Pretty pink David Austin roses, a delicate lace dress and a luxurious hotel reception overlooking the rooftops of Old Town Florence, with the guests sipping cocktails as the sun goes down – yes, today’s summer soiree is destination wedding heaven!
Zoe and Guy decided to wave goodbye to their typically rainy home in the UK and jet-off with their nearest and dearest to Florence in Italy to tie the knot outdoors with a sunshine-filled garden ceremony at the unique five star Villa Tolomei Hotel.
This exceptional renaissance villa resort not only delivered on the Italian character front, it also enabled the bride, groom and their guests to enjoy a totally private, rural wedding day with a chic city right on the doorstep, just waiting to be explored over the wedding weekend.

Alyona and Pavel tied the knot in their homeland of Russia, however on previous vacations to Italy they’d fallen head over heels for this beautiful country and felt that they’d left a little piece of their hearts there.
So they decided to organise a symbolic wedding and a ‘day-after’ photo shoot in Tuscany so that they could have the best of both worlds – a wedding closer to home and a celebration in their most favourite place.
The morning started at the charming character-filled rooms of Valdirose, just outside of Florence before heading out into the rustic Tuscan countryside. Tania from Neverending Magic was behind the lens to capture the abundance of romance that filled the day and the stunningly beautiful scenery.

No wonder Tuscany is one of the most popular destination wedding locations in the world. Rich in down-to-earth Italian culture, this relaxed yet indulgent region of Italy offers every wedding style that a wanderlust couple could wish for.
From elegant castles to stunning churches, from exclusive villas to rustic farmhouses, Tuscany delivers Italian charm personified, all wrapped up in breath taking countryside and with a hearty side order of incredible food, vino and world-class hospitality for good measure. Sounds pretty good right?!
Ainar and Dodi having previously visited Tuscany together knew how delightful a destination it was. So when they started their search for neutral ground in which to tie the knot, the beauty and romanticism of this region was an obvious choice.
Historical Villa Barberino, in Meleto played host to their informal yet oh-so-elegant celebration. The couple said ‘I Do’ outside in the glorious sunlit grounds, surrounded by their loved ones before enjoying alfresco dining as the sun set.
The super-talented Tania of Neverending Magic was also on hand to capture the joyful ambience of the day on camera.
Marissa & Phil ♥ Tuscany, Italy

Try and picture the most-dreamy Italian wedding in Tuscany that you can imagine…
You will probably envisage an intimate, atmospheric ceremony held within a tiny old chapel in a traditional Italian village, followed by a fairytale castle wedding reception overlooking the rolling Tuscan countryside, the warm summer sun setting behind the vineyards and the hills sitting in the distance whilst you and your guests sip champagne and cocktails on the impressive outdoor terrace. Sounds like destination wedding heaven doesn’t it?!
Well that’s exactly the delightful kind of day that today’s bride and groom enjoyed. Marissa and Phil had a dreamy castle wedding in Italy. They held their wedding reception within a restored 9th century castle in Tuscany, set high upon the Chianti hills, watching over the medieval village and the river beyond. Their tremendously talented wedding planner – Weddings In Italy – perfectly complimented the location with a theme that focussed on natural beauty, delicate details and pretty pale pinks, whilst the ambience of the day was captured faultlessly by the gifted, fine art photographer Jessica Burke.
