Hayely & Lain – Destination Wedding Tuscany
Hayely and Lain, a couple from the UK, decided to have their destination wedding in Tuscany. Not far from home, it is the perfect location with the most spectacular romantic settings on earth. Passion runs through every vein of life in Italy guaranteeing that their special day would be memorable. As a venue choice, the couple decided to have a rustic wedding at the Vignamaggio located in the heart of Chianti. The 13th-century villa and the estate are near the Greve River where you’ll find rolling hills, endless vineyards, and forests – spectacular views without end. A little trivia on Vignamaggio is that it was the location for the film Much Ado About Nothing based on Shakespeare’s play – you can’t get any more romantic than that.
The ceremony was held in front of the historic facade of the villa with its terra cotta hues providing the perfect backdrop.
One of the main reasons the couple said they chose Tuscany was because of the food and wine here. Only in Italy can you find the simplest, freshest ingredients that are magically transformed into feasts for royalty. They knew that it would just make their wedding that more special to their friends and family. The venue also boasts award winning Chianti Classico wines – la dolce vita!
We spent three days planning a pre-pizza party for the guests when they arrived, the rehearsal dinner BBQ and of course the culmination of it all – the reception held in the Giardino dei Lecci.
Three large chandeliers were hung over the table to create the perfect atmosphere when the sun went down.
The bride was shining in her elegant gown with hairvine laid in softly curled locks. The bouquet accented it all so perfectly like it was all made for this perfect moment.
