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
The Castle of Vincigliata is still one of our favorite locations for a wedding in Firenze / Wedding in Florence. Each time, this stunning castle is able to bring forth a fairy tale.
Perched on a hill, the venue offers a great view of Florence and exudes so much history to make you feel you were back in the Middle Age
But this couple decided to use the location in a very original way. They created a wedding colors story.
It was the first time we saw this idea and we really loved it.
During the ceremony, held by the great celebrant Jo Bertolino from TuscanPledges, many symbols linked to the colors were used for describe the love of this beautiful and very young couple.
All during the day the decorations they used was simple but so powerful because it reminded everyone of these colors and the meanings of their love love during this wedding day in Tuscany.
We were pleased to work with the wedding photographer Rosapaola Lucibelli who created with us a lovely team of professionals to capture this couple’s wedding day in the best way.
“Wedding colors” was a special day for us. The bride came on a carriage drawn by white horses from the center of the city of Florence (it’s a special service available in Florence)
After the windy ceremony (wind is a symbol of power), all the guests with coloured balloons created a beautiful effect flying all toghether all those colors in the blue sky of that day.
After the main dish, the bride dedicated a very touching song to her groom singing and playing guitar.
We were very happy to had the opportunity to create a video for them, trying to catch and conveying all these feelings with as much details as possible, and with our editing and shooting style. Enjoy the video.
