He did one of the most touching speech we’ve ever heard… thank you very much for this great moment!
After the first look between the bride and the groom, the ceremony started and was very beautiful, full of deep and real feelings and filled with touching vows.
For us it was a great honor to be a part of such an amazing wedding, with lovely people from all over the world, full of smiles, friendliness and so much kindness…we really would love to thank everyone, one by one!
We would especially like to thank photographer Sophie Epton for her great professionalism, but also for the great skill and patience. She was in a tricky situation, serving as both the official photographer and a beautiful bridesmaid!
A very special thank to Fabrizio Mengasini of Prestige Weddings Italy, for perfectly planning the day and for the great collaboration. Everything was flawless, the food amazing, and it all came together to make the day unforgettable.
Weddings in Orvieto, amazing and romantic venue at “La Badia di Orvieto” in Umbria
Weddings in Orvieto are always fascinating especially in the amazing location of “La Badia di Orvieto”, one of the most beautiful places for a wedding.
A. and A. are a great couple who choseUmbria to celebrate their unique day. The wedding took place at “La Badia di Orvieto” a amazing location in the heart of Italy: it was a Benedictine abbey in 1100, now converted into luxury hotels. We love it very much and everything was perfect: an intimate catholic ceremony in the beautiful church within the village, the dinner by candlelight with an extraordinary atmosphere and the surroundings of the city of Orvieto as background and an incredible party with good music, lights, laser and smoke effect…a show in the show! 🙂
We think that Orvieto is a one of the best wedding destination in Italy for all couples that like something really romantic and special.
We made this wedding video in May 2015 and it was our first wedding there and that place has really caught our spirit and inspiration for magic atmosphere and incredible beauty.
Surely we will remember a wonderful day, for a event really beautiful with international people and different cultures.
Cortona wedding video, an emotional elopement in Tuscany
Cortona wedding video, a couple very sweet and deeply in love, an amazing venue as Villa Ugo, are all ingredients for a wedding that was really in our hearts. Tuscany is always one of the best wedding destinations but to get married in the city of Cortona is in our view something very romantic and special.
L. and A. are a beautiful couple from New York, that really inspired us. We spent two days with them: first one for a touching blessing ceremony at Villa Ugo, where the voice and words of two celebrants, Giuseppe Rossi and Diane Rossi, with their emotional presentation, made the feelings of the couple clearly understood and moved the family and guests to tears of joy.
The day after, we had civil ceremony in the municipality of Cortona and then a beautiful walk through the romantic streets of the city. During the photo-video session, in addition to the beauty of the medieval old town, from the highest point we could see a wonderful view, among the most beautiful of the Tuscan landscape. Fascinating was also a visit to the historic theater Signorelli in the city of Cortona.
Everything was perfect and in a very intimate atmosphere, in a style of real elopement. The same dinner and then party at the villa has kept sober tone, elegant and classy.
Making this wedding video in Cortona was a great experience for our team and we’d like to say thank you to the Wedding Photographer Domenico Costabile and obviously to L. and A. for inviting us to an event so beautiful full of emotions, with people of many nationalities so kind and friendly.

Wedding films in Tuscany, in the heart of Chianti hills
Wedding films in Tuscany are always a great wedding destination. Especially when you are in the heart of Chianti hills, with a fantastic swedish couple!
A. and R. are a couple so in love, of those couples that you just a moment to read the agreement, the feeling that is in their eyes, in their smiles and gestures. Something really magic can not be found so easily between people.
We spent all the day in the beautiful Agriturismo Le Fonti a San Giorgio: getting ready, ceremony and venue was always in this amazing location in Tuscany in the countryside near Florence.
Weddings Vincigliata Castle | fantastic location and venue near Florence in Tuscany
Weddings Vincigliata Castle are always something special: Castle of Vincigliata is an amazing location on the hills of Florence, in the heartof Tuscany.
This last season we have been there several times… but every time it raised up new emotions! Especially when we have the opportunity to meet such a beautiful couple as K. and A.
They are a couple so sweet and we created for them a very romantic video story, full of love. The ceremony was held in the beautiful garden in front of the castle and it was really touching, thanks also to the voice of the celebrant Jo Bertolino, always professional and emotional: her words have been of great inspiration to build the story line of this video highlights.
After the appetizer, we did a little tour inside the castle for photo and video session, watching from the highest point, the incredible view of Florence.
Later, for dinner, we moved inside and admire an incredible atmosphere, in a mix of colors, soft lights and perfumes.
We are so lucky to travel for destination wedding because we have the opportunity to see new places and different cultures; Greece is really a great place, also for living: friendly people, a pleasant climate and a lifestyle very similar to ours, here in Italy.
F. and A. got married at the beautiful catholic Church in centre of Thira. The Catholic rite is something very special and quite rare in Santorini: we did so even more pleasure to be present at an event so exceptional.
After the ceremony the couple moved to Imerovigli for the photo and video shooting. Needless to say, as the view of the Caldera is something absolutely spectacular and unique in the world!
Then, after this romantic walk in, we went to Aenaon Villas near Oia for aperitief, dinner and party and there we witnessed one of the most beautiful sunsets ever seen.
This wedding was in August 2015. Our first wedding video in Santorini… but we we hope to return soon to a place so magical, full of charm, atmosphere and breathtaking scenery.
Thank you Vangelis Photography for the great day together and Fabio Zardi for incredible flower decorations, details and for planning the event so perfectly.
