Tuscany Italy Styled Wedding Shoot
What’s more romantic than a wedding in Tuscany? This styled shoot rivals many concepts of traditional rustic romance. Set at the Conti di San Bonifacio Wine Resort in Maremma, Tuscany, this tranquil and almost transcendent venue is the perfect backdrop to inspire a vintage wedding scene.
Soft tones of blush, peach, and green envelope the room inside. Outside the venue are relics that resemble a pastoral paradise including wine barrels, benches, and beautiful stonework, along with the occasional olive tree.
The bride looks like a Maremma maiden, dressed in a halter-style dress with an embellished neckline and keyhole detail.
She carries a gorgeous bouquet bursting with lovely protea, anemones, roses, and pheasant feathers, and wears a flower crown with roses and greenery.
The groom’s boutonniere echoes the bride’s flower choices with roses and wildflowers. It looks stunning on his navy blue suit. He accessorizes with a navy blue bowtie and looks every bit the suave Italian gentleman.
A ceremony scene is resplendent with antique and shabby chic touches. Wrapped up newspaper holds rose petals for the couple’s exit.
Large feather plumes are tied to the vintage iron chairs, which are also adorned with stems of ivy.
In front of the countryside’s rolling hills and sprawling verdant grass, the couple finally embraces, as their presence is disturbed only by the graceful afternoon breeze.
Turning towards the venue for a reception spot, the couple stands near a table set for six. It’s a lovely presentation with the country table placed in front of the venue’s characteristic exterior.
Instead of complete table linen, the naturally distressed table features a center runner. On top of it are beautiful centerpieces full of pink and purple flowers, and large bright green tapers echoing the color of the landscape. Simple white dinner plates and napkins are paired with gold flatware.
Small dessert plates offer sweet Italian treats, like biscotti, along with pink French macaroons. The cake is a simple two-tier blush creation with lace details and a green satin ribbon. It’s topped with delicate pink peonies.
The invitation suite is most appropriate for this shoot, as it resembles the beautiful floral details and soft pastels with its nostalgic graphics. All the pieces exceptionally match for one unified collection.
The couple embraces near a pool in a quiet corner of the venue. It’s a refreshing scene with the unexpected light blue water and green ivy-colored roof in the background.
The bride and groom then ascend from the venue and stroll along the gravel path through the countryside. They eventually make their way to the grapevines, softly coming together in between the rows of grapes.
Everything about this shoot shouts “Tuscany!” Not only is it incredibly beautiful but its idyllic style and setting is representative of everything there is to adore about the wondrous location. This styled shoot takes rustic romance to a whole new level, inspiring a wedding described as nothing short of “molto bello.”
