A wedding under the Tuscan sun!

 Loro Ciuffenna is not one of the main towns or villages that come to mind when you think of Tuscany. However what is so great  about this town is it is real, not just for tourists but a place where the locals sip spritz in the late afternoon sun and Paulo shouts at Max across the road about the football... The rest of the town is peaceful and sleepy!

Inside this hidden gem are four restaurants all of which are perfect locations for any event surrounding your wedding and extended stay for your guests.

Located a short drive away is one of my favourite villa's for a private Villa destination wedding in Italy. I have pondered if my admiration is because of the love and care that goes in to this villa or if it is more because of the team who run it with such kind hearts... either way it is such a lovely welcoming villa that it feels like a private home, making it a great backdrop for your wedding weekend!
The Villa is so perfect it needs little to no sales pitch, that is why I'm going to focus the photographs on weddings at this beautiful villa...
Villa Belpoggio is a beautiful historical house, located in the Chianti area on the slopes of Pratomagno mountains, making a perfect location for exploring the areas famous towns of Florence and Siena as well as the beautiful countryside and thousands of small Tuscan villages and towns.

The garden with its panoramic swimming-pool and the landscape all around the Villa offer incredible views over the Chianti hills. Mix the ambiance with genuine Tuscan hospitality you and your guests will be left with unforgettable memories of this beautiful Villa.

Offering a sense of formality however at the same time remaining informal and welcoming, this small charming boutique villa hotel has retained the feeling of a private home.

There are 2  beautiful town halls, both located in historical towns less than 20 mins away, that are laden with character and the perfect setting for a romantic Italian civil wedding.

Kate and Pete were married in a very simple ceremony the day before their religious blessing

There are 4 different churches in the local area where you can celebrate your marriage with a Catholic mass. The local priest speaks fluent English and is a lovely man who makes your wedding celebration very special.
Joanne and Dave celebrated their wedding in a medieval church set in the olive groves less than 2 miles from the villa.
Other religious weddings may be celebrated in the Chapel on site or in the garden. Unfortunately Catholic weddings may not be celebrated here because it is a private Church and only the Catholic wedding of a family member can be celebrated here.

Luckily the Chaplin from Florence is happy to come out and celebrate Church of England and Church of America weddings.
